I thought this book was fantastic. I could not pick a favorite story. Each one had an element that made you grin, shake your head, or think "he's back". A few gave me chills, a couple made me think deeply. One brought tears to my eyes. Several made me laugh. All of these stories were so much like the good old Stephen King, and all the narrators were dead on. I recommend this to any one who thinks King has lost his touch. I hated to finish this book.
Wow - this book is TERRIFIC!!! I can't stop listening in the car. It's reminiscent of the "old" King books and stories. VERY enjoyable; hope he writes more like this!!
There were a couple of the short stories that were worth the listen but overall there were more that just weren't that great. Ended up wishing I had used my credit for something else.
A good collection of stories of everyday life, but naturally, with a macabre bent. Stephen King knows how to take middle class/upper-middle class problems - almost boring by definition - and give them the twist that will fill you with unease. Things are not what the seem. None of the stories were gory, but all of them messed with your mind. The sheer volume of blood spilled in horror stories usually keeps me away, but this one wasn't so bad. The stories all had a long buildups, but mostly, I was only aware of the mounting tension, and of an intense desire to know the outcome.
My favorite story was probably "N", but that's just because I had already downloaded "Stationary Bike" when it was released. But I also really liked "MUTE" which was narrated by Skip Sudduth. It was weird - I was convince that it was Anthony Lapaglia narrating, but the telling was just perfect.
If you like Stephen King, you can't go wrong with this one!
Long time retired, love to travel and spend time in motorhome. Audible allows me to enjoy top notch books while driving or relaxing.
Every story in Just after Sunset shared the same Stephen King excitement. Can always count on Mr. King to produce great fiction
Be aware... a large portion of this book consists of The Gingerbread Girl and Stationary Bike. These are two short stories that I previously purchased and did not realize that they were being recycled. I did like the stories that were new however, thus the 3 rating.
I love Stephen King's books, but this one was a HUGE disappointment. I agree with a previous reviewer who said that it seemed to have been written by a 12 year-old.
I'm a long time SK printed page reader...he's the only writer who can actually scare me or gross me out on a page. These stories are OK, some decent, some decent but overly long and a couple downright boring. A couple gems but overall not particularly creepy or enthralling.
