      Remember that hope is a good thing, Red, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption is subtitled Hope Springs Eternal and that perfectly sums up the soul of his book It s hope that keeps you going even after everything horrible that you can ever imagine has already happened to you, even after life has knocked you down over and over again, even after there seems to be nothing left Hope is the last thing to die, they say Andy Dufresne has taken [...]

      Prison ain t no fairy tales Almost everything that could be possibly said about it has been said What makes this book different is the message it conveys one of eternal hope I was and am profoundly moved by this simple and eloquent depiction of hope, friendship, and redemption The story begins with the trial of a young banker, Andy Dufresne, victimized by circumstantial evidence, resulting in a conviction for the murder of his wife and her lover After a quick conviction, Andy finds himself servi [...]

      Usually, I m struggling with trying to review my favorite books, because apart from expressions like awesome , mind blowing or must read , not too much can be said about stories like these Perhaps this is one of the reasons why I tend to enjoy writing snarky reviews of books I disliked way than trying to compose a decent review on a story I loved and want everyone else to read as well Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption is one of them I have to admit, I am a huge fan of prison stories and th [...]

      This is one of my favorite movies and I watch it anytime it s rerun on tv I ve vowed to read Stephen King because if you skip those of the horror genre, his other books are such wonderful, human stories Having recently been in on some discussions of another prison book, The Enchanted, I couldn t help but compare the two books as I read along I love both books, with their similarities and dissimilarities but Shawshank offers such hope and redemption I mean it is right there in the title , that I [...]

      Anyone driving north on Rte 3 down in Massachusetts this morning may have passed a girl driving an SUV, one hand covering her mouth, tears pouring down her face and neck They may have wondered in passing if she was having a rough morning or had received some bad newsbut would anyone ever guess that she was in throes of this cathartic sobfest courtesy of Stephen King and the beautiful final passages of The Shawshank Redemption Probably not.I cannot believe I have never read this Actually, I liste [...]

    8. Mark on said:

      One of the best set of novella length stories ever put together Period For anyone out there who accuses King of not beinjg able to write well, this set should end that argument.Shawshank Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption is a masterpiece A streamlined cast of characters and clever telling of the story using the narrator as a main character, only to shift into first person to finish the story with expectant yet unresolved hope.Apt Pupil Scary Really spooky stuff Not so much for the blood [...]

    9. Kandice on said:

      This is such a wonderful story It s the Hope Springs Eternal portion of Different Seasons That sounds ridiculous on the surface because, it is after all, about a man wrongfully convicted of a double homicide and then incarcerated for decades, but somehow King infuses each page with hope Even the pages that talk about lining your underwear with toilet paper because you ve been raped Any writer that can do that is a magician and a genius in my opinion

    10. April on said:

      I am willing to bet the majority of people reading this review have already seen the film version of The Shawshank Redemption If you have not seen the movie, stop reading my review and go watch the film It is amazing I have recently discovered the free audio books on the library Thank you tax dollars The Shawshank Redemption by Stephen King is a relatively short book It is also a short audio book, only 3 cassettes my POS car has a tape deck Frank Muller narrates Stephen King s tale of prison lif [...]

      Well you weren t writing about yourself, I hear someone in the peanut gallery saying You were writing about Andy Dufresne You re nothing but a minor character in your own story But you know, that s just not so It s all about me, every damned word of it Andy was the part of me they could never lock up, the part of me that will rejoice when the gates finally open for me and I walk out in my cheap suit with my twenty dollars of mad money in my pocket That part of me will rejoice no matter how old a [...]

      Every time I Saw the movie, it would give entirely new perspective from which I could continuously break the old self and entrench the new Having seen the movie no less that ten times, I detected that, amazingly, something fresh would preceed to emerge all the time That could be something we call Classic.There could be some reasons that I d rather call it a shape who I will be ,but still, I could not exactly tell what the reasons were The perceptions would evolve with the age The movie and the b [...]

      I can t believe it took me this long to discover this novella, especially since The Shawshank Redemption is my all time favorite movie Hearing the story from Red s gentle and detailed perspective was intriguing Red has a great sense of humor throughout the book He tells the story in a way that allows you to see the passing of time This is not as evident in the movie version Although short, this book gives the reader something to hope for in their own life I also loved the peek into the prison wo [...]

      ExcellentI listened to the audio and it was an outstanding experience.I highly recommend 5 Stars

      This is not a review for the entire collection, Different Seasons I intend to read it at some point, but when I came across this audiobook I couldn t pass it up.The enduring fame of Shawshank is in large part thanks to the film I ve found many people are surprised to hear that Stephen King wrote it I m guessing these are the same people that believe he s just a horror writer, and here you can almost hear the strained twang of elitism in the voice But sorry, Charlie, Uncle Steve has a bag and it [...]

      One of the few books in history that was actually as good as its on screen counterpart, although how they managed to squeeze so much screen time out of such a short story still amazes me I originally read this book when I was 16, missing my school prom to finish it and I loved it then as I love it now The true mark of a good story is one that can be told time and time again without you ever realising that you have read it before This is certainly one of those great stories, from an equally great [...]

    17. Ashish Iyer on said:

      I hadn t read a truly frightening book of his Yes, King s novels are disturbing, but not scary A truly powerful yet disturbing account of an injustice law system, and the effects it has on a young man s life Although imprisoned unjustly, he doesn t complain it is not in his character Instead, he decides to fight the system not with his fists, with his mind He succeeds If you liked the movie, you will not be dissapointed in the moody, honest and bold novel But in the sad case when you haven t see [...]

    18. Donna on said:

      I liked this It was probably 3 stars for me, but just because I loved the writing, I will add an extra star I love Stephen King s writing His characters are richly drawn There is so much vivid detail that makes them leap from the page I always love that There is always a special emphasis on the emotions as well These details didn t just apply to the characters, but they were also poured into the setting so that you could truly see it.

    19. Tatevik on said:

      It turns out I like Stephen King s writing when the story is not filled with supernatural and horror, well except for Green Mile Looking forward to finding books like this written by him.
