What the Critics Say

"Each of these stories draws the reader into King's slightly off-center world...developing characters and atmosphere more fully in the span of 50 pages than many authors can in a full novel." (Amazon.com)
"The author is not only immensely popular but immensely talented, a modern-day counterpart to Twain, Hawthorne, Dickens...No one does it better." (Publishers Weekly)

An enjoyable listen...

5 stories from King that are classic King. All very different and all narrators do an excellent job.

The stories are of varying length. The 2 longest are the first title 'Everything's Eventual' and the tale of King's gunslinger from the Dark Tower books. The others are short, but not fillers.

If you're considering your first Stephen King audiobook, I'd recommend 'The Shining' before this, but this is pretty good.
