    • The Sun Dog is of course one of the novellas contained in Four Past Midnight and I read just this one as a bit of a prelude to my next King read, Needful Things And this I have to say was awesome, it is the physically the size of a great deal of horror fiction these days but in the realms of the man himself, it s a tiddler at a shade over 200 pages And the second in the Castle Rock trilogy.The Sun Dog is a story about cameras and photographs, chilling in its entirety of impending doom, that s su [...]


    • It s funny how these things happen Quite recently I have been trying to rearrange my bookshelf Well, if you can call alternating between being lethargic and simply not doing it, trying I was going through all my books and I came across this anthology collection by the king, containing four well not really short stories, but rather novellas Four of them I held this hardcover for a little bit in my hand, trying to curb the sudden bout of nostalgia, before putting it aside I distinctively remember [...]



    • This was a very interesting and creepy idea A boy gets a new Polaroid camera for his birthday and every picture he takes has a spot on it Like any normal person he wanted to know how to have it fixed As he started to examine the pictures the spot began to take the shape of a dog and with each new picture the dog was coming closer and closer to front and center in the picture I was intrigued by this idea and was not disappointed There was this creepy feeling of the picture watching you that most [...]


    • It s a prequel to Needful Things and also related with The Dark HalfA true horror story, specially recommended if you re a fan of old Polaroids and are not afraid of dogs Read at your own will.


    • Four stories is not enough I liked Langoliers in story form the movie production failed to replicate some scenes effectively to scare the mind of the audience The Sun Dog is also very interesting to read.


    • What a disappointing read In some parts, borderline awful.The idea of this story is creepy, indeed but this would ve been better suited for a book written for R.L Stine s kind of audience The story just went ooooon and onnn I had to consciously restrain myself from screaming in public, When will you fucking end To me, it felt a little like The King was rambling in this novella It didn t have the amazing storyline of The Langoliers , or even the coherent prospect of Secret Window it did have the [...]


    • A pretty creepy novella by Stephen King standards Definitely not as scary as some of his other short stories, but a cool concept that makes you think The subject, photos that develop with some abnormality, is something we can all relate to The idea that this phenomenon could be something of pure evilwell, that s another story.



    • LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT By far my favorite Stephen King short story Cept Shawshank Redemption of course



    • Four Past Midnight contains four novellas by Stephen King For the purpose of my book count, I m counting each novella as a separate book and I ll be posting a separate review for each one Sun Dog is the final novella Kevin receives a Sun 600 Polaroid camera for his birthday but there s something wrong with it It only takes pictures of a dog a vicious, blood thirsty, mouth full of teeth.As with the best of King s stories, no one can explain why the camera only takes the photos of the sun dog or w [...]


    • Read in Dutch.The second novella in the Schemerwereld bundle, The Sun Dog Spookfoto s , entertained me a bit than the first one The book tells about a kid getting a Polaroid camera for his birthday, but the camera doesn t take normal pictures Instead, it takes pictures of an evil dog, slowly coming closer with every taken picture The story reads like a traditional horror story, similar to the ones I read a lot when I was a child does anybody remember the Goosebumps series The build up in the b [...]


    • This is a novella from Four Past Midnight I had hopes for this since I usually like King, but for me it was just sort of blah The boy in the story gets a Polaroid Sun for his birthday and each time he takes a picture with it the photo that develops is not what he shot, but is instead a black dog With each subsequent picture the dog moves a little toward the camera.It s an interesting concept, and the writing was good It just didn t connect with me as much as I d hoped There are a couple of scen [...]


    • My memory did not recall this book as vividly nor as high quality as this read found it to be A young boy gets a camera for his birth day, but it does not seem to workOh it works, just not the way he wanted.l it does is take pictures of a snarling dog that gets closer and closer each picture it takes Then it gets broken and or stolen, but the dog just keeps coming.gotta check this one out


    • 3 5 stars Firstly, I just need to make clear that this is only my very short review for FOUR Past Midnight The Sun Dog I have a separate review for The Langoliers , Secret Window, Secret Garden and The Library Policeman My feelings on The Sun Dog are summed up perfectly by one word Meh Stephen King at his worst still beats many other authors at their best, though Mustn t grumble it was only a short story.


    • Out of the four stories in FOUR PAST MIDNIGHT, this would be in fourth place Not because it wasn t good But the others I liked a little better Kevin Delevan is gifted a Polaroid Sun 660 for his 15th birthday Soon after, this tale takes a deep plunge into nightmares, hellish visions, and just a whole lotta problems is what I mean to say Won t give away any But definitely give this book a go.


    • I thought this story was okay, but I didn t really care for the ending I liked the characters and I was okay with the plot until the end I just didn t buy into the camera putting Pop and Kevin under a spell This seemed to make the story flow easier, but I didn t really understand why it was happening.I would recommend this novella to King or horror fans.


    • Ik vond dit boek, in tegenstelling tot het derde deel van deze serie, echt ontzettend goed Het verhaal bevat de juiste dosis spanning en humor, ik kan dit boek aan iedereen aanraden die van een beetje sci fi houdt Goed voor een aantal uurtjes leesplezier Een sterretje minder door het open einde, daar houd ik niet zo van.


    • I really liked this story tho the teasing was a little bit too much for me At least in second half of this story author decided to give us answers quickly instead of writing few chapters just to increase tension which didn t work on me The ending was not something I really expected, but I was glad it ended up as it did This is not one of my favorite stories, but I liked it.


    • I was not enad with this one It seemed tedious, I wasn t hip to the fantasy sci fi elements, and I just wasn t feeling it I m going to continue plodding on with these novellas because I feel compelled to read them all, but thus far I haven t been impressed with this collection I am usually such a fan of his, and I m not sure why this collection isn t quite clicking with me.


    • Note Once again, my review is for the novella in Four Past Midnight, not the audiobook I just like to review novellas separately.King get a lot of mileage out of a fairly simple premise The sleazy Pop Merill and his machinations ramp up the tension, taking away the easy solution to the problem.


    • It s an interesting concept, and the writing was good It just didn t connect with me as much as I d hoped I was never scared of the evil beast Dragged a little in the middle It is a nice and easy read and if you are a fan of horror stories Almost predictable towards the end.


    • Hace tiempo que no le a una historia tan cautivante La ansiedad que da saber que el perro se acerca y se acerca y se acerca con cada foto y saber que cada vez que se acerca, est m s pr ximo a pasar algo muy muy malo.


    • another creepy yet brilliant story from stephen king about a dog who comes out of a polaroid picture a boy discovers that this dog in the pcitures, seem to be moving closer and closer to the frame





    • This was the second best read of Four past Mindnight after the Library Policeman I liked the story, it was creepy enough and surely the novel is a quick page turner.


    • Absolutely not King s best Way too long for this plot, way too tedious, way too many explanations and off topics that are simply boring for the reader and don t really have a clear point A disappointing end of the four novellas in Four Past Midnight the first three were absolutely stunning and brilliant.
