Finished this audiobook while painting my little fox. 🦊☕ I kinda like those King books that have nothing to do with the supernatural.

While I liked each individual novella in this collection, when considered together, there's no escaping the commonality between them. This is a collection of four very cynical, dark, and - at times - difficult to read stories. There isn't much hope to be found in its pages, but it remains entertaining despite its grimness. 4/5

A Good Marriage: What if your partner wasn't the person you thought they were? How would you react? What choices would you make? While this idea is far from fresh, King's take on it feels much more so, and is a tense read from start to finish. 5/5

Advice needed: Is leaving honest reviews (2-5 stars) of novels written by other writers who are non competitors “unsupportive?”
I consider myself a reader first. Reviewing for other readers. Some think it‘s not appropriate to leave reviews of fewer than 5 stars for ANY book if one is a professional writer. Could use input on this! Thoughts, avid readers?

NatalieR The key word is honest. I understand it can be uncomfortable to leave a less than favorable review; however, every reader is entitled to their opinion about a book. Readers should not feel guilty for their opinions. 20h
Bookwomble I agree with @NatalieR 18h
marleed I notice on GR that Taylor Jenkins Reid marks books as read with written thoughts but doesn‘t leave any stars ⭐️. I get that. She acknowledges she read a book but doesn‘t mess with the repercussions that could come with assigning stars as a fellow author. 9h

Fair Extension: A rather cynical and bleak take on the classic "deal with the Devil" story that unfortunately doesn't get much time to breathe or go anywhere of particular note. 3/5

Big Driver: This is a brutal story, with some of the most visceral and jarring depictions of assault I've read. The upshot is the unrelenting catharsis of the back half as one of the most relatable protagonists I've seen King conjure gets down to the business of revenge.

1922: Yet another corn-adjacent murder romp from King! Joking aside, this is a pretty solid novella, and the narrator's blunt delivery makes for some fascinating reading right out the gate as he recounts his terrible deeds. 5/5

Under the Dome | King, Stephen

This book has always felt to me like King took the wanton destruction of Castle Rock and its inhabitants seen in Needful Things and cranked it to 11. While entertaining, this remains a tough read. People you love will die in cruel and senseless fashion, and they will do so throughout. The main and supporting cast are well-written and (mostly) likeable, but that ultimately makes this a very tense read as you dread their possible end. 5/5
