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 his novels

I like King's short stories better than his novels, which I often feel are too long. This and his other short story compilations allow you to enjoy his writing in more easily digestible pieces. The audio version is great for commuting because you can finish a story in 1 to 2 hours.

Mixed bag. Annoying music and sound effects.

As with most Stephen King short story collections, this was a mixed bag. Some stories were great, while some were just okay.

The good thing is you get a lot of King variety, and if there's a story you're not that into, you're onto another one shortly.

The biggest negative was that there is extremely annoying music and sound effects throughout.
