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.
A very quick and enjoyable read which once again has you warning the protagonists not to approach the entity at hand, but alas, to no avail.
The story starts out a bit slowly with King focusing on what turns out to be a bit player but once it picks up, it keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Great story to listen to while on a road trip.
Mile 81 is a return to Christine or Mile 81. It is grotesque and certainly one of his less serious stories. But it didn't knock me off my feet.
The Dune was far more enjoyable for me. It's only flaw is that it is too short. It is story told by an old man writing his will. He tells his attorney of a mysterious island he owns. If I tell much more it will give too much away... like I said, short.
Both stories are read well by accomplished readers. It also comes with a portion of king's newest door stop of a novel, 11/22/63.
I wouldn't suggest this to anyone other than a King enthusiast. 11/22/63, on the other hand, I would suggest to anyone.
If you haven't read his short stories, this is not the place to start. Buy the Just After Sunset audio book. There are some GREAT stories in there! N. is possibly his best short story to date.
King draws from his well of careworn characters, ie, wise beyond their years children, salt of the earth downeasterners, but once again manages not only to make them interesting, you actually want to root for them.
Spoiler Alert!!!! This isn't so much a supernatural/paranormal type story as it alien or monster. I think it took about 40 minutes or so to read, maybe less, which is another reason why I'd consider it a short story. I read on average 2 to 3 books a week from all different authors and genres, and I would highly recommend this to everyone, whether you are a King fan or not.
