my favorite king book
He's written so many (I'm a little over halfway through the lot) and it is so difficult to come up with a favorite, but if pressed, this would be the one. I had seen the movie, thought it was okay, but the pace and depth of the characters in the book...everything was just right to make it a wondrous tale of epic proportions. I gave the book to my Dad as an introduction to Stephen King, with some trepidation, but that was unwarranted, because not only did he read the whole thing, when he got done, he started right back in on page one for a repeat performance. How much better of a recommendation could there be?
