Mile 81 by Stephen King

It is two weeks surrounding the Easter holidays the slowest time of the year on the nation’s turnpikes, and the afternoon is the second-slowest time of the day, the hours between midnight and 5 am is the slowest time. One abandoned service stop on Mile 81 is about to receive some helpful traffic.
We have all driven on the rapid fast lane but time and tiredness takes it toll on our souls and a long overdue rest is always advised but where? After reading this you may think twice on exactly where you stop. When out there in your motor vehicle you see desperate souls looking like they are stranded its best to leave it to the Breakdown services or the Police, for might not be what it seems and you don’t want to get caught up in a Venus fly trap of a point of no return stop. The skill of the Masterful writer Stephen King is he uses everyday people and everyday objects and throws them into mayhem and macabre he creates stories of gore and horror with themes of survival and triumph. This story flowed by fast and was put together in a good fashion which became a enjoyable short read.
