Fairy Tale | Stephen King
110 posts | 29 read | 16 reading | 68 to read
Legendary storyteller Stephen King goes into the deepest well of his imagination in this spellbinding novel about a seventeen-year-old boy who inherits the keys to a parallel world where good and evil are at war, and the stakes could not be higher--for that world or ours. Charlie Reade looks like a regular high school kid, great at baseball and football, a decent student. But he carries a heavy load. His mom was killed in a hit-and-run accident when he was ten, and grief drove his dad to drink. Charlie learned how to take care of himself--and his dad. When Charlie is seventeen, he meets a dog named Radar and her aging master, Howard Bowditch, a recluse in a big house at the top of a big hill, with a locked shed in the backyard. Sometimes strange sounds emerge from it. Charlie starts doing jobs for Mr. Bowditch and loses his heart to Radar. Then, when Bowditch dies, he leaves Charlie a cassette tape telling a story no one would believe. What Bowditch knows, and has kept secret all his long life, is that inside the shed is a portal to another world. King's storytelling in Fairy Tale soars. This is a magnificent and terrifying tale in which good is pitted against overwhelming evil, and a heroic boy--and his dog--must lead the battle. Early in the Pandemic, King asked himself: "What could you write that would make you happy?" "As if my imagination had been waiting for the question to be asked, I saw a vast deserted city--deserted but alive. I saw the empty streets, the haunted buildings, a gargoyle head lying overturned in the street. I saw smashed statues (of what I didn't know, but I eventually found out). I saw a huge, sprawling palace with glass towers so high their tips pierced the clouds. Those images released the story I wanted to tell."

#UnpopularOpinion

I didn't really like it. I might have bailed after the first third, but it was a #buddyread.

Anyway, I think the first third is good, and the Fairy Tale part was predictable. A YA novel with a bit of an edge. 😬

This is probably the only book I'll have finished for #20in4 , but it is a big one. I love a good book with a lovable dog as a central character. This really felt like two different books. One of a boy taking care of an injured, old codger, and then it turns into a dark otherworldly adventure. I had to pause to make the transition, but once I did I was enveloped by the characters.

@Andrew65

One discrepancy noted below 👇

Eggbeater The book is supposed to take place in 2014, yet it references the killings if Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, which didn't happen until the summer of 2016. I'm sure because it was a nightmare summer that I will never forget. 24h

I spent most of today reading Fairy Tale and am about halfway through. I‘m really liking it, but I‘m taking a break from it to read Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues. When I‘m ready to wind down for the night, I‘ll start listening to A Murder for the Books. It‘s been my nighttime listening for a bit now, so I only have 2 hours left.

Loved this Stephen King book, you can never beat a book about a boy and his 🐕. Also really enjoyed how the references to fairy tales were woven in so seamlessly. Also reminded me how much I enjoyed his Eyes of the Dragon.

Stephen King does a really good job of reeling Constant Reader in with this one. The beginning pulls on your heartstrings. The next 200 or so pages are somewhat slow. The last 250 fly by as the story really hits its stride. I really enjoyed the unique cast of characters, especially some of the Deep Maleen gang. Overall, this is a good fantasy tale. King succeeds in telling a Fairy Tale while writing about fairy tales.

I much prefer his horror novels so I approached this fantasy book with some trepidation. Then I remembered how much I loved The Talisman and 11/22/63. As far as I'm concerned this book ranks right up there with them.
Could not put it down and didn't want it to end.
Once again King transports the Constant Reader into two parallel worlds both rife with mystery, danger and magic.
And yes, I cried in the end and then took my elderly dog for a walk.

1st half was 4 ⭐️, 2nd half was 3 for me. I know to expect to saunter with King on a somewhat aimless path. I know it‘s more about the journey than destination. But this destination should have been travelled in a trilogy. An ode to fables & fairy tales & would entertain fans of the epic journey trope, but y‘all. It was looong. The imagery was fantastical, the main character very likeable, & the dog precious. Loved the old curmudgeon too. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
