Em’s choice this month – we’ve all read some Stephen King along the way – Em LOVES him I think 🙂 and so it’s no surprise she’s nominated one of his for BotM. I’m really looking forward to reading these short stories as I’ve not done any Stephen King for a while. As we’re doing The Running Man and The Long Walk, we’ll be on these for March and April to give everyone chance to read both.
As usual – feel free to join us in a read along – if you want a guest review just send it over or get in touch with comments 🙂
Nice one Em! I love Mr King as well.
The Bachman Books were good actually. I think Roadwork is possibly my favourite out of them though for some reason it is the least popular.
Ah – another Constant Reader! I think the good thing about the Bachman Books is the different viewpoint they take from King’s usual work – I guess the reason behind the pseudonym is to release you from the constraints of preconceptions of your writing. I’ve always loved The Long Walk, and we’ll be focussing on this and on ‘The Running Man’ for the book of the month feature – these seem to sit well together, and tie in well to books such as The Hunger Games, so a good introduction for newcomers to King/ Bachman. Look forward to hearing your thoughts on the reviews!! 🙂
Yup, I liked The Long Walk as well actually.
It’s must be over 10 years since I last read them though, I might feel differently about them.
Will you be reading along with us?
