    We are on the same page!! tee hee That scene totally freaked me out, I was disappointed that they changed it for the movie.

    But the movie had that sound. I cringe even after the first time I saw that scene. She was one crazy female dog!

    I find Tom Gordon quite interesting and I'm liking it. If this is considered mediocre, then I can't wait to read his other books.

    I really liked IT also. It was really scary for me. I can remember seeing the movie when I was little and not being able to do aything alone in my house or outside of my home because of being scared that he'd kidnap me and kill me or something. I'm glad I got over that!

    Although I'd have to say that "The Stand" is my all time favorite SK book, I can't believe that no one has mentioned "The Eyes of the Dragon". I think it's one of his best. I also like his earlier books better than the latest ones. I'm reading "From a Buick 8" now and looking forward to book 5 in the Dark Tower series. I couldn't get into "Dreamcatcher" but thought the movie was good.

    I'm reading "Dreamcatcher" right now, but didn't know they'd made a movie of it. I had a bit of trouble getting into it first -- aliens aren't really my thing -- but now it's bumping along nicely.
    I loved "Eyes of the Dragon" too.

    Ugh, I hope you liked it better than I did. I found the beginning hard to get into, the middle started getting good but then just never seemed to go anywhere. Eventually, I completely lost interest. You'll have to let me know about the end because it's the only book of his I never finished (and I have almost all of them). I don't know why, but I just didn't like it. My brother-in-law hated it too. If the end is some kind of mind-blowingly cool extravaganza, let me know. That's the only way I'll pick it up again. I couldn't *believe* they made a movie out of it.

    Speaking of...where o where is my 'Bag of Bones' movie? I thought that was a brilliant book.

    I absolutely loved Dreamcatcher! It is my absolute favorite of his books. I like the multiple personality/event books. This one was so good for me. Maybe that's just because I like sci-fi/fantasy novels, though... I haven't seen the movie yet but I'm looking forward to it! I hear after reading the book completely the movie isn't as good. I guess I'll find out!

    Oh dear, the middle is where I am. If it gets too dull I'll give up too. But if not I'll let you know.
