I wish they would just put all of the dark tower books in to a compilation. I read the Gunslinger and thought it was both interesting and confusing. He throws you right in to an alternate universe without really explaining anything about it. That gives it more of a payoff when you realize that our universe is one of them and that he might actually travel here one day. The problem is that not enough happens in the first book for me to want to spend money on the next one.

The Stand is very much like 2 books in 1, but that's what hurts it. The first half about Captain Trips is good. Its sad, interesting, and inventive. The second half about the eventual battle between good and evil is awful. Its mostly about two sides preparing for an epic battle, but the epic battle never happens. A story about two teams preparing for war kind of falls apart if there is no war.

I know my favorite won't be on the list but Rose Madder and the Talisman. Most SK fans don't care for Rose Madder, but I think it is phenomenal. Was this a list of SK best novels or best novels to movies? :/ "Go then, there are other worlds (books) than these."

The Tommyknockers belongs on this list.

I agree with the choices you've made. I liked "It" well enough but became fatigued by the overabundance of dialogue between the kids. I even wondered if he, (King), was being paid by the word. Beep, Beep, sometimes put me to sleep. Cut about 50 to 75 pages of repetitive dialogue and it would be a much better book.

The Dead Zone is UNBELIEVABLE. Amazing, timeless, and so appropriate for today.

The Stand was amazing for sure, but I think my current favorite King story is The Outsider. It's still pretty new compared to most of his works, but I just think it's such a great topic for a story and the way it's written is also awesome. Also The Green Mile still makes me want to cry just thinking about it :(

IT has to be one of my all time favorites. The movies were good, but nothing beats the book. It left me a bit depressed afterwards with that ending, but I still reread it.

If you're talking about King's more recent novels, The Outsider really needs to be on the list

Haven't watched this yet, but if "The Stand" isn't #1, then this whole thing is invalid. Edit: Ok, they got that part right, but showing the Salem's Lot remake footage instead of footage from the first mini series is just...well, wrong.

What about "Children of the corn?" My favorite and the first book I read from S.King a looooong time ago.

I really like Stephen King. But I have to say that I don't like Pet Sematary. There is nothing interesting in two thirds of it. And the ending is disturbing. Borderline disturbing. It is way overrated. If you're sad, this is the worst book possible to read. IT wasn't like this. IT is a masterpiece, except for a scene in the sewer. I haven't read The Stand, but I will soon.

I know he wrote it with Peter Straub - but the Talisman is one of my all time favorite books EVER. I re-read every year, and have for the at least once a year for the past 25 years. Hits me in the feels every time. Love you Wolf.

Few of his more realistic novels are on the list. Gerald's Game, Delores Clayborne, Cujo, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and The Long Walk could actually happen. Good literature is tangible. I love Stephen King. But i don't think these are his best.

I definitely agree. The stand book is long. but extremely deep in his characters behaviours and the way they act.

Carrie getting an honorable mention is blasphemy. Don’t think it’s #1 material but still deserves a spot on the list.

I love how whenever anyone talks about the Shining the focus on the "all work and no play" scene... which isn't even in the book. If your talking about the books at least show scenes that relate to the book

So The Shining Is the Prequel Of IT?, And The Stand Is At the IT CHAPTER 1, RIGHT? (i mean that sprayed wall at the (i can't mention who's that fat kid) after he looks down we saw pennywise was at the wheels!, so IT Is the sequel of all STEPHEN KINGS NOVELS!.)

Is it me or are people complaining about that orgy scene from IT and it’s fucking annoying Yes it’s disturbing to read but if you read the book it was a solution of how to escape by losing their innocence from leaving their childhood into adulthood I will always defend Stephen king I love his books
Love the stand but I don't think any book will ever make me feel what I felt while reading IT. Such an emotional journey. ITs definitely my number one.

There are so many books to choose from. Around 60 books or so. And there are so many great books. So many could have made the top 10. Its mostly a personal preferation. I miss Rose Madder on the list and Geralds game. Rose Madder for its realistic portrayl of a violent psycotic husband, and all the horrors that comes with it. Geralds Game, for its simple settings, and its psychological torment. But what i like most about Kings novels, is that many of them functions alone, but are somehow connected to each other. Like IT and Insomnia. You have the Crimson king as an evil behind the scenes in many stories. Speaking of that evil. Desperation is a great novel aswell.
