Publisher's Summary

At midnight comes the point of balance. Of danger. The instant of utter stillness when, between two beats of the heart, an alternative reality can slip through, like a blade between the ribs, and switch you into a new and terrifying world.

Four Past Midnight: four heart-stopping accounts of that moment when the familiar world fractures beyond sense, the fragments spinning away from the desperate, clutching reach of sanity....

©1990 Stephen King (P)1991 Penguin Highbridge Audio

    Story
    "Four stars for four tall tales"

    Langoliers: Willem Dafoe reads what is essentially an updated version of the Twilight Zone's 'King Nine will not return' while confusing English accents with South African. Brings a two star story up to a four

    Secret Window Secret Garden: Hades is by far the best star narrator since Paul Giamatti, taking a predictable thriller and turning it into the verbal equivalent of a Three Card Monty game. You don't really care what happens as long as Woods is narrating at his rat-a-tat pace

    Library Policeman: Excellent buildup to a terrible conclusion, saved by the fantastic narration of Ken Howard. Think RC Bray reading Stephen King and you'll savour this one

    Sun Dog: Finally, both sides balance out. A great story, a fine narrator. Should have traded with Dafoe and it would have been an extra half star.

    Buy if it's on offer but otherwise leave it on your wish list. I also should add at this point it's still better than anything King has conjured with in this century

    Story
    "Turgid nonsense, badly narrated"

    I am a Stephen King fan, but these four short stories must be the worst things he's ever written. All four are pointless and meandering codswallop.
    But worse still, the four narrators are awful. The first seems to think English and South African accents are interchangeable. The second....actually I'll leave it there.
    Avoid at all costs!!
