Review: The Body by Stephen King (Spoiler-Free)

I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, did you? Stephen King never disappoints. Even though this is a short story, I felt like I knew the characters just as well as I would have in one of King's novels, and better than some characters in other authors' novels. At the heart of this novella lies a story of youth. A story that can only occur when one is a child. A story that can never be relived. There is an adventurous sense of wonder within the pages of this book, and it is one that no adult can ever achieve naturally. Only four kids would get bored one day and ask, "You guys wanna see a dead body?" This is a tale of friendship, innocence, heartbreak, and reality. It is not one to be missed.

Song I was reminded of while reading: Run For Cover
