Flight or Fright Reviews
Yeugh—some good stories but they're the minority here.
Did y'all know it was Stephen King's 71st birthday recently? I almost avoided finding out because I muted his name and @StephenKing on Twitter. (But not on Facebook! Damn you, gushing horror friends! Legend has it that if you say his name three times in quick succession... you're in the minority.) I'm an expert Twitter muter—though there is one conundrum I have not yet solved: I've muted "word count", but that's not enough, but I can hardly m ...more
The one by Joe Hill was the star of the collection. Cargo by E Michael Lewis at the beginning wasn't a bad hook, but everything else didn't really...take off.
A random hodgepodge of hit or miss stories spanning 100+ years of storytelling.
Welcome Aboard....or maybe not! It all begins with a scary as hell introduction from KING. Yikes! What a horrific flying experience he had.
As for me, back in the olden days of 1969 on the way to Japan, we briefly stopped in Alaska and slid off the runway all the way to the fence. May not sound it, but it was indeed frightening. And, once on a flight from Los Angeles to Detroit, also in the late 60's, I experienced flying in a horrendous thunderstorm with lightening that seemed to last forever...more
Eh. Definitely not worth the $9.99 I paid for this. A new anthology edited by Stephen King though equals I have to read it though. There were some truly what the hell did I just read reactions to some of the short stories, and a few good grief this is boring. I only really enjoyed four stories out of this collection (gave them five stars), and one of them is a story I am already familiar with. I did give some four stars, but the majority are three stars and below.

mmm, not sure what to say about this one.
I just presumed I would love it, but as we all know, going in with high expectations is usually a death knell. Plus I've recently read a couple of great King short story collections so the bar was set very high.
My reasons for having these high expectations were: I love SK in general, I relish unusual stories in particular and, I work in aviation - it seemed a foregone conclusion.
Well perhaps I am being a bit harsh - I did like quite a few of the ...more
I enjoyed this a lot. As in other anthologies some of the stories were great, some not as much but overall a solid lineup. I was sold as soon as I knew that King and Hill and new stories in it. They did not disappoint.
I received this beauty in the mail today and am very excited to get started on this collection. I absolutely adore the synopsis of this one! I HATE flying with every fiber of my being. Yep. This should be great for my travel anxiety. 😑😯😝😨
