I've seen and read Misery and the book is so good. I have also seen Cujo, not as good as Misery.

Hm, I read everything he ever wrote & published between 1973 and 1987 (except for "It") and nothing at all since.

Read "Cell".

ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz. Boring. Stephen King has gotten really weak over the years.

I only read "four seasons' the body", just because I love "stand by me" movie. Good nouvelle.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I've always thought that Stephen King was a bit overrated, just like James Patterson, but he has written some incredible novels, most notably the Shining and Duma Key.

I used to read him a lot but for some reason just fell out of it. My favorite was The Shining. I read it twice and was totally creeped out both times – even after seeing the movie first! What a great book.

This good – first I saw the movie and thought it was great.

Then I read the book and was so blown away by it that I was mad at the people who made the movie because they changed so much from the book.

Even the second time I read it, I was so engrossed in one part that when my mother called me to dinner (I was 19) it startled me so much, I yelled out.

It is very good.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I haven't read Stephen King, yet. But tomorrow I plan on going to the library and possibly checking out one of his books. The older I've gotten the more intrigued I've become about his writing.

Yes, I'm a King fan! So far, "The dark half" has been my favorite. Shining is so different from the movie; the woman is the main heroine in it. I actually prefer the movie.

I have one part of the tower series (unfortunately it's not the first one since my grandma gave it to me). I can't remember which one; it has that gross -i'm pregnant with two people and an alien-kind of thing.

I like his books because they are not simply about horror, they tell more about human nature.  Misery doesn't have any supernatural elements, but it's still-or because of that- engrossing.
