    Anyone else love this man's work? I saw the new Carrie movie last night (it was all right) and read the book in one sitting last night; am currently reading through Christine now! I have read all of his books and am in the process of rereading all of them...read IT and 'Salem's Lot a month ago. His characters are so realized and the situations he puts them in so harrowing...

    stephen king is amazing. contrary to all his die hard fans, i strongly prefer his more recent work, like dreamcatcher and under the dome and duma key. (not a fan of the 'under the dome series', however.)

    i read under the dome in probably two days flat, which is quite an accomplishment considering its girth.

    as for the dark tower series--it was very flawed and spotty at first, but i stuck with it because i had faith in him and i was not disappointed. it was awesome to learn that the dude from salem's lot is gay.

    hearts in atlantis is super underrated. i was glad that he revisted that 'feel' with duma key; the forlorn, sad and beautiful palette of artistry really struck a chord with me.

    and then you have the actual horror of 'insomnia', which actually *did* deprive me of sleep due to fear after reading it!

    as a fiction writer myself, i've even gleaned a few tips and tricks from his memoir, 'on writing'. he and i are in completely different classes and categories, not to mention genres, but there are a few things that all writer have in common.
