Item Details

Todd Bowden is an apt pupil. Good grades, good family, a paper route. But he is about to meet a different kind of teacher: Mr. Dussander. Todd knows all about Dussander's darl past. The torture. The death. The decades-old manhunt Dussander has escaped to this day. Yet Todd doesn't want to turn him in. Todd wants to know more. Much more. He is about to learn the real meaning of power--and the seductive lure of evil. This acclaimed collection of four novellas by Stephen King also includes "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption" (basis for the Academy Award nominated film The Shawshank Redemption ), "The Body" (inspiration for the motion picture Stand By Me ), and "The Breathing Method."

I read these out of order because I knew that I wasn’t going to like Apt Pupil very much and I wanted to get it over with soonest. I admire the skill of the plot and the psychology of these two twisted souls feeding off of each other, but it was more sickening than enjoyable (I’m hoping that’s what King wanted). The other three stories I liked a lot more. The Breathing Method is more my kind of weird – a spooky tale within the great framework of the “gentlemen’s story club.” I knew that I would love The Body (though I think I like the movie better - sacrilege!) and Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. They have a kind of nostalgia that I love, and I became so attached to the characters.
