    Just After Sunset - call it dusk, call it twilight, it's a time when human intercourse takes on an unnatural cast, when nothing is quite as it appears, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and living daylight can be scared right out of you. It's the perfect time for Stephen King.

    Overall

    These stories are more like King's olders stories, which I definitely prefer. First narrator isn't that great, but the others are wonderful...especially Mare reading The Gingerbread Girl. Oh, beware, I downloaded The Gingerbread Girl and Stationary Bike way before this new book came out...so if you've already heard those and don't want to listen again, you'll have to fast forward-not an easy feat on an ipod! But Gingerbread Girl was sooo worth listening to for a second time!

    This magnificent audio collection showcases the many sides of Poe's writing personality. The gothic macabre tales are well represented, including "The Tell Tale Heart", "The Cask of Amontillado", and "The Fall of the House of Usher". Supernatural adventure also appears, in "M.S. Found in a Bottle" and "A Descent into the Maelstrom". The science-fiction side of mesmerism is demonstrated in "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar".

    Overall

    Don't get me wrong, I am a big Edgar Allan Poe fan. But this narrator drove me crazy! He was just too dramatic for me. Way, way over the top. I'd downloaded a couple of other short stories and listened to those before I started this one. But I had to stop listening to this after about an hour into it. Maybe I'll be able to listen again in short spurts, but, for me, the over-dramatic reads really took away from Poe's work. It's dramatic on it's own.

    For the three years Shadow spent in prison, all he wanted was to get back to the loving arms of his wife and stay out of trouble for the rest of his life. But days before his release, he learns that his wife has been killed in an accident, and his world becomes a colder place.

    Joseph says: "Amazing, powerful book about America."
    "Awesome Narration...Great Story"
    Overall

    This is the first time I have ever looked up a narrator to see what else he/she has read. Absolutely wonderful narration. Excellent story as well! 3/4 of the way through it seemed to lag and drag on, but it came back with a great sort of surprise ending! I would definitely recommend!

    No matter where Kevin Delevan aims his camera, it produces a photograph of an enormous, ugly, vicious looking dog. In each successive picture, the menacing creature draws nearer to the flat surface of the Polaroid film as if it intends to break through. When old Pop Merrill, the town's sharpest trader, gets wind of this phenomenon, he envisions a way to profit from it.

    Consummate master of his craft, Stephen King has kept millions awake past midnight shivering at tales that probe the shadows and reveal the dark side. Now listeners can chill to this second dramatic unabridged production of short stories from his best selling book, Night Shift. It brings Stephen King's demonic stories fully to life - and the terror even closer to home.

    The narrator was very good. Narrator did the best on The Man Who Loved Flowers and Jerusalem's Lot. Stories are classic Stephen King. If you're a King fan you won't be dissappointed!

  • The Library Policeman: Three Past Midnight

    Set in Junction City, Iowa, The Library Policeman is the story of Sam Peebles, a middle-aged businessman who happens to have some overdue books. It seems a minor offense - but not to Junction City's malevolent monster of a librarian. What follows is spine-tingling suspense as only Stephen King can deliver it.

    Overall

    I really liked the narrator for this story. He changed his voice very well and appropriately. The story was pretty good too. But just a word of warning, there was an absolutely terrible child rape scene in this story. If you were reading the book, you could just skip over it and go on, but here it's ridiculously graphic. This is the first time I'd ever really been disappointed with Stephen King. It is relevent to the story, but it did not have to be so long and graphic. I listen to it on my ipod and it's sort of hard to fast forward past it...So, just a word of warning.
