Anyone who has read Dreamcatcher? Or It? Or maybe even The Shining? Those books are real good, you see...

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Pilvikki: I haven't read The Stand yet, but I'm thinking of watching the movie, and I know what you mean when you say his books are... long... I tried reading Misery.... It's not all that many pages, but... It was.... boring... Kind of like Robert Jordans books, you know... The wheel of time... I sort of just stopped in the middle of the series, book six, and I couldn't go on, it was too boring... They never got anywhere!

I have read virtually all of King and Koontz. I skipped the rest of the Dark Tower series as I got really tired of waiting years for the next volume.

I still read them, but I lost a lot of interest when King left the horror he was so good at.


I have reached the point where I read "for the moment" and don't recall details.

I used to love Steven King, Firestarter was the first adult book I ever read (I pinched my mums copy when I was about 8) but over the years I have started to go off him a bit. For a few years there I was starting to think he wasnt even writing them himself anymore because they were getting pretty bad.
saying that I did just read The Shining, because I have the film and it's one of my favourites, and the book is SO much scarier.
This is my favourite version of The Shining though :lol:

A couple of his stories are on TV tonight. Not great reviews (written stories are always better).

I liked him a lot when I was younger, but haven't read him in a while. I bought Dreamcatcher (I think 2 yrs. ago), but it's still sitting on my shelf untouched. I should read it someday.
