Brilliant stories

Loved the stories in this collection. Each one is superb. I can’t pick a favourite as they all have their own strengths. Frank Muller was a wonderful narrator.

My only criticism is I found it frustrating how short the gap between the end of one story and the start of the next was. When I finish a story I think it’s important to take a second to finish digesting what you just heard. Each story follows after a very short pause from the last. I had to pause the story to take some time. If a short 10-15 second bit of simple music was played between it would allow a chance to breath before the next one started without thinking the audiobook had stop playing. A lot of King audiobooks use music for seemingly no reason, it would be useful here.

One of the Best King Books, top 5 at least

Any additional comments?

What a brilliant selection of stories. Many writers would be happy to have produced just one of these masterpieces in their life time and king comes out with four in one book.
You will know the Shawshank Redemption and the Body as they were extremely popular films (The Body was used as the basis for Stand By Me) All 4 stories are superb and a must for any King fan or someone just wanting to dip their toe into the King back catalogue.
