Beschreibung

In the emotional aftermath of her baby's sudden death, Em starts running. Soon she runs from her husband, to the airport, down to the Florida Gulf and out to the loneliest stretch of Vermillion Key, where her father has offered the use of a conch shack he has kept there for years. Em keeps up her running -- barefoot on the beach, sneakers on the road -- and sees virtually no one. This is doing her all kinds of good, until one day she makes the mistake of looking into the driveway of a man named Pickering. Pickering also enjoys the privacy of Vermillion Key, but the young women he brings there suffer the consequences. Will Em be next?

    Honestly, I didn't think I'd like this as much as I did. I'm not a big fan of short stories, but I thought I'd give it a try because it's on disc, and I really liked it. Winningham does an excellent job of reading. A reader can either make or break a story, and Winningham makes this story. A woman takes up running after her baby dies. It's the only way she can deal with the loss. Each day she runs a bit more. Mile after mile. She then goes to her father's vacation cottage, and takes up running there. Just one problem, when she goes to her father's vacation cottage, she runs right into a serial killer. That's pretty much all I want to say on the plot. This was such a good read, you'll be hooked right off the bat. The story itself was pretty good, but Winningham does such a good job as the reader, I highly suggest you go to your local library and check out the audio version of The Gingerbread Girl.

    Em takes up running after the loss of her child and as a way to escape from the growing emptiness in her marriage. She separates from her husband to spend some alone time reflecting on things on a remote key in Florida. While there she sees something she shouldn't and is forced to basically run for her life! I love how King portrays the villain...the things he say indicate the mind of a true mad man. The ending is quite fitting...this was a quick 2 hour 'listen' that kept my attention. Would recommend for those who want a quick fix of King-style suspense.

    Short and right to the action! I thought this tale had just the right tempo and voice to keep it realistic.

    I enjoyed this book very much, though it was not so much the horror book that I expected as it was a psychological thriller. I immediately thought of Duma Key when Em left to stay at Vermillion Key so she could spend some time alone. (And didn't the main character in Duma Key also run?) I have hoped for a while that some of Stephen King's "audio only" books would come out in print, but I finally broke down and started looking for the audio books. This was a nice way to pass a few hours of driving time.

    "Run, run as fast as you can! You can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread --- " Oh, well that was a different story. This one will keep you glued to the edge of your seat as Stephen King breaks down his plot second by second, movement to movement into deliciously frightening "slices ". I'm not usually a fan of this genre, but it's short and has an especially "sweet" ending. Enjoy.
