    "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.

    Story

    A series of stories about generally good people pushed to do bad things for their own reasons (greed, revenge, survival, etc.). That idea isn't new exactly, but SK puts it to good work in these stories. With the exception of "Fair Extension" they are all even plausible, and "A Good Marriage" was adapted from real life events as SK notes in his remarks at the end. I think the most obnoxious thing was the product placement throughout the stories. Vehicles are one thing but there's really no need for name brands to explain a sandwich and drink or other minutia. I really don't like advertising stuffed into the pages of my books (regardless of format).

    I enjoyed the narrators. The only thing I found somewhat lacking was the expression of emotions vocally. Their reading voices were great (I especially liked Jessica Hecht), but there were times the anger, desperation, fear, etc just wasn't there. Or at least not as I thought it should be. However it does not take away from the overall experience.
