Dropout drifter Hall has crossed the country doing whatever comes his way. Working the "Graveyard Shift" in a decaying Massachusetts mill under a bullying foreman is just one more leg in his crazy quilt journey, until it leads to a nether realm where the Rat Queen defends her empire. Things are never as they seem, as "The Man Who Loved Flowers" proves one perfect Spring evening on the sidewalks of New York. In "The Last Rung on the Ladder" beautiful Kitty hangs from dizzying heights above a hideous fate and, in "Night Surf," a group of teenagers on a late summer beach watch the world end in a gruesome, viral whimper. The mind-numbing secrets of "Jerusalem's Lot" wait in an ancestral mansion where blood binds the Boone family to a timeless history of unspeakable evil.

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!
These are the "oldies but goodies" of the King short stories. I wish Night Shift was all in one volume but the production values are well worth the cost.
Book is great for road trips if your a King fan. Most stories are standard King others give you the "humm?" look. Over all great short book.
These are possibly the best stories Stephen King has ever written. Almost every story has been converted to a movie. Night Surf was an early version of The Stand. The highlight is Jerusalem's Lot , a beautiful short.

I got this book because it had so many good reviews on the website but overall, I thought this book was just okay but then again, maybe it's just me?
