Ç Cycle of the Werewolf Ñ Download by ã Stephen King Despite its short length I honestly think this book has clawed its way into my top five King stories I was sucked into the story right from the very first page and I couldn t turn the pages fast enough to find out what would happen and before I knew it, I was already finished it and completely head over heels in love Something about this story just captured my interest instantly and cemented itself as a new favourite It s got great characters, suspense, horror, monsters and pretty much everything else you could possibly ask for And the illustrations are just STUNNING and really bring this fabulous story to life Under the light of the full moon, a werewolf stalks the people of Tarker s Mills Can anyone stop The Cycle of the Werewolf I first read this in high school, younger than my dog is now It took me a few chapters to realize that Silver Bullet was based on it Anyway, I found it for a buck at a yard sale a couple years ago and decided I could use a reread.
Like Kemper told me while I was reading it, Cycle of the Werewolf is essentially a Stephen King calendar Each chapter is a month out of the year the werewolf is stalking the town, accompanied by one or of Bernie Wrightson s fantastic illustrations Stephen King s writing is as crisp as ever Also, he wrote this during his prime so it isn t bloated or over written The First Scream Came From The Snowbound Railwayman Who Felt The Fangs Ripping At His Throat The Next Month There Was A Scream Of Ecstatic Agony From The Woman Attacked In Her Snug Bedroom Now Scenes Of Unbelieving Horror Come Each Time The Full Moon Shines On The Isolated Maine Town Of Tarker Mills No One Knows Who Will Be Attacked Next But One Thing Is Sure When The Moon Grows Fat, A Paralyzing Fear Sweeps Through Tarker Mills For Snarls That Sound Like Human Words Can Be Heard Whining Through The Wind And All Around Are The Footprints Of A Monster Whose Hunger Cannot Be Sated Cycle of the Werewolf Welcome to the small town of Tarker s Mill in Maine It s a night in January and a snow blizzardhas choked the sky with snowandthe wind rises to a shrill screamWhat happens in such an ambience Terror attack A bid bad werewolf brutalizes a defenseless man.
Stephen King s Cycle of the Werewolf is a long story and not a full length novel Anyways, the werewolf would terrorize the small town for a whole year Each chapter corresponds to a month.
The hero of the story, Marty Coslaw, is a ten year old boy Unfortunately, he is wheel chair bound However, that does not stop him from indulging in some pretty daring activities He has a somewhat strained relationship with his thirteen year old sister, Kate I felt there was scope for developi I picked this novella up in college, and shortly thereafter the movie SILVER BULLET was made from the story Cycle of the Werewolf is sort of an under the radar King book Probably not the most talked about, but I think it s a hidden treasure I love the author s monthly chronicling of the monster s evolution in the small town of Tarker s Mills, Maine Part of what makes this a 5 star book for me were the superb illustrations, which are similar to those found in CREEPSHOW This is a terrific tale by one of the masters.
I love werewolves and I cannot lie lol No idea why werewolves, of all mystical creatures, are what I love so much Maybe it s the animal aspect But I ve always loved tales about them so when I heard that the King of Horror had written a story about a werewolf, of course I had to read it.
We re in Tarker s Mills, Maine, in 1984 The book is divided into 12 chapters, each depicting the events or one specific event in the respective month of the year So we start in January and come full circle by the end of the book.
In between, we get winter snows, blizzards, downpours, sunshine, kite fyling, fireworks, and slaughter Oh, so much glorious slaughter This beast really is hungry for the thrill of the hunt as much as th This is a really good book It was also adapted into a film called Silver Bullet starring Gary Busey I enjoyed both.
Fun, fast, and frightening Great pictures that make the story come to life Terrific tale of a town terrified once every month and even though it s short it has characters that grab you and make you care, as you read of each full moon rising It was first meant to be a calendar, one short story for each month it would have been kind of neat, reminding you to be on the lookout that one night every month , so the words are sparse Somewhere along the way that idea was abandoned for some reason perhaps King has an issue with brevity and I m supposing words were added to fill it out a bit In my opinion, he could should have gone whole hog with this and added much to it about the small town and characters, because King knows how to create a really great Cycle of Werewolf by Stephen King is NOT about a poor Werewolf searching for his stolen bicycle, without which he will not be able to stalk his victims during the full moon.
No, seriously it s not Such a confusing title The cycle here refers to a year of the gruesome werewolf attacks from January to December 1983, in a small town called Tarker s Mill All murders took place during the full moon and they were committed by a classic murderous WerewolfI got to use the word Classic because the modern Werewolves looks like overgrown foxes.
This is a rather short novel To tell the truth, many of King s novellas are lengthier than this novel The story is divided into 12 chaptersJanuary to December , and each chapter follows our Werewolf s hunt for prey At the beginning, I was quite discouraged by the first three chapters as they lacked the usual thrills offered by Kin
