    This is one of my favorite King books, and one of the first of his I ever read. It's probably time I re-read it, but I always say there are so many unread books that re-reading ones already read seems a little wasteful. That said, I remember this collection quite clearly. I wasn't as impressed with The Dun Dog back then, so probably I really should re-read the book.

    I've only read Secret Window, Secret Garden but it's probably my favorite King novelette. I've been in a reading slump, so maybe I'll pick this up and start reading the others

    I enjoyed Four Past Midnight. Secret Window, Secret Garden was my favorite. I re-read it several months ago, prior to Netflixing the Johnny Depp movie version.



    The book was better.

    Definitely! I hated the ending they tacked onto the movie.

    I am currently reading four past midnight, I am halfway through Secret Window Secret Garden. Love it so far. I loved the langoliers just because how mysterious everything was. I personally think that King is a master in that field, I was constantly creating new theories as to what might be going on. I hope to see more of that in this collection!
