    This was such a cute story! A man has recently lost is wife and his sister is gifting him a puppy since he isn't coping very well. He doesn't want the responsibility but agrees to take the dog "on probation". What follows is an account of their day-to-day life as they get to know ...

    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...

    I would read a grocery list made by this man. Laurie is a nice little story about a widower who get a puppy and the life they make together. Good stuff. ...

    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 ...

    An unexpected added short story to a recently released novella by Stephen King. Quite an interesting tale that mixes some unique character development with King?s trademark gory depictions at some points. A recent widower, Lloyd welcomes his sister?s visit to Florida. However, it w...

    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??) ...

    A grieving widower, a mixed breed puppy, and life. It is meant to be lived. Sawgrass. Stay away from it. It has teeth. A delightful short story by Stephen King. ...

    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* ...

    I pondered the idea of posting a picture of a puppy. What the hell ? why not? That?s Molly aka the Thing of Evil (on the left) and her proud owner, taken without permission from Steven King?s twitter feed. There?s plenty more where that comes from, and the captions are h...

    King es el Rey del Terror. Pero historias como esta nos demuestran que su gran capacidad es la de narrar. La ternura que destila Laurie es propia de alguien que domina el arte de contar historias, independientemente de qu traten. ...

    Un racconto molto breve, senza infamia e senza lode del nostro caro Re del Maine. Avrei preferito un maggior approfondimento psicologico...almeno, la traduzione ottima (s, ho letto entrambe le versioni) ^*^ ...

    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...

    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 ...

    I had bought Elevation on audiobook and I was surprised it had the short story of Laurie. It was a nice story of an old man and his dog, I love dogs and I was very pleased with the story. It shows how loyal dogs can be and would do anything for their owners. ...

    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...

    Un relato interesante que nos regala King en el que nos plasma la naciente relacin de un hombre viudo y su nueva compaera Laurie. Claro est, no puede faltar el toque del maestro. Entretenido para los 45 min que lleva leerlo. ...
