    3. 4.5 I believe that there is another man inside of every man, a stranger, a Conniving Man This is a ghost story A dark, eerie and unsettling tale about greed, murder, guilt and comeuppance It is a story about crime and punishment It begins with a confession and it ends withrats Lots of rats In a word, it is a typical King story

    4. I accidentally unknowing read 1922, because I thought it was sort of a part two to A Good Marriage I kept reading to see how the two stories would tie in together I kept waiting for a familiar name or scene that would link the two and it never came.

    8. Now there s the Stephen King that I know and love.I ve been wanting to find a copy of Full Dark, No Stars for a while now my amazing aunt snagged a water damaged copy from a thrift store, and I ve begun in earnest since finishing some bucket list reads.I have not been disappointed I think one thing that has always been dependable is King s short story game while he tends to get carried away with descriptive work in longer stories, he is far concise and intuitive in his novellas.1922 is old King [...]

    9. 1922 ist eine knapp einhundertneunzig Seiten lange Novelle, die in Deutschland in der Sammlung Zwischen Nacht und Dunkel erschienen ist Da ich schon viele Kurzgeschichten aus der Story Selection Reihe von Stephen King gelesen habe, musste auch diese unbedingt auf meinem Reader landen und ich muss sagen, das mich der Autor wieder einmal berzeugen konnte.Der Hauptgrund, um die Geschichte jetzt endlich zu lesen, war f r mich die Tatsache, dass die Geschichte ab Oktober als Verfilmung auf Netflix zu [...]

    12. Stephen King is hands down the King of Horror In all my years of reading horror, not to mention true crime books, in 1922 I have encountered the first ever time I had to put a book down and take a break to collect myself through a scene because it was so gruesome my mind just could not tolerate another word What is , I was actually afraid to take it up again.

    15. In his masterful novella, King introduces the reader to Wilfred James, farmer in a small Nebraska community in 1922 James owns 80 acres on which he earns a livelihood, alongside his wife, Arlette, and their son, Henry When Arlette comes into 100 acres, through an inheritance, Wilfred tries to talk her into keeping it to expand his land share However, Arlette has her own plans, much to Wilfred s chagrin Through a shocking plot to gain ownership himself, Wilfred convinces Henry to help him murder [...]

    16. 1922 is a long short story by Stephen King told as a confession from Wilfred James about killing his wife with the help of his son Henry From Wilfred s point of view, his wife Arlette, was a piece of work rude to him and Henry, didn t help around the farm, and wanted to sell the land given to her by her father Her desire to sell the land is the last straw The confession pulls you into Wilfred s story immediately and to see everything spiral out of control after the murder keeps the suspense grow [...]

    17. When I first read this, a few months after release IIRC, I wasn t a fan However, what I love about re reading is that I get another chance with a story, because sometimes there s something going on with me where I don t care for a story and it s not the actual tale that is a dud 1922 is such a story It s still not my top story in the collection that honor will always go to Big Driver but I pretty much loved it this time around.

    20. A sinister lesson of greed and domestic disputes overshadowed by rodents.You can t help feel for the protagonist as he attempts to keep his world stable with every step made creating consequences, whether his decision was self centered is up for discussion As someone whose parents once argued non stop, I feel Will and Arlettes home life being too close to comfort for me That was what the story really was for me, themes of spite, fury and control of others I feel the novel ends with an element of [...]

    22. Rats, a dead body, guilt, young love, the demon drink, and It s classic King sometimes annoying with his turn of phrase but always very readable No matter what you think of him, Stephen King is a natural born storyteller.

    27. 1922 Stephen King This novella was the first of King s horror work that I have read, I went through The Dark Tower series last year as well as one of his fantasy novels, and it did not disappoint This story paints the picture of Wilfred James, a simple farmer who lives and works on his farm that has been passed down through several generations with his wife and fourteen year old son When his wife who has inherited a 100 acre plot next to the family farm from her father tells him that she wants t [...]

    28. The story of 1922 is sold as something quite different than what it ends up being When you have The Master of Horror behind the pen, it s easy to assume this is just another ghost story and it is for the most part But like all classic Stephen King, things are left to interpretation Was the supernatural events that Wilfred describe in his confession letter actually happening Again, the answer is quite ambiguous If you go into this story expecting frights and ghouls, then the answer to that questi [...]
