    What I learned from Night Shift It ain t easy to quit smoking.That I know what you need.That I am the doorway.That he walks behind the rows.That sometimes they come back.It ain t over in Salem s Lot.Don t drink bad beer Get off your ass and mow your own lawn, goddammit.

    Many readers consider this book to be one of Stephen King s most popular short story collections, and I can t disagree with that opinion mostly because it s only the second anthology by King I have read so far Many original horror stories are included in this collection, with most of them having been adapted into classic horror movies like Children of the Corn , Graveyard Shift or The Mangler In its entirety, however, I consider Night Shift to be a rather weak collection of short st Many readers consider this book to be one of Stephen King s most popular short story collections, and I can t disagree with that opinion mostly because it s only the second anthology by King I have read so far Many original horror stories are included in this collection, with most of them having been adapted into classic horror movies like Children of the Corn , Graveyard Shift or The Mangler In its entirety, however, I consider Night Shift to be a rather weak collection of short stories, and critics will certainly find affirmation that King is also able to write true crap But on the other hand, some of the best short stories which might be discovered in King s writing universe are included here.In the following, I will list a short overview on the particular stories with my opinions on them Because well, it s impossible f...
