I love all of his books and short stories. I do have some that are more faves thatn others, but overall I just like them all because I admire his style of writing and the "risks" he takes in writing. Somedat I hope to be even a fraction as good and if someday he writes a blurb on my book about it "being the best" I could die content.

i haven't read the tower series yet...how are those?

Once I read his authors note that he likely wasn't going to ever finish the story (I think he calculated at the rate he was going he would be 128 before the guy ever reached the Tower), I flat-out stopped reading the series. There is nothing I hate more than to be left hanging. I got to the third book... and I'm actually mad at myself that I bothered with THAT much of it.
Not sure what you're talking about, but he's said that he plans to finish the series before he retires. I think he's even announced when he's planning to have the remaining books out.

I always make sure the screen play is written by Stephen King, or I wont watch the movie. He's also my very favorite author. And, to think, he's close to my age too ............ LOL. I have a friend who is an English professor, he loves Stephen King. Gives us something to talk about, I think that's the only thing we have in common..........LOL. There is one thing I've found out, you or either a Stephen King fan, or you hate him.

Stephen King is also my favorite author. I have liked most of the books I have read, but King is famous for writing books that seem to take forever to read. Some of them just take too long to catch my interest - anyone ever notice that when reading them? The book "It" is just like that...has freaky parts, but then there are parts when you're wondering, "When is this going to get scary?" lol
I think my favorite movies/books of his are as follows:
"The Green Mile"
"The Shawshank Redemption"
"Silver Bullet" (based on the book "Cycle of The Werewolf")
"Bag of Bones"
"Skeleton Crew" (lots of different short stories)
"The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon"
Storm Of The Century"
I'm sure there are a few I left off, but I think that's a pretty good list LOL

I've never read The Shining. I always wondered why Jack Nicholson's picture was in that black and white photo at the end of the movie, but my sister (who HAD read the book) refused to tell me why. lol. I liked the made-for-tv version better. It was less creepy but still good.
And I didn't realize he was in Rose Red. I looked and looked for him, knowing he plays bit parts, but must've overlooked him that time around. Funny.
Pet Semetary sucked. That was a hollywood film (not made-for-tv) and he was in it. Not sure if he wrote the screenplay, but he must've supported the film if he appeared in it. I was sorely disappointed in it though. Then again, I haven't read that book either.
Dreamcatchers was pretty good (the movie- although the ending was kind of lame), but I got bored about 200 pages into the book. Right when it was getting interesting, I left it on an airplane. Figures.

Ana, like I said before if Stephen King didn't write the screen play for the movie, then it isn't very good. He wrote the screen play for "Rose Red" and that was a very good movie. If it says "Based on a novel by Stephen King." Then it usually not very good, because someone else wrote the screen play. Like I said before, in his movies that he writes the screen play for, he usually has a bit part in the movie. Like in "Rose Red" he was the pizza dilievery boy at the beginning of the movie.
Before you watch any movie that has anything to do with Stephen King, make sure he has written the screen play for it or it will not be as good as the book. He's written some movies that he's never written a book first. Anyway, that's how I pick out which Stephen King movies to watch, if he's written the screen play for it, I will watch it, but if it says "Based on a novel by Stephen King" I don't watch it, chances are he hasn't had anything to do with the production of the movie.
