Needful Things By Stephen King

Needful Things


Title: Needful Things

Author: Stephen King

Publication Date: October 1991

Genre: Horror




Needful Things, the sign says. The oddest name. A name that causes some gossip and speculation among the good folks of Castle Rock, Maine, while they wait for opening day. There was something for everyone at a price they could just about afford. The cash price that is.

My Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I buddy read this with a couple of ladies from Instagram. I went into this book completely blind which is what I do with all of King’s books now. I didn’t have any expectations and I didn’t know what to expect.

This was one of those books where you have to read to the end to know how you really feel about it. When I started it, I was intrigued, and I wanted to keep reading to find out what happens and what the point was. Unfortunately, after finishing it I was still left with so many unanswered questions and what was revealed to us just wasn’t satisfying enough for me. 

The buildup was great. King is a great storyteller but, in my opinion, he struggles with ending his books. If the reasoning was different, I might have enjoyed this one more. I seem to have an unpopular opinion on this book so don’t take my word for it. If this sounds like something you would enjoy I definitely think you should read it because like I said everything but the end was good for me.
