Excerpt From ''Suffer Little Children''

More giggles, soft and sticky as melting soap.

''Miss Sidley is-''

Stop it! Stop that noise!

By moving slightly she could see their shadows, made fuzzy and ill-defined by the diffuse light filtering through the frosted windows, holding onto each other with girlish glee.

Another thought crawled up out of her mind.

They knew she was there.

Yes. Yes they did. The little bi----s knew.

She would shake them. Shake them until their teeth rattled and their giggles turned to wails, she would make them admit they knew.

That was when the shadows changed. They seemed to elongate, to flow like dripping tallow, taking on strange hunched shapes that made Miss Sidley cringe back against the porcelain washstands, her heart swelling in her chest.

But they went on giggling.

The voices changed, no longer girlish, now sexless and soulless, and quite, quite evil. A slow, turgid sound of mindless humor that flowed around the corners to her like sewage.

She stared at the hunched shadows and suddenly screamed at the. The scream went on and on, swelling in her head until it acquainted a pitch of lunacy. And then she fainted. The giggling, like the laughter of demons, followed her down into darkness.

Opinion

I think this book was great. I enjoyed the gruesome stories as it is common Stephen King work. In this book though I enjoyed the pass timer and small short stories he decided to put in. The show as well is nice and really depicts the stories well and I loved that.

Recommendation

This book is great for anybody who like to read short stories of all kinds. It also perfect if you need a short break to unwind. If you like these Stephen King made 2 other collections of short stories as well. Hope at least one of them catches your attention.
