. . . but I'm currently reading "It" and forgot that Mr. King is such an excellent writer. I honestly didn't recall (the last book I read was "The Shining").

ps - Apparently the new movie version of "It" only deals with a very small portion of the book when the characters were still kids.

My last reading was Mr. Mercedes. It was OK.

I read the Mr. Mercedes trilogy. I thought they were good. Not your normal Stephen King fare.

I am not absolutely certain, but there is a very good chance that I have read them all.

I enjoy his work, mostly into Ted Dekker these days and just finished the Circle a 4 volume set in one huge hardback.

5Strats, if you like King you will probably like Teds work. He is the Christian writer of scary weird stuff.

I loved Pet Semetary and the movie was just what I imagined in the book, amazing.

First off: The new movie is excellent.

Starting reading the book a couple weeks ago after a preview of the movie trailer. Born in 1974. Remember seeing the miniseries as a child. Love scary clowns.

Read about an hour a night. I am a slow reader. About 60% done on my kindle. Man the book is like as thick as the bible.

I only usually read non fiction. The book is great. Just really long winded.


If you are a fan and don't see the movie in the theater you are really missing out. They forward the movie to 1988 as the kids. So there are some changes to the story to update it to the present.

Not scary. But suspenseful.

I'll have to check the film out.

I'm curious about Ted Dekker too.

I think he is a great writer. I stopped reading him after Cujo, but very much enjoy most everything he did.

I've read nearly everything he's written and consider him a genius (except that after all these years he still doesn't know/care that Glocks and revolvers don't have safeties).


But damn, man, I cringe every time he opens his yap about politics.

They *do* have safeties. He just refuses to use the one he was born with.

I recently finished Mr. Mercedes, and started reading Finders Keepers. I am loving this trilogy, but doubt I will read anything else by him.
My girlfriend is an avid fan, and has everything Mr. King has published.

"Under the Dome" was the last one of his that I read. It was really good.

Yeah, he really screws up about guns sometimes. In one of his books he writes of a .358 Magnum and in another a .457 Weatherby to shoot a wheel off a car.

I used to read all his stuff as it came out, but at some point in the past he crossed over into what I call "landscape writing".

This is where the author writes a paragraph of narrative that could have been condensed into a single sentence.
Almost as if he were being paid by-the-word.

Reminds me of a drummer we had for a while, who was very good, but she insisted on filling every possible moment in a song with superfluous riffs and fills.... it became "white noise" drumming.
