    I loved it, I enjoy these collections as much as his full novels.

    I waited for this one for a long time only to be let down yet again by SK, but, that's how it goes. The only one of the five even worth the time is The Road Virus. The other four stories are quite forgettable. I would not recommend this audiobook.

    Stephen King can do better,very disappointing.I haven't read anything really,really good since The Stand,my favorite.He seems to be cranking them out too fast,too carelessly.

    As usual for Stephen King, very uneven quality. Some stories are really good; others, not so much.

    The master strikes again - every story riveting in its own way. Again, King takes your imagination, spins it around & around, then lets it go to wander the horizon on its own. He gives you the idea, the rest is up to you. Best of all, though, was Roland's sidebar tale. Being borderline obsessed with the Gunslinger's trek, the hairs on the back of my neck stood at attention when "The Little Sisters of Aluria" began. I couldn't wait for the next series of discs to arrive so I could get him away from the ghouls in white. King's dedication to Roland's saga comes with its usual sense of "I've such a story to tell you, but will you believe?"

    I could not finish because it was terrible. I just didn't get it. So good luck if you do listen. Maybe someone can let me know what it is all for.

    Really creepy wonderful stories, read by several different narrators, unforgetable plot twists and details. The one read by Oliver Platt had me screaming along, his delivery and the excellent material were perfectly matched and superb.
