Book Review – In the Tall Grass (Kindle Single) by Joe Hill and Stephen King

In the Tall Grass (Kindle Single) by Joe Hill and Stephen King

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.

What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.


In the Tall Grass  (Kindle Single) is a new short story by horror legend Stephen King and his son Joe Hill that should carry a warning – DON’T read on full stomach! (I read it after a pleasant lunch of grilled chicken sandwich, and was so sick to my stomach when I got to the end of the story. I was just thankful I hadn’t been eating sardines….)

What can I say about this Kindle single? Well, I definitely don’t see myself reading it again. It starts out great – super creepy – when the brother and sister first hear a kid’s cries for help coming from the field of grass, and they set of in pursuit. Cal and Becky were really likable characters, and I was all tied up in knots worrying about them. And the suspense just ratcheted up the longer they were stuck in the grass looking for the kid (And then each other).

But then, the story suddenly changed direction – I won’t give spoilers – but that’s when I ended up way more grossed out than scared. Pity – I really enjoyed reading it before things turned disgusting.

But then, maybe if you like that type of horror – you’ll probably like this way more than me?


In the Tall Grass (Kindle Single) by Joe Hill and Stephen King (Scribner) is available on Amazon as a Kindle Single.
