Publisher's Summary

He’s a man with a body under siege - and the willingness to proceed with a cure so miraculous all one can do is gasp - in this chilling story by New York Times bestselling author Adam Haslett.

After years of traditional treatments and therapies, Derrick still suffers from pain ineluctable enough that it has become his identity. Then he hears of an exclusive, very private New York clinic that promises relief. It comes highly recommended by a friend. The multisession remedy unfolds as a sensorial wonder that’s so illuminating it’s enough to bring tears to Derrick’s eyes. It’s all working so well. So unexpectedly well.

Adam Haslett’s The Remedy is part of Dark Corners, a collection of seven heart-stopping short stories by bestselling authors who give you so many new reasons to be afraid. Each story can be read in a single sitting. Or, if you have the nerve, you can listen all by yourself in the dark.

Pretty good.

This was a decently-executed short story with enough happening to where I didn't feel the need to shut it off. There are a few short stories that take over half the length to get anything described. This was definitely not like that; now, I'm not going to say it was a perfect short story, because it definitely wasn't. I did, however, completely enjoy myself for this short read. The narration was great! So, the story will get a B from me and the narration will get a A-.

hopeless

Usually I don't bother with a bad review, but I felt this story deserved it. I would have given it 0 stars if I had the option.

Good short story

This was nice to pass an hour away. I don’t regret listening to it, but wouldn’t say it was anything remarkable. It was free and included in my Amazon Prime Reading options. I will try the rest of the series since they are short.

What a waste of time

The ending is kinda predictable, but still makes you wonder why you wasted an hour of your life listening to it.

PSYCHO SELF ABSORBED CRYBABY

I guess Im not into PSYCHO WHINING SELF ABSORBED CRYBABIES. Only looking at their half full lives, spending a fortune trying to find out whats wrong. Suck it up, and help those that cant help themselves.

waste of time

I listened to all of 15 mimutes and just not interesting. I couldn't quite get past the stereotyping and political garbage. If I want to listen to diatribe, I'll turn on the television.

Okay story; good narrator

I thought the story itself was 'okay'. The narrator was good, though, and it was an enjoyable enough story that kept me interested while I had my lunch.
