Are there any Stephen King fans here? I love Stephen King and have all his books.

He has been a great influence on my own work as a writer too, as I love writing ghost and horror stories (some of which I have published on Amazon Kindle).

What is your favourite Stephen King book? Mine are Salem's Lot, The Shining, Misery and IT.

Me, It

I am a great fan of Stephen King, and my favorite book is IT. It's such a huge book, but I really got into it and couldn't put it down.

I love IT. However, I must admit to being a trifle disappointed with the ending, as I thought Pennywise would have turned out be something much more scary and demonic than - ha - a giant spider!

I am currently re-reading Bag of Bones, having seen the TV movie with Pierce Brosnan a few weeks ago. A great little ghost story from King.

I treated myself to the full and unabridged version of The Stand. It's years since I read the cut version, so am really looking forward to reading this uncut version. I have the TV movie on DVD too, which I haven't yet watched.

I dont like horror per se..but  have to admite Stephen King is a great story teller.

I love Christine and the book that was made into Shawshank Redemption - my favourite film

I feel like Duma Key is one of his more unappreciated novels. I really found the characters to have lots of depth, and the story was one of his more honest ones.

I have read and own almost all of Stephen King's books. I also have a lot of his movies. My favorite books and movies are The Stand, The Langoliers, It, The Shining and The Dark Tower Series. Although I do love all of his books and movies. Well the ones that I have read that is. I don't have the books that he has published in the last few years. Which is only a few though. 

Can you believe I haven't read The Stand.... I know, it's a must. Misery's my favorite so far.

For me, it was Needful Things. I loved the way he incorporated all his favourite characters into one novel, for his Constant Readers. It also made me feel physically ill at times as well as scaring the hell out of me.

I agree with you Gigi, he does create amazingly real characters, and i am in awe of his ability to write almost an entire novel out of dialogue. A skill I doubt I will ever manage to acquire.

 

I enjoy King's earlier works. Some of his later efforts are filled with so much back story, I stopped enjoying the book befoe I was half through. IT was probably about my favorite,  along with the short Jerusalem's Lot.

Interesting that I find this topic as I just wrote a blog about everything I learned about writing I learned from reading Stephen King.

I hope you find it interesting.
