    Eerie and disturbing, Stephen King s ability to turn the ordinary into extraordinary shines through as a library becomes a living hell and if you don t hand in your overdue books well, god help you This little horror story is definitely a classic.

    This is a story about a boy who gets raped at a public library King does such a good job of describing the feelings of the boy during and afterward, I must give him credit for thorough research or bravery in facing one s own demons Is this horrible Yes Is it well written Yes But the depressing ickyness of this novella is too overwhelming to actually enjoy reading it I read horror for escapism
