    "Top Dog"

    Easily the most popular book in the house. I find myself re-reading these fantastic stories over and over. Stephen King at his BEST!

    "Terrible narrator"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I couldn't stand the narrator for the very first story. It sounded like he tried to use accents for some of the characters at times and not at others. I wasn't sure who he was talking about. He had a very dull storytelling voice. I didn't listen to the rest of the audiobook, which was a first for me.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Since the book was abridged, I was disappointed the names of the short stories were not cited ahead of time. I was looking for a specific title, which ended up not being on the audiotape.

    "50 /50"

    The Raft will keep me from swimming for a while for sure. Mrs Todd's Shortcut are roads I wish I could find. The Monkey was liked by my Grandson "kind of". And Gramma rocked us both to sleep!ZZZZZZ!Overall the first two made it worth the money.

    "Pretty much stinks on ice."

    Wow i think I am going to take a king break for a bit. Each one of those stories sucked and had less shock value than Barney, Do not was your time or money on this quain little collection of crap.
