Day 84 - 101 Days of Awesome
My favorite? The Stand. It's the story that really introduces the ideas that are going to go into the Dark Tower series. It takes a lot of great characters and throws them into the worst possible circumstance and watches them become more than they were, for better or worse. It's the next Stephen King book that I'm going to reread.
Yeah, he's also thrown out a few turds. The ending to Under the Dome is first and foremost. I can't make it more than 40 pages into Lisey's Story. The Colorado Kid was ridiculous (Hey! Here's an unexplainable mystery. Let me go ahead and not explain it!). I liked parts of The Cell, but it just didn't add up. And From a Buick 8 had a cool idea that just didn't go anywhere in the end.
I'll probably read just about everything that he continues to write.
