Short Story of The Week (47) - Sorry, Right Number

Story Title: Sorry, Right Number
From: Nightmares & Dreamscapes.
Author: Stephen King


Author's wife gets a mysterious call.

Favorite line

"Bad to buy trouble before you know it's on sale."

My Thoughts

"Sorry, Right Number" differs from other short stories in the way that is written in screenplay format. It's unusual format to find in a short story book, but nonetheless it is quite fun to read. The screenplay format made the imagery seem more prevalent. The story leans more towards being a time warp story than a Stephen King's normally creepy tales. Not that it doesn't have a certain level scare factor involved. As usual I enjoyed that and it came around to where this story started from. I really love the directions the tale took the reader in. I would definitely read it again. A great story for easy late night reading.
