Flight or Fright Reviews
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
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.
"Cargo" by E. Michael Lewis (3 ...more
A wonderful collection of creepy, thrilling, fascinating stories. If like me, you already find flying a precarious challenge, these stories are ready-made for you. They will get your heart racing, and you will be soon flipping pages rapidly, hoping for a smooth landing. The best pieces are "Cargo"; "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet"; "Two Minutes Forty-Five Seconds"; "You Are Released"; "The Turbulence Expert" and "Falling."
Once upon a time in a faraway decade there existed short story collections that would knock your socks off. If the book contained fourteen stories then at least eight of them would be considered decent and four of them would send you on a mission to find better fitting socks. Then one day the world got greedy and it was decided that everything was worth publishing and quantity became more valuable than quality. Readers found themselves beginning to doubt the authors they once trusted, not unders ...more
Stephen King has spent his life frightening his readers, but what scares the world's best selling horror writer ? Flying it seems. So here, appropriatley, is a collection of short stories set around the world of flight.
It's a mixed bag of quality, but there are some real gems to be found here. Richard Matheson's Nightmare At 20,000 Feet has always been a favourite story of mine, as has the classic Twilight Zone episode it inspired. Arthur Conan Doyle's The Horror Of The Heights is a wonderful ta ...more
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
Did love this one! Some of the stories were a little “eh” but a lot of them were really good. Especially in the second half of the book! No surprise but Joe Hill, Roald Dahl, Stephen King, and Bev Vincent were fantastic! With a special nod to Peter Tremayne who I had heard of before but loved his locked room murder mystery on a plane!
