Extra Book - In The Tall Grass

Book: In The Tall Grass
Author: Stephen King
Pages: 62

This is my 45th book of the year.

I know - I am reading a lot of "extra" books in a row here.  And off challenge.  Problem is with quarantine is that I cannot get books right now.  Amazon pick up is in Germany and we cannot get there until June 15th.  So I have read them all that I have on my shelf.  The rest will have to wait.

This incredibly short book was recently turned into a movie on Netflix, so I decided to check it out.  It only took an hour to read.  It starts off with a sister and brother who hear a boy crying for help.  They cannot see him in the tall grass, but head in to search for him.  Within a few minutes they have lost their way and cannot find the little boy or each other.  They spend the book trying to find their way out of the grass - coming in contact with the supernatural that makes them realize they may never escape.

This book was fine.  So short it was hard to get really invested in it.  The story is a good idea, and I feel like they could have kept going to make it truly terrifying.  I am anxious to watch the show to see how it relates.
