Very good read. For me, each story was better than the one before it. The Body and The Breathing Method were certainly my favorites.

Comprised of 4 novellas written by Stephen King, stories of the non-creepy variety. The movies "Stand by Me" and "Shawshank Redemption" are based on 2 of the novellas. I give them 3 out of 5 stars.

The "Shawshank Redemption" movie was fairly true to the book. However, I felt the book was a little better. Stephen King does a great job of giving you the substance of the characters, both in the realm of the facade a prisoner must maintain to survive, and of the inner anguish a prisoner struggles against to stay whole. You get to know Andy and Red, inside and out, and this is what makes the book so very compelling.
