    For all of those who keep insisting that Stephen King is a literary equivalent of Big Mac and fries, writing in the comfortable confines of the frequently despised genre please take a look at The Body The Fall from Innocence, which is much familiar to public in the quite faithful adaptation by Rob Reiner Stand by Me. It s not King s trademark horror it is actually free of the constraints of any so called genre It is a coming of age character study novella set in 1960 Maine where monsters are not hiding behind bushes but instead live in the hearts of people the setting and themes at which King excels This is a story of four boys on the brink of adolescence the last moments of childhood told with occasional almost Bradbury esque nostalgia but with the rose tinted glasses mercilessly torn off. The blue collar childhood in a small Maine town in 1960 is not a place of magic and wonder these boys are no strangers to abandonment and abuse and prejudice Hot tempered and volatile Teddy Duchamp has been physically mutilated by his mentally ill father whom he still worships Childish and not too bright Vern Tessio lives in fear of his brother Gordie Lachance, whose adult writer self is telling us this story, is little but a stranger to his parents who never got over the death of his older brother Smart and tough Chris Chambers, a kid from a family that supplies Castle Rock with alcoholics and juvenile delinquents, is being seriously abused by his father and is seen as a worthless and even dangerous person because of his family Chris didn t talk much about his dad, but we all knew he hated him like poison Chris was marked up every two weeks or so, bruises on his cheeks and neck or one eye swelled up and as colorful as a sunset, and once he came to school with a big clumsy bandage on the back of his head Other times he never got to school at all His mom would call him in sick because he was too lamed up to come in Chris was smart, really smart, but he played truant a lot, and Mr Halliburton, the town truant officer, was always showing up at Chris s house, driving his old black Chevrolet with the NO RIDERS sticker in the corner of the windshield If Chris was being truant and Bertie as we called him always behind his back, of course caught him, he would haul him back to school and see that Chris got detention for a week But if Bertie found out that Chris was home because his father had beaten the shit out of him, Bertie just went away and didn t say boo to a cuckoo bird It never occurred to me to question this set of priorities until about twenty years later. But childhood, even though not at all sheltered, still gives them something of a shield against the world that sense of invulnerability that only the young children have, the love for adventure, and the protection of sincere and lighthearted friendship Everything was there and around us We knew exactly who we were and exactly where we were going It was grand. But we meet them right at the time when they are about to leave the protection of childhood behind them, when in the miserably hot summer of 1960 they set out on a trip to find a body of a boy who disappeared in the woods a trip that makes at least two of them go through quite significant emotional turmoil and reevaluate their priorities and see the strengthening of one friendship while the others fall apart as the realization sets in that there is to friendship than just fun and leisure This is a trip that uncovers both the steel and the vulnerability in the characters of Chris and Gordie, and shoves them from the haven of childhood into the world where things take work and sacrifice and pain, the world that is often cruel and cynical and unavoidable But he said Your friends drag you down, Gordie Don t you know that Your friends do They re like drowning guys that are holding onto your legs You can t save them You can only drown with them. This is a scary realization when you are young that your friends are not good for you I remember getting that feeling at around twelve, the age the boys in this book are, and I remember how unsettling that realization was At that time it feels like friendships are forever, and that things that connect you to other people are there to stay and realizing how easy and even necessary it can be to break those bonds is quite unsettling You always know the truth, because when you cut yourself or someone else with it, there s always a bloody show. And some of this is present here but on the other hand we are also treated to the strengthening of the true friendship between Gordie and Chris Gordie, a kid who is emotionally neglected by his family, acutely feels the sincerity and kindness that Chris brings into the world, despite his tough origins Chris, the center of this ragtag group, is grown up beyond his years, and has some hard earned wisdom for his twelve years of age, sprinkled with a bit of pain and bitterness but grounded in common sense But it was only survival We were clinging to each other in deep water I ve explained about Chris, I think my reasons for clinging to him were less definable His desire to get away from Castle Rock and out of the mill s shadow seemed to me to be my best part, and I could not just leave him to sink or swim on his own If he had drowned, that part of me would have drowned with him, I think. I love the narrative voice of this story the narration by a young but accomplished writer Gordon Lachance, bringing the perspective that the few decades that have passed since that summer of 1960 have given him but yet conveying the feelings and the attitudes of a twelve year old boy who feels both resentment and love and experiences profound beauty and the low of human ugliness There are lyrical parts and trademark King unflinching gory parts, and social commentary without the slightest sugar coating The story is peppered in places with the stories written by older Gordon and full of reflections of the adult man reflecting on the important and defining experience of the end of his childhood The most important things are hardest to say, because words diminish them. It is a fascinating, engrossing read, the one that is well worth several hours of your time, even if you have never been a fan of King 5 stars and highly recommend

    Stephen King s wonderful 1982 novella, which was transformed into the classic 1986 film, Stand By Me, four young boys to come of age over a weekend together Set in 1960, the story takes place in the small town of Castle Rock, Maine, where twelve year old Gordie Lachance and his three friends are ready to set out to substantiate the rumours that the body of a missing boy has turned up near the next town As the boys to begin their summer trek, they must come together to face winding train tracks, a brief dip in an interesting water hole, and a great deal of self discovery In a story that seeks to explore the innermost thoughts and feelings of these four, the reader can see that emotions run deep and that the tough guy exteriors are only a pre teen facade King pulls the reader in from the outset in this well paced piece, which shows just how amazing youth can be, when tempered with a little sobering maturity Recommended for those who like King and his various writing styles No need to be wary, for there is little gore, but enough language that some readers may want to look elsewhere.I always enjoy Stephen King pieces, as they keep me wondering where things will go in his circuitous writing style There was a strict ban on my reading his novels when I was younger, for reasons I am not entirely sure I remember My adult years have been spent catching up and I have come to see that King can be a little intense, but he has a great deal I thoroughly enjoy King offers up a lighter novella here, allowing his characters to develop nicely without the excessive gore Gordie Lachance is both the presumptive protagonist and the author of this story, a flashback piece penned when he was much older Lachance explores some of the sentiments of his own childhood, as well as honing his skills as a writer Gordie offers up much development as it relates to his friends, giving the reader a comprehensive approach to those who populate the story Through a series of events that weave together into the larger story, King allows his characters to mature through their learning experiences Keeping the reader engaged throughout this quick read, King shows just how strong his writing can be, close to four decades later Kudos, Mr King, for another wonderful piece of writing I am happy to have stumbled upon this one and will admit that I have not seen Stand By Me in its entirety, which will soon change.Like hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons, a different sort of Book Challenge

    Find all of my reviews at premise is simple Do you guys wanna go see a dead body The end product is quite possibly the best coming of age story ever written This is what the saying boys will be boys is about It s about going on an adventure, and saying swear words when out of your parents earshot, and trying a cigarette just so you can say you did, and standing up to bullies, and most of all it s about friendship Because really I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve Jesus, did you I decided to give this one a listen after forcing it on my oldest son in order to make sure he s actually reading when he says he is There s a good chance he ll choose to be contrary simply to hurt my feelings since even the most decent teenager is still pretty horrible The good news is I was able to pull a double whammy and make the youngest listen too on the way to and from his baseball tournament this weekend He arrived a little late to the party when Gordy and the boys were getting ready to meet Milo Pressman and the notorious Chopper and was on the edge of his seat during the train dodge He completely blew me away when he complained as I hit strategically hit pause at a certain point in the story so we could hear it in full the next morning And what a morning we had A total barf o rama full of cackling and full blown guffaws An obvious must for any Constant Reader and, as far as I m concerned, anyone else as well Truly an actual contender when it comes to the like this or we can t be friends option It s that good And the movie is one of the best book to screen translations in the history of filmmaking Perfection Endnote This was my third audio book and I finally found a winner Frank Muller s voice was just like butter The only thing that could have been better is if it would have been Richard Dreyfus doing the narrating

    Well what can I say What a great coming of age drama King at his absolute best When this story was made into a film Stand By Me with River Phoenix and Keifer Sutherland I thought there is no way they will make the movie as good as the book Well I was wrong, the film is brilliant too So darling, darling, stand, by me, oooooooh Stand, by me

    I really liked the movie Stand By Me so I knew going in to expect a great read, but what I found was so much .

    The Body is a timeless coming of age story Set in late summer of 1960 s Maine, four twelve year old buddies, all with strangely abusive and dysfunctional families, take a longer than anticipated walking trip in hopes of seeing a dead body rud to be hit by a train As their many harrowing adventures and touching personal stories unfold, they run into big trouble with some older dudes, but rein victoriousor so they think.

    In the end, the boys discover many tough, but important lessons about life, and the narrator unlike in the movie reveals how three of the lads sadly meet their untimely demise The only downside for me is wishing I would have skipped the five plus hours of audio and opted for a good old ordinary book 4.5 Stars.

    4.5 StarsI LOVE the movie Stand By Me I don t know if its because its a great film it is Or if it s because I watched it around the same time, I watched movies like The Sandlot and My Girl So in my mind I just equate them with summers in my childhood I haven t watched Stand By Me in probably over 15years, it was probably around the same time I read this book for the first time I remember not really liking the book back then I think it was the combination of it being a non horror Stephen King book and or because I loved the movie so much This time around I loved this book the only thing stopping it from being a 5 star read is that its in my opinion too short I want As an adult I read this book in a completely different way and I m sure that I would view the movie differently now as well The Body is about 4 friends who decide to go on a weekend adventure to find the rud body of a kid who was hit by a train It s Stephen King so know its gonna be a darker read but despite that morbid premise The Body is a story of friendships The boys are around 12 years old and they ve been inseparable for years but they can feel themselves growing apart High School tends to do that When I was a kid I hung out with about 6 girls and we just knew we would be friends forever but by sopho year I was only still friends with 3 and as an adult I m only friends with 1 Times change In high school I found my tribe but I still have fond memories of my preteen girl gang , even if I m no longer friends with them The Body is the perfect gateway drug to start reading Stephen King Its not scary, its not gory maybe a little bit gory , and it has a lot of heart.

    This early Stephen King story was adapted into the 1986 movie Stand by Me The setting is 1960s Maine where four young teens take a walking adventure trip looking for a dead boy s body If you grew up in the 50s and 60s, this is the kind of stuff you would do, damn the consequences Great story telling by a master story teller.

    The most important things are the hardest to say, because words diminish them It s hard to make strangers care about the good things in your life Besides Charles Dickens and Ruth Hogan, Stephen King is one of the few authors I admire who has always been able to stir so many different emotions in me in a single book Any other author could have written the simple story of 4 adolescents, who decide to embark on a journey to see the body of another youth, who has been killed by a train But not anyone could have conveyed the senses of pleasure, misery, horror, rage, decency, camaraderie, wonderment and sympathy embedded throughout the story.
