I am a big fan of Stephen King.I think he is an underappreciated writer because he has chosen to write in the horror genre.but as his short stories have shown,he can write just as well in other genres.

The first King novel I ever read was Carrie;years before it was made into the movie with Sissy Spacek(which I own on video).It has been so long since I read it,I am not sure I remember it well enough to call it a favorite.

Pet Sematary creeped up on me and scared the stuffing out of me weeks after I'd read it.I love how Stephen king was able to get inside the head of a female character in Delores Claiborne.The Stand turned late summer cold and scared me during the daylight hours.
Misery freaked me out.I totally identified with the main character.
The short stories in Different Seasons were compelling and well written.

I used to underestimate King until I read Pet Sematary.That is when I discovered the thing I like most about Stephen King:the way the horror sneaks up on you.He is not a gory writer.He develops plot and characters methodically and in great detail.He is a thinking person's horror writer.For me it is only after I have read his book and thought about the plot,do I feel frightened.I finished Pet Sematary disappointed,I didn't think it was that scary.But when I contemplated the concept of a cemetary which changes your dead loved ones into murderous zombies,I had trouble sleeping for a couple nights.

I tried to read Insomnia,it scared me too much But what I read was interesting.I think I started to get scared for the main character,the widower,and I couldn't read any further.I did read the one about the abused woman who ran away from her murderous battering husband.I just can't remember the title.

I have seen a couple of the mini series and ,I think,all of the movies.I have seen Rose Red twice as well as IT.

I think I will try to find his book on writing.I would love to read his opinion on what it takes to be a good writer.

My A.P. English teacher said that King wrote every novel based upon a nightmare he'd had. Can you imagine how awful his dreams are? He says he even sleeps with the lights on every night because of how terrible they are. I mean, I sleep with the lights on, too ... but that's because I'm a wuss!

I started reading The Stand and got just over half-way through before I decided I couldn't take it anymore.  Don't you guys think he goes into a little too much detail on all of his characters?  I got so bored reading all of their life stories.  High fives to all of you who stuck it out though!

That's one of the things that make Stephen King such a wonderful writer. His characters have depth, they have life, they are not flat, one dimensional like so many of these "McFiction" books out now.

I think he is quite brilliant and has such an understanding of human nature. The Stand is a wonderful look into our complex psyches. Pet Semetary is also astounding, as is Misery. 
I've just finished to read The Stand, that in italian version sounds like The Scorpion Shadow...I like it! I think it's interesting book, even if a bit scary and sad...I like how he describes his characters too, I don't think that book is boring and then it becomes more interesting and more interesting...

Stephen King?

Anyone a fan of Stephen King?  Some of my faves from him are: The Shining, Misery, Secret Window, Secret Garden, and The Body.

I also love his book called 'On Writing'.  I'm a writer myself, and it has sooo many helpful hints. 

I live only a couple of hours from his house in Bangor, Me.  I'm right across the border.  Got a pic of his house when I was going to Cauldron Con in Mass. last August.

I'm such a fan of Steven King! He's a brilliant writer! I just finished reading 'It'. It's so well-written, dark and twisted, but I didn't get nightmares from it thankfully. I think I might read Misery next.

Heh, absolutely!  I am a writer myself, and even though I don't enjoy the whole "thriller writing" that he does, I love him because he is such an awesome writer!  I recently read his memoir on writing for my journalism class, and I was rather inspired.  I think he has a very deep, thoughtful mind that is capable of incredible writing.  Like I said, I am not a big fan of the horror/thriller novels or stories, but I am a huge fan of Stephen King's talent.
