The kids are not alright: Stephen King’s “Children of the Corn”

Children of the Corn (Kindle Single) (A Vintage Short)Children of the Corn (Kindle Single) by Stephen King

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As someone who is constantly referring to my enemies as “The Children of the Corn”, I thought it was time to actually read the story. The story accomplishes exactly what short story is supposed to do: throw you into the middle of a conflict and amplify it. I don’t know if it’s because I had a vague idea of what the story was about going into it, but I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through. The ending was the icing on the cake. If you liked The Legend of Sleepy Hollow you’ll definitely love this.
