I find his books either fantastic or boring as hell, depending on which one you're talking about. The Stand is the best thing he ever wrote, and I loved Tommyknockers, Running Man, Insomnia, and From a Buick 8. The Green Mile was pretty good, and unusually, so was the movie. There's a few I could take or leave. Cell was raved about not so long back, but I wasn't that impressed. It wasn't awful, but it's not on a par with some of his others. The Dark Tower stuff, I've managed to get to about the third book in the series. I can never seem to get the enthusiasm to read the rest. And then he's turned out some incredible trash as well. Rose Madder, Thinner, Desperation... I get the feeling that sometimes, he just phones one in, knowing the fans will buy it anyhow.

I have to agree completely! I've read every book that Stephen King has written and some can be very dry. Also as you stated The Green Mile was an exception to the rule as far as his movies go. I usually hate the movies after reading the books. They can never really portray the story correctly.

The only other one I liked, and I hesitate to call it a movie, given it was about 8 hours long, was the TV miniseries of the Stand. That was pretty close to the book.

Ilove to read Stephen King novels and have read most of them. Even the ones he wrote as Richard Blackman like "Thinner." But his writing sytle changed after Christine and I did not enjoy "IT" particularly. I think his best works were The Stand, Firestarter, and Pet Cemetary. I have his latest Duma Key but have not had a chance to read it yet.

I love Stephen King. He is my favourite writer i have been collecting his books since i was fourteen. I have most of his books and have read all of them. I especially enjoyed the Dark Tower series and the Green mile. At the moment i am reading his newest book Duma key i found it hard going at first but now am enjoying it as i get further into the story.

I love Stephen King. He is a great story teller. I've read "Bag of Bones", "the Stand" and several others. I really love the movies based on his books. They are terrifying. "The shining" and "Christine" are great classics!

I've been reading Stephen King for years now. I've read a lot of his work, but by no means all of it. Everyone seems to centre on all of his stories being horrific or gory but the thing I find is that they're very character driven. He spends a lot of time helping you to get to know his characters so when they do things you understand their motivations and why they're doing things. Other authors don't do this so much so when characters do strange things you don't always understand why. The Dark Tower series is very good, but fairly heavy going. Thinner and The Running Man are relatively short and both tense thrillers. The Stand is another huge book but the story really is something else, it's well worth putting the effort in, the same with IT. Delores Claiborne is a very character driven story, and is not as far in to the horror genre as some of his other work.

My favorite Stephen King books were "It", "The Stand", "Tommyknockers", and "The Shining". I have read almost all of his books, except the most recent. He is definitely a writer who you either love or hate. But there is no denying he is a great storyteller and can make your hair stand on end when he wants to. I also agree with some of the other responders that there are a few of his books that are on the boring side but not many. If you like his type of writing then any book of his that you buy will be worth the price.
