Needful Things - Stephen King - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Needful Things:

A town succumbs to the allure of trifles, trinkets, and token payments.

My favorite Stephen King quote from the book

"Everyone loves something for nothing...even if it costs everything."

Questions to ponder while reading Needful Things:

What do you really want?

What do you do to get it?

My review of the book:

Buyer beware!

A dark tale about wants.

Why does he always put something wonky in his books? I didn't get the spider.
