I had just watched the film Ghost Town with Ricky Gervais the night before listening to this audio. Lucky coincidence which gave me more food for thought.

Classic King. A great short story. Narration was top shelf and classic Steven King story line.

It's a short story told by master storytellers, so it is enjoyable to listen to. No surprises there for a Stephen King's readers though.

It kept my attention, and I probably enjoyed it more than I normally would have seeing as how I am a Tampa Bay Rays fan.

Was an interesting story, and free, so not disappointed with the "realization moment" being the end.
