If It Bleeds Stephen King Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
From #1 New York Times bestselling author, legendary storyteller, and master of short fiction Stephen King comes an extraordinary collection of four new and compelling novellas—Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, The Life of Chuck, Rat, and the title story If It Bleeds—each pulling you into intriguing and frightening places.
The novella is a form King has returned to over and over again in the course of his amazing career, and many have been made into iconic films, including “The Body” (Stand By Me) and “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption” (Shawshank Redemption). Like Four Past Midnight, Different Seasons, and most recently Full Dark, No Stars, If It Bleeds is a uniquely satisfying collection of longer short fiction by an incomparably gifted writer.

User reviews about this book
Overall I enjoy his stories. I have read all of his book and this one did not disappoint. The only thing I could do without was his constant political opinions on Trump. I got it, you don’t like his opinions but just write your books clown.

The only particular reason I loved this book is because of the first story. Mr. Harrigans phone was both clever and more appealing to a kid. It was amazing, especially all the twists and absolutely flawless. The other three stories not do great, especially anti-trump bias—completely un called for.
Simply for anti trump
All these trumpsters being crybaby’s and giving the bad ratings simply makes me wish to give it a good rating 😂
Nice group of stories. All at a decent length. Don’t know what all the Trump whining is about, there were more jabs at blacks then at Trump...
Anti-Trump bias makes this unreadable.
Amazing storytelling, as always. Notable mention to “The Life of Chuck”, which is written unlike any other story I’ve read from King. It captured me as much now as when I first read “Nightmares & Dreamscapes”.
To those rating low because of politics: that’s sad and you must be new here.
I LOVE King!! I have purchased and read every book multiple times. But these last couple of books have had me rolling my eyes at his jabs to our president. I couldn’t finish this book and I am truly sad about that.
If It Bleeds
4 new great stories from the master himself! No complaints, just great writing as usual from Mr. King. Would definitely recommend!
If it reads...
This is the most enjoyable Stephen King book in years. I really liked all four of the novellas. They could have possibly been scarier, especially the first story, but they are very easy and fun to read. A near return to form.
A delectable tasting menu of the author’s signature brand of horror/Sci-fi / mystery genre
I am a horror junkie but sometimes lack the stamina for Steven King’s full length novels. His short stories are a perfect little satisfying taste of his brilliant, suspenseful & mind bending writing.
