classic King style story, keeps you on the edge of your seat. ( )

Something of a conventional King, replete with terrible stereotypes (the "latter-day hippies"), but gripping in how scary a sunny day and some tall grass can be. Also rather unsettling, in the typical horror scenario, in how it advises strongly against ever being "a good Samaritan." Still, I've liked some of King's other stuff, and I have to admit that I'm curious about the upcoming sequel to "The Shining," entitled "Doctor Sleep." There's a preview in this edition... ( )

Wow, that was gruesome! Classic King! A brother and sister, driving across country, stop and hear a child calling for help from the tall grass. They go in and... well, that's when the "fun" starts! Creepy, terrifying, and disturbing, as only Stephen King, and son, can! Not for the faint of heart! ( )

Good little short story, classic King story.

Reminiscent of Children of The Corn and Scott Smith's novel The Ruins. Don't eat while reading this one. ( )

Book description
In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they’ve lost one another. The boy’s cries are more and more desperate.
