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.

Better Than Volume 1

This volume was better than the first. All of the narrators did a great job and did not detract from any of the stories. Looking forward to volume III.

loving the celebrity voices

Having professional voice actors is one thing, but having celebrities read the stories is a huge plus for me!

Mostly Amazing

Each story was wonderful. Kathy, Matthew, Tim Curry, & SK did great with their narrations but the others failed to command attention. Boring voices maybe? Overall this audiobook was worth listening to and wonderful.

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
