Re: The Stephen King Megathread

There'a a reason the first 4 books of Dark Tower are all fantastic - he wrote them years apart, and only when he felt the urge. Then, after his car accident, he started to feel mortal, and decided to get them finished before he died. As a result, books 5 and 6 are a bit tedious, not as memorable or powerful. On the other hand, book 7, the finale, is one of the best books he ever wrote, and that's saying something. Books 5 and 6 are not terrible at all, and they're certainly worth getting through for the epic book 7.

Finally to the point in The Waste Lands where I gave up on it ten years ago... and I made it a little further this time.
I don't know how any one gives up in that book.....I find that for myself, the earlier books are the high points and I generally fly through the first 4 books in no time flat. By the time I've hit The Drawing of the Three I'm in full speed ahead mode and nothing really slows me down until I get to the Wolves of Calla, about half-way through where it starts to be a bit more tedious to get through. Song of S. isn't bad to get through but parts of the The Dark Tower are also a bit slow as well.
Well, there's just a large section where nothing much happens. I'm loving it this time around though.

I mean... really, I hate to sound rude, but I'm tired of trying to figure out where your posts begin and end, timothy.

To be honest, 11/22/63 sounds like the first Stephen King book I've been looking forward to be for quite a while.

Borrowed Full Dark; No Stars from the library but just couldn't get into it before it had to go back. (What I did read creeped me out a bit, though.)

I have a copy of Duma Key -- one of his better works, imo -- I should re-read that next.

Re: STEPHEN KING BOOKS AND MOVIES discussions and comments :

The only two King books I've ever made it through were 'Cell' and 'The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon', and I enjoyed both. I've started and stopped a few others, not really because of the books themselves but because of time constraints and other things that intrude on my personal time.

I really enjoyed tv mini-series version of "The Stand," and I think it would be really cool to see something done with it with a bigger budget. I've heard good things about the comic book adaptation.

Re: The Stephen King Megathread

This could be a GREAT novel. I love Ken Grimwood's interpretation of trying to change the event in Replay. I can't wait to see SK's take on it.
