Re: whats your fave stephen king book

Too many to just name one, so top 3, and honorable mentions.

1. Pet Sematary
2. Needful Things
3. Misery

HM to Eyes of the Dragon (was a young kid when I read it and he even stated it was intended to be a children's book). In addition, all of his short story books, especially Skeleton Crew and Different Seasons.

Bonus voting...his tv and movie adaptations...

1. Shawshank Redemption
2. Stand By Me
3. Salem's Lot TV Movie

HM to The Green Mile

Re: whats your fave stephen king book

I'm not sure if I've read any besides that woman tied to a bed all book long one. Not sure what made me start with that one. It was alright, and I've always meant to read more of his. Maybe I have and just forgot; I'm obviously not a big reader. So that one.

Edit to add: I think it was called Gerald's Game.

Re: whats your fave stephen king book

My top three would be:

1) Pet Sematary
2) Salems Lot
3) The Shining

Undoubtedly the books I read when I was younger made a bigger impression, so that may not be a complete reflection of how good they actually are. Though while I've stopped reading a number of authors I used to be into, I continue to read King. He's managed to keep putting out stuff that I like for over 40 years.
