A star-studded cast of readers presents unabridged tales of horror and suspense from master storyteller Stephen King. The Stephen King Amusement Park - an unnerving experience, with rides every which way to hell...and a few to glory. A solitary finger pokes out of a drain. Novelty teeth turn predatory. The Nevada desert swallows a Cadillac. Meanwhile, the legend of Castle Rock returns...and grows on you. What does it all mean? What else could it mean?

At the risk of quoting a famous movie line, a book of short stories is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your going to get until you listen to them, in this box there are some delicious and tasty morsels, and equally some which may turn your stomach.
But go ahead and try and if you take a bite and don't like it, you can always put it back in the box!

The Perry family's new house is perfect - except for the weird behavior of the neighbors, and that odd smell coming from a dark corner in the basement. Pity no one warned the family about the house. Now it's too late. Because the darkness at the bottom of the basement stairs is rising.

Very well written and expertly narrated. Very atmospheric, chilling and moving in parts, brought to life extremely well by one of the best narrators I've heard.

Whoever is born here is doomed to stay until death. Whoever comes to stay never leaves. Welcome to Black Spring, the seemingly picturesque Hudson Valley town haunted by the Black Rock Witch, a 17th-century woman whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. Blind and silenced, she walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children's beds for nights on end. So accustomed to her have the townsfolk become that they often forget she's there. Or what a threat she poses.

Excellent fresh new take on a horror novel involving a witches curse.
At the very beginning I wasn't sure what was going on as you are kind of dropped into the story without any background information and I was kind of confused (you will understand when you listen) but I'm glad I stuck with it as I was rewarded greatly.
It was a real rollercoaster of a novel, extremely scary at times, also funny and in places very moving, it was difficult not to feel for the main characters.
The narrated did a wonderful job at telling this tale, and I applaud such a terrific audiobook.

I have listened to many fantastic audiobooks from the likes of Stephen King, also the spine chilling heart shaped box and more recently the brilliantly conceptual hex, however this one pales in comparison, making it appear rather amateurish.
The actual story isn't too bad, there are a lot worse out there, (although I couldn't really care about the main protagonists, they just came across as miserable and whiny), I guess it's just the way it's written, also the narrater has no passion or feeling and sometimes sounds like CP30 reading out a list of facts, although he can do a few accents, his reading doesn't do the novel any favours.
I guess if this was ever to be released as a movie, it would be the kind to go straight to DVD.
