If It Bleeds

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Audio

Date: April 2020

Duration: 15 hours 12 minutes


From #1 New York Times bestselling author, legendary storyteller, and master of short fiction Stephen King comes an extraordinary collection of four new and compelling novellas—Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, The Life of Chuck, Rat, and the title story If It Bleeds—each pulling you into intriguing and frightening places.

The novella is a form King has returned to over and over again in the course of his amazing career, and many have been made into iconic films, including “The Body” (Stand By Me) and “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption” (Shawshank Redemption). Like Four Past Midnight, Different Seasons, and most recently Full Dark, No Stars, If It Bleeds is a uniquely satisfying collection of longer short fiction by an incomparably gifted writer.

    I never tire of Mr King’s books. Will Patton brings Holly Gibney, my favorite King character, to life! Another wonderful read.

    This book of four novellas is extremely entertaining and beautifully written. Mr. King has wonderful grasp of the English language and he uses the thoughts and feelings of his characters to create fascinating stories which, in Kingsian fashion, deal with the supernatural. He uses some characters and a village from his previous works, but it all moves creatively as the main characters deal with strange events, people and, in one novella, a rat. There are few books where one does not want the story to end, and the novella If It Bleeds is certainly one. Highly recommended.

    As with all the King books I have read or listened to this one was exceptional. I loved the idea of four novellas. It was hard to pick a favorite. The narrators did a great job. I was happy to see my favorite narrators, Stephen Weber and Will Patton do the narrating. I was also glad that he brought Holly Gibney back. She is one of my favorite characters.

  • Dorte E.

    I Think the first novel was really good. The rest of the novels did not catch my interest and I felt a big bored and disappointed.

    I will read (listen) to any thing written by him. I like the short story books for my long drives.

  • Rebecca H.

    I enjoyed 3 of the 4 stories very much... the other was alright. I really didn't like the narrator... his inflection and cadence were very distracting to me
