    Todd Bowden is an apt pupil. Good grades, good family, a paper route. But he is about to meet a different kind of teacher: Mr. Dussander. Todd knows all about Dussander's darl past. The torture. The death. The decades-old manhunt Dussander has escaped to this day. Yet Todd doesn't want to turn him in. Todd wants to know more. Much more. He is about to learn the real meaning of power - and the seductive lure of evil.

    Story
    (490)

    At Mile 81 on the Maine turnpike is a boarded up rest stop, a place where high school kids drink and get into the kind of trouble high school kids have always gotten into. It’s the place where Pete Simmons goes when his older brother, who’s supposed to be looking out for him, heads off to the gravel pit to play “paratroopers over the side”. Pete, armed only with the magnifying glass he got for his 10th birthday, finds a discarded bottle of vodka in the boarded up burger shack and drinks enough to pass out.

    Mary Z says: "Nailed it!"
    "No one does it like King - don't miss this!"

    Story
    Where does Mile 81 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorites. I'd not read this, so it was a double treat.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Creepy - sucked me right in.


    What about Edward Herrmann and Thomas Sadoski ’s performance did you like?

    Edward Herrmann nailed the Southern judge accent - the ending of "The Dune" gave me chills.

    (273)

    Reeling from a painful break-up, English instructor and avid book lover Wesley Smith is haunted by his ex-girlfriend's parting shot: "Why can't you just read off the computer like everyone else?" He buys an e-book reader out of spite, but soon finds he can use the device to glimpse realities he had never before imagined, discovering literary riches beyond his wildest dreams...and all-too-human tragedies that surpass his most terrible nightmares.

    Everything - well done.
