Favourite Stephen King Book?
Lisa #recommend #horror
Misery followed by 11/22/63
The stand followed by the shining
The Girl who Loved Tom Jordon.
I loved that book too
??? The Shining. Carrie. Blaze. Salem’s Lot…and a couple of others… I can’t decide lol I haven’t read them all yet but for now maybe have to go with “The Shining.”
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon followed closely by Skeleton Crew. I know Skeleton Crew is short stories but I loved them
The stand closely followed by 11/22/63
Oh yes love both of these xx
dark tower series
I’ve only read two so it would have to be Green Mile.
Bag of bones, always creeps me out when I read it and only book I’ve read multiple times.
Insomnia and pet cemetery.
I loved Insomnia
@Bailey I’ve recently started reading king books. I have a monster collection and working my way through them. Insomnia was just so thought provoking! I loved every minute. I’m reading rose madder at the moment.
I own it but not got thou the 100 pages of being trapped ,,, not yet ?
The green mile
Is Under the Dome any good???
It’s good and much better than the ridiculous TV series.
It is good, much like his original writing.
Misery. The Green Mile, Pet Semetary…
Can’t pick one but IT and The Stand followed by Pet Semetry and Salems Lot
Bag of bones
I really liked Mr Mercedes. 🙂
The shining, haven’t read the green mile but the film for a change was fantastic.
Ooh yes Salem’s lot!.
Mine too! Glad it’s someone else’s favorite.
11-22-63 I think it is his best work
I’m reading this now!
@Paula I hope you enjoy it. I remember all those events and that added to it for me
I can never choose my favorites, but if I did it would probably be The Shining followed by Doctor Sleep, the Mr Mercedes trilogy followed by The Outsider, and The Green Mile. I usually just recommend starting at the beginning because there are so many great books.
I’ve heard tell from many many people that The Stand is his best. But I’ve never read it myself.
I’m reading it now, but everyone has told me that too!
There is something wrong with me!!! I didn’t like it
The stand. I even have the art work from the book cover tattooed lol
The Stand is excellent but the sheer volume of it can be intimidating. Aside from the Passage trilogy, The Stand was one of the longest relationships I ever had with a book.
I really liked The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon.
The Dark Tower series
The Green Mile
The stand. Or fire starter.
The Stand and 11/22/63, I couldn’t pick just one!
I have a few favourites, The Stand, Dolores Claiborne, Pet sematary.
Tie between The Shining and The Stand… For now. ?
Eyes of the Dragon. My mom made all of us kids read it once we got to middle school. This book, though not my favorite, fueled my love of reading. Thanks Mom!
I’m reading apt pupil better than I thought it would be It or Christine are my favourite. I read first dark tower didn’t like it but it gets better I want to watch flim but should read books first
Misery and the stand
For readers hesitant about reading Stephen King , I suggest they read The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. I shows off his writing ability without being Weird
Never heard of that one?
Yeah I didn’t like that one I like his strange stuff
I was a bit meh about The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, and it’s still weird, just not his normal weird
The Dark Tower series!
The Shining or It
My second favorite? have you read The Regulators?
@Ashley No I haven’t!! I’m sure it’s amazing though
The Shining followed by The Stand. I have came down with the flu every time I’ve read The Stand which always makes it fun. I prefer his older books to his newer ones and I sometimes think I’m the only Stephen King fan who didn’t like the Dark Tower series.
You’re not the only one- there’s two of us!
That’s so good to know!!
We’re blood sisters now, so I’ll tell you my secret shame… I’ve never been able to read “It”!! I know, it’s shocking. I’ve tried 3 times now but just can’t get into it. And I’ve been a Constant Reader for nearly 30 years ?
I’ve read It and I really liked the first half, the second half gets weird. Really weird….
the stand, however I right now reading the outsiders and I am loving it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hearts in ATlantis
IT. – I am reading 11/22/63 right now and it might be a good contender haha. it’s amazing.
He references IT characters in that book, so clever for King fans, One of my favs also. Am also re-reading IT now, forgot so much of it!
Yes, he is so good haha. I love IT so much. I do a reread every October!
@Summer I’ve got it as paperback, true dedication lugging it about with me!
Too many to list!
Night shift and Pet Semetary
It’s a toss up for me. I love The Stand, but, I also love Rose Madder. I love Stephen King’s books, period. It’s like trying to pick your favorite child?
None. Too gory
not all of them
@Tina to me they are.
Have you read any? Most of my favourite Stephen King stories are not horrors, or even thrillers.
The Body and Rita Hayworth & the Shawshank Redemption are 2 I can think if straightaway
@Jenny I have read IT, Pet Sematary and The Green Mile
@Amanda ah yeah, they’re a bit full on
All of them 🙂
I seem to be in a minority, but my favourite is The Tommyknockers. It was my first King book, I’d never read anything like it before having mainly stuck to the classics before, and it blew my mind.
Misery. Shining. It. Saloms lot
The running man.
The Dead Zone.
Too hard to choose…I like Different Seasons (some of his best work in there) and the Mr Mercedes trilogy is great
Needful Things and the Mr Mercedes books!
I read the Mr. Mercedes book and they were good but Stephen King scares the hell out of me
The stand. Followed by the talisman. With Peter Strauss. Actually any of his old stuff.
Not a one
Ooh, so difficult. I’m going to say Insomnia.
The stand. I have read it a dozen times, watched the movie several times and listened to it.
I’m going to say one that I don’t actually ever hear anyone talking about and that is …Needful Things!!
That is just too hard to say! Huge fan and have read all of them, most multiple times. Re-reading The Shining currently.
The Eyes of the Dragon
I did not realize he wrote shawshank redemption I love that movie but the book is probably better
