This volume is a collection of 14 short stories written by Stephen King. These tales that include the much-touted Internet-download phenomenon, "Riding the Bullet"; "The Little Sisters of Eluria," a Dark Tower prequel; the novella-length title story; and "L.T's Theory of Pets," King's personal favorite within the group, which was previously available only in audio. Not only do the action-based plots and engaging narratives hold up well within the realm of King's work, but tales like the 1996 O. Henry Award-winning Nathaniel Hawthorne homage, "The Man in the Black Suit," show us King at his literary best. An added bonus for fans is King's story-by-story annotation, in which he chronicles the event, thought, or image that served as his creative impetus.… (altro)

The stories in this book that I liked I really liked and then the rest were just... okay. 14 is a lot of stories to get through but it was a nice change of pace coming from the usual 1500 page monsters by SK.

I really liked the little sisters of Eluria - I wish there were more short story Roland adventures as well as The Man In The Black Suit. I liked how it felt really old and involved fishing.

The rest of the stories were just okay - I dont think i'd listen to any of them again. Riding the silver bullet was particularly not interesting to me. ( )

I remember reading these for sure:

~Autopsy Room Four 3*
~The Little Sisters of Eluria 3*
~LT's Theory of Pets - 2* I read on audio CD. Author read the short story in front of a live audience. Entertaining enough to read for a bit. It ends with a "realistic horror" part out of no where.

As always, King's short stories entertain me. ( )

Overall, I would rate this collection of short stories from Stephen King a 3.25 when all is said and done. I seem to like King's short stories a little better than his novel as a general statement, but that definitely wasn't true for these. Maybe it has to do with when he wrote them? I don't know, but I can tell you that I had a difficult time focusing on the stories while they were being read.

Everything's Eventual - 3.75* This story had an interesting concept (a teen has strange powers that involve killing things). The narrator of this story did a good job keeping me interested, but I wanted more overall. There were some parts that felt pretty mundane and I couldn't figure out from listening to this if this was supposed to a confession in a letter to someone of if he was talking to someone... I just wanted more overall.

Autopsy Room Four - 3.75* This story was pretty good too. A guy comes conscious and has to try to figure out where he is - an autopsy room. After quickly figuring that out, he needs to find a way to communicate to the people who are about to perform his autopsy that he is not in fact dead. But surprise surprise, he can't move anything at all. I didn't like the narrator as much in this story, nor did I like any of the characters.

Little Sisters of Eluria - 3* I couldn't really get into this story. It sounds like this was an in between story of the Dark Towers series, which might have been where a little of my confusion came in, but overall this story didn't intrigue me as much and that parts that did intrigue me (the sisters) weren't given much background. I wanted to know more about their history. I didn't feel very invested in the main character either.

Lucky Quarter - 3.25 This one had an interesting concept, but once again, I wanted more. What was the history of the quarter, what was the main character going to do with it? Was there going to be any bad outcomes from using the quarter and becoming lucky?

The Road Virus Heads North - 3.25 Once again, just didn't feel invested. If this was a novella versus a short story, I think I could have become more invested in the concept and the characters.

The stories are good but not.consistent with the flow mastery that King normally brings. ( )
