the bachman books are his best. try to find an old used copy that still has the story about the school shooting in it. he pulled that story from publication after columbine, they are easily his most interesting and socially relevent works.

Carrie is a great film. And Stand By Me is great.

The first proper book i ever read was Salem's Lot. Its not a great book, but his style is excellent.

Never really liked Carrie. Just not my type of film I guess.

I don't like Salems lot. The book or the film. They just don't appeal to me

I've only read Carrie, and i tried to read his other books, but just couldn't sit down and read, because i'm not really a big reader. But i do love the movies that were based from his books. The Shining is the best.

stand by me comes from a book called different seasons, it was the first and greatest stephen king book i've ever read - it has steph's greatest stories in it: stand by me, apt pupil, the breathing method, and rita hayworth and the shawshank redemption

i also liked carrie, needful things has some good social commentary, and the running man is fantastic - best social commentary of any king book

They are very under-rated. I enjoyed them. They are 4 seperate stories in one book, and I enjoyed all four stories.

Apt Pupil is a good film. And The Shawshank Redemption is brilliant.
(I can read, but prefer to sit in the dark. Thank Jesus for cinema)

Is The Running Man the same as the Arnie film?
Im sure the book is quite different.

I remeber watching Sleepwalkers wen i was a teen. The mother played by Alice Krige aint arf a horny milf-type.
Plus Madchen Amick.
Corr blimey!

BITD I read a lotta King books that had been turned into films. I always enjoyed his work. I don't read anymore, but this thread makes me wish I still had some of his novels.
