    " Mildly entertaining, but not one of his best. The ending was abrupt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry L | 2/13/2014

    " Listen to this on your next car ride, you will be entertained. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony Ventrello | 1/29/2014

    " I have read this story multiple times and it gets better each time. I wonder: whatever happened to LT's wife? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Patrick | 1/20/2014

    " A superb little story. Stephen King is amazing in the fact that he can write a thousand pound tomb or fire off a quick short story and they are both fufilling. I usually don't care for an ambiguous ending but in the case of Moo Moo Bell, it fit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Block | 1/14/2014

    " This is a great story for couples who have their differences in pets. It's read by SK and I love those audio books because having the author read his own story is always the best way to get the real feel of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheena Smith | 1/6/2014

    " Love...love...loved this story. it was probaly my favorite from Stephen Kings Everything's Eventual. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carlissa | 12/28/2013

    " I liked most of this story; 3/4 of the way through it was very funny. The ending was very dark and I wasn't expecting it, but I should have expected it since it is a Stephen King story after all. I did like his narration, but being a live recording, the sound quality wasn't the best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 12/23/2013

    " The story becomes less engaging in the second act, but King's live reading lends an intangible likeability to the storytelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita | 12/11/2013

    " Funny and read on audio by King. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl Chapman | 11/17/2013

    " My favorite part was listening to my favorite author in my ears telling me a story. And at first I thought the live audience would be a distraction but it was fun hearing their responses throughout the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April Dawn | 10/10/2013

    " This one shows his rarely seen, but awesome sense of humor "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carah | 9/3/2013

    " I listened to this on cd. The author (Stephen King) is the one who read it and it was interesting listening to him read his own book. He read it how he meant it to be told. So, in that aspect I liked it, on the other hand, there was a lot of language in it that could be offensive. "

    " pets are the devil's whores............really "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 8/6/2011

    " This was a really fun audio book to listen to. Stephen King does a good job with the reading, he has a real sense of comic timing, and his characterization of LT is great. As expected, even Stephen King's comedic writing ends up having its dark side. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 7/31/2011

    " Thought provoking as always, King tells his tale of marriage and loss and pets in a way that makes you feel as if you were in the audience listening to him read it live, which is, of course, how the CD was recorded. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 2/11/2011

    " This wasn't bad, wasn't good, just sort of ok. It's a short story written and read by the author, so that's always fun, but it was kind of boring, actually. For King. "
