The fourth of a four-part audio series from Stephen King’s bestseller, Four Past Midnight

No matter where Kevin Delevan aims the camera, it produces a photograph of an enormous, ugly, vicious looking dog. In each successive picture, the menacing creature draws nearer to the flat surface of the Polaroid film as if it intends to break through. When old Pop Merrill, the town’s sharpest trader, gets wind of this phenomenon, he envisions a way to profit from it—but the Sun Dog, a beast that shouldn’t exist at all, turns out to be a very dangerous investment.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Milan | 1/23/2014

    " A collection of four novellas that somehow managed to start off on a relatively high note but get progressively more and more ridiculous. Seriously, The Sun Dog was nearly Goosebumps material. Ugh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trisha | 12/27/2013

    " Love the Stephen King short stories and novellas.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mr. Z | 10/28/2013

    " I remember one of the short stories, The Landgoliers, was especially disturbing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy Anderson | 8/27/2013

    " Langoliers rating "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Cook | 6/13/2013

    " The "Sun Dog" and especially "The Langoliers" stood out to me the most. Because of "The Langoliers" I gave this 5 stars. Most stories fade from my memory over time but this has always stayed fresh and I've even told a watered down version to my kids at bedtime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph | 6/9/2013

    " Dragged down by Langoliers and Sun Dog is decent, but man Library Policeman and Secret Window are just wonderful, sad stories about how the past can affect you even more than it should. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wild | 5/13/2013

    " This book is actually four stories in one. King explained that they were too long to be short stories but too short to be novels. The first two stories were pretty good. The last two were *okay.* "the Library Policeman" got better towards the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Trent | 6/30/2012

    " Scary as all get out, man! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonja | 6/24/2012

    " To be honest, I really only remember the first story, The Langoliers. It's an engaging short story, and I would recommend it to anyone who is willing to accept realities that are just a bit... off from our own. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 6/2/2012

    " I dug "The Langoliers" (which, as is done with quite a bit of King's writing, was turned into a truly awful TV movie). I can't seem to recall what the other stories were - even finding the titles on Amazon didn't bring back any memories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Just4thesea | 3/16/2012

    " Very creepy plot, with a suprising ending! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kenny | 2/25/2012

    " First off this is a book with 4 mini books inside. All 4 of them are good reads. It contains the story secret window secret garden which was made into a movie that stared Johnny Depp. But over all the 4 stories within the book are pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 2/21/2012

    " Read too many years ago to remember. I do remember though that I loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenya | 12/22/2011

    " I read this a long time ago, but it is still one of my favorites and then when Johnny Depp played the main character in the movie I was really hooked! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phillip | 12/14/2011

    " This book is made up of four horror stories. The first three were top notch. The last was disappointing. It just wasn't intresting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 andrea | 7/13/2011

    " King's style often irks me. He skews overly-descriptive and gratuitously graphic. However, the man created The Shining, The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, Stand By Me (story: The Body), so I'll take it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandyboy | 6/16/2011

    " worth reading for The Langoliers which echoes The Mist. if you want to complete his End of Castle Rock trilogy then you'll need to read The Sun Dog "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Masha Toit | 4/6/2011

    " Four "novelettes" in one book. I'm afraid I only read the first one and then I got a strong case of the "Ho Hums". The first story, Langoliers, was interesting enough and a fun read, but I would not say this is one of Stephen King's best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annabelle | 2/13/2011

    " "The Langoliers" was my favorite of the four; great characters, their quirks really added to the experience of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 2/11/2011

    " langoliers is so awesome "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/31/2011

    " The Langoliers still jumps to mind first when I think of Stephen King. Fascinating imagination and writing "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roronoa | 11/15/2010

    " Thats the first Stephen King book i read and i found it silly..
    The writing was nice,interesting at some points and not too boring but overall and especially the ending was kinda silly.Maybe i just dont like these kind of books :P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryce | 6/27/2010

    " I'm content to say that this is one of the more engaging stories from this time in King's career (early 90's). While there are places where the story could progress at a much faster pace, it's overall a well written story that keeps you engaged. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erikamdey | 3/3/2010

    " This one was the scariest story of his, in my opinion (I know others will think differently) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 12/18/2009

    " My favorite of the three stories that I read from Four Past Midnight. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 9/3/2009

    " It was good but not as scary as some of King's stories. Still, the plot was interesting. I don't know who the reader was, but he did a good job of changing voices for the different characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 6/13/2009

    " The Sun Dog – Classic King short story– creative horrific chilling writing detail with an ending that leaves the door open (I usually prefer closure but with King I’ve come to expect the worst & this was a creepy story). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chiny | 9/8/2007

    " 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... "
