    1. Here we are again. This is the fourth entry in my Stephen King short story reread series, and I am having the time of my life. I hope you are, too. King's short tales are woefully underrated, and I'm having a ball going back and rediscovering them. I must admit King's sci-fi stories tend to be a bit hit or miss. Sci-fi isn't my favorite genre, and some of King's attempts at it are especially weak. His best is "The Jaunt"; his worst is probably Dreamcatcher (or maybe the ending of Under the Dome) [...]


    2. 5 stars for sure. I love that even though it was short, it didn't feel like the story was underdeveloped. it had the perfect amount of detail.



    3. A short story from the Night Shift collection. A very enjoyable way to kill a half an hour at lunch break. I'll have to hunt down the movie adaption.


    4. Definitely creepy. The kinds that make me lose some sleep. While reading the story, my hands started to itch, which I know is psychological, but maybe it's just good writing.



    5. I really enjoyed this short story by Stephen King. In it, we the reader are learn about a disabled, former astronaut who's body(hand) seems to host the gateway to something otherworldly and sinister.While I live short stories as a means to be keep busy in a short down time I wish this story would've been flushed out even more. The premise was interesting and I really wanted to see how far this could goDENOTE:I definitely started to itch while reading this which was very disheartening.


    6. Holy Ophthalmology did this made me squirm and shiver in delicious horror! I'll be looking at my hands weird for a while


    7. Not great, not bad. This short story nets a zero for me."I Am The Doorway" is the source material for the 'Night Shift' paperback cover with the eyeballs on the bandaged hand. Written from a first-person perspective, our narrator is a former astronaut recounting his space trip to Venus and some unexpected side effects he's had to deal with since coming back to Earth.Again, this isn't a bad story. It's just not one of my favorites. Middle of the road material as far as Stephen King short stories [...]


    8. Listened to the audiobook. I cant figure out how to rate it. My first thought was 2. Then 3. I dunno. 2.5 stars?This story was. weird. Sad.What was this story really about? A guy with mental disease that couldn't cope? Drug abuse?"I don't expect having any trouble putting the shot gun in my mouth and pulling the trigger."


    9. Sometimes I just want to get in other world to be free and to start as a new person, this story just made me a new person it was like I was in his body And I could feel what he was feeling, I knew what he was done, I was like a virus knowing everything. That's one well made stort Story by Stephen King.


    10. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4.Was this man snorting coke? Oh, you mean he was? I see. Well, that explains this. Very enjoyable sci-fi/horror jimmy-jank. Aliens (kind of). Parasitic disease (kind of). Malevolence (definitely). Check it out.


    11. My favorite in the Night Shift, I Am The Doorway is a crazy, in depth, and all out frightening story which gets your heart pacing and your mind racing. Definitely recommended for classic horror fans.



    12. well written as you would expect and a good premise the pacing is good everything you would want from a short story a strong 3 stars






    13. A nice short sci-fi/horror story by Stephen King. As an audiobook it was well narrated. It had a good plot even though the story was so short. I think it could have done well as a longer story.


    14. From Cavalier, Mar 1971 collected in Night Shift then in Gray Matter and Other Stories from Night Shiftlatest re-read 1-5-2015



    15. Even the mention of this title chills me even though years have passed since I read this story. Do I need to say more?


    16. A terrifying and classic collection containing twenty of King’s most legendary tales. I reviewed Night Shift as a composed body, rating each short story therein individually. To read the actual review, search: Night Shift
