I've been "aware" of King forever of course, but when I think about it, I've probably seen more films of his stories than I have read his books.
In fact, until a few weeks ago, I had only read "The Shining" (and loved it). I finished 11/22/63 a couple weeks ago...(could be one of my all time favorite books now), and am about halfway through "Bag of Bones" (liking it much so far).
I know "The Stand" is a favorite, but I do recall starting to read it many years back and losing interest, so..other than that, what do you guys think would be the best "next read" for me? I've gotten so used to getting in bed at night with my iPad and reading King that it's going to be like quitting smoking if I don't have a follow up for this one
It's gonna take you a while to read through all the books on that list, but you'll be a demonstrably better person once you've finished.
Nice, Bryan..Tom, sounds like very good advice,envy you reading all this for the first time..tho gotta go back and read some over,of course you forget and miss things in earlier readings..enjoy the books and your time here!
Okay, so you started "many years back" on The Stand and didn't care for it. Pick it up again, because it's classic King and you're in a different headspace now than you were lo so many years ago. I think you'll fall in love with it and want to continue reading it. And make sure it's the unedited "anvil" edition!
