    The Body by Stephen King Such a wonderful story that we can relate to the characters' lives and their interaction with each other. Stephen King did a wonderful job of writing this book about characters in a way that made them seem completely genuine and authentic. The emotions that the author evoked were deep and the ending will have you pondering for a certain long time. Love isn’t soft, like those poets say. Love has teeth which bite and the wounds never close. Charming book. The Body by Stephen King Such a wonderful story that we can relate to the characters' lives and their interaction with each other.

    Stephen King’s wonderful 1982 novella, which was transformed into the classic 1986 film, Stand By Me, four young boys to come of age over a weekend together. Set in 1960, the story takes place in the small town of Castle Rock, Maine, where twelve-year-old Gordie Lachance and his three friends are ready to set out to substantiate the rumours that the body of a missing boy has turned up near the next town. As the boys to begin their summer trek, they must come together to face winding train tracks Stephen King’s wonderful 1982 novella, which was transformed into the classic 1986 film, Stand By Me, four young boys to come of age over a weekend together. Set in 1960, the story takes place in the small town of Castle Rock, Maine, where twelve-year-old Gordie Lachance and his three friends are ready to set out to substantiate the rumours that the body of a missing boy has turned up near the next town. As the boys to begin their summer trek, they must come together to face winding train tracks, a brief dip in an interesting water hole, and a great deal of self-discovery. In a story that seeks to explore the innermost thoughts and feelings of these four, the reader can see that emotions run deep and that the ‘tough guy’ exteriors are only a pre-teen facade. King pulls the reader in from the outset in this well-paced piece, which shows just how amazing youth can be, when tempered with a little sobering maturity. Recommended for those who like King and his various writing styles. No need to be wary, for there is little gore, but enough language that some readers may want to look elsewhere. I always enjoy Stephen King pieces, as they keep me wondering where things will go in his circuitous writing style. There was a strict ban on my reading his novels when I was younger, for reasons I am not entirely sure I remember. My adult years have been spent catching up and I have come to see that King can be a little intense, but he has a great deal I thoroughly enjoy. King offers up a lighter novella here, allowing his characters to develop nicely without the excessive gore. Gordie Lachance is both the presumptive protagonist and the ‘author’ of this story, a flashback piece penned when he was much older. Lachance explores some of the sentiments of his own childhood, as well as honing his skills as a writer. Gordie offers up much development as it relates to his friends, giving the reader a more comprehensive approach to those who populate the story. Through a series of events that weave together into the larger story, King allows his characters to mature through their learning experiences. Keeping the reader engaged throughout this quick read, King shows just how strong his writing can be, close to four decades later. Kudos, Mr. King, for another wonderful piece of writing. I am happy to have stumbled upon this one and will admit that I have not seen Stand By Me in its entirety, which will soon change. Like/hate the review?

It’s about going on an adventure, and saying swear words when out of your parents’ earshot, and trying a cigarette just so you can say you did, and standing up to bullies, and most of all it’s about friendship. Because really? “I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, did you?” I decided to give this one a listen after forcing it on my oldest son in order to make sure he’s actually reading when he says he is. There’s a good chance he’ll choose to be contrary simply to hurt my feelings since even the most decent teenager is still pretty horrible. The good news is I was able to pull a double-whammy and make the youngest listen too on the way to and from his baseball tournament this weekend. He arrived a little late to the party when Gordy and the boys were getting ready to meet Milo Pressman and the notorious “Chopper” and was on the edge of his seat during the train dodge. He completely blew me away when he complained as I hit strategically hit pause at a certain point in the story so we could hear it in full the next morning. And what a morning we had! A total barf-o-rama full of cackling and full-blown guffaws. An obvious must for any Constant Reader and, as far as I’m concerned, anyone else as well. Truly an actual contender when it comes to the “like this or we can’t be friends” option. It’s that good. And the movie is one of the best book-to-screen translations in the history of filmmaking. Perfection. Endnote: This was my third audio book and I finally found a winner. Frank Muller’s voice was just like butter. The only thing that could have been better is if it would have been Richard Dreyfus doing the narrating : )

    I really enjoyed this story. I've read other Stephen King short stories and I must confess: he has a way with words and storytelling. Sometimes human emotion is diluted by words and loses its effect. Stephen King however, delivers every time. The story was the inspiration for the 1987 film 'Stand By Me'. The story is a first-person narrative by the main character, Gordon LaChance. He is telling the story many years later as an adult.

He reflects about himself and his three best friends during the summer of 1960. The four 12-year-olds are going on a journey to see a dead body. During their journey they experience the full spectrum of human emotion and come out of the journey a little different, a little more mature. The readability and realism kept me engaged the entire time. I would highly recommend this alongside "Shawshank Redemption" because of the human element layered in the story. Stephen King is a great writer all around: horror and drama. Thanks!

So in my mind I just equate them with summers in my childhood. I haven't watched Stand By Me in probably over 15years, it was probably around the same time I read this book for the first time. I remember not really liking the book back then. I think it was the combination of it being a non-horror Stephen King book and/or because I loved the movie so much. This time around I loved this book the only thing stopping it from being a 5 star read is that its in my opinion too short. I want more. As an adult I read this book in a completely different way and I'm sure that I would view the movie differently now as well. The Body is about 4 friends who decide to go on a weekend "adventure" to find the rumored body of a kid who was hit by a train. It's Stephen King so know its gonna be a darker read but despite that morbid premise The Body is a story of friendships. The boys are around 12 years old and they've been inseparable for years but they can feel themselves growing apart. High School tends to do that. When I was a kid I hung out with about 6 girls and we just knew we would be friends forever but by sophomore year I was only still friends with 3 and as an adult I'm only friends with 1. Times change. In high school I found my tribe but I still have fond memories of my preteen "girl gang", even if I'm no longer friends with them. The Body is the perfect gateway drug to start reading Stephen King. Its not scary, its not gory(maybe a little bit gory), and it has a lot of heart.

    "Some people drown, that’s all. It’s not fair, but it happens..." My god! I expected to be impressed by this charming novella, but I never expected to fall in love with this tale as much as I did. A group of four tight-knit friends border lining the beginning of their teenage years agree to journey out of town to look at a dead body. Stephen King captures the coming of age journey perfectly. We witness this adventure transform each individual so poignantly. Gone is the innocence and nativity to "Some people drown, that’s all. It’s not fair, but it happens..." My god! I expected to be impressed by this charming novella, but I never expected to fall in love with this tale as much as I did. A group of four tight-knit friends border lining the beginning of their teenage years agree to journey out of town to look at a dead body. Stephen King captures the coming of age journey perfectly. We witness this adventure transform each individual so poignantly. Gone is the innocence and nativity to be replaced with something new. A fresh perspective on life. One that is dancing around dark thoughts of the macabre, a realism distinguishing optimism and undeniable truth. I particularly enjoy how the journey reveals every character's flaw with the perpetual realization that inevitably everything comes to an end. "Friends come and go like waiters in a restaurant, did you ever notice that?" This is without a doubt the best exploration of friendship that I have seen in any piece of literature work. While perhaps not the best embodiment of friendship, we do exploration every single dynamic of how friendships work, how they thrive, and how they can drift apart. The antics our four characters get up are without a doubt relatable to any adult reminiscing on their teenage years. With the shadow of adulthood looming over them, we're truly indulged as to what specific moment made these boys become men. There are just so many running themes beautifully represented and packed cozily within the 179 pages. I particularly loved King's superb focus on social identities, reality versus idealism, and the pressures of adolescence to name a few. There are so many iconic scenes that will forever stick in my mind. Perhaps I should even mention a few refreshing lessons to take away from this story as well. There's something almost enlightening with this read and I am left descending a deep rabbit hole of nostalgia reflecting that everything has worked out exactly the way things should be. Final verdict: 9.5 out of 10

    This was okay. I listened to it on audio, narrated by Frank Muller. I think this was my first time listening to him as a narrator, and I thought he was great. The story itself was nothing special. It was very classic Stephen King, a coming of age story for four boys in Castle Rock, Maine. I was reminded a lot of IT- not because anything in the book was all that scary, but just because the boys seemed like they were doing a lot of the same things.

I was reminded a lot of IT- not because anything in the book was all that scary, but just because the boys seemed like they were doing a lot of the same things. (Walking train tracks through the woods, battling bullies, swimming, etc.) One of them is even a writer- which I believe one of the kids in IT grows up to be? The whole thing was so similar it just struck me as odd. Sure, King reuses a lot of the same themes, (set in Maine, writers, coming of age, kids as heroes, bullies, etc.) but nothing I've ever read from him made me go- gee, haven't I heard this story before? It just seemed lazy to me. The highlight, for me, was the stories we're given from the writer, Gordie. He has one about a man named Chico, that's autobiographical for him in a way, and I really enjoyed it. In the end, I'm not really sure what the point of The Body was. Kids go on a walk to find a body. That's pretty much it. Maybe I just couldn't relate. I know this was originally part of a collection, so I wouldn't rule the entire collection out- I just wouldn't bother re-reading this one.

    I feel like I just watched an audio-only version of the film "Stand By Me". Which makes sense as this was the original story that inspired the movie. And its surprising how much the movie not only followed the original story, but captured much of its spirit. Certainly the King version is much more vulgar and up front, but the wonder of youth and the harsh reality of time is there, in the film. I've always wanted to read this.

I've always been a huge fan of the film and was always curious as to King's take on it. Much of King's material goes back to a group of kids, a pack, going through some kind of bizarre adventure. One only has to look at "It" and "Dreamcatcher" to see this. Both are very strong tales, some say his best (I've only read Dreamcatcher, FYI), and that is the same case here. The one thing I will say that seperates the tale from the film is the ending. It's much broader here, more real and more heart breaking. I wont spoil it beyond that point. But, even though I hate to see things turn out in such a fashion for those characters, it makes sense to me. I think it's logical given the theme of the story and I don't think it's harsh or cruel or out of context. If you enjoyed the movie or enjoy King's work this is another that I highly recommend.

    The only other thing that I've ever read by Stephen King roughly the first 200 pages of Under The Dome. I gave up on it after I realized how vulgar the writing was. That was a while ago, and I have read many books since then, and my tastes have developed more. I decide to try out reading The Body because it was classified as young adult, and it might be less...

I gave up on it after I realized how vulgar the writing was. That was a while ago, and I have read many books since then, and my tastes have developed more. I decide to try out reading The Body because it was classified as young adult, and it might be less... The book was perfectly fine, It was almost similar to the Outsiders. It was just shy of 200 pages, and if it was any longer, I would have never entertained the idea of reading it. It was still a little graphic to be classified as young adult, but I suppose that is the best you will get with a Stephen King book. 3.5/5 stars. I may read something else by Stephen King, but it will not be anywhere in the foreseeable future.

    A Disappointing Read. Synopsis: Four boys hear about the location of a dead body in a forest that 40 miles away. Wanting to do something 'big' they decide to hike their way over there to find the body and lead the police to it, partially in the hopes of a little bit of fame. The novella also deals with the low prospects the kids face from growing up in a small factory town. Thoughts: By far and away my biggest issue with this novella was that I didn't care for the characters. Part of this is that A Disappointing Read.

The novella also deals with the low prospects the kids face from growing up in a small factory town. Thoughts: By far and away my biggest issue with this novella was that I didn't care for the characters. Part of this is that the novella feels a lot like a precursor to IT, and Gordon in particular feels like he's just a slight variation of Big Bill. I did feel pity for Chris and Teddy, though I couldn't tell you a single thing about Vern. The fact that it seemed so much like IT also effected my enjoyment of it, there were a lot of similarities here. Another issue I had with this is that it's supposed to deal with the low prospects of the kids but other than the last couple of chapters that sum up what happened to them later in life, there's really only one section that really deals with that concept. I was expecting it to be a bigger theme throughout so I was a bit surprised/disappointed by this. One of the most bizarre features of this novella was that it contains two short stories written by an older version of the protagonist and both were fairly unpleasant and seemingly unnecessary. The first is one part erotica, one part family drama. This one at least seemed to mirror some of the lives of the boys so I could kind of understand its inclusion, but the erotica part of it was still pretty unpleasant. The second one is about a pie eating contest that devolves into literally everyone throwing up. It was unpleasant to read and was seemingly irrelevant to the overall plot, it kind of felt like a riff on Carrie. The journey itself was quite compelling, but it kind of just boiled down to three or four interesting events split up by weird dreams, the short stories, or conversations between the characters so it didn't really feel like a cohesive narrative to me.

Und damit meine ich weder, dass die "Ich-Perspektive" ungewöhnlich wäre noch, dass ich glaube Stephen King hätte etwas davon selbst erlebt. Wenn ich so darüber nachdenke wirkt es an einigen Stellen eher sogar wie eines seiner ... nennen wir es einmal "unrealistischeren" Werke. Schon klar; das muss ich erklären. In der "Arena" taucht eine magische Kuppel über einer Stadt auf und hält deren Bewohner gefangen. In "Es" terrorisiert ein clowneskes Monster die Bürger in seinem Einzugsgebiet. Und nein - das ist keine heimliche Donald Trump - Referenz. Aber auf ihre eigenwillige weise wirken diese Bücher so weit weg von unserer Realität, dass sie mit dieser nichts mehr zu tun haben. Wir beurteilen sie beim Lesen auch nicht so. Wir akzeptieren, wie diese unheimliche Welt von ihrem Schöpfer geschaffen wurde, lernen - je mehr wir von Castle Rock und seiner Umgebung hören - ihre bösartigen Mechanismen kennen und verstehen. Aber "Die Leiche"? Dieses Buch schrammt so hart an unserer Realität vorbei, dass wir den Luftzug spüren können. Und während wir uns noch fragen, ob es eigentlich ein kalter oder ein warmer Zug war, ist sie auch schon vorbei. So langsam sie beginnt, so schnell endet sie. Eine Zumutung, das Ganze. Schließlich begleiten wir die Charaktere nur für einen kurzen Zeitraum, bevor wir das Buch mit einem warmen Gefühl im Magen wieder verlassen. Und wie beim Luftzug fragen wir uns am Ende: Ist es ein wohliges Gefühl, weil die Geschichte selbst an der einen oder anderen Stelle Erinnerungen an spannende Abenteuer im Sommer in uns hervorkramt? Oder war es dann doch eher ein Tritt, erzeugt durch die Tatsache, dass eine Leiche gar nicht das Erschreckendste in Castle Rock ist?

A bildungsroman, with a group of 4 young adolescents, coming from a small town, and each with a pitiable back story, King explores fear and strength, friendship and masculinity, with horror as lavishly as possible in this novella. Times I feel these are better read than watched as movies, since they leave the reader more thoughtful.

Keturi 13 metų paaugliai išsiruošia ieškoti miškuose žuvusio vaiko kūno apie kurį netyčia nugirdo. Čia nėra jokių siaubo elementų, nors vietomis įtampos netrūksta. Tai labiau nuotykių knyga, bet tokia labai kingiška. Tikriausiai labiausiai apysaka užkabino dėl to, kad kažkada, kai buvo 15 metų su draugu buvome išėję į panašų "pochodą" (aišku jokio kūno mes neieškojom, bet nuotykių irgi buvo :) ). Kingo knygos dažnai siejasi tarpusavyje - šioje minimas Šoušenko kalėjimas ir šuo Kudžas. Yra visai nebloga ir gan tiksli knygos ekranizacija pavadinimu "Stand by me" - peržiūrėjau kol skaičiau "Gabų mokinį". "Gabaus mokinio" ekranizaciją jau buvau kažkada seniai matęs, bet detalės buvo užsimiršusios, tai netrukdė skaityti. Keturiolikmetis moksleivis, vardu Todas, liguistai besidomintis konclageriais gatvėje atpažįsta besislapstantį nacį. Vietoj to, kad įduotų jį policijai, nusprendžia jį šantažuoti iš pirmų lūpų išgirsti kaip viskas vyko koncentracijos stovyklose. Čia įdomiausia transformacija - tiek seno nacio, kuriame po truputį pabunda mieganti pabaisa, tiek Todo. Neveltui apysakos paantraštė - "Summer of Corruption". Toks įdomus dalykas - kelis kartus atkreipiama dėmesį, kad Diusanderis (senas nacis), niekad nevadina berniuko vardu ir autorios šios vietos taip ir nepaaiškina. Gal dėl to, kad Tod vokiškai reiškia "mirtis"? :). Kita įdomybė - viename iš savo pasakojimų Diusanderis mini bankininką, Endį Diufreiną, kuris kažkada padėjo jam nusipirkti akcijų ir kuris sėdo į Šoušenko kalėjimą dėl žmonos nužudymo. Kas nematėt filmo ar neskaitėt knygos - Endis Diufreinas pagrindinis "Pabėgimo iš Šoušenko" veikėjas. Perskaitęs knygą dar kartą peržiūrėjau ekranizaciją, bet didelio įspudžio nepadarė - tai tokia labai sušvelninta knygos versija. "Kūnas" - 5/5 "Gabus mokinys" - 4.5/5

All the characters have their own struggles, but they help each other that the club seems more like a family. I really enjoyed the fact that we get the description of their lives, so you just don’t get a bunch of students solving a mystery but a group of friends who try their best to be something. - The dog scene. There is a particular scene where I totally lost my mind. It is related with a dog and I think this one stands the most from the book. - The parents. By no means I am saying the parents are good parents but, as King usually do, you get to hate some of them because is just unbelievable what they do to the family. - The mystery. A dead body that hasn’t been found yet and even though that’s what creates this story, you will get to find more secret things. - The ending. I was expecting to get my doubts clear, but I got more that I was not expecting. Not good, not bad: - I did not find something bad about the book, but I am just curious on how a bunch of kids with no means are better than the police sometimes. - I don’t think this is a pure horror story because it talks more about life and friendship. - Do not compare this friendship with “It” because we are reading something different.

But for this review, I wanted to take a closer look at the structure of the story and try to discover why I love it. Structurally, this novella is flawed. There are some things about it that I do not like at all and detract from the overall plot and narrative. But even with its flaws, it is an amazing story with literary flourishes and fully-formed characters. It has a touch of nostalgia and reveals an endearing remembrance of a friendship whose power is not diminished over time. It’s an affecting depiction of the power of friendship. “The most important things are the hardest things to say…” is the mantra of this story. Stephen King repeats this mantra a few times, even parses it at one point, then admits to the irony of an author declaring that words diminish the important things in our lives. Here’s the brief book description: It’s 1960 in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine. Ray Brower, a boy from a nearby town, has disappeared, and twelve-year-old Gordie Lachance and his three friends set out on a quest to find his body along the railroad tracks. During the course of their journey, Gordie, Chris Chambers, Teddy Duchamp, and Vern Tessio come to terms with death and the harsh truths of growing up in a small factory town that doesn’t offer much in the way of a future. This novella is the basis for the classic movie Stand by Me. King shows great descriptive flair and the dialogue is snappy and true to life. Gordie (the narrator and one of the boys as an adult) is likeable and an effective storyteller who reveals the goodness beneath the hard exterior that is beginning to form during this formidable time in their lives. The story is both an adventure and a coming-of-age tale with a bit of mystery. We, the readers, never find out how or why exactly Ray Brower is killed, neither at the time or in hindsight. But the initial spookiness of his death and the morbid desire of the boys to see his body eventually turns into a meditation on life, what Ray Brower will be missing, and what the four friends unintentionally have to look forward to in their own lives. The connection between the four friends is palpable, particularly between Gordie and Chris. They eventually find the wherewithal to do better in school so they can escape the oppressive blue-collar life of the town of Castle Rock. And the connection they have begins with this adventure to find Ray Brower. Structurally, I feel the novella fails in a couple of areas. First, two short stories are included—in full—within the novella that are examples of what Gordie publishes as an adult when he becomes a professional writer. Unfortunately, they do not add anything to the story of the four, young friends; and the "pie eating contest" could have more effectively been told by young Gordie as a campfire tale within the main narrative. Second, the ending is a letdown. It feels—to me—like King didn’t know what to do with a story like this, as it was way outside of his wheelhouse at the time of its original publication. The morbid Ch 33 and deflated Ch 34 (the last two chapters) seem as if King decided to “right the ship” and steer the plot to an ending that would ultimately satisfy his horror-loving readership, rather than find meaning in the things he was exploring in this story: friendship, camaraderie, and many of the important things in one’s life. “The most important things are the hardest things to say…” And as we are reminded of this time and time again in the story, King chose not to say them, or even to try to attempt to say what he really wanted to say. A period of great friendship in a person’s life can have a lasting effect, one that resonates long after the friendship is over, as is evident in a story like this. In the end, King was and still is known as a horror writer, and there was no way he was going to end this story on a positive note. But again, even with these flaws, I love this story and novella. The friendship between the boys is the heart of the story and I love their adventure and the way they lookout (mostly) for each other. I love that an adventure like this can be known only to its principal actors, as no one in Castle Rock was aware of what they did during their time looking for Ray Brower, and it’s a secret we share with the boys. And I love being reminded that any preconceptions you can have about a writer can be shattered with a curveball like this. King summarizes the story best at the end of Ch 11. “I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, did you?” Now that is the true conclusion of this wonderful novella.

Der Weg dorthin ist beschwerlich und die Jungs müssen öfter als ihnen lieb ist mit der Angst kämpfen... Stephen King's Novelle "Die Leiche" er "Ich finde, das ist am schlimmsten: Wenn man ein Geheimnis für sich behalten muss, nicht, weil man es nicht erzählen könnte, sondern weil niemand es verstehen würde." - Stephen King, "Die Leiche" Als Gordon und seine drei besten Freunde davon hören, dass eine Leiche auf den Bahngleisen in den Wäldern Maines liegen soll, machen sie sich auf, diese zu finden. Der Weg dorthin ist beschwerlich und die Jungs müssen öfter als ihnen lieb ist mit der Angst kämpfen... Stephen King's Novelle "Die Leiche" erschien bereits in dem Erzählband "Frühling, Sommer, Herbst und Tod". Der Heyne-Verlag hat diese Novelle nun isoliert veröffentlicht. King merkt an, dass die Geschichte autobiografisch ist und das war es auch, was mir besonderd an "Die Leiche" gefallen hat. Zwischen mir und den Büchern von Stephen King herrscht so etwas wie eine Hassliebe. Ich habe bisher "Es" und "Friedhof der Kuscheltiere" von ihm gelesen und dort ging es mir genauso wie auch bei der Lektüre von "Die Leiche": einerseits mag ich seinen Schreibstil, andererseits fällt es mir schwer, eine Geschichte, in der in jedem zweiten Satz das Wort "Hure" fällt tatsächlich gut zu finden. So zieht es sich durch das gesamte Buch. King wirft mit so vielen Schimpfworten um sich, dass es mir einfach manchmal unmöglich war, in die Geschichte einzutauchen. Die Story selbst fand ich aber gut. Der Autor versteht es einfach sehr gut, Spannung aufzubauen und diese auch permanent aufrecht zu erhalten. Auch Kings Ausführungen zur Liebe und Sterblichkeit sowie die kurzen Ausflüge zu seinen Anfängen als Schriftsteller waren wirklich gelungen. Ich mag es auch, dass King in seinen Romanen oft Außenseitern eine Stimme gibt. Von der sprachlichen Zwiegespaltenheit abgesehen kann ich das Buch empfehlen. Es ist kurzweilig, lässt sich gut an einem verregneten Abend mit einer Kanne Tee lesen und unterhält. Ich vergebe 3,5 / 5 ⭐.

Was sich erst mal nach einer einfachen Story anhört ist doch viel viel mehr, denn hier wird nicht nur eine Leiche gesucht, sondern auch insbesondere die vier Freunde sehr detailreich gezeichnet und das ganze Drumherum ihrer Suche gestaltet sich doch nicht so easy wie vielleicht zu beginn des Buches gedacht. Für mich persönlich schafft Stephen King hier einige sehr eindringliche Bilder, die mich wirklich begeistern konnten! Wie schon gesagt, für mich kam hier schnell dieser Sog auf, der mich immer tiefer mit ins Buch, mit in die Geschichte genommen hat und ich war letztlich auch zusätzlich sehr angetan von diesem Buch, da es eine autobiografische Story von Stephen King ist, was gerade zum Ende hin viel über ihn selbst zeigt. Das gab dem ganzen nochmal eine ganz besondere Note. Fazit: Wer gerne Stephen King's Bücher liest, der sollte sich diese Kurzgeschichte nicht entgehen lassen!

    I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, did you? Stephen King never disappoints. Even though this is a short story, I felt like I knew the characters just as well as I would have in one of King's novels, and better than some characters in other authors' novels. At the heart of this novella lies a story of youth. A story that can only occur when one is a child. A story that can never be relived. There is an adventurous sense of wonder within the pages of this I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, did you? Stephen King never disappoints.

There is an adventurous sense of wonder within the pages of this book, and it is one that no adult can ever achieve naturally. Only four kids would get bored one day and ask, "You guys wanna see a dead body?" This is a tale of friendship, innocence, heartbreak, and reality. It is not one to be missed.

    Being such a huge fan of the movie adaptation (I literally used to restart the movie over and over again as soon as it ended), I just had to see what the story would be like. The adaptation stays very true to the original story, and I especially appreciated that when it came to the dialogue. Getting to read the words and hearing the kids in the movie say them in my head was awesome. The story was full of so much detail for a short story, I felt like a read a full length, 300 paged book.
