Night Shift by Stephen King Book Summary

Stephen King’s first collection of short stories, originally published in 1978, showcases the darkest depths of his brilliant imagination and will "chill the cockles of many a heart" (Chicago Tribune). Night Shift is the inspiration for over a dozen acclaimed horror movies and television series, including Children of the Corn , Chapelwaite, and Lawnmower Man.

Here we see mutated rats gone bad (“Graveyard Shift”); a cataclysmic virus that threatens humanity (“Night Surf,” the basis for The Stand); a possessed, evil lawnmower (“The Lawnmower Man”); unsettling children from the heartland (“Children of the Corn”); a smoker who will try anything to stop (“Quitters, Inc.”); a reclusive alcoholic who begins a gruesome transformation (“Gray Matter”); and many more shadows and visions that will haunt you long after the last page is turned.

Night Shift (Stephen King) Book Reviews

ClassicThis collection originally came out in the early 80s and scared the bejesus out of an 11 year old with an overactive imagination. It still works on me some 30 odd years later..Score: 5/5

BoringNothing to see here, just keep moving along. No fear, no fright. Uninspired writing of stories with “surprise” endings that didn’t surprise. No prose or poetry, just flat narrative.Let’s face it, King is no Dean Koontz!.Score: 2/5

Night shiftThis a great one for people new to Stephen King. This was my first book I read of his and I loved it. He is such a great writer. After you read a few of the stories, I bet you will be dreaming about the stories when you are asleep. Enjoy, I know I did!.Score: 5/5

Great collection.I read this a while ago. Back in August I watched a 1997 film called the game. It reminded me of something I couldn’t put my finger on, but now after reading Night Shift a second time, I remember now. It reminded me of the short story Quitters Inc. which is One of the stories featured in this collection..Score: 5/5

Amazing!I read one story before I went to bed. What do you know? A Nightmare. This book will give you chills! Highly recommend you buy it!.Score: 5/5

A great bookThe stories in this book are all amazing, but Jerusalem's Lot! Is in my opinion one of the best short stories ever! A masterpiece in horror. I will never get those visions from that story out of my head, and it even drove me to become a writer myself. Stephen King is a legend in our time. We are blessed to have his imagination at our fingertips..Score: 5/5

Great StoriesI love his ability to pull you in quickly. All these stories are great and fun to read.Score: 4/5

Terrifying collection from the King of Horror!This is one of only three short story collections I’ve read by Stephen King, along with Skeleton Crew and The Bazaar of Bad Dreams. I have also read Different Seasons and Four Past Midnight, but to me, those are collections of novellas, not short stories. This is one of the best horror story collections I’ve ever read! Every story is truly frightening! To me, the scariest stories include: Jerusalem’s Lot, Graveyard Shift, The Mangler, Gray Matter, I Am the Doorway, The Boogeyman, Strawberry Spring, Quitters, Inc., The Ledge, One for the Road, Battleground, Sometimes They Come Back, Children of the Corn, and The Man Who Loved Flowers. Thanks to The Green Mile and Hearts in Atlantis, I realize that not every Stephen King reader may be a horror fan, but for those who are, I highly, highly recommend this book!.Score: 5/5

ClassicOne of the first book of short stories I read by Stephen King. I was in the 6th grade and ‘The Boogeyman’ scared me into some serious insomnia for quite some time. The very best thing that Stephen King does is draw people into his stories. The characters - the reader loves the ones he wants us to love and loathe the ones who are bullies, mean, abusive drunks, people who are very unlikable. Even though they aren’t always evil. The evil is neither loathed nor loved. The evil is what the reader fears..Score: 5/5

It changed my lifeI was 11 years old when I first read this book given to me by my 31 years old brother. It is from the completion of this book, I decided to become a writer. I wanted to read everything in site. Till this day, Stephen King remains one of my top 5 authors. His writing skills are like no other! Read this Book!.Score: 5/5
