This story is not without its problems and won't be suited to everyone's tastes. It is ghoulish and a tad gory, and depending on your sensibilities you may be disgusted, even offended. But before it goes there it is a magnificent piece of storytelling steeped in dread and what I like to call, epic creep.
One reviewer has l Well, well, well, what do we have here? One reviewer has likened it to Open Water meets The Ruins and that's not inaccurate. Getting lost in tall grass is one of my most primal fears. And I don't mean grass that comes up to your waist icky enough , but grass that is over your head and obscures the view of what's in front of you. Stuff lives in grass. Entire ecosystems of crawly, stinging biting things. Then there's mud and dew and pollen and mice and snakes and well I don't want to be there.
No way. The first half of this 60 page short story is so very strong in the way it taps into our claustrophobic fear of becoming lost. As humans we are very good at -- not to mention very attached to -- knowing where we are at any given moment in space and time. Our evolutionary sense of well-being depends on it.

Stephen Lang Narrator. Mile 81 meets N. In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver. This is their second collaboration since the novella Throttle , published in Get A Copy.

This is one of the first short stories I have started to read. It was very quick, and didnt have the detail I wanted in it. Although the story was good, I wished for it to be longer. There is deff some "disturbing" parts in the book. Not terrible, just longed for more I guess? Fiona M. Clements-Russell I think the fact that you " It's a wonderful medium for writing - everything …more I think the fact that you " It's a wonderful medium for writing - everything has to be compressed into a smaller space.
I always liken it to getting one bite of your favourite desert It just leaves you hungry for more! But on a serious note, short stories are not for everyone - personally, I love them, when they are well-written, which I found this one was. Also, being a collaborative of Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill, it was a 'must read' for me.
Just to continue the food analogy, if you think of a short story as a starter, rather than the more filling experience that a four course meal in reading a novel provides, then you may find you will end up addicted to all these delicious little 'bites', and get into short stories more, too! With such short story collections, you can dip in and out of books at your leisure, without having to go the whole distance of a novel.
Not that it is ever a struggle to read a superb long novel - I have read both "It" and "The Stand", two of Stephen King 's longer works more times than I can count!
Something draws me back to his work over and over! These is some superb writing out there in the short story genre, and if you are into Horror, look no further than ANY collection from Crystal Lake Publishing, where you will find the absolute epitome of horror writing by some of the best authors in the business.
The standard of writing that Crystal Lake Publishing Readers enjoy is, in my own humble opinion, some of the very best in the business, and that is a big claim to make. I hope that your first experience of a short story won't put you off, as there are some absolutely amazing gems of storytelling in this format.
However, if you found it too unsatisfactory, then, well, just go on and order the whole menu that a good novel can satisfy you with, instead! Whatever you read, please enjoy - these wonderful escapes into fiction and non-fiction that authors have brought us are supposed to be a pleasure, not a bad experience, and while there are always going to be differences of opinions, I love both short story collections, as well as novels.

Strip it away and we quickly lose our shit. Panic, fear, frustration, they all come bubbling to the surface as we projectile rage against the environment that has conspired against us in such an unforgivable betrayal. What is that tree doing there? That wasn't there before. I thought the river was to the east of us.
I'm sure the car is just over the next hill there. As much as we hate it, getting lost is pretty much a universal human experience. It's probably happened to all of us at one time or another, even if it was for a very short period of time in a new city or on a short hike in a national park. King and Hill take that germ of an idea and run with it like mad lunatics in an asylum. This is a supernatural horror story, so if you like realism and stories that "could really happen" this might not be your thing.
I wasn't entirely satisfied with the explanation of what is really going on in the tall grass, but enjoyed the first half of the story so much I'm willing to overlook that here.
Plus, the story is just so well-written. It's tightly coiled prose with some great phrasing and sentence structure. These guys know what they're doing, okay? There are a few things that happen in the story where I was like: Fess up!
These guys work good together though, and I'm looking forward to many more collaborations fingers crossed. Let me just say that these previews have got me so revved up to read the books next year. If I thought I couldn't wait before, now I'm positively slavering to get my hands on them.
Almost another whole year! And what if the Mayan calender is right and we all go boom in December? What then people? What then? View all 7 comments.

In this short story, brother and sister, Cal and Becky, are driving when they hear a boy in the tall grass asking for help. He is lost and can't find his way out.

She is warning her son to be quiet or "he" will hear you. Who is this "he" she is referring to. Wanting to help, the brother sister duo both enter the tall grass This short story can easily be read in one sitting and evokes a feeling of dread.
Will they find the boy? Will they find each other as they were instantly separated? More and more I am enjoying books that evoke that feeling of dread; ones that get your heart beating because you don't know what is going to happen next. You know something is going to happen Ahhhh, that anticipatory anxiety. I think Hill and King were successful in this. But then once the "reveal" if you can call it that occurred, I felt a little let down. This is where the short story lost a little of it's magic for me.
Sometimes I think it is better to never see the source of terror is. That is what makes it terrorizing. We use our own minds to create the "evil" that would scare us the most. Yes, that is my fan fiction take on this.
In the Tall grass is still enjoyable. Definitely worth reading. See more of my reviews at www. View 2 comments.

A little boy screaming for help from beyond the tall Kansas grass. The two know right away they have to help the boy, but when they enter the grass they discover finding their way out is impossible. The first sentence grabbed me and by the time they heard the voice of little lost Tobin crying for help I was on the edge of my seat — where I firmly remained until the last page. That being said, just as King knows the art of painting the horror story with a nice broad brush, Joe Hill knows how to get right to the point and not spend a second on unnecessary details.

Oct 22, Gregor Xane rated it liked it Shelves: The product description for this book wasn't honest, and that kind of ticks me off. The way it's listed on site, it looks like you're going to get a novella-length story written by Stephen King and his son Joe Hill. It really kind of fucks with the story's rhythm and flow. Yes, you can open up the Look Inside sample and see the teasers listed in the TOC for this book, but who does that when downloading something written by Stephen King?
Also, when you've downloaded side-loaded, or whatever the book to your site and open that puppy up, you are taken to the beginning of the book to start reading.
It takes a special effort to look at the table of contents. And why exactly would you look at the table of contents before you start reading what you think is a novella? Oh, wait, what about the story, the at most novelette , In the Tall Grass? It was pretty good. It started out genuinely scary and got rather disturbing and disgusting as it went along.
All very good for a horror story. BUT the ending was so goofy and filled with dopey, unrealistic characters, and, worst of all, it was redundant. We already knew what kind of story this was pretty early on.
We didn't need a giant, tacky neon sign at the end to spell it all out for us. Get it from your local library's digital collection or wait for a price break. View all 10 comments. Great short story This is the first Stephen King story, or Joe Hill story for that matter, that actually turned my stomach. The writing is vivid, filled with brutal simplicity that drives the horror home. I didn't feel all that attached to either Cal or Becky, but what Becky goes through in the later part of this short story would crush the heart of any parent.
No, not just crush. This is also the first collaboration of father and s "In the Tall Grass" is one of the most disturbing tales I've ever read. This is also the first collaboration of father and son where I was able to pinpoint which author wrote what sections. I've come to know Hill's work well enough that I can catch certain sentence structures he commonly uses.
I couldn't imagine writing such a piece with my son or daughter, but these two pulled it off. I will never forget this story. View 1 comment. May 24, Sean Smart rated it it was amazing.
A very impressive well written scary short story from father and son King. Jan 17, Sumit RK rated it it was ok. This one is easily one of his most disturbing short stories you will read.
The story was tense and creepy but it has more about gore than horror. Not for everyone. Oct 08, Wayne Barrett rated it really liked it Shelves: The King and his heir work well together. I felt claustrophobic while reading this and if I ever hear a kid calling for help from a field like this one, they're screwed. Amantes del terror.
For those who do not know, Joe uses a pen name because he did not want to rely on his father's fame. Still, eventually it became known that Joe is Joseph Hillstrom, King's eldest son. This has been quite an experience.In this tiny 60 page span, I: It was pretty good. But the man didn't care to look—for in the little clearing between the wall of Killimaga and the bluff road was peace too profound to be wantonly disturbed by motion.
