Stephen King Novels

Stephen King has made numerous novels and short stories which in return many have became full length features. One of my books is the Cycle of the Werewolf-although it is a very short read it had everything that it need to make the story worthwhile. The movie that matches this book closely is named Silver Bullet.

Have you tried reading Dean Kootz? He's my all-time favorite author. A lot of great books. Especially his Odd Thomas series. Although they are not all that disturbing or macabre like Stephen King, he is still a pretty good storyteller. And a lot of his books usually have a supernatural element of some kind.

I read about a book a week and I pick them all up at Goodwill for 2.29 for paperback and let me tell you - they have more King and Koontz than anything else.

I agree that Koontz is a great writer, but I've noticed he uses Aliens and such alot of the time, which I don't really get into all that much. His Frankenstein trilogy (only two have been written so far) was really good.

I've loved so many things King has done. It's really hard to pick just one. But I'll have to say a couple of my favorites are The Green Mile, Pet Semetary, Christine, and the Dark Half.

I LOVED CELL, I HOPE THAT GETS ON THE BIG SCREEN SOON. BAG OF BONES WAS ALSO GREAT.

He's a very successful person, but I personally like H.P. Lovecraft more.

I would put the Dead Zone at the top of my list followed closely by the Shining. In these books Stephen King's prose is full and honest. His characters are great. For personal reasons I would also like to add Salem's Lot. The story is pretty run of the mill. It's pretty much Dracula taking place in New England but he makes it work. Thinner is brilliant. Misery and the Dark Half are the last on my "best of" list.

The thing I love about Stephen King is the way he describe his characters in his books, is same way they are in the movie, you already know what everyone looks like and the places are the exact way you you imagine it would be such as 1408, Misery, Dreamcatchers and so on especailly Needful Things.

Great imagination and settings to the plot, but I often find that many of his works fall short of having a scary and or believable ending.  Don't get me wrong, he is an inspiration but the ending in Needful Things (the novel) was fairly lame.  I liked his short story "The Mist," but the movie was ultimately ruined by really bad computer special effects. If he's the Master of Horror, then why the hell didn't he say something about the bad special effects ruining what could have been an awesome movie? The rest of his flicks aren't bad at all.

Pet Cemetary was ingenious, so was IT, but really what is the break-down to this novel "The Cell?" Please tell me it's not about another killer cell-phone story!

Hey! Have any of you read 'Danse Macabre?' S.K. runs through what he thinks is scary in movies, books, and short stories. It is a very informative look into what is S.K.! My fave is 'The Stand'! With the new 'swine flu' crap, it really hits home! Next, I like the 'Dark Tower' series. I just wish Roland made out better! 'Eye Of The Dragon' is pretty good, I'd like to see them make a movie of it. Somebody told me he heard of a 'Dark Tower' mini-series? I can only hope! Anyone else heard anything? If so, please let me know!
