Mile 81 is about a car that really isn’t a car and the story itself is quite entertaining but as I mentioned in my review of the eBook (see here) I really think that the kids, Rachel 6 years and Blake 4 years, are acting way to mature for their age. And this strikes me as a bit strange since King usually is very successful in describing children in his stories. But I’m sorry these two feels wrong to me.
The Dune is about the former judge Harvey Beecher who’s found himself a small island that can tell him the future. Well, at least to some extent and even though Harvey isn’t sure he wants to hear what the island tells him he can’t help himself from listen.
Both stories are good but I prefer The Dune if I have to pick a favorite. Here, on this audio, they work well together though and it feels like they are somewhat the same type of stories which makes them a good team for this edition. And both Thomas and Edward do a really good job narrating them. In other words; the Mile 81 audio edition is well worth checking out.
