Miss Sidley, an experienced, no-nonsense teacher starts to lose her bearings when she suspects one of her students, Robert, is not quite human. In a momentary reflection in her eyeglasses she thinks she may have seen Robert changing into a monster. She soon discovers that not only does Robert change, but he may not be the only one of his kind. Sidley must get rid of them before it’s too late.
This is a short story written by no other than the horror goat himself aka Stephen King. Who doesn’t love a horror story from Stephen King ?
The whole plot is wow. Because if you take the concept of school teachers and school students and write a horror story to it, a lot of insane things can happen.
This story may make some of you wonder if your teacher from school life you had wanted at some point kill you. At least it make me a little bit wonder about that.
The ending will definitely make your jaw drop. Because it makes this story even more twisted than it already was from the beginning. But for some of you the ending might seem as too much and too fast going. But again it is a personal think which people will disagree on as every other book in the world.
For the most part this whole story was very dark, strange but also at times very unique because of the topic it touches on. It is important to say that this story involves child murder thoughts, so be warned about this if it might trigger some of you.
This story doesn’t fail like the classic Stephen King we know from the usual books he writes. This tale is a different take on his work. But the writing style here is the classic Stephen King in this one. Which of course means very dark, easy to get into, moody and amazing.
I give this story 2 / 5
