This is, of course, the book that made fans for Stephen King that don't even know they're fans. My wife, for example, counts the Stand By Me and Shawshank Redemption movies as among the very best, but she doesn't like Stephen King.

Shawshank that starts this collection off is very much standard King fare. A quiet person who's driven beyond normal human measuring. Andy Dufresne is cut from the same cloth as Roland, Stu Redmond, the Loser's Club, Paul Sheldon, and many other King characters. There's nothing remarkable here, and yet, the whole thing's remarkable in the way that he slowly, easily, and with great care and patience, lays the entire story out for us.

The comes Apt Pupil, a story I didn't like originally, and didn't like this time around. Hey, it happens. Where the first story seemed to move along, not quickly, not slowly, but just right, this one seemed to drag and drag. It could be because I found no redeeming features in either of the two main characters, I don't know. To me, there was a genius little short story shoehorned into this novella when the Jewish concentration camp survivor comes to learn that he's sharing a hospital room with his Nazi torturer. That, my friends, would have made for a suspenseful little slice of hell. But it was not to be. Ah well. This story is the reason this book is rated a 4 instead of a 5 for me.

The Body, quite simply, is some of the finest writing King has ever produced. His observances of childhood, of life, of his own reputation as a writer...all of it. This story simply sings.

And finally, we have the oddity known as The Breathing Method, a strange little story that shouldn't work, and likely wouldn't have had it not been sandwiched within the much more intriguing framework of the club, also one of King's better creations.

Overall, the thing that struck me the most about this collection, that didn't really hit me the first time around, is that each story is about characters who go through a story, but that also have a story of their own. Sometimes, there's even a story within a story within a story. In each of the four novellas collected here.

Together, though I'm not fond of one of them, this should stand as one of King's top releases, and one that can be pointed to when discussing his genius. ( )

Includes 4 novellas, only one of which I read "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption". liked the novel's take on the story...it's very similar to the book except that the book is set in Maine, and the narrator isn't black. King is a lot more focused on the theme of hope, but also the idea that you find success when you take things slowly, play all of your cards, and take a chance. The movie makes it seem like Andy knows his whole plan the entire, but in the book, it's made clear that he probably didn't...he just took his opportunities as they came, and in addition to finally escaping, makes things better for every man in that prison. A really good way to look at life. Also includes "Apt Pupil" and "The Body", which was made into "Stand by Me".

King is a good storyteller; I can find no fault with his writing, but I guess I just feel like there's no place to go with it. I suppose that's why he's so popular...I'm not sure if that makes him great or not! Maybe he's so great he makes it look that easy; I don't know. I guess time will tell. ( )

Rita Hayworth & the Shawshank Redemption is a great story, but the movie is nearly perfect; The Body/Stand By Me is a great story and a great movie; The Apt Pupil is sort of meh; The Breathing Method is a weird little story that would make a great creepy little movie! ( )

I spaced my reading of this one out so I could read each story in the appropriate thematic season. It was wonderful. Each story fully embodied that time of the year. Ironically I finished the book nine months to the day that I started. Echoes of "The Breathing Method"...

Rita Hayworth & Shawshank Redemption: 5/5
Apt Pupil: 4/5
The Body: 5/5 (One of the greatest works of short fiction of all time)
The Breathing Method: 4/5 ( )

There are 4 stories within these covers. All are within 100 - 200 pages, which gives you enough to sink your teeth into and enjoy the taste. None of these stories are horror driven, they are more suspenseful.

Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption - Condemned for the murder of his wife and her lover, Andy Defresne is serving a life sentence in one of the country's hardest prisons. Day to day life now includes rape, helping guards and the warden cheat the system, and hope for freedom.
After 27 years, Andy gets his freedom. The how is as exciting and unexpected as the rest of the story.
Shawshank Redemption was made into a movie.

The Apt Pupil - When a 13 year old boy discovers a Nazi war criminal living in his neighborhood, he blackmails him into telling about the war, the camps, and all the horrible things he has done.
Partway through you begin to wonder who is worse, the Nazi or the young boy. Both begin to have nightmares over the stories.
The Apt Pupil was made into a movie.

The Body - 4 boys go on a trek to see and claim fame over a dead body. The journey is filled with more adventure than any of them expected.
The Body was made into a movie called Stand By Me.

The Breathing Method - An unwed mother is determined to have her baby, despite public opinion and other issues. There is a supernatural element to this one. ( )

Hope Springs Eternal ∙Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption∙ ... There's a guy like me in every state and federal prison in America, I guess-I'm the guy who can get it for you.
Summer Of Corruption ∙Apt Pupil∙ ... He looked like the total all-American kid as he pedaled his twenty-six inch Schwinn with the apehanger handlebars up the residential suburban street, and that's just what he was: Todd Bowden, thirteen years old, five-feet-eight and a healthy one hundred and forty pounds, hair the color of ripe corn, blue eyes, white even teeth, lightly tanned skin marred by not even the first shadow of adolescent acne.
Fall From Innocence ∙The Body∙ ... The most important things are the hardest things to say.
A Winter's Tale ∙The Breathing Method∙ ... I dressed a bit more speedily than normal on the snowy,windy, bitter night-I admit.

Since I am innocent of this crime, sir, and since I am telling the truth about throwing my gun into the river the day before the crime took place, then it seems to me decidedly inconvenient that the gun was never found. -Andy Dufresne, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption
