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. (This was also made into a film, directed by Steven Spielberg. You can watch the trailer here.) 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!*
I am claiming DUEL for the Classic Horror category in Halloween Bingo!
