“Battleground” by Stephen King Review

Renshaw is a professional hit-man, who returns from his assassination of a toy-maker to find a package delivered to his penthouse apartment. The package contains a G.I. Joe Vietnam Footlocker, sent to him by the mother of the toy-maker he had recently killed. When he opens the package, he finds that the toy soldiers are alive with working copies of weapons, jeeps, and helicopters. To Renshaw’s surprise, the tiny soldiers begin to attack him

This story is involving toys coming to life and trying to take over humanity come from. Which isn’t bad but this it is super overused now on days. However Stephen King with this story was able to o reel us in and still entertain us with just 10 ish pages.

A lots of horror fans or Stephen King fans will enjoy this story however there will be some people who will don’t like it because in the end this story is very bizarre. 

However this story needs to get points for being humorous yet grotesque. This story is good when you just want to read something without putting any brain power to it. Because in the this story is Toy Story written by Stephen King.

The writing style was okay, but don’t expect the classic Stephen King style in this one because you wont get it here. Which is very disappointing.

I need to give this story points for having an interesting idea which could have been so much better than it actually was. 

The beginning itself was pretty hard to understand the concept of. So thats that, the ending is some how better but still it isnt something which is good.

I give this story 1 / 5
