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.

One of Kings Best

Fantastic set of classic short stories. An excellent array of talented readers as well. Classic King
Only small downside is the sometimes overbearing/poor sound effects and music that are sometimes thrown in strange places.

What a rip-off.

Bought 2 volumes expecting the usual brilliant King works and WHAT a disappointment. Out of the 14+ hours in the volumes, only 3 were worth listening to and those weren’t very good. I think King scraped together his detritus and then dumped it out not in one but broken into 2 volumes. I guess to make more money but. Wow. Sad.

why is this in parts?

first, this is an amazing collection of stories. All performances were good. however its abundantly clear that they have divided this single book into 3 parts for some reason.

It's ok

the first one has better and more king style stories. even if the last one was about his kids little league(which I enjoyed listening to throughly). but this one felt like the least of his style, except for the last two. I thought those were superb 10/10. now onto volume 3
