Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of four novellas, markedly different in tone and subject, includes three that have become well-received movies. The first (filmed as The Shawshank Redemption) is a rich, satisfying tale about an innocent man who nurtures hope and devises a scheme to escape from prison. In "Apt Pupil", a boy discards his innocence by enticing an old man to travel with him into a reawakening of long-buried evil. In "The Body" (filmed as Stand By Me), a writer looks back on the trek he took with three friends on the brink of adolescence. The final novella, "The Breathing Method", is a horror yarn about a woman whose indomitable spirit keeps her baby alive under extraordinary circumstances.

Review:

"He creates people who are so alive, you can almost sense them." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Synopsis:

From the Magical Pen of Stephen King, Four Mesmerizing Novellas…

“Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption”

An unjustly imprisoned convict seeks a strange and startling revenge…the basis for the Best Picture Academy Award nominee The Shawshank Redemption.

“Apt Pupil”

Todd Bowden is one of the top students in his high school class and a typical American sixteen-year-old—until he becomes obsessed about the dark and deadly past of an older man in town. The inspiration for the film Apt Pupil from Phoenix Pictures.

“The Body”

Four rambunctious young boys plunge through the façade of a small town and come face-to-face with life, death, and intimations of their own mortality. The film Stand By Me is based on this novella.

“The Breathing Method”

A disgraced woman is determined to triumph over death.

 

Synopsis:

Four mesmerizing novellas, including the inspirations for the movies The Shawshank Redemption, Apt Pupil and Stand By Me.
