Other than Apt Pupil (which I found very disturbing), the short stories in this collection are extremely good. Two of them were produced into very successful and memorable films (The body-> Stand By Me , Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption -> The Shawshank Redemption) and as usually is the case, the original stories are far better than their Hollywood versions.

This book has four short stories; most of which have been made into movies, so you'll likely be familiar with them. King is at the top of his game with these stories. I can't read him much now, he's just too graphic for my tastes. These 4 tales however always stay with me and I recommend it often.

Every story in this book is so interesting, I've recommended this book to my friends and family. A must read!

I only checked this book out to read the novella "The Body" based on my favorite movie of all time, Stand By Me. The details were really good, and I liked the whole story overall.

I always loved Stephen King's short stories. This batch is definitely something to check out. My favorites are Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption and The Body. OMG, absolutely LOVED Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. Its so realistically written and the plot just flows along so smoothly, the tone is great and the main characters felt so real, I loved them. I saw the movie based on 'The Body' before reading the story but it did not stop me from enjoying it. It goes deeper into the boys' lives than the movie does and amazingly written from a teenager's point of view. Overall, a great short story collection.

At the risk of sounding like a lunatic—or offending the author—I find much of King’s work to be rather charming. My favorite thing about his books isn’t the horror aspect (though I consider it a definite plus). The reason I come back to King is his portrayal of the characters he writes about—their friendships and mortal enemies, loves/hates, personal demons, and journeys.
