was my frist King book back in about 1975. Since then I've read them all, I think. I've read the apocalyptic The Stand
at least four times - my favorite of all. About to re-read 'Salem's Lot
for the first time - it was just re-released in paperback, I guess because of the vampire craze.
Also recommend The Tommyknockers
as probably my third favorite of his.
Don't turn your nose up at any of the books just because you may've seen a movie based on it - they usually bear little resemblance to each other, IMO, except for The Green Mile
, Stand By Me
, and The Shawshank Redemption
(the latter two based on a couple of his often excellent short stories).
King's my age and writes so well of the times of of my childhood !
I think I saw part of a PBS series based on Erlender?? If so, I liked what I saw enough that I'd like to read them!
