Some King's best short stories

These stories are great when you dont want to spend hours listening to one of his epics, which are also enjoyable. You can listen for a short time and still get the whole story and you get more King variety

Really good listen! Fully enjoyable!

This is the third and final volume of this collection of short stories.
Really Enjoyable and the performances were top notch.

"The night flier" seems to have been strung throughout a few of the tales which I liked a lot.

Stephen King is always a winner.

I read this and many other of his books in past years and listening to it read out loud was wonderful and the people who read the stories all did a great job.

Typical excellent listen from Stephen King

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes - Stephen King is always a pleasure to read/listen to, and it is good to have the readings broken up into short stories rather than one huge novel.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Probably Clark in 'Rock and Roll Heaven' - we can all emphasize with getting lost on back roads - especailly before the days of GPS.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Very good - the narration made the stories come to life - even adding some sound effects, which was cool.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Pieces of Nightmares

Any additional comments?

As with most Steven King material, this did not disappoint.

SK short stories always worth revisiting!

Every time I revisit King' s short stories it feels like bumping into an old friend who I forgot used to mean so much to me.

The best saved for last

As far as the quality of recordings are concerned, volume 3 is the best volume in the Nightmares & Dreamscapes collection. I still find myself wishing that the entire book had been collected and one volume has done with Skeleton Crew Comma just after Sunset and others, but the talents found here are not wasted.

Not as Good as Volume I/II

While I enjoyed listening to the stories encapsulated into this audio Rendition it it falls behind in story's with the only Highlight of the Story (Sorry, Right Number) using an ensemble cast, excellent readers still highly recommended.
