    Your favorite Stephen King book?

    I am a big fan and have all his books. My favorites from best to least are:

    1) IT
    2) The Stand
    3) The Shining
    4) The Dark Tower series
    5) Nightmares and Dreamscapes
    6) Hearts in Atlantis
    7) Cujo

    thats enough for now. I highly recommend renting RoseRed. A 5hour movie available on VHS> A good way to spend a rainy weekend. Scared the **** out of me.

    I love Stephen King but some of his latest have not been his greatest.

    1) Salem's Lot
    2) The Stand
    3) The Dead Zone
    4) Dolores Claiborne
    5) The Waste Lands series
    6) Needful Things

    I turned my head and typed these titles from where they are sitting on my bookshelf.

    I like several of his classic novels. As for his newer stuff, I loved his book, Bag of Bones. It was touching and brilliant at times. I didn't care for Dreamcatcher. I thought it became a boring rambling mess about halfway through.

    I read Salem's Lot in high school and it scared the life out of me! Loved it!

    I also liked Needful Things.

    I love many that have been listed here, but wanted to add two that have not been mentioned -Rose Madder and Insomnia.

    I used to commute 120 miles by car everyday and I listened to books on tape. That's how I "read" Rose Madder - it was unabridged and SK read part of the book. (He has some weird dialect thing going on by the way.) Also "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon." That one I would sneak out on my break to listen for 15 more minutes.

    hepcat, I love to listen to books on tape! I also heard "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" that way. I believe it was read by Anne Heche, and she did a great job. There is a great store here called "Bookears" and I drop in and rent a book on tape every time I go on a road trip. It is a great way to pass the time in the car.

    "The Stand" -- absolutely! And most recently I read "Four Past Midnight" which includes "The Langoliers", "Secret Window, Secret Garden", "The Library Policeman", and "The Sun Dog" I don't think I ever read "The Dead Zone" but I loved the movie -- oooh, Christopher Walken
