Fairy Tale

Fairy Tale by Stephen King Book Summary

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.”

Fantastic read although to be fair, I’m a sucker for King. I’m a constant reader. This one somehow felt different. It was great and I devoured the entire book in two days but it just felt like less King than normal. No complaints. Just a little less “king flavor” in my meal this time.

I bought this as an ebook and only received 56 pages, not the entire novel. Why is this happening?

IT’S AMAZING! You knew I couldn’t wait so I downloaded it at midnight - will pick up reserve copy today at the bookstore - the first couple chapters give you the background and move a little slow but then it takes off - like a roller coaster ride - you buckle in and go up the first climb slowly clacking along and after you reach the top away you go without a break until the end - it’s about a boy, and a dog, and a neighbor and something you think you’ve seen before but you really haven’t - that’s this book! Highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
