With the "Last Castle Rock Story" King bids a magnificent farewell to the f ictional Maine town where much of his previous work has been set. Of grand proportion, the novel ranks with King's best, in both plot and characteriza tion. A new store, Needful Things, opens in town, and its proprietor, Lelan d Gaunt, offers seemingly unbeatable (read: Faustian) bargains to Castle Ro ck's troubled citizens. Among them are Polly Chalmers, lonely seamstress wh ose arthritis is only one of the physical and psychic pains she must bear; Brian Rusk, the 11-year-old boy whose mother is not precisely attentive; an d Alan Pangborn, the new sheriff whose wife and son have recently died. The se are only three of the half-dozen or so brilliantly drawn people met in t he novel's one-month time span. As the dreams of each strikingly memorable character, major and minor, inexorably turn to nightmare, individuals and s oon the community are overwhelmed, while the precise nature of Gaunt's evil thrillingly stays just out of focus. King, like Leland Gaunt, knows just w hat his customers want.
