Most recently I read Under the Dome
and really, really enjoyed it - it felt like his best novel in years.
I agree his short story collections Night Shift
and Skeleton Crew
are superb. I still shiver when I think of the endings of "Gramma" and "The Jaunt".
Carrie, Salem's Lot, Pet Sematary -
all great reads. Insomnia
not so much.
was excellent for the first two thirds, but disappointing in the last. Which is a shame, as it fell just short of being a true epic.
One that never got good reviews was From a Buick 8
but personally I thought it was pretty good - the descriptions of the alien creatures coming through the portal were disturbing as hell.
Best of all was Different Seasons
- four fantastic novellas and a pretty flawless book.
