Summary

Nothing is quite as it seems. Expect the unexpected in this veritable treasure trove of enthralling, witty, dark tales that could come only from the imagination of the greatest storyteller of our time.

In this eerie, enchanting compilation, Stephen King takes listeners down a road less travelled (for good reason) in the gripping 'Riding the Bullet'. Terror becomes déjà vu all over again when you get 'That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French'. 'LT's Theory of Pets' will make you stop and think before giving a dog to a loved one. And there are 11 more stories that will keep you awake until dawn.

Narrated by Becky Ann Baker, John Cullum, Boyd Gaines, Peter Gerety, Josh Hamilton, Arliss Howard, Judith Ivey, Stephen King, Justin Long, Oliver Platt and Jay O. Sanders.

A great collection of stories

I've really enjoyed this collection. As a 'constant reader' of Stephen King's I wanted some shorter stories to enjoy. Loved it. He creates mood and feeling. I especially enjoyed the stories read by him.

Exceptional selection of King at his best!

King is probably the weakest narrator, but still very good. The rest are fantastic.

Not all of the stories may be to your taste, personally I found the gunslinger story to be rather slow. But if you like anything of King's you'll find plenty to like in here!

Avoid wearing headphones

Great stories as expected from Stephen King but I couldn't finish a single one. The fact that it blares music at you throughout is massively distracting. 1408 (chapter 17) in particular is really bad, with the sax occasionally overriding the narrative. Big disappointment.

Decent.

Some of the stories aren’t that great, but on the whole, pretty good.
It wes worth the credit I spent on it.

Not worth the £4

Two of the short stories were alright, however, the rest were unbelievably dull. If I didn't hate leaving a book unfinished I would have stopped this an hour or two in.

Stephen King Reads 1408.

The stories are as usual. Classic Stephen King. I own Everything's Eventual in hardback. However I wanted to hear 1408 being read to me.

The audiobook is okay, but I had to drop it a star for the music as it tries to set an atmosphere. Not really for me as I was not expecting a performance.

That being said, am happy with it as Stephen reads 1408 himself!

1408 is Section 17 for anyone who wants the story as well.

Enjoyable

I enjoyed most of the stories but not all. That's not to say they were bad, just not my sort of story.
The biggest criticism would be the musical intro/endings which would be so distracting you miss some of what the narrator is saying. why have them play over the reading?

Great reading, great book

A selection of short stories, mostly horror, some involving the Dark Tower series that I absolutely love, others involving paintings that change as a murderer gets closer.

All in all, great tales, and all read by the author himself. Fantastic audiobook for Bath listening
