What are the best Stephen King books?
The Stand (extended edition) is my personal fave!
@Tiffany nice, I just bought these two books today!
I liked the dark half snd 11/22/63 for starters.
Roadworks and Pet Semetery.
Salem’s Lot. It. The Dead Zone. 11/22/63. Full Dark, No Stars. Doctor Sleep.
And how could I forget The Green Mile?!
The Stand and Dark Tower but so hard to pic one.
Don’t know about the best, but my favorites are the Stand, Salems Lot, Desperation, and the ENTIRE Dark Tower series….
Lisey’s Story is my favorite!
@Dayanna I thought this was sneaky good. It is definitely one of his that stuck with me for quite a while. I think it will go back and reread it
I don’t think it gets nearly enough recognition. I love several of his books but this is my favorite and I rarely see it mentioned.
Different Seasons, The Green Mile, Doctor Sleep, Salem’s Lot, It, Pet Sematary
Salems Lot, It, and The Body
Salem’s Lot and Pet Sematary
Bag of bones, the body and green mile.
It, 11/22/63, The Stand, The Body ( which is in Different Seasons)
The shining, misery, Delores Claiborne
Probably get a bit of stick but I love The Dome!
@Rob I just finished it recently and loved it too!!
Salem’s Lot, Carrie, The Stand, Night Shift.
Needful Things, The Shining, Four Past Midnight , Skeleton Crew, Cujo, Pet Sematary, IT and many others! I love most of them!
11/22/63 is very good
The Stand, Needful Things, The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, The Shining Dr. Sleep …. and most of the rest of them!
The Stand The Green Mile Eyes of the Dragon Needful Things The Dark Tower series
Christine, The Shining, IT, Gerald’s Game
Almost all of his early works are gold, unfortunately I’d have to say his more recent stuff isn’t on the same level with some exceptions each way
My favorites are The Stand and Lisey’s Story
The Bachman books/desperation/The Stand/Needful Things/11.22.63…the list is endless
My favorite of all time is The Stand. However, 11/22/63 was fantastic.
The girl who loved Tom Gordon, Salem’s lot, the shining
The Green Mile & cujo
The Green Mile
Misery,Pet Semetary, IT, The Stand, Firestarter,Under The Dome
Cell is my favourite. Also love Rose Madder x
Salem’s Lot is STILL my favorite!
i didn’t enjoy that one.
Needful Things….although The Stand is pretty good.
My favorites are IT, Pet Sematary and the Dark Tower series.
These are my favourites too!
The Mr Mercedes series would be up there too!
Currently re-reading Dark Tower series.
Rose Madder, The Running Man and Firestarter are my top three.
The Stand and Salem’s Lot are my favorites.
The Shining, Bag of Bones, The Stand, Dolores Claiborne and 11/22/63
I’m reading The Fireman by Joe Hill (his son) right now and it’s really good so far.
Carrie, It, The Dark Tower Series The Tommy Knockers , Geral’s Game, Missery, Needful Things, Pet Semitary , Nightmares & Dreamscapes . Those are some of The ones I have enjoyed.
Wow, so many 🙂 I loved everything except DTS
11/22/63 is great. Lots of great books to choose from though. Christine was good. I enjoyed The Outsider. I’m reading The Shining currently.
Stephen King on Writing. Loved it.
My personal favorite was “The Stand.”
The Stand and The Talisman
Danse Macabre is a great treatise on the genre
I have never read any Stephen King but I am looking forward to doing so since everyone loves his writing!
Me neither. That’s why I’m asking for suggestions but instead I got a book list of all his books.
@Sumaya I’d start with his first, ‘Carrie’. And go from there. His early work was, in my opinion, his best.
It and the stand
The Green Mile is my favorite , but I also liked It, The Shining, Pet Sematary
The Long Walk, one of his as Richard Bachman. He said it’s too disturbing for him to ever allow it to become a movie.
Long Walk is my favorite
Needful Things & Misery
I’ve just finished Rose Madder and that was wonderfully weird!
Loved the book, hated the ending.
Different Seasons, The Shining, @Carrie
