After watching some of his movies I'm kinda interested to read his work. So what do you think is the best? (if you have read any) I would make this into a poll but there is to many.

I never read any of his books, but my friend swears that the novel Carrie was his best,

Cujo without a doubt. It's his most realistic novel, because it's really something that can happen in real life, a rabid Dog. That's what makes it great.

The Dark Tower series is amazing if you don't mind doing 7 books. If you want just one read The Stand unabridged edition, it's like 1000 or so pages but every one is awesome. If you need shorter read The Shining.

The Long Walk is my favorite.

This! There's just something so creepy about it... can't even explain with words...

The quotes from Count von Count at the beginning of some of the the chapters did it for me. If Stephen King quotes something from Sesame Street, you best believe some sh*t is about to go down.

I haven't completed any of his books because they'd bore me at times. But I'd have to say Cujo and Cell are good reads. I read Pet Semetary a little more than halfway through and it really bored me. =/

#22 Posted by Deadite (23120 posts) - - Show Bio

The Dark Tower in it's entirety

This.

The second one I'd suggest is IT.

Since you're looking for the very favorite of mine, those would be it. Otherwise I'd suggest reading almost all of his work.

Try different ones out I've read many of his books and read the ones that were movies they are vastly different

Have only read a few of his books,but of the ones I have read, it would be the shining, then salem's lot a close second.
