    1. The 14 short stories included in Stephen King’s Everything’s Eventual have been published in several audiobook products. Recorded Books published a two-volume set, which contained all 14 stories; you can find links to my audiobook reviews for those below. Simon & Schuster also released two volumes from this anthology, and Everything’s Eventual, 5 Dark Tales is the first.HIGHLIGHTS:Autopsy Room 4 narrated by Oliver Platt.All Howard wanted was a relaxing game of golf on a Saturday aftern [...]


    2. Five bites of King's good but slightly uneven collection, which contains some great stories, such as "Lucky Quarter," with the best piece being "The Little Sisters of Eluria," which is a novella set in his THE DARK TOWER (which I have just recently started reading) cycle. I love me some Weird Western, and King shows his talents in this mixture of horror, fantasy, and the Old West. "The Road Virus Heads North" is a classic Stephen King tale, embodying what he does and where he does it. I love the [...]


    3. Five Dark Tales (audio) - Loved going back to Roland's world in Little Sisters of Eluria! Another DT link with Everything's Eventual as we learn about Dinky Earnshaw and his amazing abilities. Autopsy Room 4 was a quaint tale - enjoyable listening to. The Road Virus Heads North was a gripping tale that kept you wondering what the outcome could possibly be. Lucky Quarter was the weakest of the five tales.



    4. Everything's Eventual is not my favorite of King's collections, but this audio book collects what probably may be the five best stories from the volume. The Road Virus Heads North is my favorite of the group, a traditional King-style horror tale that's a riff on Dorian Grey. Lucky Quarter is a nice literary piece, but lacks a satisfactory conclusion. Little Sisters of Eluria is a Roland/Dark Tower tale that's pretty good but would be better served by appearing in a Dark Tower book. The least of [...]


    5. This is a selection of five short stories from the original Everything's Eventual: 14 Dark Tales by Stephen King. I wanted another audio book so I chose this. If I'd known it wasn't all 14 stories, I may have waited.My overall rating's an average for all five stories. There were a couple I enjoyed well and one I ejected from the player because I didn't like it at all.Everything's Eventual, read by Justin Long, features Dinky Ernshaw, a character I'm familiar with from The Dark Tower series. Long [...]


    6. I was lucky to have found this collection of short stories. It was the short story "The Sisters of Eluria" that introduced me to the character of Roland, the protagonist of the "Gunslinger" series. I could not put these books aside.


    7. Five short stories about an hour long each. Sisters of Eluria is a good side tale for the Dark Tower fans out there. I enjoyed them all. This is a nice set to jump into when you need a break from heavier and longer books.



    8. Five good stories, but didn't realize i had the 5 story version instead of the 14 story version till I was already into it.


    9. 3.5 starsEverything's Eventual: 4 starsAutopsy Room Four: 3.5 starsThe Little Sisters of Eluria: 3 starsLucky Quarter: 2.5 starsThe Road Virus Heads North: 4 stars




    10. A collection of 5 short stories. All very odd and some very creepy. Included is the prequel to the dark tower"the little sisters of Euluria". Great way to spend the day!



    11. 3.5 Stars (5 Dark Tales, Audio Version)Everything's Eventual - 3.5 StarsAutopsy Room Four - 4 StarsThe Little Sisters of Eluria - 3 Stars(The Dark Tower #0.5, Intro. to the series)Luckey Quarter - 3 StarsThe Road Virus Heads North - 3 Stars


    12. 201st book of 2014, 1st book of 2015.Not my favorite short story collection of his, but not that terrible, either. Let's go down the list.Autopsy Room 4 - Takes the idea of waking up during surgery and amplifies it to 1,000. What an absolutely horrible thought, and it's told so brilliantly. The coda at the end always cracks me up.The Man in the Black Suit - Average boogey man story. Not especially scary, but it would make an excellent campfire tale.All that You Love Will be Carried Away - The th [...]


    13. Overall, I would rate this collection of short stories from Stephen King a 3.25 when all is said and done. I seem to like King's short stories a little better than his novel as a general statement, but that definitely wasn't true for these. Maybe it has to do with when he wrote them? I don't know, but I can tell you that I had a difficult time focusing on the stories while they were being read. Everything's Eventual - 3.75* This story had an interesting concept (a teen has strange powers that in [...]


    14. There are three large audio books of stories from Everything's Eventual, a large collection of short stories, and this is the main one of the three. It contains some great stories, along with two "Dark Tower" related stories, in "Everything's Eventual" and "The Little Sisters of Eluria" (a big Dark Tower story). Both of these stories were great listens. The first was done very well by the reader, and was entertaining to reread this title. The second one was the highlight, a three disc nariation [...]


    15. Excellent collection of disturbing storiesAlthough Stephen King is best known for his novels, he does master the art of short story writing quite well. Sometimes even these stories become strong competition for his other work. Take Riding the Bullet for example. When King published this short e-book on the internet in 2000 it attracted over half a million readers. This frightening little story is now being released as a major movie. So it is not surprising that every time a short story collectio [...]


    16. For me, this was four dark tales and one I couldn't get through. I almost feel like there's something wrong with me. I could not bring myself to finish The Gunslinger (the first in the Dark Tower series) and when I noticed that one of these stories was a prequel story about Roland, that very gunslinger, I thought, 'oh good, perhaps I can get into it now.' Nope. Not happening. So there went half of the audiobook. I will say the remaining stories were good. In fact, let's rate them separately. I w [...]


    17. Something I picked up at the library to listen to while I'm driving. Here's a quick rundown:Everything's Eventual: This was by far the best story in the bunch. Justin Long's voice fits the character really well. It's about a loser-ish young guy that has a special power and what it does to his life. My ear was glued to the speaker while driving, wanting to see how it ends up. Autopsy Room Four: Good fun and read by Oliver Platt. About a guy that doctors believe is dead and they're performing an a [...]


    18. I usually eat up anything Stephen King, but I was a bit disappointed by this collection of short stories. The first story, named the same as the collection, Everything's Eventual had a very interesting concept and the last story The Road Virus Heads North was exactly something I have come to expect from King and totally loved it. But all the stories in between seemed to be lacking. I may have enjoyed The Little Sisters of Eluria a bit more if I had read the Dark Tower series, but I haven't gotte [...]


    19. Best story was "Autopsy Room Four" - allows you to consider yourself in that situation and adds a bit of gallows humor.The title story and "The Road Virus Heads North" were ok, but I felt they were missing something. And I didn't find the main character in "Everything's Eventual" all that appealing."The Little Sisters of Eluria" was interesting, but probably won't make me pick up the "The Dark Tower" series any time soon.I missed out on the fifth story "Lucky Quarter." For some reason, my audio [...]


    20. LOVED it. I haven't read King for years and years and picked up this audiobook It might have been the readers that did it for me, but I have a renewed love for Stephen King and his way with words and stories! I found myself on the edge of my (driver's) seat as I listened to each story. My absolute favorite was Everything's Eventual, the first story - Justin Long really brought the character and the story out for me.I have requested the book with 14 dark tales so i can read the rest. Hats off, St [...]


    21. This is one of Stephen King’s best short story collections. I listened to the unabridged version with all 14 stories on loan from my library (not just the five listed here), and really enjoyed having different readers for each story. My absolute favorites were 1408, Autopsy Room Four, Everything's Eventual (the best in the collection), The Man in the Black Suit, and The Death of Jack Hamiton. The stories were truly original and some were downright horrifying, and made me fondly remember the Ki [...]


    22. You don't get a first person story from Stephen King very often, so I was pleasantly surprised to find just that in the title story, which ended up feeling more like a half-finished novella that he just couldn't be bothered to complete. I listened to this one on audiobook and was pleased to find that Justin Long read it, which is about as perfect a choice for this story as I've ever encountered in any audiobook. The stories were good, but nothing exceptional.


    23. Everything's Eventual- Apart from the unfortunate vocabulary choice, this was my favorite of the five. Stories about people who find themselves in over their heads- it's a favorite theme of mine. I started writing reviews of the other stories, but they all basically came down to "Enh." I might check out the book and read the other nine stories, although if these five were the best of the lot I don't have terribly high hopes.


    24. [Audio] I enjoyed the collection of stories and find a collection of short stories ideal since I only listen in the car. My only complaint is that there are a few points where music is being played at the same time as the narration, which I find horribly distracting. (But this only happened for a few minutes that I recall.)
