Beschreibung

Road Rage unites Richard Matheson's classic Duel and the contemporary work it inspired-two power-packed short stories by three of the genre's most acclaimed authors. Duel, an unforgettable tale about a driver menaced by a semi truck, was the source for Stephen Spielberg's acclaimed first film of the same name. Throttle, by Stephen King and Joe Hill, is a duel of a different kind, pitting a faceless trucker against a tribe of motorcycle outlaws, in the simmering Nevada desert. Their battle is fought out on twenty miles of the most lonely road in the country, a place where the only thing worse than not knowing what you're up against, is slowing down . . .

  • (3/5)
    A pair of stories about psycho truckers who terrorize people.
  • (4/5)
    Really enjoyed the juxtaposition of these two stories (especially King’s father/son interpretation)
  • (4/5)
    Whomever it was that had the idea of pairing these two stories was a genius!

    DUEL from Richard Matheson is a classic horror tale about a man traveling down the highway, being terrorized by a maniac in a semi. This tale was a re-read for me, via audio. 5*

    THROTTLE by Stephen King and Joe Hill. This novella length tale was new to me and I enjoyed it. Having paired these two stories together, I can't help but think that DUEL was the better of the two. THROTTLE was still good and a fun listen just the same. 3.5*

    Recommended for a few hours of listening pleasure!

    *Thanks to my local library for the free audio download. Libraries RULE!*

    This collection contains Duel by Matheson and Throttle by King and Hill, both of which involve a scary truck on a highway. From an academic standpoint, Duel has a solid character arc, but as someone who lives in Northern Virginia, aggressive or even malevolent drivers are not nearly as unnerving to me as I think was intended for the reader. Throttle had a bit more meat to it, with a motorcycle gang and backstory and all that. In general, it was two decent stories but not something I'd necessarily recommend someone go out of their way to read.

    Really disappointing. Good storytelling, but mediocre art and overly simplistic stories that I feel have been told already in some shape or form... (Fast and Furious, Joy Ride, Death Proof, etc.) Maybe in book form it's much better...?
