I read this novella when I was probably twelve or thirteen while I was visiting my sister in California. I remember staying up late one night after everyone else went to bed to read it. I was in a strange house, reading an eerie book and I remember feeling scared every time I heard a strange sound.
I’m not sure why I decided to read this again, other than the fact that it is in a book with other stories I haven’t read yet and it happened to be the first one. I’m excited to see how I receive the book now that I’m older and have more experience with scary shit. Although, I’m not sure this one is so much scary as it is just weird.
I watched the mini-series on TV when it came out. I think it was pretty good, but I honestly can’t remember.
The entire book is called Four Past Midnight written by Stephen King, composed of four short stories/novellas. I’m going to try and read a story each week so I can have material for the next three weeks. We’ll see if that actually happens, though.
My teaser comes from The Langoliers on page 13. I hope you enjoy!
” An animal, one with extremely sharp teeth and claws, awakened and started to snarl inside of her head. She knew the name of that animal; it was panic, and if she didn’t control it fast, she might do something which would embarrass both her and Aunt Vicky.”
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Jenn at Books and a Beat.
