Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King contains 4 short stories. Classic Stephen King stories, but a little “more” believable, and thus more intense.

“1922” is the tale of a man who is confessing to killing his wife because she wouldn’t let him have her 100 acres of farmland. Sounds a little extreme, but he lives to regret this.

“Big Driver” is the story of Tessa, who is an author and travels around speaking to little old ladies about the books she has written. One night on the way home, she takes a different route, and is savagely beaten, raped and left for dead. But she gets her own revenge. I LOVED this one.

“Fair Extension” is about Dave, who is dying of cancer. He meets a man who tells him he can “extend” his life. But at what cost…

“A Good Marriage” is a story about Darcy, who finds out that perhaps she has not known her accountant husband as well as she thought. — Loved this one too!

 

Favorite Quotes from Full Dark, No Stars:  

“If you’re going into a very dark place, then you should take a bright light, and shine it on everything. If you don’t want to see, why in God’s name would you dare the dark at all?”

“I believe most people are essentially good. I know that I am. It’s you I’m not entirely sure of.”
