My Favorite Stephen King Story
Read by Eric Roberts
Duration: 45 minutes.
It is true that with all of Stephen King's lengthy tales, my favorites are usually the shorter ones and Quitters, Inc. is probably Stephen King's shortest story. It was originally part of his book of short stories Night Shift and was one of three stories in the 1985 movie Cat's Eye.
I cannot divulge any more about this very short story without introducing spoilers except to say that their methods are anything but AMA approved, but they do work.
The story is read by Academy award nominated actor Eric Roberts. Roberts gives an understated performance, like a man telling a story at the end of a bar after a long night. But, it works perfectly with the characterization of the mobster counselor at Quitters, Inc.
I rate this short story audiobook 5 stars out of 5.
