Summary

The chilling novella featured in Stephen King's best-selling collection Full Dark, No Stars, 1922 - about a man who succumbs to the violence within - is now available as a stand-alone publication.

I believe there is a man inside every man, a stranger.

So writes Wilfred James in his confession. It's 1922. Wilfred owns 80 acres of farmland in Nebraska that have been in the family for generations. His wife, Arlette, owns an adjoining 100 acres.

But if Arlette carries out her threat to sell her land to a pig butcher, Wilfred will be forced to sell, too. Worse, he'll have to move to the city. But he has a daring plan. It may work if he can persuade his son. 

A powerful tale of betrayal, murder, madness and rats, 1922 is a breathtaking exploration into the dark side of human nature from the great American storyteller Stephen King. It was adapted into a film from Netflix.

Ratsville USA

My first Stephen King read, I enjoyed the story and the inclusion of rats and the way the story was constructed,as I was aware he had a rats complex, maybe, his own childhood home was infested by rats that in itself would be a basis of a good autobiography.

It’s alright. The tv version is better.

A good story and VERY WELL READ. However it doesn’t quite portray the horror you get from watching on tv. On tv you absolutely scare yourself to death. In this production you’re literally sat listening to rats eat someone’s leg and like “oh, that’s the rat eating someone’s leg”. But tame really. On the whole worth a credit but the ending is a bit sudden.
