    Story
    "A solid start to one of the best King collections"

    Nightmares and Dreamscapes may not contain much of the truly grotesque amd terrifying short stories constant readers recall from Night Shift and Skeleton Crew, but like the truly great King collections it gives us a glimpse of the various kinds of stories King weaves with singular voice. For whatever reason, maybe to make more money, the book is split into three parts - not a major problem, but when most of the other collections are bigger files with a bigger price tag, it bothers me that I had to spend 3 credits on this instead of one. But that's a slight on Audible, not King. Collection 1 is full of great narrators - Tim Curry in top form on "Crouch End" - but Yeardley Smith was not a great choice for "Rainy Season". Aside from the poor sound quality of her recording, it's impossible to feel the real horror in this story when you can't divorce the mental image of Lisa Simpson reading it (she names the Maine accent, though). King fans and casual audiobook listeners won't be disappointed, just those of us who have memberships with Audible.

    "Great Book"

    Perhaps the best in this Set Dolan's Cadillac and Umneys Last Case, the rest are good, but nothing special imo, well read and Narration was on point, overall, Worth the read.

    "Not his best work."

    I usually really like Stephens short stories. They even tend to be my favorites, but these were not that great. We all strike out occasionally I guess.
