While I do love all 4 of these works, currently, I have just re-read THE LONG WALK, a bok I re-read every single year- yes, it is THAT good. I never tire of it. I always think new thoughts when I get to that ending, even if I do think the ending happens rather abruptly and is left open to interpr...

It's been a good 10-12 years since I've read this one, and it was long overdue for a re-read. Especially considering the fact that the only story I could really even remember in even the vaguest way was "The Long Walk". So I picked it up to give it another whirl. Not disappointed at all, but of c...

Rage: One of King’s earliest works, Rage wasn’t published until he had established himself and when it was, it was published under the author name Richard Bachman. This novel is definitely raw in many aspects, but I think that is what helps to give it its charm. The story centers on a student who...

These four novellas are almost as good as their cousins from Different Seasons . It's a shame that the Columbine Shootings have directly proceeded to the best of the four stories—Rage, with its everyone-can-find-some-angle-to-relate-to protagonist Charlie Decker, he who thrashed in his sleep whi...

Rage was so predictive! I'm glad it's no longer in print, but equally glad I read it first.

Every time I re-read this, with my old, ragged copy that's falling apart at the seams with masking tape and hope keeping it from completely collapsing into a pile of loose pages, I fall a little bit more in love with it. I'm going to take it a novel at a time, because I love each and every one of...

What a mixed bag. I loved The Long Walk with its imaginative plot and great character study. Who would have thought that a book about walking can be so intense and gruesome? Hunger Games has nothing on this bad boy. Roadwork, on the other hand, kind of bored me. I could see what it was trying to...

Road Work is the only weak link in this book, although legend has it that Rage is out of print finally (probably to King's great relief). Rage - 20 years before high school massacres started in America, King wrote this story of a misunderstood and clearly mentally ill kid going apeshit and holdin...

Three-stars is what the whole volume averages out to. I'll rate the four novels individually: Rage: 1 star. It's puerile and terrible. Textbook teen angst and resultant school shooting. A yawner considering the quality of the next one... The Long Walk: 4-5 stars? Hard to say. It is inventive, nerve...

This is a collection of four novels. As I finish them, I will write mini-reviews for them. Rage: While unrealistic in many senses, this has been among the most interesting and gripping Stephen King story I've read yet. The mob mentality that is created and the twist that makes this horror instead...
