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.

    "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.

    "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!

    "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.

    "One of my favourite short story collections"

    Not only is there a bit of everything here, From twilight zone style bizarre tales of horror to real world tales of revenge. All read by a great ensemble of famous voices. The readers are really well cast. Tim Curry reading about a creepy east end London is a great fit and only adds to the atmosphere if the tale. I've listened to these stories many times and could listen to Umneys last case and Dolans cadillac again and again.

    Story
    "Great story telling from the King!"

    Classic Stephen King. It’s always a pleasure to listen to Stephen King’s books and this one is narrated by a variety of people. I like reading Stephen’s short stories because it’s a bit like dipping into a box of chocolates. Each one is different but they are all linked by his excellent storytelling. I’m not sure how this collection passed me by the first time but I enjoyed it years after release (and it was an extremely long audiobook!)
    My only complaint is the awful snippets of music between stories - they serve no purpose and detracted from the book

    Story
    "Ehhhhhh not great."

    I wanted to like this book, I like Stephen king's style of writing. He has a certain way of writing his stories that is generally enjoyable but for a lot of these stories I found that they failed to captivate and hold my attention. A lot of them felt unresolved or unfinished almost. I didn't feel excitement, suspense or fear, which is the primary reason why I purchased this audio book. There were a few stories that were really good and did entertain and would probably entertain most people. But for me there were too many stories which left me feeling disappointed and like my time was wasted. I wouldn't recommend this book.

    "Some good stories, others not so much"

    Some stories & performances (Rob Lowe) stand out as memorable but many were dire - I even found myself doing the unthinkable and skipped to the end of one after just 20 minutes, so disengaged had I become.
