Publisher's Summary

Mile 81 meets "N." in this collaboration between Stephen King and Joe Hill.
As USA Today said of Stephen King's Mile 81: "Park and scream. Could there be any better place to set a horror story than an abandoned rest stop?" In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they've lost one another. The boy's cries are more and more desperate. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.

This was an excellent scary story. It was gory, which just made it that more scary. In Kansas they don't have woods, so stories about getting lost in he woods does not scare anyone. In Kansas they do have tall grass, wheat, sunflower fields, corn, etc. It was good from start to finish, first half and second half.

I like Stephen King, I like Joe Hill and I like King and Hill together. I don't know what else to say.

I've got a fairly strong stomach but...

Any additional comments?

I should've heeded the warnings in other reviews. I'm a Stephen King fan, and didn't expect a lighthearted feel-good story, but this book was just too disturbing to finish (so I can't comment on the ending). It did start off very well and the premise itself was very clever, but about halfway through, I got the kind of sick feeling I imagine I'd get from watching a snuff film.
