Holter's reading pretty good, though he seems hamstrung with the myriad of voices that are needed. Still, he acquits himself well enough in story that isn't very interesting. This suspense yarn is bolstered by a great psychological profile of the main character and King's flourishes that lend everything an extra pop.
Mare does very well with the story, even modifying her voice to show injury to the main character that impedes her speech. The only drawback is her attempt at vocalizing the killer, which comes off a little histrionic. It's a fine listen, with King's vocals relaying the same matter-of-fact bristles of late life unhappiness and tragedy. A tough, no-nonsense reading helps boost this story from forgettable to solid.

Another excellent character helps the plot to down easier, even with a some what disappointing ending. The story isn't much, though King continues his rash of superlative character building. But the character has nothing to do, so this one is forgettable. The reading is serviceable, yet fails to mesh voice with character.

There's a lot of haunting ideas and the main character has some of the most captivating asides. There's one anecdotal story here that was perfect; King knows how to make us uncomfortable in the most delicious ways! This story, published for the first time in this collection, is another King tip of the hat to Weird fiction and it stands with the best of the lot. King May have been thinking Machen here, but Lovecraft fans will find a lot of tropes perfected by the master himself. The story concerns a man seeking help for OCD and explaining the fantastic reason while he's suddenly developed the condition.
The build up of the story, which features the titular character describing his life an experiences is an extraordinarily insightful break down of OCD, only with a supernatural twist. This one is so good, it almost makes you mad that King can still wield the pen with this much precision, insight and creativity. The reading is quite good as well, though I felt it could've been done sufficiently with one less person Maybe even two less.
Still, if one story deserves this grand treatment, "N. A phone call from beyond effects a recent widow in this one but there's not enough to it. Jill reads the story well, but when the characters spend the entire story sitting to the side, never being proactive, it's hard to get invested. A strong character buoys a story of betrayal, anger and confusion that takes a bit more toned down view of organized religion than King is known for.
Not a scary story, just one that has a strong emotional pull. Doesn't really fit with the rest of the story, but it's nice to see this classic makes its way into an official collection. Holter's reading is solid.

Both the good and the bad sides to them. Good story that is helped immensely by King's ability to craft nearly poetic passages in a narrative. Well read, if not spectacularly emotive.
But this one's a knock out! The set up had already made me uncomfortable with one character spouting hate speech, but once the story fully unfolds, it becomes a suspenseful story that is well crafted underneath all the nasty stuff. Another story that is superbly read. King also includes end notes, which I'm sure all his readers appreciate, and and few words from King about writing.
I love these inclusions when read by King. This is a collection for those that love King's immaculate ability to build up believable, captivating characters. King is a Master Story Teller. It goes without saying, though I'm going to say it because it's so obvious from all my King reviews, that I am definitely a fanboy of Mr.
With the internet and the chance to post reviews ad nauseum, a lot of reviewers rip apart books and even write paragraph after paragraph, ruining the story and the plots. I think a lot of these people fancy themselves "authors" and feel the need to prove it by writing short stories about someone else's work. My review of this book like all my reviews of Mr.
King's books is short and sweet. I have never read anything from Mr.
