The Bazaar of Bad Dreams By: Stephen King EXTRA MINI Reviews For Each Story!

Short Review Summary: 
Another great set of short stories from Stephen King! 

I'm going to do a VERY short review for each story in this collection. Pretty much these are the short notes I made while reading. I thought it would be fun to share these for each story instead of a GIGANTIC review. :) 

Mile 81:
5 Stars

This is a great way to start off a book of short stories! SK can really write creepy cars.

Premium Harmony:
3 Stars

This one is pretty meh. I didn't hate it, but it's nothing that I will remember later.

Batman and Robin Have an Altercation: 
4 Stars

This is a simple, but effective story. I really liked it, but I'm not sure why. HAHA.

The Dune:
5 Stars

Before all of the stories in this book SK says a little something about each. For this one he says that this is one of his favorite endings. I have to agree with him there. The ending to this one is fantastic.

Bad Little Kid: 
5 Stars

Creepy kid for the win! I really like this one and how the story played out.

A Death:
4 Stars

Ooo the surprise in this one is great.

The Bone Church:
3 Stars

Interesting, but weird poem. 

5 Stars

This one is very captivating.

5 Stars

I love unique takes on the afterlife!

5 Stars

I LOVE this one. SK really knows how to come up with ideas that seem wonderful, at first. They never end well though, do they?

Herman Wouk is Still Alive: 
5 Stars

I like this one a lot, even though it is a little depressing. 

Under the Weather:
5 Stars

I love this one and how you know the outcome at the beginning, but it WORKS.

Blockade Billy:
2 Stars

This one wasn't for me. Boring. 

Mister Yummy:
4 Stars

Someone must be thinking about old age and dying a lot, but it sure makes for some good stories!

4 Stars

I enjoyed this poem better than the other one for sure. 

The Little Green God of Agony:
5 Stars

This story is so wacky! I love it. 

That Bus is Another World:
3 Stars

Eh, this one is just okay. I like the idea behind it more than the execution.

3 Stars

I liked this one, but I didn't love it. 

Drunken Fireworks:
4 Stars

Yet another good one!

Summer Thunder:
4 Stars

I'm thrilled that this collection ended with a great story!

Overall I really enjoyed The Bazaar of Bad Dreams. It's no secret that I'm a big King fan and this collection has some magnificent stories. A few of them aren't really for me, but that's okay because there are plenty that I LOVE. I also love the intros from SK before each story. I think that is such a cool idea and I would love more short story collections to do that. 

I recommend The Bazaar of Bad Dreams for fans of Stephen King and short stories.
