    Just because I heard about it and could get it for free, I jumped on this new SK story like some rabid fiend. :) Suffice to say, there's nothing much to say except that it's a good character study about a bereaving old man getting a dog and having the scare of his life bring him all...

    Laurie is a short story by popular American author, Stephen King. It begins predictably enough, with recent widower Lloyd Sunderland?s bossy older sister, Beth turning up at his house on Carmen Key with a puppy, a little female Border Collie-Mudi cross. Lloyd is adamant that he does ...

    I really enjoyed this short story. He captured the innocence of puppies really well and it was overall a really sweet tale between man and his best friend. Of course, it wouldn't be a Stephen king book without something on the strange side creeping in. I was considering giving this lov...

    I loved this. Even in 32 pages, King's characterization comes shining through. And he writes dogs almost as well as he writes people. Loved it, can't wait for The Outsider. (Have you preordered yours yet??) ...

    There honestly isn't much to say here. I'm procrastinating on my grad school work, and this was a quick, enjoyable distraction. Don't go out of your way though. ...

    Presimpati?na pri?ica o psi?u i penzioneru, tamam za ubit vrijeme u busu. ?to je najtu?nije, ovih 30-tak strana su bolje od njegovih zadnje dvije objavljene knjige. Dr?im fige da ?e Outsider li?iti na ne?to. 4* ...

    Okay... I live in Florida, right. The place where this story takes place. And so, I've experienced... :SPOILER ALERT: I've experienced the feeling of unexpectedly coming upon a gator and looking into those dead, black eyes. Eyes like a sharks, unfeeling, emotionless, cold. The...

    Beautiful little breath of fresh air to puncture the long, depressing apocalyptic novels I am currently reading. Dogs are universally the best cure to everything. I used to work for a dog trainer. We trained and cared for about 70 dogs, and my favourite was a hyperactive, anxious, y...

    Recently I?m starting to think King?s short stories are better than his recent novels, which seem to meander on and on and on. While this story isn?t horror per se, I suppose it could be classified as the horror of nature. It?s spooky stuff one way or another and much more effe...

    4 Stars A new short story free from Mr. King on his website. I believe a lot of authors have that love for their pets, like Koontz & his Golden Retrievers (but of course Koontz goes overboard with this), and sometimes will write a story about their furry loved ones. And this ...

    This reminded me of the gift that is a dog; that other things have big teeth; and life's boardwalk will have its share of broken planks. Liked this one a lot. ...

    It was life, you were stuck with it, and all you could do was live it. I could read anything by Stephen King. ANYTHING! The story has a bitter-sweet start and then there is a twist towards the end. Well, apparently no matter how much you miss your other half, you always want to s...

    Laurie looked up at him with her amber eyes. He wondered, as he almost always did, just what it was she saw in the face looking down into hers. Like the stars he saw when he took her out at night, it was a mystery. This is the sweet story of Lloyd, who after losing his wife in advan...

    A sweet little yarn by King, naturally even his sweetest tales possess a bit of the macabre. ?Laurie? is a thirty page short story that echoes King?s 1994 novel ?Insomina? as well as being similar in atmosphere to the 2008 tale ?Duma Key.? Grief is a common thread thro...
