Oh god all my nightmares have been added to at least one if his books
*scrounging for any comments from Maine because you all know why*
I don't like scary stuff but his autobiography written several years ago, "In Writing," was very interesting and often funny to read. As a child, a gross nanny would hold him down and fart on his head.
He is good at what he does, I'm just not a fan.
I haven't read any of his books but he's got some interesting points in his book On Writing
More a fan of his earlier work than later offerings. Seems like the supernatural element becomes too far-fetched and sometimes a cop-out ending.
I am a fan of no King
The Dark Tower, suckah fool!
I appreciate his work; it's just not my favorite genre.
Anyone remember seeing him on Sons of Anarchy as the Cleaner
I've read most of his stuff. I think I've had to have read "The Stand" over 1,000 times. I loved that book. Salem's Lot is not far behind. His books don't fare too well to the screen. Carrie, Green Mile is an exemption.
You missed Shawshank Redemption. Great movie!
The shining is pretty awesome :)
I have only read IT and The Shining. Loved both of them. However I didn't care too much for the ending of IT.
Oh I've also read several short stories out of Skeleton Crew. Survivor type was cringe worthy.
IT was just a real creepy movie ... I liked the star cast though, but the dread & misery that followed them into adulthood showed just how bad that traumatic events can affect a person by how they handle life & relationships.
"11/22/63" is one of his best books. Other than that his books are hit or miss. His stories normally start out excellent then when the climax comes it turns cheesy.
The guy is great for his work....He's creative & fast. Unfortunately, I don't have the time or patience to read through the books but I'm all for seeing any movie based on them even if much is cut out for time
One of my favorite shows
"The Stand" is one of my all time favorites. Had to have read that one about 12 times, at least.
Absolutely a fan! Also a fan of Mellencamp. If you like both you really need to take an opportunity to see "Ghost Brothers of Darkland County"
I like some of his films.
I read The Gunslinger. I enjoyed it. Big fan of movies too.
I first discovered King as a teenager with Salems' Lot and Carrie and became a fan of horror type books. There are many of his books I haven't read, but all in good time. He has a short story about the wife of BTK that I want to read soon.
Hard to be a critic. I read one and put it down.
The Green Mile and The Shining are masterpieces.
Both great movies
Green mile was 3 hours long
Glad you have access to imdb.
Other then the fact that he wrote the book The Green Mile, what does the length of movie have to do with this question?
Fun facts. I heard that on the news the other day. Where'd you get that stick?
Don't really like his books, but I enjoy hearing what he has to say
Read 1922, it's only 133 pages and can be found on the internet for free. Great story.
I'm a fan, even if King is a liberal asshole.
Shawshanke redemption. The shinning. Enough said.
I gave him tech support for his kindle many years ago. He is a Luddite for sure. Was not sure how to plug a usb cable into his computer. Super nice.
I love his books. I own many of them.
I'm "Not a fan", but I AM certainly appreciative of King's style and literary contributions...
11/12/63 was a fun read. I recommend it.
That's definitely a good one, I'm currently re-reading it.
And not to be rude, but isn't it 11/22/63?
I like some of his stuff but not fond of most of it. It doesn't help either that he writes books so fast you can hardly keep up.
That shows what a creative person he is
Being a horror fan, no. Its just dull to me. H.P. Lovecraft is where is its at
Aren't they cute?
Carrie was an alright book
Yet to read anything else by King
The Stand was my favorite, The Shining.
I loved his acting in Twilight
I am not a fan of horror but I can appreciate his talent.
Through the eyes of the dragon. It's a fantasy book he wrote for his daughter.
Not lately though. I used to read him. He's a good writer.
Not really a fan, most of his work just doesn't interest me that much. He has written a few stories I've enjoyed though.
11/22/63 was super good! His writing is superb
I'm a fan.
Edgar Allan Poe is better though.
Read Under the Dome this summer and it was a little (lot) too long for the pretty lame ending. I've heard most of the rest of his books are a lot like that so I go with No. I'll read Shawshank eventually but so far I'm not impressed.
I'm reading that one now don't spoil it
That's all I'm gonna say!
Mostly fan, although I think he puts too much of himself into his novels. Once you know this, the way his characters act becomes more predictable.
he's good at his type of writing, voted fan because he is so prolific, there are some things I like and some things meh
This user is currently being ignored
Shawshank Redeption...enough said
I've read several and I thought they were well written great stories except, many of his endings kind of stink. The only good ending I thought was to The Dead Zone. Endings for The Stand and It were weak IMO
One of my favorite authors.
