It will be treasured by King fans new and old.



  • The narration from Whoopi Goldberg and Tim Curry is top-notch, they really bring the book to life. However, it's worth noting that the book mentions another story after "Head Down" but unfortunately, it is not included in this volume.
  • The essay about the little league was way over the top for me, and honestly, it made my eyes glaze over. I couldn't help it. I was expecting some gruesome death to happen, but sadly, that never occurred. Despite that, it was quite fascinating to see this piece of memorabilia related to the author's son Owen.
  • The only problem I have with this audiobook is the way the chapters are organized. In my opinion, each story should have its own chapter. The current format is confusing and doesn't make much sense.
  • Man, this book is just straight-up awful! I endured over 7 hours of what felt like absolute nothingness, desperately waiting for something remotely interesting to happen, but I eventually gave up on listening. These mini-stories were all over the place, constantly jerking you from one narrative to a completely unrelated one. It was pure torture for my ears, man. I wasted 7+ hours hoping for some kind of cohesive storyline, but it just never came. Save your credit, folks, and steer clear of this book.
  • This audiobook was absolutely dreadful. It's truly disappointing for me to admit this, but I honestly don't have any other words to describe it. I'm still in disbelief over the experience.
  • I'll never bother with another collection of King's short stories! He should've kept these ideas hidden away in the depths of a forgotten drawer. The only tale that held my interest was the one about plotting a murder. I won't spoil the rest of the story, but any devoted Stephen King fans will feel immensely let down. Save yourself the disappointment and skip this one. Absolutely dreadful!!
  • Usually, I'm a fan of King's collection of stories, but this time around they left me underwhelmed and uncertain. The narrators weren't necessarily awful, but they definitely didn't excel either. Let's face it, King should probably avoid narrating altogether, as he tends to come across as uninteresting and unengaging. Oh, and can we talk about that last hour-long story about little league baseball? Seriously, what was that doing in a King compilation? It was mind-numbingly dull, made even worse by King's lackluster delivery. Save yourself the trouble and skip this disappointing audiobook. You're welcome.
  • The inclusion of the little league essay seemed out of place. If baseball isn't your thing, feel free to skip it. I was expecting a typical "King twist" that his stories are known for, but it never materialized. I usually listen to his books during my commute, and while his storytelling skills are as great as always, the subject matter in this one was just terrible. It's puzzling why the book was divided into separate volumes considering its size.
  • I'm a huge fan of Stephen King, but I found these short stories to be a disappointment. The only one that really captured my attention was Dolan's Cadillac. If the other stories were as intriguing as that one, then it would have been worth my time and the credit. Stephen King definitely excels at novels rather than short stories.
