From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the iconic, spine-tingling story collection that includes winners of an O. Henry Prize and other awards, and “Riding the Bullet,” which attracted over half a million online readers and became the most famous short story of the decade, as well as stories first published in The New Yorker, “1408,” made into a movie starring John Cusack.

“Riding the Bullet” is the story of Alan Parker, who’s hitchhiking to see his dying mother but takes the wrong ride, farther than he ever intended. In “Lunch at the Gotham Café,” a sparring couple’s contentious lunch turns very, very bloody when the maître d’ gets out of sorts. “1408,” the audio story in print for the first time, is about a successful writer whose specialty is “Ten Nights in Ten Haunted Graveyards,” or “Ten Nights in Ten Haunted Houses,” and though Room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel doesn’t kill him, he won’t be writing about ghosts anymore. And in “That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French,” terror is déjà vu at 16,000 feet.

Whether writing about encounters with the dead, the near dead, or about the mundane dreads of life, from quitting smoking to yard sales, Stephen King is at the top of his form in the fourteen “brilliantly creepy” (USA TODAY) tales assembled in Everything’s Eventual. Intense, eerie, and instantly compelling, they announce the stunningly fertile imagination of perhaps the greatest storyteller of our time.

Stories include:
-Autopsy Room Four
-The Man in the Black Suit
-All That You Love Will Be Carried Away
-The Death of Jack Hamilton
-In the Deathroom
-The Little Sisters of Eluria
-Everything's Eventual
-L.T.'s Theory of Pets
-The Road Virus Heads North
-Lunch at the Gotham Café
-That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French

I waited for this one for a long time only to be let down yet again by SK, but, that's how it goes. The only one of the five even worth the time is The Road Virus. The other four stories are quite forgettable. I would not recommend this audiobook.

As usual for Stephen King, very uneven quality. Some stories are really good; others, not so much.

The master strikes again - every story riveting in its own way. Again, King takes your imagination, spins it around & around, then lets it go to wander the horizon on its own. He gives you the idea, the rest is up to you. Best of all, though, was Roland's sidebar tale. Being borderline obsessed with the Gunslinger's trek, the hairs on the back of my neck stood at attention when "The Little Sisters of Aluria" began. I couldn't wait for the next series of discs to arrive so I could get him away from the ghouls in white. King's dedication to Roland's saga comes with its usual sense of "I've such a story to tell you, but will you believe?"

I could not finish because it was terrible. I just didn't get it. So good luck if you do listen. Maybe someone can let me know what it is all for.

Very well narrated - a treat for any Stephen King fan.

Really creepy wonderful stories, read by several different narrators, unforgetable plot twists and details. The one read by Oliver Platt had me screaming along, his delivery and the excellent material were perfectly matched and superb.
