From Library Journal
Riding the Bullet was originally published in March 2000 exclusively as an e-book and has now found its way to print and audio. It's a classic King ghost story/urban legend about a college student who hitchhikes across Maine to visit his hospitalized mother and gets more than he bargains for during his rides. Film and theater actor Josh Hamilton provides an excellent reading, with a promising command of pace and characterization. However, for many libraries, the economics of buying an audio version of a single, extremely short story may be questionable. Recommended with that reservation only.

A young college man, Allan, receives a phone call advising him that his mother is in the hospital as she has had a stroke. His car is broken down and so he decides to hitchhike back home to see her. He ends up getting a ride with a man who turns out is deceased and he gives Allan two choices – neither of which are good but he has to choose one. And then he has to live with that choice. Creepy, well done novella read by a good narrator.
