So, has anyone read 11.22.63 yet?

I loved it!! It's not a horror, but a really really great book.  There's not a dull spot in it. That's saying something. It's 850 pages or so...a short story compared to Under The Dome.  

Apparently it's already been picked up for production too.

i just recently finished reading "Under The Dome"

AWSOME BOOK. read the whole thing in like 5 days.

as far as books turned into films

i liked The Stand, It, Green Mile, Misery, and The Mist. (shawshank of course...)

The Mist is an underrated gem.... some of the acting is over dramatic, and sometimes cringe worthy - but if you can look past that theres some great stuff in here... especially the fantastic ending.

Not yet! It's sitting on my pile.

I'm just working through A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire series) before starting this. I need my King hit... it's been a few months, haha.

Although we didn't agree on Doghouse, Chris. I agree with you here, The Mist was an underrated gem with a great ending.

Not yet.  I have it on my Nook, though.
I'm reading King in chronological order (a buddy of mine who is a King fan said that's the best route to take with his novels)
Right now I am half way through The Stand, Uncut edition.

I "started" the uncut edition of The Stand and gave up very quickly.  Not sure what my deal was, but I could not get into it at all.

I had started it... but at the time I also purchased It (read it a few years before in high school) and I was so eager to read It again I put The Stand on hold-- it wasn't really grabbing my attention to begin with, anyway.  But then a buddy of mine told me that you have to read King in chronological order, especially if you want to really enjoy It since there's a crap load of references in it from his previous work (I found out about that a little too late.... I also read Needful Things before I read The Body).  So after I finished It, I began with Carrie, Salem's Lot (2nd go around), then The Shining, and now I'm half way through The Stand.... love it by the way.  Really into it more than I was before.  But as far as I'm concerned It is the scariest book by King.... I literally got goose bumps multiple times during the course of that book.  Salem's Lot made me shit bricks too.

I've just started 11.22.63 it's a return to form for me. I didn't enjoy Liseys Story or under the dome too much. I just had a feeling with dome that I was going to dislike the ending. I was right.

I'm lost in the world of 11.22.63 though. Love the little nods to 'IT' that are in it. When he nails it, you can almost smell the worlds he creates.

I just read on Wiki that a sequel to Shining is coming out next year.

It was a struggle to get through.  Guess it was one for him, not the masses.  Must go with the territory of being the Big Mac of the literary world.

Reading Dr. Sleep at the moment! Not sure what to think about it yet, it's pretty out there, but it's keeping my interest.

Anyone read his son's book, Horns? It's being turned into a film, that I think is in post-production now. I personally loved the book, not liking a certain casting choice though for the movie. They cast Lee all wrong.

The Stand is my favourite novel. Been a Stephen King fan since I was a child.

Just now I'm realizing that his dialogue isn't always the greatest though. I think that's why sometimes I have some struggle, since I grew up reading his books!


A bad writer, trying to become decent...

Thank you for all who put up with my work and try and help me improve.

Practice will hopefully pay off for my writing.

Reading it right now.  I've always liked King's writing, but hated his stories.  The subjects always left me with a sick stomach.  The subject of this book, and the fact that it is not horror, is why I am giving it a go.  So far I love it.

Read it when it came out. It has some great ideas. And some less so. Nevertheless it was an enjoyable read on the whole.

Not sure how well it would work out as a film. Hopefully a lot better than most of his do. Apart from The Shining of course. But that was a long way from the book. Erm, I digress as per.

Now, I'm off to make a turkey sandwich. I really must go to the shops soon, as I don't even like turkey.
