Publisher's Summary

"The face of the man in the black suit grows ever clearer, ever closer, and I remember every word he said. I don't want to think of him, but I can't help it, and sometimes at night my old heart beats so hard and so fast I think it will tear itself right clear of my chest."A haunting recollection of a mysterious boyhood event, The Man in the Black Suit, read by John Cullum, leads off this masterful collection from Stephen King.
Other dark tales include: All That You Love Will Be Carried Away, read by Peter Gerety, in which a man checks into a Lincoln, Nebraska Motel 6 to find the meaning in his life; That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French, read by Becky Ann Baker, presents the ultimate case of deja vu; and The Death of Jack Hamilton, read by Arliss Howard, a blistering tale of Depression-era outlaws on the run.
Whether writing about encounters with the dead or the near-dead, or about the mundane dreads of life, Stephen King's The Man in the Black Suit is a gripping, intense listen.

Not Your Classic Stephen King

The thing I like about Stephen King's short stories is that they never fail to satisfy that craving for a good yarn. Sure, they are sometimes scary beyond all rhyme or reason, but more often than not, they are just great listening. In the Man in the Black Suit, King creates a central character that is both sympathetic and believable, and a villain so dark you tremble. But the narration and the storytelling are so good, you almost (emphasis on almost) forget to be scared. There is a story about John Dillinger that is about the best short story I've ever heard, and in Everything You Love Will Be Carried Away, King leaves you spellbound and wondering, and laughing for hours at all the collected bathroom humor built into the story. In "That Feeling You Can Only Say in French," you get the feeling you're watching an old Twilight Zone re-run, or maybe an old episode of Star Trek. You keep hoping the characters will recognize what you see so clearly. King is gifted in letting you see clearly what the characters cannot see, and in making you want them to see it. This is a great collection of stories and one not to be missed.

Uneven but enjoyable

Not every story included here is stellar, but those that stood out were exceptionally suspenseful and well-crafted. Well worth the listen, but I couldn't give it 5 stars given some weaker material.

Classic Stephen King shorts!
