Re: Stephen King - Best Book??

My favorite SK book is 'Salem's Lot. Love it and the way it makes me want to believe in vampires. I'm reading it now, and writing about it on my blog.

Re: Stephen King - Best Book??

The Stand has totally captivated me since it's original printing which I read at a rather young age. I've reread it over and over through the years and was always sad at the end that it had to be over and I would once again have to leave a very real world (to me) of friends that I would miss. When the unabridged version was published I was only to happy too take it up and revisit my old friends, and to meet so many new friends. Still, I always find myself somewhat melancholy when I come to the end that I must leave that world behind. Perhaps it is time to read it again?

IT will always stand out as one of the few books that have ever frightened me. I read it when it first came out and had quite a few feverishly sleepless nights plagued by thoughts of things that go bump in the night. Things adorned in silver skins with orange pom-poms. Like The Stand, I have read this book over and over and will most likely continue this behavior until I find the clearing at the end of the path.

I am of course partial to the Stand, as I think there is nothing better, but then some of his novelettes come pretty darn close. Probably my favorite that I don't think gets mentioned near enough is The Breathing Method. Might good, mighty good.

For me, his best books are:

Salem's Lot
The gunslinger
(contrary to most reviews i found the first book in The Dark Tower series to be the best)
The Stand

Re: Stephen King - Best Book??

Aside from the obvious ones like The Stand and It, my faves would have to be Bag of Bones, The Dead Zone and one of his less mentioned ones, Firestarter.

The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile; in spite those are not about terror, for me both are superb...

Re: Stephen King - Best Book??

As a whole my favorite is the DT series, even though it suffered somewhat from middle book syndrome.

My single book favorite has to be The Stand. Tansy, don't know if you ever finished it, if not I highly recommend it!

Re: Stephen King - Best Book??

I think the best is Talisman. Form one point of view I'd like it to be screened but from another I'm afraid it will be hard to keep the uniqueness of the story in the movie. Sometimes words hit harder than images.
Stephen could do that

Mith: Great choices! I actually dusted off a couple of books from my King collection and the first one I went back to was Firestarter, great book! Obviously The Stand is simply unbeatable, but Firestarter is up there!
