3.5. Scary stories about things that at first glance doesn't seem scary at all. Stehen King at his best in this compilation!

This is an audiobook collection of short stories from the mammoth collection (yup, another Christmas present from my sons), “Nightmares and Dreamscapes” (1993). This format includes four stories, each narrated by a different celebrity. I must admit that I remembered only two of these stories (been awhile), but I enjoyed this little compilation. So here we go:

The title story, “Chattery Teeth,” narrated by Kathy Bates, tells of a young man purchasing a somewhat larger and more durable version of t

I chose this off the shelf as they were stories I had not read -- and no wonder, I have Nightmares and Dreamscapes on Mt TBR, and I DID have an audio book - but it has been lost somewhere, so I have tried in vain to find it again, and apparently it has just been released in smaller bits -- I will get all the stories eventually!

Chattery Teeth - about what I expect from King. Just a touch of supernatural in an otherwise ordinary world

My Pretty Pony - eh. I think part of it was I didn't enjoy the r

Spooky teeth, a chain-smoking grandfather and his young grandson, weird sneakers and a strange maid...these are the main characters in the 4 short stories of this audiobook and I have to admit that they're not King's best. I really liked "My Pretty Pony" and I also liked the writer's familiar style describing everything and constructing a whole world around the stories, but "Sneakers" and "Dedication" aren't going to be my favorites. Plus, I also have to say that it was easiest for me to underst ...more

Maybe Im not a short story person? This is the second in a row short story selection I've hated. Maybe Im not a books on tape type person. Either way, this is not some of King's best work. I feel like the stories went from bad to worse. Chattery Teeth was entertaining but nothing spectacular. Sneakers was barely entertaining. Pretty Horses was unbearable, rambling and not worth my time. Dedication was the worst. I guess the draw for this book on cd was that famous people read it. I think that no ...more

While I've developed a liking for King's short stories and novellas over the past few years, I'd have to say that the works here were among those I've cared for least. Now, it's still Stephen King so they are wonderfully written with his great sense of time and place- especially in My Pretty Pony, but overall I found myself less interested than usual in his tales. Worth getting to eventually, but I'd spend time with his other efforts first.

The stories in this collection - from King's Nightmares and Dreamscapes - vary from the hardcover in some not so subtle details. The reading is excellent too, which of course adds considerable drama to the tales.
Included in this four CD set are 'Chattery Teeth', 'My Pretty Pony', 'Sneakers', and 'Dedication'.
Audio book, recommended by my favorite daughter. What fun! I listened while I painted trim (and inadvertently some of the wall...). It's quintessential Stephen King, and unsurprising for most of it, but still absorbing while working on a tedious project.

I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting these stories again - particularly "Chattery Teeth", "Sneakers" and "Dedication". The other story on this audio CD wasn't my favorite, though it's definitely well-written and performed.

Its the audiobook of several of Stephen King's short stories from Nightmares and Dreamscapes, which is one of my favorite King books.
