    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.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was just "okay" for a Stephen King short story.


    What was most disappointing about Stephen King’s story?

    The ending seemed uncharacteristically unimaginative.


    What aspect of Edward Herrmann and Thomas Sadoski ’s performance would you have changed?

    The reading performance was done well.


    Was Mile 81 worth the listening time?

    I think I would have picked something else for the money.
