I read these out of order because I knew that I wasn’t going to like Apt Pupil very much and I wanted to get it over with soonest. I admire the skill of the plot and the psychology of these two twisted souls feeding off of each other, but it was more sickening than enjoyable (I’m hoping that’s what King wanted). The other three stories I liked a lot more. The Breathing Method is more my kind of weird – a spooky tale within the great framework of the “gentlemen’s story club.” I knew that I would love The Body (though I think I like the movie better - sacrilege!) and Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. They have a kind of nostalgia that I love, and I became so attached to the characters.
