Although it was partly my fault for not recognizing the title, I feel a little ripped off because both these stories are from Full Dark No Stars. The publish date was 2014, so I just assumed this was a new book. Nope. Nice play B&N--I fell for it!

I'm biased when it comes to Stephen King. He's the only author that I own all his books. Big Driver is a quick read and fully engaging. It's a thrilling story though missing the creative (supernatural) twists that I admire and converted me to one of his constant readers. I would recommend this story to any of my friends that choose against a King book due to the 'fear/scare' factor. For years his novellas and collections have been broken up and individual stories advertised and sold separately. Not having a photographic memory, I purchased the story believing it is new only to discover I've already read it. It's frustrating. Guess I'll dig deeper into the story's origin in the future.

I too, should have read the full cover. If I had, I would have noticed old Mr. King is up to his old tricks of releasing old novels/short stories under a new title. The story was up to snuff for his work. I'm just feeling ripped off because of the whole re-release thing. I guess I should consider myself luckier than most in that I did not actually buy the book. Instead I sat on a waiting list at my library for over 4 months for a digital license copy to become available. Might have been worth the $5 to purchase, but it was in no way worth the 4 months anticipating what I thought was a new release.

Although I am well aware that Stephen King has a particularly nasty habit of rereleasing old novels under new titles, and I didn't check carefully enough, so is's really my own fault, I am feeling ripped off. I think Stephen King is an amazing writer and story teller, save for a few clunkers and difficuty ending them. But I think he does his loyal readers a diservice with this practice. It sure seems like a tawdry money making scheme. Or is he trying to appear to be more prolific than he is. Competing with Koontz, perhaps?

Kind of disappointing. The main character lacked the depth of most of King's main characters. It seemed like a novel with all the guts ripped out to be sold as a novella. I did like the second story more but it still seemed lackluster for King. Three stars because it is King after all and he can't really write badly... just not as good as other works.

Good read...horrific at times. Didn't really feel like it "ended," though.

Anyone who reads will find this book compelling, and wanting to stay off the short cut roads.  Maybe even carry a gun and know how to use it when you drive.  I love this book and I loved the movie on Lifetime.  I will read it again and watch the movie again.   Very well written and King always keeps my captivated.  If you read anything By king this book should be one you also read.
