I've read five, 'Salem's Lot being one which I'd put in the middle of the bunch. The Stand seems to be the most popular from what I've heard (I haven't read it myself yet), but King rates the Dark Tower books highest. Maybe best to go for one of the short story collections? There's some good stuff in there like The Mist, 1408 etc.

Don't judge me ...I'm currently reading the Stephanie Myer Twilight series and I'm actually impressed. I've gotten useed to the main character and some of the others are great (Alice, Emmette). I read the first book, then watched the first film and...it was a lot better somehow. Still a little too much soppy romantic stuff but it's written well and I'm enjoying them a lot so far (on Eclipse now).

The Shining
It
The Dark Tower series
Misery

The above are some of the books that spring to mind when contemplating Kings best works, but my personal favourites would have to be The Dark Half and The Stand.

I'm currently reading Jericho's second book, it's just as good as the first!

Next week I've got 2 5 hour bus journeys to make so I'll be reading "War Of The Worlds" by HG Wells. Does anyone know any books similar to this because I'm a fast reader so I'd like to buy another book to take with me just in case I finish that. I'm looking for something with a similar theme but maybe from the last 20 years instead. :P

His short stories "Carrie" and "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" are both absolutely fantastic stay-up-and-read-all-night books. Cell is another really good book of his but that is a little longer

As other have said the Dark Tower books are worth a read as well.

I said initially I'm on my second Stephen King book, but thinking back last night I remember I only got half way through IT before stopping, just because I never picked it back up. Thanks for the rec's X-Pensive Trash.

I want to read Carrie, impjim, for it being his first book but nowhere local has it so ordered it online last night.

Has anybody read any Koontz books? is it Dean Koontz, the horror author? Im thinking of trying a few out over the next few weeks.

Also, has anybody read any Michael Crichton books? I ordered Jurassic Park last night so looking forward to that!

Default Re: The "Book" thread.

a great steven king book that often gets overlooked is the long walk (richard bachman) well worth a read and one of my favourite books of alltime!

also worth a read are his his dark tower series (if you have some serious time on your hands)
under the dome (a great read but like alot of his books he seems to lose it at the end)
the stand (extended edition)

im currently reading the passage by justin cronin great end of the world fodder.

Going to give his Bachman books a read too whilst going through all of his books, anymore you can suggest??

Do you all feel the same as me, it's the same with television, if you don't watch or read a series from the very beginning you can't read it at all??

Pretty much a standard rule for me. Can't enjoy a story if I don't know how it begins.
