Stephen king big driver film
Big Driver by Stephen King
Before I sunk my teeth into BIG DRIVER- I was talking to a Goodreads friend... and she warned me that this may not be the short story for me. I assured her I would go into it forewarned- I do love when a woman gets revenge on a man that is deserving of it.
This book ticked that box for me...but that was the only box it ticked. It started out much stronger than its finish...and in between was kind of hard to take.
Tess Thorne makes a comfortable living writing cozy mysteries- but sometimes a woman cant live on cozy mysteries alone- and a speaking engagement or two is needed. So Tess is delighted when Ramona Norville- a librarian in Chicopee, Massachusetts- gives her a call to do just that.
On her way home- Tess hits a bump in the road...literally, and as luck would have it- a trucker arrives on the scene to come to her aid in no time at all...
...but all luck unfortunately isnt good luck..and soon Tess is fighting for her life.
...and when her ordeal is done- Tess has a decision to make- is she going to be the victim?
...Or is he?
BIG DRIVER is a short story in the anthology FULL DARK, NO STARS- I bought it as an e-book single. Was it worth picking up?? Yes, I am glad I read it. Was it an enjoyable read???...abso-F!#$%-lutely NOT.
