There is something very reassuringly King about this novella. A quintessentially King short story, which concludes in typical Kingy fashion. However, I didn't like how it ended; I didn't like the ending at all. And it's all about the endings. Good thing Depp changed it and made it better. Savvy?

Okay I'm being dramatic. But I do love them. A lot. Like a lot a lot.

First Stephen King I have read. Loved it...absolutely love his style. As with many of his books I have committed the sin of watching this as a movie before reading it and yes the book is better. It has a completely different ending, and deeper meaning. But (shamefully) it was made all the better that I read Mort Rainey in my minds eye as Johnny Depp. I think that added to the intrigue of the character and I can't say if I regret it or not.

Το Κρυφό Παράθυρο, Μυστικός Κήπος είναι ένα βιβλίο που περιγράφει κατά μία έννοια την εσωτερική σύγχυση, ή και πόλεμο, που μπορεί να βρεθεί ένας συγγραφέας. Σε αντίθεση με άλλα κείμενα του King δεν ήταν ιδιαιτέρως περιγραφικό και είχε γρήγορη ροή, και ακόμα μια φορά κατάφερε να με κάνει να ανατριχιάσω αρκετές φορές. Το 5 χάνεται μόνο και μόνο επειδή σε στιγμές μπορούσα να μαντέψω τη συνέχεια και επειδή ίσως μου θύμισε γνωστή ταινία με τον Edward Norton. Ίσως γι' αυτό μπορούσα να μαντέψω τη συνέχ ...more

I had seen the movie in theaters when it first came out and loved it. I had no idea that is was a Stephen King story. Since I am trying to read the back catalog of King I decided this would be a great quick read.
I really enjoyed it, it has been so long since I have seen the movie that this was almost like my first exposure to it. I did remember a few details so it was easy to follow along. The ending of this was different from the movie, and to be honest, I liked the movie ending better. This w

Ο καθένας βλέπει κάτι. Ο καθένας βλέπει κάτι ξεχωριστό. Ο καθένας διακρίνει διαφορετικά πράγματα. Άλλος το παρατηρεί από άλλη όψη.
Ο συγγραφέας, γενικά ο καλλιτέχνης, παίζει πολλές φορές με το μυαλό του. Πατάει συχνά αυτή την γραμμή που τον διαχωρίζει από την τρέλα. Μια γραμμούλα που μοιάζει με ένα γυάλινο παράθυρο. Τι γίνεται, όμως, όταν το γυαλί αρχίζει να ραγίζει και η πραγματικότητα γίνεται ένα με την φαντασία??!
[Εκτός ότι το βιβλίο είναι ένα α-ρι-στούρ-γη-μα, είναι καταπληκτική η έκδοση που

The best Stephen King story I've read. It's intriguing and creepy without the overly disturbing aspect some of his other stories contain.
