Description

Mile 81 meets "N." in this collaboration between Stephen King and Joe Hill.

As USA TODAY said of Stephen King's Mile 81: "Park and scream. Could there be any better place to set a horror story than an abandoned rest stop?" In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they've lost one another. The boy's cries are more and more desperate. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.

  • (4/5)
    A short but sweet collaboration between Stephen King and his son Joe Hill, a Lovecraftian (an over- as well as misused word, but applicable here) short story about the travels, literally and figuratively, of a brother and sister on a cross-country trip. They end up traveling to a very strange country indeed.
  • (4/5)
    short and gruesome. a little gem
  • (3/5)
    Excellent! A good old-fashioned horror story, classic. It's short so you should read it, now.
  • (4/5)
    classic King style story, keeps you on the edge of your seat.
  • (5/5)
    Wow, that was gruesome! Classic King! A brother and sister, driving across country, stop and hear a child calling for help from the tall grass. They go in and... well, that's when the "fun" starts! Creepy, terrifying, and disturbing, as only Stephen King, and son, can! Not for the faint of heart!

    This is a novella by Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill. While I enjoyed the story, there seemed to be something missing. The end seemed to come abruptly and I was left hanging. At first I thought that part of the book was missing. Still, it's written in typical King style, taking a simple field of grass in Nowhere, Kansas, and turning it into something frightening. Brother and sister are heading west and stop in Kansas. From the weeds across the road they hear a child calling for help. They cross the road and enter the tall grass and the terror begins.
