The Man in the Black Suit Audiobook Free Download
The Man in the Black Suit Audiobook is a short story written by Stephen King. The story was originally published in the 31 October 1994 issue of The New Yorker. This book was later included in King’s 1997 collection Six Stories, as well as his 2002 collection Everything’s Eventual.
“The face of the man in the black suit grows ever clearer, ever closer, and I remember every word he said. I don’t want to think of him, but I can’t help it, and sometimes at night my old heart beats so hard and so fast I think it will tear itself right clear of my chest.”
The story tells of Gary, a nine-year-old boy, whose brother had died not long before due to a bee sting. One day Gary goes out fishing and falls asleep. When he awakens, he finds a bee is hovering near his face. Due to the allergy, he shared with his brother he is very scared, but then he hears a clap and the bee dies. He turns around and he discovers a man in a black three-piece suit with as is described in the story, glowing, burning eyes, as if there’s a fire inside him, looming over him, with pale skin and claws for fingers, and horrible, sharp, shark-like teeth when he grins.
The man – whose body odor smells like burnt match heads – tells Gary terrible things: that his mother has died while he was away, and that the man intends to eat him. Sam does not believe at first, but soon realizes that this man is actually the devil, and makes his escape by throwing his caught fish at the stranger; he then runs off as the creature swallows the fish whole and pursues the boy to the outskirts of the forest. The things the man said were false, but Sam is still haunted by the incident for the rest of his life.
Sam tells the story from his perspective as an old, terrified man. He is haunted by his belief that he only escaped from the devil by either pure luck or his own skill. At the end of the story, he is frightened by the possibility of death. Will he go to God, whom he has prayed to all his life? Or will the man in the Black Suit return to take him away, now that he is too old to run away from him again?
