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)

3 Awesome Stories

3 Excellent Stories. Everything's Eventual, Autopsy Room 4 and The Little Sisters of Auloria (I don't know if I spelled that correctly). The other two are good, but not King's best. The Little Siter's is a must read for Dark Tower fans, which I am. The only complant I have is that there were only 5 stories, where the book has 14. I especially think they should have done The Man in the Black Suit. It is definately worth listening to for the 3 stories mentioned.

Skip this one

I love Stephen King, but this is not his best. Two of the stories are mildly interesting, the others are totally forgetable. Go with "Lisey's Story" instead.
