Beschreibung

Stephen King reads three of his classic short stories including 1408, now a feature film!

Enter a nightmarish mindscape of unrelenting horror and shocking revelations as the greatest storyteller of our time takes us inside a world of yearning and paranoia, isolation and addiction. It is the world of the smoker.

Stephen King's audio original story collection blood and smoke features the tale 1408, now a Dimension Films motion picture starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson.

Also inside are In the Deathroom and Lunch at the Gotham Café, both horrific tales of withdrawl, desperation, and unfiltered suspense.

    This is a collection of three stories, tied together in name by the fact that each protagonist smokes or used to smoke. Being an ex-smoker, I find the tie-in endearing. I listened to this on Hoopla, and each story was read by Stephen King himself. Another plus!
    The first story, Lunch at the Gotham Cafe, was probably my favorite. It's about a couple who is splitting up after only a few years of marriage. They're to meet for lunch with their lawyers to discuss the details. Things go awry, to say the least!
    The second story is one that was turned into a movie: Room 1408. I had only seen the last ten or fifteen minutes of the movie once, and I thought the story wouldn't really appeal to me. However, I was wrong. This is a story about an author who has made a living writing about haunted places--he wants to stay in Room 1408 in order to add to his newest book about haunted hotels. Things don't go quite as he'd assumed they would, however.
    The final story, The Deathroom, is about a reporter who has been stationed in South America. He has found out more than the South American authorities would like for him to know, and he's been captured. He is told he will be released after he provides a certain amount of information. Whether or not he actually will be remains to be seen.

    I wasn't too impressed with Blood and Smoke. I loved almost all of Stephen King's older books and enjoyed the last couple of books that he has written, but there were several in between that I just didn't care for. It was interesting to hear Stephen King read the stories, himself. "Lunch at the Gotham Cafe" was just okay. I expected more when this story started and was a bit let down by it. "1408" was the best of the three stories and the only one that I would actually say I liked. I did not like "In the Deathroom." It sounded familiar to me from the beginning and I soon realized it was a story I had read in one of King's books and did not like the first time, so I stopped listening to it. This disappointed me because I was under the impression that all 3 of these stories were only available in Blood and Smoke.

    Pointless stories with none of the usual panache I expect from Stephen King.
