    1. (Included as a bonus story in Blockade Billy, and collected in The Bazaar of Bad Dreams)A great short story, but the ending seemed a little rushed and left me feeling flat. But overall, a good read.

    2. King is, welle King at creating interesting situations and this was no exception. Yuck! Just yuck.The ending felt rushed and incomplete, but his endings often do so I am no longer surprised or disappointed by that.

    3. Lost my review last evening so starting over. The 4th star for this novella is solely for how good the narrator was. The story, as one might expect from King, was strange and unsettling. Chad and Nora have been married for a few years and have fallen on hard times. Chad is a substitute teacher and aspiring author. Nora is a home care nurse currently taking care of a retired minister who had a stroke. They have bills that have them feeling underwater. Nora comes home one day and tells Chad about [...]

    4. Am 18. Januar 2016 erscheint "Basar der bösen Träume", eine Kurzgeschichtensammlung von Stephen King, im Heyne Verlag. Um dieses Buch noch mehr zu promoten, werden nun häppchenweise einige der Kurzgeschichten vorab als Ebook veröffentlicht. Als großer Fan von Stephen King musste ich somit einige der Geschichten direkt kaufen und habe diese auch sofort gelesen.Während mich zum Beispiel die Kurzgeschichte "Ein bisschen angeschlagen" von Anfang bis Ende gepackt hat, fand ich bei "Moral" leide [...]

    5. The story was interesting except the ending. It wasn't a bad ending but a feeling of something missing hung around as I stared at the last page wondering if more words would manifest to make things clearer.Now it could be my ineptitude at reading. I might have missed something but it's something to report nonetheless.Anyway the idea was good enough and for a short story it performed admirably.

    6. This was an ok short story to fit in with the other ok short stories collected in the Bazaar of Bad Dreams. Not terrible but not wonderful either.

    7. Kurzbeschreibung:Der junge Lehrer Chad fühlt sich zum Schriftsteller berufen, aber bis das auch ein Verlag erkennt, hält er sich als Springer an verschiedenen Schulen über Wasser. Auch seine Frau verdient nicht viel, sie arbeitet als private Pflegerin bei einem Pfarrer im Ruhestand. Es geht ihnen wie vielen heutzutage finanziell nicht sonderlich gut. Da bekommt Nora von ihrem Arbeitgeber ein lukratives Angebot, mit dem das junge Paar den Traum vom eigenen Haus in Vermont verwirklichen könnte [...]

    8. 2 stars: Enjoyable but not much of a story, either due to flaws in the storyline or character development or the impression that there is something missing, possibly also just not very interesting.This story, as the title says, addresses morality or lack of morality. The story irritated me quite a bit, which seems to be the goal of the story to irritate and make people think about what morality is. The story achieved that goal in my mind but that doesn't mean that I enjoyed the story any more. N [...]

    9. After First ReadingThis was an odd story. I definitely preferred it over Blockade Billy, and I'll admit that it had me hooked, wanting to know where Mr Stephen was going to take it. But all things considered, it was just an average story worth reading, but not all that worth remembering. After Second ReadingWhat can I say? I liked this much more the second time. Thanks to Stephen's interesting autobiographical introduction featured in Bazaar Of Bad Dreams, it becomes much more obvious what he wa [...]

    10. Morality is one of those stories that has a really, really good premise. King set up everything pretty perfectly, and left me wondering what in the world was going to come of the characters. The last five pages, however, left me feeling empty. It was good. It wasn't great. By the end of the story, I felt like something was missing. I was left wondering, "Is that all? That's really all we're going to get?" I think this one could've been great if it had been followed through in a different way.

    11. Nora es un enfermera, dedica a cuidar de un acaudalado reverendo que había dejado la parroquia por un enfermedad que había paralizado por completo la mitad de su cuerpo.Mientras Nora y Chad, su marido, lidiaban con problemas económicos, el reverendo le propone una solución, una impúdica propuesta para ganar dinero y saldar todas sus cuentas e incluso más. La protagonista deberá tomar una decisión, estando entre la espada y la pared, sus principios contra la magnate propuesta, el camino q [...]

    12. Notes:"34:55""This work is another work entering the drama world. If you want drama come here and read this.""Torture fast and fast slowow the truth is so fucked up and strange this work which is by Stephen King is another strange.""Another not finished ending"

    13. Another one I knew by "Bazaar"; but I count it like a separate story because it was published originally as a short story (and because I'm 10 books behind schedule - ;-) )Din't care much about it; I thought the consequences (or the action itself) would be far more serious than it really was. Kind of disappointed by this one.

    14. The premise is pretty great. Most of the characters are believable and well developed enough, but it does begin to fall apart at the very end. Some of the character motivations and actions are a bit 'out-of-left-field'. It would have really benefitted from being a little longer.

    15. Oh the rise and fall of Chad and Nora! An excellent story, as always, by the master. Morality was setup extremely well and then the terrible cost finally revealed.

    16. Morality is an amazing story. How your decisions effect the how your life turns out. Very thought provoking to say the least.

    17. A Stephen King short story on sin. Didn't help that it was first published in Esquire so my audiobook came with a nice thumbnail of a naked woman plastered like a billboard with the title and text. Possibly seeing a woman reduced to a blank canvass didn't set me up in the best frame of mind to receive the story, or it could just have been as bad as I thought it was. Basically it's the story of woman decking a kid. A nasty priest paid her to do it. Dunno why, as a reverend I'm sure he had all kin [...]

    18. My rating: 3 starsAudiobook narrator Mare Winningham rating: 2.5 starsThis is my last book in my “Stephen King short stories kick.” This story was published in a magazine and the audio can be found after the Blockade Billy short story. The narrator was not the best (especially compared to Craig Wasson). The story was very disturbing (Stephen King style) and was a little strange. Though it kept me interested and wanted to see how it ended. (I think I need take a break from the Stephen King bo [...]

    19. The who, the why, and the what of the "deal" was far-fetched. The way the story was written (withholding what the deal was both from Winnie to Nora, and then Nora telling Chad - but we, the reader, are left out) was more disappointing than a suspenseful hook. I did not care for the direction the story took after the deal took place (the first request made by Nora was understandable - but the rest of it went south). The ending was disappointing.

    20. This was a short story that was too long. It should not have existed actually. I don't really want to give away the story, but it started as interesting and had a good build up and then turned weird in a not good way. One other note is that I listened to this over CD and the narrative person sounded like voice from my car navigation. There was no emotion and just boring. There were multiple sex parts and her voice seemed uncomfortable reading the words.

    21. This was a strange short story. I think King cold have flushed it out a bit more, but overall if you are a King fan a good short read. Our main character is seduced by money to assault a child, any child, and produce video evidence to collect her payoff. The problem is, this act of violence consumers her, changes her forever. There was no happy ending in this book, only a conclusion.
