I enjoyed the book.
they live inside us and sometimes they win.”
― Stephen King
A collection of twenty stories, and a and explanation of their genesis by the master, most of them have been published earlier in a variety of publication, so this saves you the time and some money of finding this stories in anthologies or ebook singles. most of them are inspired by the style of other writers or in the style of a writer Mr King will explain this and other reasons at the start of every story. These are all short stories and there is certainly no novelas, which is where Stephen King excels, but there is plenty of variety from horror to humor and some mixed flavoured ones. I found this collection to have an edge bitterness and nihilism that is usually or not so prevalent on other of his books. The americana and the sweet remembrances of childhood are not present in this volume.
A good read with a little bit for every taste, some interesting stylistic exercises and plenty of dread to go around.

A varied and enjoyable collection. Well read stories, well cast narrators. Some gems in here.

Mix of narrators was good. The Intros from King was a nice touch. King's work is odd, I don't quite enjoy the stories because of the dark and sometimes twisted themes but it intrigues. it compells me to keep listening. How does he do that???

perfect for those who commute. The weekly drive up and down the Hume Freeway is made much more bearable with this, and the stories are very good. Nice touch of horror and suspense.
