Stephen King has always been one of my favorite authors. When I saw there was a collection of novellas that I hadn't read, Different Seasons by Stephen King, I knew that would be the next book on my to-read list. It is a hypnotic collection that is bound together by the changing of seasons, each taking on the theme of a journey with strikingly different tones and characters.
As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for Unsolved is:
"This gripping collection begins with “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption,” in which an unjustly imprisoned convict seeks a strange and startling revenge—the basis for the Best Picture Academy Award-nominee The Shawshank Redemption.
Next is “Apt Pupil,” the inspiration for the film of the same name about top high school student Todd Bowden and his obsession with the dark and deadly past of an older man in town.
In “The Body,” four rambunctious young boys plunge through the façade of a small town and come face-to-face with life, death, and intimations of their own mortality. This novella became the movie Stand By Me.
Finally, a disgraced woman is determined to triumph over death in “The Breathing Method.”
“The wondrous readability of his work, as well as the instant sense of communication with his characters, are what make Stephen King the consummate storyteller that he is,” hailed the Houston Chronicle about Different Seasons."
