Books I've read this week - Everything's Eventual

Everything’s Eventual © 2002 by Stephen King

About the book: International bestselling author Stephen King is in terrifying top form with his first collection of short stories I almost a decade. In this spine-chilling compilation, King takes readers down a road less traveled (for good reason) in the blockbuster e-Book “Riding the Bullet,” bad table service turns bloody when you stop in for “Lunch at the Gotham Café’,” and terror becomes déjà vu all over again when you get “That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French,” – along with eleven more stories that will keep you awake until daybreak. Enter a nightmarish mindscape of unrelenting horror and shocking revelations that could only come from the imagination of the greatest storyteller of our times.

Yes, this is an older book but this is some of King’s best work if you like short stories. It starts out with an adrenaline rush in “Autopsy Room Four,” which I thought was the best story in the entire book. A man who is paralyzed and seems dead is about to undergo an autopsy but his mind is very much alive. This was an “Oh my God!” type of story and will keep you on the edge of your seat until you get to the end. If you’re a King fan, you won’t want to miss Everything’s Eventual.
