Another pretty good story from Stephen King, it wasn’t the best thing ever. There were a lots of things in this story which could have been much better but in the end this story was pretty good.
This story is one of the best short stories written by Stephen King have written so far. But as we all know his novels are much better than the short stories.
This story needs to get points for being short and enjoyable. This story is far from the “average” Stephen King novel because there are a lots of things in this story which could have been better.
Stephen King in this story does a good job in building up the tense atmosphere for the entire story as well as creating an unforgettable & terrifying imagery describing this monster.
The beginning of this story may remind some of you of “IT”, because it involves a young kid, a monster and water. Which some of you may find dark and powerful.
The whole plot was pretty basic, it could be much better if Stephen King would have put much more effort into creating a little bit deeper plot in this story.
The writing style was pretty good, however it is far from the classic Stephen King style which we can see in his novels.
It’s important to mention that this whole story have some nostalgic parts in it, which the adults and older folks will appreciate.
The concept of this story is pretty good. But still not much to talk about here. For me this story shows that some authors should stick with the long novels which they are known for.
This story is for the most part about grief and centers around a young boy and his fear of losing his Mom, which most kids relate to.
I give this story 2 / 5
