    I like my horror, techno-thrillers, and science fiction. Which is why Jurassic Park and The Lost World are 2 of my favorite books ever!

    "The audiobook that started it all..."

    I used to own N&D Vol. II on cassette and listened to these tales as bedtime stories, so I am completely biased when expressing my affection for them. I can say, having heard these stories over and over again, The Doctor's Case is my personal favorite. For those who aren't familiar, it's actually a Sherlock Holmes story, very well read by Tim Curry. I also loved Sneakers, read by David Cronenberg. Ferris Buel- I mean Matthew Broderick, Kathy Bates, Jerry Garcia, Lindsay Crouse, and Eve Belgarian(?) contribute their vocal talents to the other stories, which range from life advice( My Pretty Pony) to silly horror (The Moving Finger). Nevertheless, I really enjoyed most of these stories, but I have a very soft spot for Home Delivery. This one, about an end of the world scenario (not the only one in this volume), is read by the Master of Horror himself, Stephen King. Some people don't care for his narration. I LOVE listening to King talk. Check Needful Things if you want a sample. This collection is the reason I listen to audiobooks today.

    "A marked improvement"

    After the hit and miss quality volume, I was hesitant to see what volume two had in store but thankfully it collects better stories and better quality recordings. The standouts here are The End of the Whole Mess by Matthew Broderick and Home Delivery read by King himself. Kathy Bates and Tim Curry also turn in excellent performances while Cronenberg whispers his way through Sneakers, but it is still a great listen.

    "Great Book and Narration"

    Volume II, Perhaps the best in this Set Doctor's Case, The Moving Finger and The End of the Whole Mess, the rest are good, but nothing special imo, Narration was on point, overall, Worth the read. Definitely worth the listen

    "An excellent collection of short stories for this second in three books!!!"

    This collection of short stories I would dare to say was more enjoyable then the first, which I also thoroughly enjoyed.

    Special mention of "The Chattering Teeth", "The Moving Finger", "Sneakers" and "Home Delivery".

    Now onto the third volume!

    "eh"

    I thought some of the stories were good but most were a bit lackluster. I think I'll stick with the novels.

    "Not as good as the first"

    Some of the stories are far better then others, but an enjoyable listen, all the same... My particular favorite has been the Sherlock Holmes tale :D

    "Very good book"
    Would you listen to Nightmares & Dreamscapes, Volume II again? Why?

    I usually only listen to a book once, but I would enjoy listening to this again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nightmares & Dreamscapes, Volume II?

    It was a treat that Steven King, narrated one of the stories himself.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved Nightmares & Dreamscapes, Volume I and I felt that Volume II was even better.

    Story
    "Not as good as 1st one at all!"

    I disagree with reviewers who think this one is better than first Volume - it's not! I really enjoyed most of the first volume. This one - one story maybe sort of. The readers are first rate! but the stories are not good. Only enjoyed King's attempt at Sherlock Holmes and last story read by King himself about zombies. Rest are not good! Weirdo ideas with endings that make you irritated.
