    Recently divorced writer Mort Rainey is alone at Tashmore Lake - that is, until a figure named John Shooter arrives, pointing an accusing finger.

    I did not see the ending to this one coming...maybe I am naive, but King is so good at very descriptive storytelling that you get so engrossed in the characters that you feel like you are right there experiencing everything yourself! What can I say about James Woods!!! He was the perfect match for telling this story! When the movie came out and I watched it, even though I love Depp he couldn't do it justice after hearing Woods tell the story. I wished they had Woods do the movie! I highly recommend this audio book!!!!

    "I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922", the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

    Parusski says: "Eerie, honest, frightening!"
    "Great stories!!! King does it again!"
    Overall

    I love all of the stories, especially Big Driver. I actually read the novel before buying the audible version. I would have loved to have heard Kathy Bates perform the two stories from the women's perspectives and I am still trying to decide if I like Wasson's narration. Having said that, I still highly recommend this book!

    Dick Morrison's life has become a nightmare of addictions, filling his days with overeating, overworking, and smoking way too much. When an old friend tells him about a surefire way to quit, he's more than willing to give it a shot. But what Dick doesn't know is that Quitters, Inc. demands a high price from anyone who strays from their rigid rules-like a few volts of electricity for the nearest and dearest... or maybe a missing thumb?

    Gia says: "Love the story, hated the narration."

    I love this story and saw the movie with James Woods, it was great! I did not like the narration at all. I just can't get into it and can't seem to get past the first 5-10 minutes.

    There's a place along Interstate 50 that some call the loneliest place on Earth. It's known as Desperation, Nevada. It's not a very nice place to live. It's an even worse place to die. Let the battle against evil begin.

    Swad says: "Good"
    "Great narration by Kathy Bates!"
    Overall

    This is a neat story and Kathy Bates does an excellent job narrating it! I enjoyed this much more than the movie.

    Escape from her macabre marriage is not as easy as fleeing to a new city, picking a new name, finding a new job, and lucking out with a new man. Not with a husband like Norman...

    Mrs. Margaret says: "AWESOME"
    "REAL LIFE horror story!"
    Overall

    This is truly a HORRIFIC story because it could be happening to anyone you know. Again...King is at his best! I remember when I first heard the beginning of this story how mad & upset I was at Norman!!! A story had not made me feel that way in a long time. I have a lot of audio books and Blair Brown was a perfect choice for Rose. I also was pleasantly surprised to hear Norman's character read by a male voice (King himself). That added so much more to the listening experience. My Husband who doesn't read anything that isn't automotive related LOVES this story. We played our cassette tapes so much that they literaly broke apart. (That is how long we have been listening to this story.) I was so thrilled to be able to buy this version for my Epic 4G!!! I highly recommend this audiobook!
