Descrizione

Road Rage unites Richard Matheson's classic Duel and the contemporary work it inspired-two power-packed short stories by three of the genre's most acclaimed authors. Duel, an unforgettable tale about a driver menaced by a semi truck, was the source for Stephen Spielberg's acclaimed first film of the same name. Throttle, by Stephen King and Joe Hill, is a duel of a different kind, pitting a faceless trucker against a tribe of motorcycle outlaws, in the simmering Nevada desert. Their battle is fought out on twenty miles of the most lonely road in the country, a place where the only thing worse than not knowing what you're up against, is slowing down . . .

  • (3/5)
    A pair of stories about psycho truckers who terrorize people.
  • (4/5)
    Really enjoyed the juxtaposition of these two stories (especially King’s father/son interpretation)
  • (4/5)
    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. 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!*

    This collection contains Duel by Matheson and Throttle by King and Hill, both of which involve a scary truck on a highway. From an academic standpoint, Duel has a solid character arc, but as someone who lives in Northern Virginia, aggressive or even malevolent drivers are not nearly as unnerving to me as I think was intended for the reader. Throttle had a bit more meat to it, with a motorcycle gang and backstory and all that. In general, it was two decent stories but not something I'd necessarily recommend someone go out of their way to read.

    Duel - 3.75 stars
    Throttle - 2.75 stars


    The suspense, angst and thriller aspects of these two novellas are beyond intense. I was definitely sitting on the edge of my seat. Especially with Duel, I almost had anxiety overload.

    Really disappointing. Good storytelling, but mediocre art and overly simplistic stories that I feel have been told already in some shape or form... (Fast and Furious, Joy Ride, Death Proof, etc.) Maybe in book form it's much better...?
