Stationary Bike, by Stephen King

This short audiobook was downloaded from NetLibrary.com, was only 1 hour and 28 minutes long, and was read by Ron McLarty.

This is not a horror story, but an odd piece of fantasy fiction. An overweight man in his late 30's, Richard Sifkitz vows to lower his cholesterol and his weight. Mr. Sifkitz is also a commercial artist, so to relieve the boredom of riding his new stationary bike, he paints a wall mural to watch as he rides. The mural contains parts of his past, and parts of himself. More or less.

Not great, but 3 stars for imagination...and brevity.
