Publisher's Summary

A star-studded cast of readers presents unabridged tales of horror and suspense from master storyteller Stephen King.

The Stephen King Amusement Park - an unnerving experience, with rides every which way to hell...and a few to glory.

A solitary finger pokes out of a drain. Novelty teeth turn predatory. The Nevada desert swallows a Cadillac. Meanwhile, the legend of Castle Rock returns...and grows on you. What does it all mean? What else could it mean? Stephen King is here with a powerful collection of stories - a vast, many-chambered cave of a volume.

The long reach of Stephen King's imagination will take you on a roller coaster to places you've never been before. You will lose sleep. But Stephen King, writing to beat the devil, will do your dreaming for you.

    Story
    "Stories fantastic, music terrible,"

    great writing and performance, but no idea why the incidental music was put in. Unnecessary, even if it had been good music, but seems to seep in at pointless moments, adding nothing except mild irritation.

    Story
    "The soul of wit"

    Let others pray for world peace: I simply pray for Stephen King to live line enough to write another volume of his fantastic short stories. For me, one of the signs of a great story is when you find the plot and characters coming to mind in the days after you finish reading them. This happened (and is still happening) with this collection. The sight of road works now always makes me think of a teacher with murder on his mind. I loved this collection - and what a fantastic team of narrators!

    Story
    "Like a box of chocolates..."

    At the risk of quoting a famous movie line, a book of short stories is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your going to get until you listen to them, in this box there are some delicious and tasty morsels, and equally some which may turn your stomach.
    But go ahead and try and if you take a bite and don't like it, you can always put it back in the box!

    Story
    "Good overall, but a mixed bag"
    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Some of the narrators are just great, and Stephen King himself crops up more than once to add his own contributions, which is a great touch. In fact, so does his wife, Tabitha King. Rob Lowe stood out as a particularly good narrator, and overall the contributions from such as Whoopi Goldberg and Matthew Broderick added a really nostalgic 80s touch that I really enjoy. The stories weren't all as tight as, say, The Night Shift, but it's definitely worth a listen. Recommended - with reservations.

    "Another SK Jamboree of Frights."

    Stephen King brings us his fourth instalment of short stories and they still deliver the creeps.
    Highly entertaining from start to finish.
