In five unabridged stories, five narrators each take a shot at the unsettling, the terrifying, the classic, and the whimsical King. In "Autopsy Room Four," Oliver Platt elegantly understates the horror of waking up on a post-mortem table. Boyd Gaines tries to fill Frank Muller's shoes in a Dark Tower vignette and mostly misses the mark. Judith Ivey gives a spunky performance of a tired single mom in a dead-end job precisely capturing the story's ups and downs. S&S Audio, however, saved the best for last. Jay O. Sanders is the first person other than Muller (and the author himself) to hit King's prose spot on. With just the breath of a pause, the hint of a Boston twang, or the slightest touch of added depth or speed, he grabs us by the hand and yanks us into the labyrinth of classic King. Sanders's performance is not to be missed. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
