    I never got into this one, maybe I need to revisit. I loved Dr. Sleep because to me it was a return to “old school” SK-style writing…exactly what he moved away from with Hearts in Atlantis, etc. I don’t even remember if I read Dolores Claiborne, now that I think about it…

      Doctor Sleep was SO good. I was so skeptical of a follow up “sequel” to the Shining, but regardless of its connections I think it’s his best in many years.

    I’ve never been a huge King fan – horror gets me. The only one I’ve read is The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordan. And I’ll probably never read another book by his. With maybe an exception for the Dark Tower series, simply because I have had lots of people recommend it to me.

    I’m more more comfortable with science fiction.

      It’s hard to judge King on one book, as his styles and stories are so different. The Dark Tower series took me years to get through and I still haven’t finished it!

      The two books I most love by Stephen King are The Dead Zone and The Tommyknockers, both of which I think could be considered more science fiction than horror, especially the latter. 🙂

        I loved most of the Tommyknockers – it’s been years since I’ve read it. I remember being annoyed by too much talk of the main character’s alcoholism and terrible choices lol! But I guess that’s King in his substance abuse years!
