My non-fiction relaxation book of the month for August 2008 is On Writing by Stephen King.
I am an avid fan of Stephen King's written works. His ability to create these strange and scary worlds always keeps me in a spell from the first page up until his very last word.
This is what prompted me to pick this non-fiction book about his perspective on writing.
What surprised me greatly was his sense of humour in depicting the main events of his life. Through his initial struggles as a writer, to alcohol problems and an accident that almost killed him, you can also discover what made him such a wonderful writer.
The book also contains a second part, which contains Steve's practical advice for writers out there. A wonderful read for all Stephen King's fans.
My fiction relaxation book of the month for August 2008 is the Mist by Stephen King.
After reading his autobiography/writing guide discussed above, I couldn't help but pick up another one of Stephen King's books. Although he has written many lengthy novels, I selected a shorter book: a novella called:Mist. This story has also made it into a movie.
The main character, Dave, is enjoying life by the lake with his wife Steph and son Bill when all of a sudden the weather turns bad. Really bad. A freak thunderstorm is followed by thick fog, which is definitely not your typical fog.
Great and quick read for an afternoon at the beach. Beware of the fog, though...
