Four Past Midnight is significant in my journey because it was the first title to be released in the 1990s.
The first novella - of the four included in this book - is The Langoliers. I finished reading shortly before writing this post.
It's a horror/thriller story about passengers on a plane who wake up to find most of their co-passengers, and even the flight crew, have vanished.
As I've written in previous posts about King, my favourite novel of his - so far(?) - is The Stand. I kind of had The Stand vibes reading this one because it focuses on a group of mismatched characters forced to team up to survive in a changed world.
I give it a strong three to four stars. My final verdict will depend on how I find the rest of the book.
I haven't read what the remaining three stories are in the collection, if they're as good as The Langoliers then it could be another four star title.
