Publisher's Summary

Stephen Crane's fascinating story "The Blue Hotel" is seen by many as a study of fear. Crane used the stereotypical 1890's American West as his setting, and the story uses a card game to show how fear feeds upon itself. There are both inner fears and fears existing in reality, and the ways that they interact with each other make for a fascinating tale.


What the Critics Say

"The best of Crane's Western stories and one of his handful of fictional masterworks." (Stanley Wertheim, A Stephen Crane Encyclopedia)

Interesting story but dissapointing performance

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, the reader was too fast at the beginning. It was stressful trying to keep up.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Too fast and a Swedish accent that sounded as if it was out of Monty Python.

If this book were a film would you go see it?
