    How the hell is this story s average rating so low In my so humble opinion, it is one of King s finest one of the finest from Night Shift, anyway First off, I just want to fanboy about that openerAfter the guy was dead and the smell of his burning flesh was off the air, we all went back down to the beachHoly moly, that line It s such a strong grabber it d make Donald Trump jealous As a writer and lover of short fiction , I always strive to create strong opening lines Sometimes I How the hell is this story s average rating so low In my so humble opinion, it is one of King s finest one of the finest from Night Shift, anyway First off, I just want to fanboy about that openerAfter the guy was dead and the smell of his burning flesh was off the air, we all went back down to the beachHoly moly, that line It s such a strong grabber it d make Donald Trump jealous As a writer and lover of short fiction , I always strive to create strong opening lines Sometimes I do sometimes I don t I ve yet to come close to that excellence, though The sheer genuineness of the sentence, though, is not the words themselves but this after King makes sure he has the reader s full attention, he shifts focus completely, leaving in the air the mystery Who is the guy these people burned Why did they burn him What s going on here It is only after a page and a half that we are clued in on who the burned man was, and why his death was necessary This is certainly one of King s most atmospheric tales he is a master at writing the end of the world Seriously It s a topic he has covered five or six times now, and it is always original, always cutting edge, always fresh The setting of this one a desolate, deserted beach at nighttime is particularly haunting One can sense the brooding loneliness of the abandoned planet Earth just seeping off the pagesYeah, this is an all time Stephen King great The fact that it fits so well into the universe of The Stand doesn t hurt however, this story would still stand up if that great novel had never been written As is often the case in his short fiction, King hits every mark with flawless aim King Connections This so belongs in The Stand s universe that it could ve been folded into that book Favorite QuoteWe came over the ridge and I paused I always have to pause Before A6, this had been a public beach Tourists, picnickers, runny noses kids and fat baggy grandmothers with sunburned elbows Candy wrappers and popsicle sticks in the sand, all the beautiful people necking on their beach blankets, intermingled stench of exhaust from the parking lot, seaweed, and Coppertone oil But now all the dirt and all the crap was gone The ocean had eaten it, all of it, as casually as you might eat a handful of Cracker Jacks There were no people to come back and dirty it again Just us, and we weren t enough to make much mess Up Next I Am The Doorway

    So short I could have read this full length feature book, but it s just missing the meat I ll also add I don t appreciate the narrator s meanness towards heavier women.

    Captain Trips This is just 10 measly paperback pages, yet The Stand grew out of it 10 years later A couple of minor details about the disease were changed in the novel, but otherwise this could be a small side adventure we didn t get to see in the larger work.And what a coincidence that I should stumble upon this during our Ebola crisis, or epidemic As of this writing, various governments including, or perhaps especially our own US , the Center for Disease Confusion and the World Healt Captain Trips This is just 10 measly paperback pages, yet The Stand grew out of it 10 years later A couple of minor details about the disease were changed in the novel, but otherwise this could be a small side adventure we didn t get to see in the larger work.And what a coincidence that I should stumble upon this during our Ebola crisis, or epidemic As of this writing, various governments including, or perhaps especially our own US , the Center for Disease Confusion and the World Health Organization seem to be taking their cues from The Stand on how they should handle it Stephen King might be the master of fear, but the WHO and CDC are the undisputed masters of fear mongering SARS swine flu bird flu hand, foot and mouth disease The world is still here, as are the vast majority of its inhabitants Get a grip, people What s going to happen when a real Captain Trips shows up We ll be so used to everyone crying wolf when they actually saw a Yorkie that we won t do a thing, and then we ll all be just as dead as if we had done something, and been denied a warranted Chicken Little panic in the bargain

    The premise behind Night Surf has great potential It opens on a group of twentysomethings setting a man on fire before view spoiler revealing that a super flu has wiped out most of humanity hide spoiler That alone made me want to keep reading, which leads to this piece s biggest failing it feels uncompleted I feel like I just read half a prologue to a much larger story Some people say that this correlates with King s novel The Stand, which is up next after my read of Night Shift Ano The premise behind Night Surf has great potential It opens on a group of twentysomethings setting a man on fire before view spoiler revealing that a super flu has wiped out most of humanity hide spoiler That alone made me want to keep reading, which leads to this piece s biggest failing it feels uncompleted I feel like I just read half a prologue to a much larger story Some people say that this correlates with King s novel The Stand, which is up next after my read of Night Shift Another big thing and the main reason behind my star deductions is how misogynistic and fat shaming the main character was All he talked about was how flabby his love interest was All we know about his previous love interest was that she was a big girl and that he loved her a whole lotThe MC threatens to hit the love interest A big NOPE on that aspect
