You want me to pick just one??? :o My favorite novel by Stephen King is The Eye of the Dragon, a book I could read a hundred times and still enjoy it. Other favorites include Duma Key, Firestarter, and some of his short stories, as well. I loved The Mist, The Boogeyman, and I can't remember the name of it, but the one about the lake with the malicious "oil spot" thingie... I thought The Mist was a great movie, as well, and I loved the movie's ending more than the story's ending. I really loved the book, The Cell, but I hated the ending. I was actually angry at Stephen King for ruining that ending. :grin:

A lot of people seemed angry at the end of 'The Cell' - but I took it as a happy one smile I was annoyed when a certain character I really liked got a flying brick in the face - I was thinking - why on Earth did you do that? LOL.

I loved that story too with oil spot - the name has left me for the minute. It's SO good though. It was a short story on one of the horror compilations wasn't it. Oh, I just remembered it was called 'The Raft' - that was a really good short story.

I started watching the Mist but I didn't finish - I got to the part where they were all trapped in the shopping centre - I'll have to watch it properly.

Great choices Linda smile
Pet Sematary - love both the book & the movie. Disturbing but great - King said it was his most disturbing book.
Rose Madder - I never read it! I've heard it's really good though.
The Tommyknockers - Seen the film but I haven't read the book. I really want to now though, forgot about this one. Saw it years ago. The woman from CSI is in it I recall.
Misery - Love, love, love the book and the film. Kathy Bates is amazing in that role. She hates violence SO much she was crying in those scenes and had to be calmed down before the takes.
Firestarter - Love, love, love these. Book and movie too. Drew Barrymore is such a great actress - and it's really sad, but awesome. Apparently it's being re-made frown

Maria, I really like 'The Shining' too - I like most of King's stuff. Did you ever catch the movie version he wrote for TV? It was in two parts and was more true to the book. King said he never liked the Kubrick movie. It stars Rebecca De Mornay - it's good, but not as good as the Jack Nicholson version IMO.

Phyllis - I haven't read the Stand - and I only saw the first half of the movie frown It's one of my best friends favorite books as well. I loved that movie though cos it introduced me to Crowded House and 'Don't Dream it's Over' - and I really love that song, have done ever since. I recorded the opening credits I remember, just to listen to the song over and over LOL smile

the Dark Half

Favorite forever Stephen King book with such realism! Especially coz I almost 'hear' the georgian accent when he says 'hoss.' I've had to buy the book 3 times, because broke the bindings and bent so many pages!

"Calling All Angels"? I love that song and listen to it once in awhile on youtube.

I only saw a few scenes of the movie and would like to see the whole of it. The book was so good and very well written. King portrayed all the characters vividly. I want to read the book again. My brother has it.


Walk in Peace and Harmony.

I read the Dark Half when I was really ill - it brings bad memories up. It was very well written though and very, very creepy. I remember it clearly.

Phyllis - next time you're on youtube, type in 'Crowded House don't dream it's over' - it's a really beautiful song, apart from an odd line which doesn't seem to fit toward the end LOL.
