“Whatever you want,” he says, “and you will want it, the owner of the box always does. It’s normal. Wanting to know things is what the human race is all about. Exploration, Gwendy! Both the disease and the cure!”
Yet another absorbing story by Stephen King. Gwendy’s Button Box brings to life King’s trademark style, a style that gives a strong sense of place and an unsettling sense of something other. When Gwendy is handed a mysterious button box, she finds herself capable of fulfilling most of her wishes and without her say so. As the years pass the box is a constant in Gwendy’s life. A secret that she both wants to be rid off, and keep to herself. As always with King, things start taking a dark turn when Gwendy’s curiosity makes her push one of the buttons of her box.
A quick and vivid novel that perfectly combines humor and drama. King has done it again.
