Needful Things
Needful Things | Stephen King
YOU’VE BEEN HERE BEFORE…. A wonderful new store has opened in the little town of Castle Rock, Maine. Whatever your heart’s secret desire—sexual pleasure, wealth, power, or even more precious things—it’s for sale. And even though every item has a nerve-shattering price, the owner is always ready to make a bargain. In this chilling novel by one of the most potent imaginations of our time, evil is on a shopping spree and out to scare you witless.

One last trip to Castle Rock. A new shop owner comes to town selling just what the customer wants. The prices are fair until the consequences of those prices begin to unfold turning Castle Rock into chaos. Just who is Leland Gaunt and what is it about Needful Things?

One of my favorite things about some of Stephen King‘s stories is when he mentions his other stories that have taken place nearby the central town of the book.

Top left 92 with Gary, right with son 95 and undergraduate graduation day (with sister) 97.
Hardly any pics of me in the 90s, generally not a happy period of my life! These are definitely the headlines!
King books were my still my thing 😁

RadicalReader What wonderful photo hoping you have many more marvelous memories forevermore you‘re an incredible individual and deserve nothing but happiness and success 3mo
Cinfhen I‘m loving blonde Trish but I think dark hair suits you better!! The 90s were not my glory years either. Stressful days and my weight was all over the place. ( probably why I have so few photos) 3mo
Cinfhen Gary is looking good, but I think he aged really well 3mo

TrishB @RadicalReader thank you 😘 a lovely thing to say! 3mo
TrishB @Cinfhen definitely dark! The decade started crap and ended well. In 91 my Dad died suddenly, I lost a baby at 6 months pregnant and my 3 yr old nephew had cancer (glad to say he‘s fine and in his 30s now) it sort of set the tone for the rest of the decade! But I‘m still here, happy and maybe stronger 🤷‍♀️ 3mo
Tanisha_A Love love these pictures! 3mo
erzascarletbookgasm Yup, dark hair Trish rocks! Beautiful pics. ❤️ 3mo
BarbaraBB Dark days indeed. I am happy they passed ♥️. Great pics nevertheless! 3mo
Cinfhen Hard to relive those sadder and harder days. Thank God your nephew is well and one never gets over the loss of a child, whether a fetus or not. I had 4 miscarriages in the 90‘s but most were never past 14 weeks 😢 3mo

Cathythoughts Beautiful pics Trish ... I‘m sorry this 90‘s we‘re so hard. Better days ahead... ♥️. You look great blonde or brunette 😘 3mo
Kalalalatja Sorry you had to go through those tough times, both you and @Cinfhen ❤️ but the pics are great, and I would never have guessed your natural hair colour is blond 😄 3mo
Caroline2 I‘m so sorry to hear you went through all that Trish. 😢 I‘m glad to hear your nephew is doing well and your son was an adorable baby. Loving the blonde!! I didn‘t recognise you!!! 3mo

I tried to read the ebook version of this, but its so hard for me to read a book without physically flipping the pages. I made it to page 32, and I'm going to pick up there.

I checked for this book at least three times at the library and it was not there. When I called yesterday to request an interlibrary loan I was told they had three copies! I went today and there were 2. 🙌 one is mine. Reread.

"Enter freely, and leave some of the happiness you bring!"

A slow-burn story that focuses heavily on characters. So many characters! Although not my favourite, but it's still worth reading. It's still creepy ...

Rating: 3.5?

I don't read a lot of Stephen King type #horror but when someone was giving this book away for free at my old job, I thought I'd take it and give it a try sometime. It's been a few years and I still haven't read it.

I love Castle Rock. I love getting to know the town and all of its people. This book is extremely well plotted and engaging. This is my second time reading this book and I get attached to the characters and then it all goes crazy. It's one of Stephen King's best. Read this year for October's book club pick.

Brian thought of her dark blue eyes, her long dancer‘s legs, and felt the same glum amazement he always felt when he realized that, come January, she intended to change Sally Ratcliffe, which was lovely, to Sally Pratt, which sounded to Brian like a fat lady falling down a short hard flight of stairs. #Thriller #Horror #StephenKing
