This is one of my favorite King short stories but I was disappointed by the performance. At several points during the recording, there is a heavy handed sax driven muzak playing in the background - it makes the performance come off as cheesy and makes the reader difficult to understand. As for Roberts - he reads through the material very quickly and he often sounds like he has the microphone too close to his mouth and is often hard to understand. I tried setting the ipod to slower playback but it just made him sound drunk. I set the eq on the ipod to spoken voice and that seemed to help a little - although by that point I may have just been used to it. The fact that this was so short was probably the only reason I stuck it out until the end.
