"Hypnotic." (The New York Times Book Review)
"To find the secret of his success, you have to compare King to Twain and Poe - King's stories tap the roots of myth buried in all our minds." (Los Angeles Times)
"Buy Different Seasons. I promise you'll enjoy it.... He creates people who are so alive, you can almost sense them." (Minneapolis Star-Tribune)
I love to listen to many novels in the star wars series,Stephen king novels, history, and biographies as well.
I would recommend this book to a friend, because the stories are great, and the reader is one of the best I have ever heard.
All of the novellas in the book are great, but the shawshank redemption is my favorite out of all of them.
Frank was fantastic at first person stories. He was also good at making you feel like you were really in the novel he was reading. That is why he was and audio award winner in my opinion.
The ending of apt pupil was very surprising to me.
I would recommend any book read by Frank Muller.
Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption
The Breathing Method
Excellent book one of Kings best
Absolutely loved it
Love books, listen to 3-4 books a week, thriller and true crimes favorite.
I already have these titles, should have read summary better. if you don't already have them, then this is for you.
these stories were amazing, the shawshank redemption and stand by me stuck very closely to the original stories so there isn't much learned about these but the other two were great and very captivating
I got this book mainly for Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank redemption, however apt pupil ended up being my favorite. all the stories were worthwhile. I highly recommend this book it is on my favorites list and I'm sure I'll revisit before long.
This is simply a must listen if you are a Stephen King fan. Great value for your money the first three stories were pure listening joy and worthy of five stars. The last story is a dud!
I've think King is at his best in the short novel form. The lean format works to his strengths and each of these stories is potent and impactful, likely to leave a lasting impression on the listener. I loved Different Seasons.
Frank Muller's performance is as good as it gets.
