Stephen King’s short story “The Body”—which became the film Stand By Me—from the collection Different Seasons is now an Encore stand-alone CD.

In “The Body,” four rambunctious young boys plunge through the façade of a small town and come face-to-face with life, death, and intimations of their own mortality.

    " More great shorts from this prolific author. The authors note at the end of the book gives some great insight as to where the stories came from. "

    " I have been a King fan since I was in middle school (20-ish years ago), and he never ceases to disappoint me. I read this one in a day, and enjoyed the stories very much. Equally disturbing and compelling, as always! He is still the horror master :) "

    " One of my fav books by Stephen King so far. The stories really make you think about the evil that humans are capable of when it comes to benefitting them. "

    " I'm not a huge Stephen King fan, and this did little to change my mind. This collection of somewhat short stories was ... unpleasant ... yes, that's the word. Can't really recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rex | 5/21/2011

    " Four novellas from King. Only one has any sort of supernatural bent to it, and all are excellent in the sense they'll stretch you with some uncomfortable (but entertaining) subject matter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 5/18/2011

    " Probably the best stories King has ever written. A very dark look into the horrors that ordinary people are capable of when faced with extraordinary situations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Selena | 5/16/2011

    " I liked this is a lot. Full Dark, No Stars is four tales, all a bit gruesome in their own way. I didn't much care for the first story, "1922," but I liked the others. King is a masterful storyteller and remains my favorite author with each book of his I read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 5/16/2011

    " Typical Stephen King. If you like his other books, you'll like this collection of four short stories. "

    " Finished the first story- it was okay. Started the second story and it felt like "Misery" a bit too much so I put it down. I will finish. I love Stephen King. "
