As usual, Stephen King's newest release, If It Bleeds, was responsible for sleepless hours and minor heart attacks - I really do not understand why I read his books at night, living alone as I do. He is so very skilled at building atmosphere, and in dragging you down into stories where you should not be, and into states of mind that are not good for the generally anxious reader that I am. I particularly enjoyed (if that is the right word) the title story, which features Holly Gibney, Jerome Robinson, and several other of the characters from King's Mr. Mercedes trilogy. This story finds Holly the owner of a detective agency, Finders Keepers, on the trail of another Outsider and in terrible peril.

The story that left me sleeping with my lights on was Mr. Harrigan's Phone, which tells the story of young Craig, who works for rich Mr. Harrigan in his mansion on the hill. When Mr. Harrigan dies - he is an elderly man and in ill health - Craig ensures that Mr. Harrigan is buried with his much-loved iPhone, a present from Craig on which Mr. Harrigan tracks the stock market. Burying the iPhone with his erstwhile boss is a mistake, a terrible, eerie mistake that had me reading through a crack in my cave of blankets, blinds drawn, all background noises making me jump and gasp for air. I put down the book for three days afterwards as I was scared to read more.

The Life of Chuck was written backwards; that is, its beginning is at the end and vice versa. I thought it was very well done, particularly as the scary bits were in the beginning, and then the story got tamer as it went. It was cleverly done. This novella left me wanting to read Walt Whitman, which is an unusual outcome for a horror story!

I didn't get a lot out of the final story, Rat, which is about a writer who goes to an isolated cabin in the woods to write a novel.

As always, a volume of Stephen King's stories is time well-spent and eagerly anticipated. This book did not disappoint. ( )

Horror
  BooksInMirror | Feb 19, 2024 |
Holly's story felt fresh. I enjoyed the balance between dealing with her monstrous mother for the holidays, then facing an actual monster. Some of the other stories felt like well-trodden ground. So many writers struggling to write, with shades of Jack just despising Wendy, as he smiles and smiles. If you add a mysterious tunnel to one of the stories you'd get a King novel. I prefer what's in this collection. The tunnel to fairy-tale world wasn't as good as the boy, his dad, and the old man. ( )

Solid Writing but not Five Stars

This isn't my favorite of King's work. As always, King delivers solid writing that keeps the reader interested, if not totally on edge, throughout the four novellas. The works are more thought-provoking than horrifying, which is actually a bit more nerve-wracking. Some of the images might tend to creep into the reader's mind hours, days, or weeks after reading the book. Are the ideas really so far-fetched? How many people have ever put an item into a loved one’s coffin to be buried with that person? Does this item have a profound link to the dead? And have you ever considered the effect your thoughts have once you release them into the world? What is the cosmos, after all?

Yes, this is a book of deep thoughts and deeper meaning. It kind of creates a bit of an earworm, with ideas going on and on and on... I heard King say he isn’t just a horror writer and after reading this I can agree 100% that there is more to this writer. I am a fan through and through and am here for the good the bad and the horrific.

...as classic as his novels are, his shorter fiction has been just as gripping over the years, and includes such classics as "The Body" and "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption."...King still owns the fright business like none other, but the iconic author will keep you up late at night engrossed in four tales about our dreams and our frailties.

...the mid-length narrative suits his talents particularly well, permitting a degree of expansiveness while maintaining a controlled, disciplined approach to the material at hand. The results are stories that cover a surprising amount of emotional territory but can still be read in a sitting....In “If It Bleeds,” King continues to draw from a rich and varied reservoir of stories. At its best, his work remains deeply empathetic and compulsively readable. May the reservoir never run dry.

The straightforward cadences of King’s voice, paired with his signature sit-down-and-let-me-tell-you-a-story style, were immediately soothing. And the stories he was telling — about the seductions and corruptions of technology, the extremes of beauty and depravity in even the most ordinary life, the workings of a universe we can never entirely understand — were somehow exactly what I wanted to read right now.... I wouldn’t begrudge any reader refuge in familiar pleasures, least of all now. We all need solace wherever we can find it... As sirens blare outside my Brooklyn window and the headlines grow more apocalyptic by the day, I might start working my way through King’s backlist. He’s good company in the dark.

The master of supernatural disaster returns with four horror-laced novellas....King has gone a far piece from the killer clowns and vampires of old, with his monsters and monstrosities taking on far more quotidian forms—which makes them all the scarier. Vintage King: a pleasure for his many fans and not a bad place to start if you’re new to him.
tillagd av Lemeritus | ändraKirkus Reviews (Mar 15, 2020)
 
This set of novellas is thought-provoking, terrifying, and, at times, outright charming, showcasing King’s breadth as a master storyteller. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: King’s love of short fiction makes this a powerful addition to his megapopular oeuvre and fans will be on the hunt.

He should have bought stock in Anheuser-Busch, that was how much he drank. He could do it because he was retired, and comfortably off, and very depressed.
