My first Stephen King and a good choice to start with. I was expecting more horror but this is still really good and very character driven. The twist at the end was a surprise too. It has definitely convinced me to read more books by King (eventually)
Great super short story for dog lovers.
Even greater that it’s free.

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, young female border collie. Laurie was a well-adjusted and mature puppy; perhaps it was the mutt in her. My border collie wouldn't stop barking for hours, she destroyed playpens and you would never catch her curled up s ...more
Dogs are awesome.
