Stephen King’s unparalleled imagination is in full force in this collection of four unabridged short stories originally found in the classic, Nightmares & Dreamscapes. An all-star cast of readers bring to life these timeless stories from the darkest places, including the tale Dolan’s Cadillac: soon to be a feature film starring Christian Slater, Wes Bentley, and Emmanuelle Vaugier.A widowed husband spends seven years plotting revenge for his wife’s murder in Dolan’s Cadillac. A school teacher discovers her students are not what they seem in Suffer the Little Children. In Crouch End, a woman fears that supernatural events may have led to her husband’s disappearance. And in Rainy Season, a young couple is forced into the ultimate battle of Man vs. Nature when torrential rain turns deadly.
Review- My favorite story from this collection was Rainy Season, partly for the story itself but most of all because of the actress doing the audio adaptation, Yeardley Smith(the voice of Lisa Simpson). Somehow her high-pitched, child-like voice added even more terror to the story of the plague of toads devouring a young couple who just happened to be in Willow, Maine on the wrong day. My least favorite story was Dolan’s Cadillac. I thought it was too long and a bit slow and I could care less how big dirt moving machines work or how long it takes to cut a grave for a Cadillac in the hard desert between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The two other stories, Crouch End and Suffer the Little Children were a pleasure to listen to. If you’re a fan of Stephen King give this collection a try and see what you think.
