    I've read a couple of Stephen King books and my favorite is Dreamcatcher. It is a really enticing book that I couldn't put down no matter what part I was reading. It was a wonderful read.

    My favorite is IT, and I love the Bachman Books, especially The Long Walk.

    I don't really like Stephan King books and am not a fan, but I do read his books sometimes.

    My favorite book by Stephan King is The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordan. It was the only book I could most relate to and the only SK book I completely understood after reading.

    The Stand and The Shining are my two favorites. I also like The Shawshank Redemption and IT.


    I have to admit I'm a wuss when reading some of his scarier books though. I'm the type of person that the last thing I do/see/read at night goes straight into my dreams. When I was reading The Shining in high school, instead of reading at night like I do for non-horror books, I would get up early in the morning and read first thing.

    I remember reading Thinner. If I were to describe it, it would sound silly but, the book was well written. That was the only Bachman book that I've read so far.

    Haven't read them all yet - he writes faster than I can read - but my favorite is definitely The Stand. I cringed when I heard they were filming it for TV but was pleasantly surprised at the result. Glad they didn't try to cram it into 2 hours.

    Also liked The Shining, The Tommyknockers, The Dead Zone, and Carrie.

    Not a fan of STephen King yet because I've never read his books before.

    But I'm reading The girl who loved Tom Gordon. Let's see if I'm continuing to read Stephen King's books.

    Tom Gordon is not one of his best, not by a long shot. Please don't judge all his work based on that one mediocre book. There are many, many great books that cover all sorts of different tastes written by King. If you don't like Tom Gordon, come back and describe the type of book you like. I'll bet King has a book that will suit your tastes better.

    I agree. Actually, that was my least favorite with The Stand (a long book) was my favorite.
