Publisher's Summary

LT has a theory about pets, particularly his Siamese cat. It had been their cat, not just his cat, but that was until he came home one day to find a note on the fridge from his wife saying she had left him.

Recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall in London, this story demonstrates yet again that no one can tell a tale like Stephen King. Available only in audio!

These unabridged selections also appear in the print edition of Everything's Eventual. More unabridged stories from Everything's Eventual are available in Blood and Smoke, Riding the Bullet, The Man in the Black Suit, and Everything's Eventual.

A+++

I thought Stephen King was great, and love to see his humorous side. Very fun book, should make you laugh.

Wickedly Funny

I bought this book because I thought it would be just what I needed to fall to sleep to. Not a good idea! The first part of the book was so funny, I had to stiffle my laughter to keep from waking my husband. Pet owners will love it. And in spite of the humor, Stephen King delivers his usual magic by warping the story into weirdness by the end.

Story Time in London with Stephen King

<U>LT's Theory of Pets</U> is a great Stephen King non-horror story. As his long time readers know, Stephen King is much more than gore. One of the finest straight American fiction authors of our time reads one of his shorts for an audience in London. This audio is a little pricey, even with audible's great discount, for one story that lasts 55 minutes, but it is a must for all Stephen King fans. The introductory remarks by King to the audience get you laughing right from the start and the story keeps you laughing...for a while.

If you are new to listening to Stephen King, I would suggest trying one of the short story collections from audible before coming back to snap up this little gem.

Funny, whitty, with a hint of standard Steven king

What does Stephen King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He reads this himself and starts off with comedy. Doesn't get dark til the last few minutes but even then, still really good. Not typical King book but if you want a laugh about being married with pets, this is your book.

Hilarious!

This book wasn't quite what I thought it would be, but it was a fun and funny book that takes a look at how things seem to be true (at least was with my pets even!) It's a short and sweet story that had me laughing out loud (quite a funny thing seeing as how I only listened to it on my mp3 player -- so spontaneous bursts of laughter were amusing and confusing to everyone else) and was definitely a good buy. I've listened to it a few times all the way through and recommend this book, read by Stephen King himself (who does a wonderful job narrating with his Maine accent)

A cute short story

If your trying out his writting and just want to see how he writes and are new to his work then this is a really great read! Also if you have a dog or a cat or know people who do this bring a funny new idea into light! I was pointed to this book by a friend after she said this is what made her start to read some of his works! Its a story that will have you luaghing but the ending is kinda strange! I love this book and being a young writter myself to be I honor this work! Its something that is really quite shocking for the Father of Horror!

It's a live recording

It's king. If you like him you'll like the story. I missed the memo that it's a live recording. I'd rather chuckle on my own than be reminded by the crowd that something was funny. It took away from the story a bit.

The softer side of King...

A story that starts hilarious and ends surprisingly sad... A jolting twist that only King could pull off...
