Great book! I couldn't put it down! This is more of a short story but still great! A definite for any Stephen King fan! :)
12 great stories, one for each month of the year, all in the same town. Delightful book.
Great graphic illustrations along with a spooky werewolf story. This book was the basis for King's movie Silver Bullet - and is about a brother & sister believing a werewolf is living in their hometown and with the help of an uncle, try to find out it's true identity and destroy it before it destroys them.
This is a cool oversized paperback with pictures. I had never seen one like it by him until I got this. It is really cool!! Must have for the Stephen King collector.
The very first book I read by Stephen was The Green Mile then It and then The Cycle of the Werewolf. I absolutely love his writing. He is great. There are some very macabre(revolting, disgusting) things meaning pictures in this book but...ITS STEPHEN KING! I like this book a lot. It is about how every month people are dying and no one knows why. This boy, Marty, is confined to a wheelchair and one night he is outside playing with fireworks. The werewolf comes out of no where but don't worry Marty lives. He wounds the werewolf and becomes intrigued with the werewolf. It goes on to talk about who the werewolf is and what Marty does about it. This book is a really good thriller, but all of Stephen King's books are.
I read this book during a 24 hour readathon and it was the perfect quick read! I love Stephen King's writing, and the drawings are wonderful as well. The werewolf in this book is no gentle Remus Lupin or kind hearted Sam from Shiver, this werewolf is straight out of a horror novel. Loved the characters and townspeople.
This is a short Novella with gorgeous illustrations. The only fault I have with this story is that it is too brisk, there is no real character development most of the characters are introduced at the beginning of a chapter and die by the end of the chapter a quick four pages later. I love King and enjoy his short stories above his novels but this lacks his usual punch because there is no connection to any character. I had been spoiled on the mystery of the werewolf because I have seen the film adaptation Silver Bullet several times and had looked forward to reading how it played out on page but the back and forth between Marty and the werewolf was simply not on the page. To be honest while I enjoyed the book I surprisingly prefer the movie.
The first scream came from the snowbound railwayman who felt the fangs ripping at his throat. The next month there was a scream of ecstatic agony from the woman attacked in her snug bedroom.
Now scenes of unbelieving horror come each time the full moon shines on the isolated Maine town of Tarker Mills. No one knows who will be attacked next. But one thing is sure.
When the moon grows fat, a paralyzing fear sweeps through Tarker Mills. For snarls that sound like human words can be heard whining through the wind. And all around are the footprints of a monster whose hunger cannot be sated... Cycle of the Werewolf
A quick, entertaining and exciting read. I enjoyed it a lot.
IT'S A STEPHEN KING BOOK AND A GOOD READ. IF YOU LIKE WEREWOLVES THIS IS FOR YOU.
Quick read with lots of pictures.
I read this when i was a kid and then again recently one night when i couldnt sleep i read it again. Scary and gory! Very good story
Not the normal King fare. It was interesting, well written and engaging, just nothing to write home about. The best part, by far, were the lovely illustrations.
Too short, too obvious. Written almost like a children's book.
