[Novel] Needful Things (Stephen King)

Needful Things

Book

I haven’t heard much about Needful Things compared to other Stephen King’s books, but it might have actually turned out to be my favorite of his as the main boogeyman here only plays people and their already prevalent frustrations against each other to create a grand spectacle of horror.

It feels a lot more grounded in reality and plausibility than his other books.

Positive:
Negative:
Flowing, pleasant prose
Doesn’t really offer anything particularly mind-blowing
Spooky, unnerving atmosphere
Interesting, likable, relatively profound characters
An involving plot that consists of the whole town going nuts
Thought-provoking on the fragility of society
