Sometimes collections like this can be hard to judge. Most of the time the writer will have ups and downs, with one story that may entice to one audience and another which entices to a different one. Different Seasons, however, succeeds to deliver a good body of work that should appeal to just about everybody.
To be clear on the content of the book, this is actually 2 tales and 2 short stories–both Rita Hayworth and the Shaw shank Redemption and The Breathing Method are both on same level with such masterpieces as “Bartleby the Scrivener.” The plot of the book is perhaps a little hokey–the stories trails the seasonal theme–but ultimately that creative touch is inapt to the real appreciation of the book, at worst, and appealing, at best.
The stories themselves are outstanding, a fact proved to by the production of 3 major films based on the first 3 of these pieces. The first presented is Rita Hayworth and the Shaw shank Redemption, and of them all, it’s most likely the best on the whole. The characters in the story are well developed and, all things considered, it’s really just a good story with a positive message that you might not be used to seeing in Stephen King’s writing. 2nd is Apt Pupil, which is more evocative of King’s usual subject matter and tone, but still manages to provide an absorbing and enthralling view into the nature of evil and the parasitic relationship that a man can develop with it. The Body is possibly the most engaging of all the stories in the book, even if it is the roughest in terms of production. With a perceptive, old-man-on-the-porch-in-the-sunshine voice, King is able to narrate this tale of the loss of innocence and the way into adulthood. The last tale is actually evocative of other, older authors than King. The Breathing Method uses numerous old tricks of such super stars as Melville and Hawthorne in its presentation, and manages to wrap an amusing story around a symbolic examination of the writing process.
Taken as a whole, this collection is truly one of the most outstanding efforts that King has ever put forth. While he still does incline to bloat a little in the middle 2 stories, all of them manage to create an ether exclusively their own and to take the mind of a reader away to another place, which, as King says in the afterword, is his first and highest goal. While little new ground is broken in the themes King examines, the themes themselves all still bear examination. His storytelling is at its peak here, and this is a book that all readers should pick up at one point or another. A truly fantastic book.
