There was a new shop in town. Run by a stranger. Needful Things, the sign said. The oddest name. A name that caused some gossip and speculation among the good folks of Castle Rock, Maine, while they waited for opening day. Eleven-year-old Brian Rusk was the first customer and he got just what he wanted, a very rare 1956 Sandy Koufax baseball card. Signed. Cyndi Rose Martin was next. A Lalique vase. A perfect match for her living room decor. Something for everyone. Something you really had to have. And always at a price you could just about afford. The cash price that is. Because there was another price. There always is when your heart's most secret, true desire is for sale.



"A sophisticated literary craftsman . . . his work anatomises . . . the social fabric of small-town American life." ( Observer)

sehr viel Personal unterwegs und wenn man das Prinzip erstmal verstanden hat, was relativ früh der Fall ist, wird die Geschichte extrem langweilig. Dass geheimnisvolle Kraefte am Werk sind, ist bei King ja nicht überraschend, aber hier schwer zu akzeptieren. Ein sehr schwaches Werk.

Pure King

Trepidant. If I only had one word for this book it would be trepidant. It moves quickly, it builds the characters consistently up, there are no loose ends or "cul de sacks". I appreciate the effort from the author in the reading, not professional at times but always authentic. When possible, I like the voice of the writer backing up his/her work.
It is pure King. What you see, is what you get.
