Stephen King ✓ Different Seasons book

Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption the most satisfying tale of unjust imprisonment and offbeat escape since The Count of Monte CristoApt Pupil a golden California schoolboy and Fear can hold you prisoner Hope can set you freeConsidered by many to be King's best collection of storiesnovellas Different Seasons contains two stories that were ultimately developed into two of the greatest movies of all time The Body which became Stand by Me of course and Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption the movie is obvious no?Sometimes I really hate reading an awesome Stephen King book no I'm not crazy I just get stressed about where I'm going to rank it in my top books list and what other books are gonna get pushed down the list Different Seasons is simply a masterpiece Having read most of King's epic stories I thought I'd seen King at this best but no this is his best The writing the characters the storylines it feels like everything is turned up a notch here This is a prime example of how King is so much than just horrorLet's start off with Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption Now I've already seen the movie along with the majority of the population but somehow that didn't matter I still raced through each page eager to see what comes next even though I already knew the outcome It's a story ultimately about hope resilience and survival Set against the backdrop of a bleak prison these themes shine through even prominently A touching emotional story and now one of my favouritesNext up was Apt Pupil Now I really liked this one A former Nazi finds a willing student in young Todd Bowden and what follows is pure horror The most unsettling parts of this novella were those wherein Dussander relays stories from the concentration camps in WWII Having visited Auschwitz only last year the atrocities that happened there just feel real This novella is a terrifying look at evil and the darkness that resides in these evil humans Todd has to be one of the most hateful characters I've ever encountered in literature a sexual sadist a psychopath just downright disgusting Nevermind Dussander himself Yet this story is absorbing once it hooks you in you can't get back outThe horrific nature of Apt Pupil is swiftly followed by the nostalgic novella The Body Reading this novella is similar to being transported back in time to when you were a child when all you wanted to do was hang out with your friends You'd leave the house early morning and not come back again until it got dark It's a beautiful story and yet also uite tragic Each of the boys come from homes or backgrounds that aren't entirely supportive and they are able to find true friendship and support within each other In particular the friendship between Gordie and Chris is touching Chris is such a great character wise beyond his years and he really cares for Gordie Overall this is a great look into those years where you grow up and relinuish your innocence symbolised by the dead body out in the woods Simply amazingLastly The Breathing Method I actually read this one first as Abbie recommended to me It is considered to be the stinker of the collection and therefore I decided to read it first so as not to end the collection on a bum note But to be honest I uite liked it I liked the gentleman's club and their penchant for telling stories it kinda sounded like a cool set up that I'd love to be a part of Miss Stansfield herself was a pretty badass woman determined and strong I don't really understand why people would forget about this one or just cast it off as the other story in this collection Granted it's not as brilliant as the others but it still left a lasting impression with meOverall this book was just unbelievable I lost count of the number of times where I just felt completely blown away by King's writing This is a great GREAT collection and now one of my favourite King books
