    1. From what I'd heard, or rather read, through my friend's reviews, that this novella isn't that great: I would partially disagree. Stephen King is such a skillful writer: he can make any ordinary story sound incredible; and not everyone can do that. It's true, I agree, that the story, at first, doesn't seem to be that promising/interesting; but The Breathing Method is a story so well told that you get immersed in it that you don't even know it. What would have been an ordinary story, King has mad [...]

    2. >'It is the tale,not he who tells it.'Description: There is a strange club in New York where men tell each other stories. The years pass but no one looks any older. One night a doctor tells the story of a young woman who gives birth to a baby in the most horrible way! Evil psychic powers, obsession and the supernatural in the most ordinary, everyday places. A spine-chiller from the master of horror.From 'A Winter's Tale' section of the 'Different Seasons collection released in 1982, so this w [...]

    3. Another masterful short and sweet novella by the horror mind of Stephen King. This one takes place at a special Club where gentleman gather to tell stories. All stories culminate in the tale of a pregnant women and her fairy bizarre unfortunate delivery. This is truly a horror story with some some specs of light interspersed in it. If you are a horror genre fan this one is a must-read!4 Stars

    4. I just re-read The Breathing Method about ten years after my first time through it, and I have to say I found it much more rewarding this time. the novella probably suffers from the fact that it’s packed into Different Seasons with 3 of King’s most famous works, The Body, Shawshank Redemption, and Apt Pupil, and it is really the only true Horror story in the bunch. I’d forgotten that King uses a far different voice than in his other books, almost a H.P Lovecraft tone. His old gentlemen’s [...]

    5. Μόλις τελείωσα την μικρή ιστορία με τον τίτλο "Μέθοδος αναπνοών" που βρίσκεται στην συλλογή μικρών ιστοριών με τίτλο "Different seasons" που επιλέξαμε με την ομάδα ανάγνωσης μου για αυτή την εβδομάδα. Μπορώ να πω πως είχα πολύ καιρό να ευχαριστηθώ τόσο πολύ μια ιστορία και να επωφελ [...]

    6. This one gave me the creeps alright.Had to learn the breathing method with bated breath for most part.Successfully annulled the effects of reading four Wodehouses in a row.

    7. I had an odd experience with this one. I had first tried reading it in print as part of Different Seasons and I could not finish it. I found it boring, uninteresting and not engaging. This time I listened to it in audio format and really enjoyed it.It's a story about a story and I think that is why I liked it better as an audiobook. I enjoyed sitting back and just imagining that I was at the Club in the book and I was being told the story during Christmas just like the members of the Club.It's g [...]

    8. I really enjoyed reading this suspenseful story about stories or "tales." This is a story of a men's "club" who gather around once a week to drink fine wine and tell each other tales. The story is told from the point of view of David, however, the point of view changes to another character Emlyn McCarron who takes over to tell his uncanny Christmas tale. The story by Steven King is all about this story telling gentleman's club and how David came to be a "member." However, the purpose of writing [...]

    9. The thing about me and horror/thriller/suspense books is that I am not sure how I am supposed to feel. Afraid? Creeped out? If I could figure out how the author probably wants me to react I can know better if it failed or was success.This story just made me think, "huh, weird" and that's it. I kind of want to be freaked out. Afraid, etc.Is that possible from a book?

    10. Different Seasons consists of 4 novellas & all of them are basically character studies.It firmly established King as a pure literary genius & quashed all naysayers who had him typecast ed as a horror writer.It shows off the width & variety of human emotions that King could easily write about without ever sounding cheesy or unrealistic & how his style makes us care for characters whom we otherwise would have hated.I would provide a brief synopsis of each of the 4 novellas & wh [...]

    11. The Breathing Method is an unsettling, downright weird story. One which I'm still trying to wrap my head around. I liked the story within a story format. It felt like a Twilight Zone episode, where you're left wondering what the hell just happened. It feels like a story that will stay with me for a while. It was definitely not the strongest story in this collection, and well behind Rita Heyworth and the Shawshank Redemption and The Body, but I still really enjoyed it.Also, I found it interesting [...]

    12. One hears (much less find) a Men’s Club on this side of the Atlantic. What is commonplace with our English cousins is a rarity by us. What makes this masculine association even more enigmatic and strange is that it isn’t. What I mean is it isn’t a club in the traditional sense. There are no members, dues, or organization. It is simply an address where men go and be men; and tell stories. The concept of writing about something that isn’t is pure King. It also seems ironic that the truly g [...]

    13. Classic King! He managed to weave in a plethora of details that just made the story more interesting instead of distracting or "filling." The best thing about this short story was that while it seemed to center on a stodgy old gentlemen's club (and never really resovled the vague mystery of that), it was actually about an eerie story told by one of the club members. Great stuff!

    14. Out of all the stories in Different Seasons Shawshank Redemption was probably my overall favorite, followed by Apt Pupil, but The Breathing Method stuck with me the most. Day's after I read it I couldn't stop thinking about it! So chilling!

    15. Classic Stephen King, even better listening to it on Audible, getting the full sense of his chilly tales. Also don't read if you are pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant. Glad LO is 8 months and I didn't find this gem sooner

    16. I actually really enjoyed this. I have to read this one more time just so I can take some notes for school and I'm interested to see if I missed some possible foreshadowing.

    17. It may be one of his most shocking, yet touching and well written novellas. I recommend it dearly to all of his fans.

    18. The Breathing Method is the last novella in a series of 4 that make up the compendium that is Different Seasons. I flew through this particular story as it was on the shorter side compared to the other novellas in Different Seasons.Although short it was sweet, bitter sweet. I think where The Breathing Method really shines is in the title itself. Without going into spoilers, The Breathing Method is the title of a short story delivered by a gentleman who makes up a part of what you could somewhat [...]

    19. Creepy, poignant, inviting, intoxicating. It draws you in slowly and grabs ahold of you until the thrilling finish. A great finish to a fine collection of novellas.

    20. Mijn ene favoriete auteur King brengt ode aan mijn andere favorite auteur Poe. Hiermee kan ik niet anders dan blij zijn!

    21. J'ai adoré vraiment cette histoire, je pense que cette nouvelle a été la meilleure du livre Different Seasons.

    22. Stephen KingThe Breathing MethodBuchbesprechung von Jürgen Brandl(simplified version)About the authorStephen King was born on September 21, 1947 in Portland, Maine. In 1949, when Stephen was 2 years old, his father left one night and never came back. There are a couple of turning points in his young life that he believes pointed him in the direction that he now is at. In 1954 he began to write stories. Around 1959, he found a box of horror and sci-fi books in his aunt's house. Those books broug [...]

    23. The story starts off slow and you don't really know where its going, but man, does it take you there! I have read so many books by many different writers but Stephen King is by far the best storyteller. A very good read indeed!

    24. My mother said she read a lot of Stephen King while pregnant with me, but it was “The Breathing Method” that scared the hell out of her. At the time she was seven months pregnant, and now some thirty years later, I’ve written my fair share of horror . . . All those in utero dreams of King’s imagination.

    25. I listened to the entire Different Seasons collection but felt each story should be review separately, as they are so different. This is easily the weakest of the collection and feels a bit like it was just thrown in to round out the 4 story volume. This story itself is two stories hastily cobbled together. The mysterious men's club storyline is genuinely interesting and engaging. After setting this up and piquing my interest, the narrative then diverts completely to a weird, earnest, mostly unc [...]

    26. I loved the style of this book. A story within a story. Only this this time I seriously enjoyed the story within the story, compared to the story Paul Sheldon was writing within Misery. :)The book starts off following an old man who finds himself being a part of an alluring gentleman's club. In the club they tell stories and seem to just relax. The imagery within this book is superb and I almost wanted to join the club myself. Of course, Stephen King couldn't resist putting in a moment that sugg [...]
