Book Review: The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams, part 2

The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams by Stephen King, part 2
More un-thrilling stories.

Morality
A woman helps a man commit a sin. Surprisingly bad.

Afterlife
Yet another bleak view of what comes after. This chunters.

Ur
Product placement for Amazon’s Kindle. It’s okay but could be better.

Herman Wouk Is Still Alive
A predictable dull story based on a real-life tragedy.

Under The Weather
Already read this okay story.

Blockade Billy
A baseball story. WTF is King’s obsession with this sport? I don’t understand a word of the lingo and neither do I consider this acceptable.

Mister Yummy
A subclinical tale of a death avatar

Tommy
Another bad poem.

The Little Green God Of Agony
I’ve already read this good story elsewhere.

That Bus Is Another World
Not street cast is this tale that borrows from Agatha Christie.

Obits
A man writes nasty obits for a journalism website in the Age of the Internet. But his obits make people die. Good.

Best Line:
“Emasculated Toad.”

Drunken Fireworks
Neighbours get into fireworks arms race. Good.

Summer Thunder
A man and his dog have survived the end of the world. Good.

Best Line:
“Hysterical conversion.”
