Hot and cold with this collection. There were some interesting stories, such as the full-on Lovecraftian Crouch's End and the Holmes/Watson story, The Doctor's Case, that seemed to capture Doyle, and also remain quite silly at the same time.

None of the stories creeped me out as King is normally so good at doing, and some of these stories seemed overlong and/or phoned in.

Interestingly, the one I essentially ignored (read, but didn't really even pay attention to) the first time around, Head Down where King narrates a series of games his son Owen participated in at the age of 12, shows the most passion, and some of the tightest writing of the entire collection. I found myself quite enjoying it this time around.

In fact, I would go so far as to say this was worst of all the King collections. I hadn't really even taken this collection from the shelf after reading it for the first time back in 93. Now I remember why. ( )

I’ve had this book since university and I can’t remember if I read it back then or not. I decided to (re)read. As with all short story collections, I liked some better than others. There were a few I really liked in the first half and I was debating about rating this higher than other short story collections I’ve read in the past, but some of the stories in the second half brought my rating down a bit.

I think something I’m not crazy about with short stories is the energy it takes to move from one to the other so quickly. I always knew that I often didn’t like how short they were because I’d just be “getting’ into the story, when it would end and move on to the next. It was reading this that it occurred to me it takes “energy” to start with a new story so often – you have to get to know new characters and a new plot.

Some of the stories I really liked included Dolce’s Cadillac, Chattery Teeth, You Know They Got a Hell of a Band (if I hadn’t read this one before, I had definitely heard about it), Rainy Season, Sorry Right Number (this was more of a screenplay, but I quite liked it). His last “story” was more of a diary/journal (nonfiction) about his son’s Little League baseball team and a successful season they had. He included an interesting note at the end with a bit of information behind some of the stories. ( )

~ Dolan's Cadillac - 3*

I heard my name and I was confused as to how it was being used. haha I learned a new word: Chorine [kohr-een]- a woman who dances in a chorus line
"It was what looked like twelve Vegas chorines crowded in with one old boy who was wearing the biggest cowboy hat and the darkest Foster Grants I'd ever seen. One of the chorines mooned me as the green Cadillac went fishtailing onto the detour."

I've listened twice. I did it the second time because I learned it was narrated by Rob Lowe and I had no idea so I decided to listen again. He does do a great job narrating it.

~ Chattery Teeth 3* read by Kathy Bates
~ The Moving Finger 3*
~ Suffer the Little Children 3*
~ Crouch End DNF
~ Rainy Season 3*
~ The House on Maple Street 2*
~ Umney's Last Case DNF Summary sounds good but I couldn't handle the reading style. so detective-ish, as it should be. Detective character in book. Author who created him is dying so he switches places.
~ Chattery Teeth 3*
~ My Pretty Pony 1* Hated it. Something to do with time. Time moves faster when you grow up. Time is a pretty pony with a wicked heart. "Pretty pony has done it's fair share of running" (aged rapidly)
~ Sneakers 1*
~ Dedication 3*
~ The Doctor's Case 3*
~ The Moving Finger 4*
~ Home Delivery 3*
~ It Grows on You 1*
~ You Know They Got a Hell of a Band 3*
~ The Night Flier 3*
~ Popsy 3*
~ Sorry, Right Number 3*
~ The Ten O'Clock People 3*
~ The Beggar & the Diamond 3* ( )

NIGHTMARES AND DREAMSCAPES BY STEPHEN KING is a series of short& novella stories that goes back to Kings early days . He always has said he likes short stories & in my opinion I think NIGHTMARES AND DREAMSCAPES is one of his best short stories books. So , Constant Reader, as Mr.King calls us fans of his, fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ride. Of all of his short stories I have to think my total favorite is CHATTERY TEETH which is in this book. My son, who is also a King Constant Reader agrees. While on vacation I happened to find a set of Chattery Teeth & brought it home as a gag present for my son! He loved them! So sit back, turn the lights on, put on your favorite tunes & enjoy NIGHTMARES AND DREAMSCAPES BY STEPHEN KING
