Harold Parkette disposes of his lawnmower after his neighbor's cat dies a gruesome death. But the "Lawnmower Man" he hires to do the job proves more than Harold bargained for. A police officer begins to suspect that a series of grisly industrial accidents is no coincidence in "The Mangler." At "Quitter's Inc." a smoker soon discovers that they'll truly stop at nothing to make sure their customers kick the habit. A betrayed husband goes out on "The Ledge" when he takes vengeance into his own hands. And in "Sometimes They Come Back," the concept of alumni is given new meaning when a high school teacher, haunted by the past, is assigned 3 new students who seem eerily familiar.

Yes. I enjoyed the different voices of the characters. The narrator did an excellent job of expressing the emotions of the characters.
I just like Stephen King.
The voices of the characters.
Classic Stephen King
This book is bad, it rambles on about some guy who seems to be a recovering psycho that slipping back into being crazy. It doesn't flow well, and is just way to wierd to hold my attention. I downloaded it for free and it wasn't worth the price. I admit that I have only listened to one other Steven King book (Dreamcatcher) and am not that impressed with this genre but at least Dreamcatcher had a very understandible plot that was easy to follow.
I am a big fan of Stephen King, but this is far from his best work. The Mangler and the Ledge are standouts in this book, and were enjoyable enough. If you are a die-hard King fan and you've read most of his books, this is worth a listen, but you could randomly pick any other book by King and you'd probably find a better read than this.
"What happened to Stephen King"
Usually I like Stephen King, but this is almost the worst stories I have ever read.
I hope he wrote it as a joke
