It does take some getting used to, but once you get into the story of it it can be good.

The stand is good and Salem's Lot will help you with the DT Series, I'll leave it at that. It is long to get into that, but it is a good series once you get into the story.

Hi there. My favorite Stephen King book is The Stand. Salem's Lot is a close second. I stuggled with The Dark Tower series and gave up on it twice, but I recently started to reread The Gunslinger, and I do believe I have been roped in this time.

I love them all salems lot reeled me in. i Loved it and the stand and all of them . not to fond of the dark tower series. I do have his book on how to become a better writer and go back to it time after time. I seem to never skip pages in his books like I do in many others a mark of a great writer

I really enjoyed the Dark Tower series as well. I enjoy his older work more; Under the Dome seemed a little off for me, although I did like it. I am currently reading Duma Key, which is interesting, but my all time favorite is IT. That movie scared the heck out of me, and the book is sooo much more intense. I love it!

Of the ones I've read... I love Duma Key. I love the story, his gift, and the setting.

There are many I own but have not read yet (like under the dome). I need to get busy!

I was really hoping when the dvd came out they would have an "alternate ending" that was closer to the story. Oh well, at least the monsters were fun!

Novel - The Stand, you could "smell" the tunnel out of New York. YIKES!

Short Story - The Mist - I think the movie really blew it with the ending.

The Stand is my all-time favorite, almost biblical. Love The Talisman. Christine is always a great read. It scared me half to death, which was, of course, it's purpose!

Hard to choose a favorite because certain books go with certain moods, or even certain phases of your life.

So are we really going to pick a book to read and discuss it? That would be so awesome.

New member here, so not sure what team plans are! Keep me informed!

Tell Lobster to start putting in the overtime cause if we go, we take the team with us and it can get ugly. It will probably end up like an Everest expedition, we all start out together, but chances are, only maybe a handful may actually make it to SK himself!

My all time favorite is still The Stand. I used to live in Boulder, CO and many of the structures he talks about are really there. The house that character that builds the bomb lives in (sorry forgot his name) is really there, it's a historical home and looked just like he described (the last time I was in Boulder)

New favorite - Under the Dome - read it while camping with the kids this summer and its characters and plot reminded me of the complexities of The Stand - loved it!

Then again, as do many, love them all!

Misery made me cringe, The Stand made me hope, The Green Mile made me cry, Lissey's story made me shiver....... so many wonderful tales...... so many real emotions......

Enjoying the journey.....

Dreamcatcher, Desperation, The Regulators ( familiar charachters, different story), Gerald's game (only Stephen King could make trying to get a glass of water take a whole chapter and still keep you hooked), Lissey's story, Cell...The list goes on and on and on. I can't possibly have one favorite. Also The Green Mile ( I read it as each new installment came out).
