A “hypnotic” The New York Times Book Review collection of four novellas from Stephen King bound together by the changing of seasons each taking on the theme of a journey with strikingly different tones and characters“The wondrous readability of his work as well as the instant sense of communication with his characters are what make Stephen King the consummate storyteller that he is Fear can hold you prisoner Hope can set you freeConsidered by many to be King s best collection of storiesnovellas Different Seasons contains two stories that were ultimately developed into two of the greatest movies of all time The Body which became Stand by Me of course and Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption the movie is obvious noSometimes I really hate reading an awesome Stephen King book no I m not crazy I just get stressed about where I m going to rank it in my top books list and what other books are gonna get pushed down the list Different Seasons is simply a masterpiece Having read most of King s epic stories I thought I d seen King at this best but no this is his best The writing the characters the storylines it feels like everything is turned up a notch here This is a prime example of how King is so much than just horrorLet s start off with Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption Now I ve already seen the movie along with the majority of the population but somehow that didn t matter I still raced through each page eager to see what comes next even though I already knew the outcome It s a story ultimately about hope resilience and survival Set against the backdrop of a bleak prison these themes shine through even prominently A touching emotional story and now one of my favouritesNext up was Apt Pupil Now I really liked this one A former Nazi finds a willing student in young Todd Bowden and what follows is pure horror The most unsettling parts of this novella were those wherein Dussander relays stories from the concentration camps in WWII Having visited Auschwitz only last year the atrocities that happened there just feel real This novella is a terrifying look at evil and the darkness that resides in these evil humans Todd has to be one of the most hateful characters I ve ever encountered in literature a sexual sadist a psychopath just downright disgusting Nevermind Dussander himself Yet this story is absorbing once it hooks you in you can t get back outThe horrific nature of Apt Pupil is swiftly followed by the nostalgic novella The Body Reading this novella is similar to being transported back in time to when you were a child when all you wanted to do was hang out with your friends You d leave the house early morning and not come back again until it got dark It s a beautiful story and yet also uite tragic Each of the boys come from homes or backgrounds that aren t entirely supportive and they are able to find true friendship and support within each other In particular the friendship between Gordie and Chris is touching Chris is such a great character wise beyond his years and he really cares for Gordie Overall this is a great look into those years where you grow up and relinuish your innocence symbolised by the dead body out in the woods Simply amazingLastly The Breathing Method I actually read this one first as Abbie recommended to me It is considered to be the stinker of the collection and therefore I decided to read it first so as not to end the collection on a bum note But to be honest I uite liked it I liked the gentleman s club and their penchant for telling stories it kinda sounded like a cool set up that I d love to be a part of Miss Stansfield herself was a pretty badass woman determined and strong I don t really understand why people would forget about this one or just cast it off as the other story in this collection Granted it s not as brilliant as the others but it still left a lasting impression with meOverall this book was just unbelievable I lost count of the number of times where I just felt completely blown away by King s writing This is a great GREAT collection and now one of my favourite King books liar-s-poker-rising-through-the-wreckage-on-wall-street novellas from Stephen King bound

Summary Different Seasons

Different Seasons

hailed the Houston Chronicle about Different Seasons This gripping collection begins with “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption” in which an unjustly imprisoned convict seeks a strange and startling revenge the basis for the Best Picture Academy Award nominee The Shawshank Redemption Next is “Apt Pupil” the inspiration for the film of the same name about top high school s It s definitive Stephen King is not just a writer of horror and fantasy In truth up to a few years ago I was convinced he was a horrormeister pure and simple At this point a friend suggested I try out his time travel epic 112263 I was cured I loved it and subseuent forays into King s extensive catalogue have shown me the range of the man s work I ll comment individually on the tales but the common element the outstanding take away for me is simply the realisation that here s the evidence to assert that SK is one of the outstanding story tellers of his generation Any doubters to the veracity of this statement should pointed in the direction of this exceptional collection of novellas In truth there is one story here I d class as horror as it happens my least favourite of the set The other three stories have been all made into films the only one of which I ve seen is Stand By Me based on The Body which happens to be one of my all time favourite films This is old fashioned storytelling at its best miss it if you dareRita Hayworth and Shawshank RedemptionMost people will be aware of the film version which everyone on the planet seems to have seen except me I m told the film is a classic and I know some people who ve seen the film and read the story they all seem to prefer the celluloid version If you ve caught up with neither than I d urge you to seek out one or the other Set in a fictional state penitentiary it tells of the local entrepreneur Red and his friend and customer Andy Defresne who is imprisoned for the murders of his wife and her lover Andy s struggles to established his innocence while he fights for survival and strives to earn the respect of the lifers in this toughest of environments is the core of the story Surprisingly King is able to invests the whole thing with a degree of warmth though perhaps no surprise to anyone who has read The Green Mile and it had me desperately hoping he d thought up a happy ending to this sometimes brutal taleApt PupilSixteen year old student Todd Bowden has discovered that a Nazi war criminal Kurt Dussander has been uietly living in Todd s home town This disturbing tale documents how Todd first challenges Dussander and then how they begin a complicated but mutually sustainable relationship It s the longest story in the collection and I sometimes felt I was reading this partly hidden behind a set of fingers It s a tense psychological thriller that kept throwing up surprises Spooky as hellThe BodyDefinitely my favourite yet I think I still prefer the film JustFour young boys from Maine set out to find the body of a boy who has been missing for a few days They ve discovered that the boy was hit and killed by a train and they aim to be the ones to claim the find and maybe become heroes as a result It s all a wonderful adventure as various mishaps befall them on the way I discovered that the narrative of the film closely tracks that of the book and I defy anyone not to laugh and cry in eual measure as this brilliantly told tale unfolds Superb The Breathing MethodA story within a story An ageing lawyer is invited a a mysterious club where stories are told by its members One such story takes up a good portion of the overall piece and it concerns a unmarried woman in the 1930 s who finds herself pregnant and desperate to give birth to the child despite her lack of money and the obvious social disapproval The whole atmosphere of this one was scary It s the shortest of the four novellas but arguably packs the biggest punch andy-catlett-early-travels-a-novel nominee The
