Mile 81 isStand by Me meets Christine--the story of an insatiable car and a heroic kid. At Mile 81 on the Maine turnpike is a boarded up rest stop, a place where high school kids drink and get into the kind of trouble high school kids have always gotten into. It's the place where Pete Simmons goes when his older brother, who's supposed to be looking out for him, heads off to the gravel pit to play "paratroopers over the side." Pete, armed only with the magnifying glass he got for his tenth birthday, finds a discarded bottle of vodka in the boarded up burger shack and drinks enough to pass out. Not much later, a mud-covered station wagon (which is strange because there hadn't been any rain in New England for over a week) veers into the Mile 81 rest area, ignoring the sign that says "closed, no services." The driver's door opens but nobody gets out. Doug Clayton, an insurance man from Bangor, is driving his Prius to a conference in Portland. On the backseat are his briefcase and suitcase and in the passenger bucket is a King James Bible, what Doug calls "the ultimate insurance manual," but it isn't going to save Doug when he decides to be the Good Samaritan and help the guy in the broken down wagon. He pulls up behind it, puts on his four-ways, and then notices that the wagon has no plates. Ten minutes later, Julianne Vernon, pulling a horse trailer, spots the Prius and the wagon, and pulls over. Julianne finds Doug Clayton's cracked cell phone near the wagon door - and gets too close herself. By the time Pete Simmons wakes up from his vodka nap, there are a half a dozen cars at the Mile 81 rest stop. Two kids - Rachel and Blake Lussier - and one horse named Deedee are the only living left. Unless you maybe count the wagon.… (mais)

I give it two stars because I did not actively hate it, and it generated a modicum of suspense. However, as other reviewers have noted, the child characters are laughably/cringeworthily unbelievable, and the ending is abrupt, contrived, and unsatisfying. Also, the details, of which there are many, had no discernible purpose. What was the point of going into the backstory of every character who came along, especially when most had no significance other than to be a victim? A name would have been sufficient, but the plot doesn't even require that. By the end of the story I had no idea why I was made privy to all the information it had presented me with. ( )

Not worth the short amount of time it took to read or the small amount of money to buy. It's basically "Christine" Lite with no surprises whatsoever. Not King's brightest moment. ( )

Mile 81 is a short e-book released by Stephen King in September 2011. It was released only as an e-book, so I had not read it yet, but then my kids bought me a Kindle for my birthday, and I got to read it and i loved it! Mile 81 is just like the stories King used to write, back when I was younger; hairy, fun, and fascinating. It has been a long, LONG time since I have felt this level of horror while reading a book - ANY novel, much less a Stephen King novel. And it was a very welcome feeling.... The next day. After I'd gotten over the horror. Lol.

Normally, when it comes to Stephen King, I generally prefer his huge, chunky books, like 11/22/63, and The Stand. While I like his short stories, they just haven’t always been the easiest things for me to get into—although I think part of the problem is that I get too into them, and they are too short. But Mile 81 seemed like just the right length. It was a simple plot that wrapped up quite nicely.

It’s too long to be a short story and too short to be a novel, so I can’t compare it to much else of King’s work that I’ve read…the only thing I can compare it to is The Mist, which I read a few years ago and enjoyed, but Mile 81 was much better, in my opinion. While I felt that The Mist could probably have been longer than it was and more fleshed out because it was a pretty complex story; Mile 81 was simple: evil car. Car eats people. Can anyone survive...?

If you’re looking for a quick read and you do have an e-reader, or an iPhone and are willing to spend the $2.99 for a great story, you should download this one. King fans will immediately recognize (and love) his unique narrative voice and well-crafted characters. ( )

Can't beat Stephen King for originality and terror. This story was good, but the end wasn't quite satisfying although maybe that was his point. A good quick read. ( )

I don't generally enjoy SK's alien tales, but this one was amusing, particularly the part about a boy chasing away an alien with the use of the magnifying glass trick. ( )
