'It' is about a clown stalking and feasting on the children in the town of Derry. It haunts the children when they turn into adults and they to kill Pennywise once and for all. It's a long, long, long novel. I don't think I can't even finish it before a few years from now. But that's what makes a good book I geuss. Chapters that build up suspense and spine tingling moments - now that's a good book to read. I read only Part One, but I already highly recommend it.

Just watch the movie. Same out come in the end. Lots of time saved, too. Move on to something better like --

"How to make bargin basement whiskey with even cheeper women: vol-1"

That my friend is a good book.

As for his books, I think "Salem's Lot" is the best, but with the "The Shining" right on its heels.

The worst, by far, is "Cujo".


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

I love Stephen King. He's been my inspiration to write.

Desperation stands out to me as his best work...fantastic.

I read Carrie a few years ago. I liked it, it was a quick read. I still haven't seen the movie, though.

Well, I know what to expect after reading the book. That's all I'm saying.

The Shining rocks..

Excellent novel..

Kubrick had Native American Indian motifs everywhere in the design of the movie suggesting the Hotel was built on an Indian burial ground..

Have a look at the carpet pattern design on the floors in the halls.. Looks like dead Indians buried.. Indian Tapstery all over the place and the Lumberjack shirts worn by the family..

So the hauntings comes from building the hotel on Ancient American Burial Ground..

Wacky idea..

Love Despreration, it's fantastic. Second to IT personally, but brilliant nonetheless.

And for anyone who thinks IT was a crap movie, don't let that put you of reading the book. They are totally different and the book is far superior. I read it at least 5 times now and still can't stop re-reading it. I just happened to like the movie too, my future husband's in it.... Tim Curry  

Desperation and IT are really worth the read.

I remember the Talisman. It had a nice little double story going on and I thought it was terribly clever. I think it would be definitely cinematic enough tomake a movie out of as long as the sreenwriter captures the essence of the original novel. Then again, that kind of goes without saying of any adaptation.

Maybe they could talk Emma Thompson into doing it...she seems to be rather good at big books with complex plots and characters.

I've also heard a rumour that Romero has decided to put off filming  "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon" and changed to the production of "From A Buick 8". Interesting.

I'm going to pick up "The Cell" when it's released soon. Looks like a good read.
