Hi guys! It’s me again with my unappealing blog and blog posts!
Today, I am going to be sharing with you my thoughts and opinion about this lengthy, thriller book by Stephen King. As not many people know, I am a fan of books with thriller or paranormal genres. I don’t even know why I love them even if they give me nightmares for days. Take note, days. But of course, being scary as heck is a sign that the book is damn good. Trust me, I’ve read some crappy ones and they just made me feel frustrated rather than scared. But anyways, let’s get down to the review. Please subscribe to my blog or something. Share to your friends. Please, please, please, comment about your thoughts on my blog. Your critiques are highly appreciated. LET’S DO THIS!
This book is a bout a small town called Castle Rock in Maine. It is quite simple, peaceful and everything until a little shop was built. Apparently, no one knows what kind of shop this is so one night (or afternoon, I’ve forgotten the exact timeframe. Sorry) before the actual opening day a kid decided to visit the shop and strangely the sign said OPEN so the kid entered the shop and bought something and started the unfortunate chain of events.
>What I Like About this Book:
1.)I liked how, despite the number of characters here, everyone was connected. Not specifically in a way where they’re relatives but in a sort of way where their actions would trigger a reaction from another character.
2.) The sequencing of events. I find it quite nice how the story slowly goes from a totally relaxed, chill state to a suddenly and seemingly uncontrollable chaos where everyone wanted to kill each other.
3.) The mysterious products. I don’t know I just seemed to like them.
4.) Sherrif Allan Pangborn’s and Polly Chalmer’s history. Out of all the characters’ histories shared, the history of these two is the most remarkable in my opinion. I liked the fact that they’ve suffered something terrible and that made them more relatable for each other.
Now if there are things that I liked about this book, there are also some things that I didn’t like.
And here they are:
1.) Too many characters. I didn’t like the fact that there are so many characters. And given that they each had a story of their own, it kind of strays from the original story.
2.) The ending. I’m not gonna say what the ending was. I’m just gonna say that I find the ending a little anticlimactic. I mean, after 670+ pages, the ending I would get was this?! BTW, the ending I’m saying is not the literal ending but how the story was resolved.
And that, my friends, is my review for Needful Things by Stephen King. I hope you enjoyed reading it.
