This book will probably end up on the bestseller lists for awhile; I've been very lucky that way. But if you see it there, you might ask yourself how many other books of short stories end up on the bestseller lists in the course of any given year, and how long publishers can be expected to publish books of a type that doesn't interest readers very much.

Everything's Eventual is the 46th book published by Stephen King, and was his seventh collection of short stories. The book was released by Scribner on 19 March 2002, and collected fourteen stories. According to King's introduction, the stories were arranged thusly: "What I did was take all the spades out of a deck of cards plus a joker. Joker 14. I shuffled the cards and dealt them.

Expect the unexpected in this veritable treasure trove of enthralling, witty, dark tales that could only come from the imagination of the greatest storyteller of our time.
Nothing personal
I was an avid Stephen King reader in high school, but I haven't really liked some of his later stuff. It seems like he gets really involved and I lose interest. I'm not trying to be insulting, it's just me, and obviously he's doing just fine without my business. But, and that's a big but, I loved this book!!! Apparently short stories from Mr King are perfect for me. I felt like I was reading a book he'd written in the seventies or eighties. Every story, except one, had me riveted to my seat. My kindle died and I just moved closer to the outlet and continued reading. 1408, the main reason I bought this book, was worth it. I'm reading, wondering when anything scary is going to happen, only to realize it's already happening and I'm terrified. Trust me, especially if you loved Stephen King like I did (Salems Lot, Carrie) then this book is for you.
Everything’s Eventual: Stephen King
This is the first and only book by Stephen King I have ever read, and I read it twice. The first time I wasn’t sure about it. Then, I returned and gave it a more thorough reading. Much better this time. Each story is like a separate little world; and they’re different from each other. Repetitions of plot and characters are avoided, allowing the expanding radius of the author’s craft to reach into new and varied fields of imagination. The brief description that accompanies each story is a great bonus, where the author reveals the kernel around which the story was created.
This is for the paperback edition with the white cover and blood red highlights: perfect illustration for these tales I eventually read.
I read this book because my own short story collection was listed as comparable to Everything’s Eventual on Kirkus Reviews. I sincerely hope that’s the case as I found King as good as ever here, delivering short narratives as comfortable as an old pair of jeans. The standouts for me were, “1408”, “Riding the Bullet”, “The Road Virus Heads North” and the title story, “Everything’s Eventual”. Truth is, I will go just about anywhere with King and did here, with the exceptions being The Dark Tower piece, “The Little Sisters of Eluria”—I’ve got a problem with cowboy fiction I guess, especially cowboy fantasy fiction. Pass! No matter what he’s writing about, he knows how to be a good host. It’s hard to deny King throws some of the best word parties around. Long live short fiction!
This is a collection of stories that really, for most of them, end rather oddly, leaving one to think about the endings for days at a time. In this collection, I found a new favorite King short story: Riding the Bullet. Creepy as it is, this is probably the most humorous (in a sick way, of course) story of any King has written. Also loved Luckey Quarter, a story that makes perfect sense if one has "been there."
It's one of my absolute favorites. I love his short story collections because I can read them (or listen on audio book) in relatively short increments. The title story is my favorite in here. 1408 is, in my opinion, one of the scariest of all of king' s works. (Actually heard they made it into a movie, will be avoiding that).
2 flippers way up.
Pretty much what you've come to expect from King. I love his character development and ability to accurately depict small-town life. This series is a great cross-section of all of the things King is capable of: love, lust, regret, pain, terror.
Definitely worth the price. :)
This book is a collection of 14 shorts stories by Stephen King. The longest story is a prequel to the Dark Tower series and will doubtless be of interest to fans of that series. In recent months, a number of people have likely bought this collection to read "1408" so they can see the story that the movie was based on. I confess that this was my motivation and it's certainly worth reading. Because it is a true short story, it doesn't involve nearly as many twists and turns as the movie, and ends more cleanly.

The title of this collection comes from what may well be the finest story of the lot. It's a quirky tale of a young man with the ability to affect other people using symbols and writing. He narrates the story himself, sounds like the village idiot, and has just about the strangest job imaginable.

L.T.'s Theory of Pets is a second standout. It's a story of marital difficulties, pet incompatibility, and the art of storytelling. It's quite good and much better than any description of the plot could ever do justice to. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll enjoy it.

Autopsy in Room 4 may be the most suspenseful story. It features a paralyzed man on an autopsy table and you don't have to be the most imaginative person in the world to see how frightening that prospect would be.

Reviewing a collection of short stories can be tricky because there are so many stories in the book and each one is its own experience. Three or four are truly outstanding, and most of the rest are still quite good and well worth reading. There were two or three that didn't grab me but the beauty of a short story is that you don't invest that much time so the weaker stories don't take much out of your enjoyment of the book. I'd recommend thins book to all fans of King or the short story format.
