Are you fond of a deeply disturbing psychological thriller? I definitely am, and that’s the only reason I’m mentioning Stephen King’s new best seller, You Like It Darker. His brilliant insight into story telling is to make everyday life extraordinary by invoking the famous witch’s line from Macbeth. “By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes” All it needs is an everyday suburban family, and then metaphorically speaking, Stephen pricks his writer’s thumb and the wickedness comes. Over the years it’s been Pennywise the clown in It. And in the Shining it was a crazy, axe wielding, Dad played in the movie by Jack Nicholson. Now, In You Like You Like It Darker it’s an alligator, an alcoholic serial killer and lot more. So, check it out it’s great fun, definitely disturbing, and I’d love to hear what you think.
