3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit of a Disappointment
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 December 2018
I was a little disappointed with this story; I have read two of King’s full-length novels, and have written two five-star reviews for them, but In the Tall Grass left a lot to be desired.

It starts well; there is a lot of tension as a brother and sister get out of their car to investigate the cries of a child. It seems as though they have wondered into a nearly field full of long grass. The siblings decide to rescue the child, but as soon as they enter it, they find themselves lost. No matter what they do, they aren’t able to escape the field - or even find each other.

The tension of their confusion is built for about 70% of the novel (which is great), but the last 30% just gets a little... weird. I have always admired King’s ability to evoke fear in his readers without relying on gore and brutality, but I can’t say that about In the Tall Grass. This story is VERY brutal, and to be honest, I think it was a little too much for me (which is saying something). It’s not scary, it’s just gross, and can make you feel a little uncomfortable.

That said, it is only towards the end of the story that this brutality establishes itself; I enjoyed the rest of it quite a lot, and was intrigued about the grass and all of the supernatural elements that are wrapped up in it.

It’s not a bad story, but it’s not King’s best, and you definitely need to be prepared for gore if you fancy giving it a read.
