The ending is a little predictable, though.

Both short stories are good SK products to listen to in the car on a trip.

The "short story" was interesting but $11.48 is a little steep for a 90 minute listen....I will not buy any more audio CDs from Amazon unless the number of CDs and total run time are listed in the offering

The reading of Stephen King's Mile 81 was the brighter side of the big picture, the actual story in itself was a weak version of a R.L. Stine Goosebump book for children. The best part of Mile 81 was listening to him mock Justin Bieber, otherwise SKIP.

The Dune, on the other hand, was amazing. short. brazen. great.
The story of The Dune could have even been turned into one of his even longer 'Shawshank' size stories, but regardless by the end of the 15 minute story I LITERALLY hit the back-track and listened to it again on the car ride home, praying I missed something the first time, but was pleasantly surprised that I hadn't and loved the eerie story that much more.

The Mile 81 Audio is a toss up whether to purchase or not, I bought it at a hole-in-the-wall used book store and no offense to the author (being a huge fan of King) but that is the exact place you should buy it, no Mile 81 retail.

It was an OK book. It was a very very quick read (a half day). It was really over before it even bagane. I wanted MORE...it wasn't scary, trilling or anything "King" like. Then it just ends.....

As usual both stories were imaginative and suspenseful with a surprise ending. Both stories have just the right amount of detail.

I didn't know this was a short story. But that's okay I know to look for 'novels' now. Love Stephen King, so I was all good.
