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'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.

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

"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 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.

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?

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 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.

Through the eyes of the dragon. It's a fantasy book he wrote for his daughter.

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.

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.

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
