The Stand and then the Talisman
- I have read the Dark tower series three times, I like them all, greatest writer ever in my opinion
- —Guest John
- I read my first King book Salems Lot while on a camping trip. Needless to say I was so scared that I had to wake my husband up so he could come and walk back with me to our tent. He was not a happy camper. Since then I have read everything King writes except for the Dark Towers series. Hope he keeps writing.

The Green Mile
- Nothing has ever gotten my undivided attention like this book. "The Mile" is a very disturbing and thought-provoking story without equal, in my opinion. Gave me shivers and tears.

The Green Mile
- The Green Mile is a story that will never grow old, never boring, always miraculous! Whether reading the book or watching the movie, I am always drawn to The Green Mile again, and again.

- One character, from a man whose greatest strength is character development -- pure genius. One would think a story with essentially one character would fizzle. I thought after Misery 2 characters was the new minimum. Nope.
#2 is Pet Semetary. The emotive qualities are so powerful.Plus, I was listening to U2's Joshua Tree, which served as a perfect soundtrack, each day I read the book. Trip thru your wires, In God's country, Bullet the blue sky, red hill mining town, One tree hill, and "I CAN'T LIVE -- with or without yooouuuu." mmhh! I swear Bono and King must've collaborated. What cosmic combination.
#3 Thinner. The characters felt so real, they could be seen, felt, like 3D holograms.
- I have read it over 6 times and I will again. I love it

The Gunslinger(S) tied w/The Stand
- Others have mentioned the Stand great book not so much the Mini series.. The Gunslinger I go back and read from start to finish about every other year.. Geralds Game gets and honorable mention very devious.. :)

- I first read Per Sematary in 7th grade, and I've been hooked ever since. This is the only book I can say ever scared the crap out of me. The last 3rd if the book is simply terrifying; I remember closing the book back then, literally too frightened by what I was reading. Masterfully written, very much about his own experiences, given a simple "what if" twist that truly makes for a horrifying read. King himself has expressed that this book scares him the worst; havin thought he finally went to far - to the point he almost never published it! If you're looking for a seriously creepy book, this is one you HAVE to read.

The Long Walk
- Have been hooked on king for 25 years. Keep going back to read the long walk. Duma Key is a close 2nd.
- —Guest mconner
- It's unforgettable. Takes in issues of human survival, morality and spirituality. You can't stop reading and you're left with hope.Great characters
- —Guest Dolores Davis
- When I started reading, I just couldn't put it down. I like not knowing what to expect next. Haven't read anything bad by SK. Always comes through with a winner.
