    Chilling. I can't think of another word now that I finished the story. Well written and scary. The story uses our fear of time, death and the unknown, quite interesting. I might come back to this review at some point in the future because it feels like my brain hasn't fully processed the story.

    Ooooo, chilling. Keeps you hooked til the morbid conclusion. My only gripe is that this should be a full length novel. I would devour it.

    There's a rumor The Jaunt will be a movie soon. I have to see it. What if scientists discovered how to teleport from one place to another. What if a conscious mind will realize that from one place to another "it's an eternity in there?" One of the scariest I've read.

    Just a snapshot of a story that gives a reader a sampling of how great a horror author Stephen King truly is. There are times when is stuff can fall flat on its face and other times when no one other than the Master can creep you out and have a story stick to your forever. Revival is one of this and THIS little slice is one of those times as well. Well done!

    An entertaining short story with an interesting subject - namely (space) teleportation. What if we could travel through space? How would that work? And would there be any dangers? A family is ready to get sent to another planet, but first the two children have a few questions for their dad. I especially liked how King interwove the past (the discovery of teleportation) with the 'now', it really added to the story. Perhaps the ending was a little predictable, but still an interesting concept none An entertaining short story with an interesting subject - namely (space) teleportation.

    I'm not much of a time-travel book fan, but this one made me interested because it has a touch of horror in it. This book was set at a time wherein innovation is prominent and gas is at its lowest price. People are fascinated with JAUNTING. Jaunting is a way of teleportation. It also has something to do with time travel. People go crazy when put in such a machine. The horrors could be endless and SK managed to show me just that. I recommend this to people who are looking for a short, good scare.

    Stephen King masterfully builds a fascinating, spooky, history surrounding a teleportation device in less than the number of pages in an Ikea instruction manual. Almost nothing major happens in this short story, as most of it is a retelling of history, but all of the little details add up to a thought exercise that is as mysterious as it is chilling.

    I read this story about a year back and it still give me creeps, literally. No, I am not trying to exaggerate at all. Even I used to wonder, how can reading a horror story scare you but I am really glad(or scared), I came across it!

    You know what is coming long before the end, but it doesn't make the conclusion any less chilling. I wish it was a full length novel because I feel like I have to know what happened to the woman whose husband pushed her in!

    This short story is a perfect example of what makes Stephen King so great; in so few pages he can create a story that feels so complete and genuinely chilling. Whilst the ending is kind of predictable, it still gets you – I was left just sitting there, reeling, for quite a while once I had finished, just trying to comprehend what I had just read. The Jaunt will definitely stay with me for a long time.

    Often among the first King short stories to come up in discussion of King. Was a bit underwhelmed. More of a unique concept than truly scary. For it's briefness and novelty of idea, I would recommend it. The idea will stay with me and I was entertained, but just lukewarm scariness for me.

    Read this short story after randomly coming across it online. I can see this being a full novel or a movie someday-- very gripping, chilling, and gets inside your head. But what else do you expect from Stephen King-- only enhanced by the fact that he squeezed all the impact in 16 short pages.

While I think the pacing of this leaves something to desired, the story itself is very interesting and a look into the idea of a true kind of hell. Aside from the terrifying aspect of the ending, I appreciated the issue caused by the father attempting to shield his children from the horrible truth and thus leading to the kid diving right into danger. The Jaunt is a lesson in parenting as much as it is a horror story.

    I feel like I could talk about this forever. The stuff this story is made of is incredible. Four stars because the language--some of the language used really dates the work and took me out of the "experience." But that's a personal quip (more than anything else). The final image is NOT as shocking as people make it seem (maybe it was at the time) but the implications of what lead to this final image/moment happening: breath-taking. I live for THIS kind of fiction. Neat & straight-to-the-poin I feel like I could talk about this forever. The stuff this story is made of is incredible.

    Although the last few paragraphs of this book took you through a huge range of emotions and feelings, this book was predominantly so so. In essence, this is a book about teleportation with suddenly a grippingly sad story crammed in at the very end.

    Well, the story was neither scary nor much of a thriller. On the whole, I found the language a little tough to comprehend. King's imagination is profound and admirable A family goes Jaunting, without knowing anything about Jaunting, and finally when they Jaunt, oh, it's a beautiful finish :)

    This has to be King's best scifi.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Absolutely amazing, surprise ending that leaves you mortified. A minor hole in the story though. You think they wouldve figured out how to ensure people were asleep so no one would encounter this ending. King could've also wrote that although the boy seemed asleep, he was mentally awake like the terror stories you hear of anesthesia not working properly. But i guess he wouldnt come out crazy gouging his eyes if that were the case. That's really the creepy part.

    Here's a quick horror story that plays with some interesting concepts. The fact that it starts in the '80s with an alternate history that is nothing like today dates it a bit. In my opinion, it wasn't particularly chilling or surprising and seems like the kind of thing that they'd have safety measures for if Jaunting had been around for 300 years already. I don't think I'd particularly recommend it, but I wouldn't say it's a waste either.

    King paying homage of Alfred Bester through the eyes of a dumbass Dad who doesn't have the foggiest on what to say, whom to say to and when. Read it for some sadistic horror satisfaction, and don't be fooled by its sci-fi masquerade. Contact fused in Its a beautiful day and fired with plot holes.

    A fantastic, terrifying concept let down by a really clumsy ending that relies on an unbelievable level of professional incompetence. There were such better ways for King to "get there" than the silly way he chose. It's weird that he fleshed out the earlier science fiction elements so well, then botched the finale.

    This was a really good short story by King! It wasn't nearly as horrifying as what I imagined it would be... which is why it received 3 stars from me. I don't know what that says about my mind and my cognizance... but I expect more sheer terror from King.

    So cool! I had to pick a short story for a school project and I ran into this one and good lord! I love it when books make me react out loud and this one did!

    I really loved the book, since it's sort of horror & sort sci-fi, which are my favorite genres.
