Home - Needful Things MarketNeedful Things Market | A treasure trove of books and much, much more!If there's one thing that Stephen King understands above all others — above spider demons and psychic communication lines and psychopathic fans — it's addiction. He's shown that again and again, with characters demonstrating that what they need isn't always the same as what they want. In The Shining, Jack wants to write, to look after his family; he needs the drink that he's trying to escape from. In Misery, Annie's wants — her basic desires — turn nasty when they become needs as, frankly, do Paul's. It's a recurring theme. So when King calls a novel Needful Things, you know he's not entering the territory of desire with anything resembling a soft touch. In lovely, sunny, not-at-all terrifying Castle Rock, the titular shop is opened by Leland Gaunt.
Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore? ~ Henry Ward Beecher
ALL those things you covet AND Mr. SOON after the many well-defined characters make their purchases The ending is definitely explosive, but not particularly frightening Gaunt likes to collect. Fast read for pages. Enjoyed the macabre journey!

For the second instalment of my Stephen King book club, my friends and I read Needful Things before watching the movie adaptation and once again, we discovered exactly why he is the one true King of horror. So, what is it all about? The shop sells curios and antiques which appear to be a steal but inevitably come with a heavy price. Intriguing right? First of all, the premise is wonderful. I love the idea of the Devil being bored and going place to place selling cursed goodies to unsuspecting punters. These items hold no significance to anyone other than the intended victim as each item is chosen specifically based on that individuals NEED.
