Dark Tower Series

Even though its a thinly veiled sex novel.

He frurstrates me, honestly, because I feel he has the talent that his work could be a lot better if he really wanted it to be. But he prefers to, essentially, just have fun, which I guess is fine too. But still, sometimes he reads like a rough draft.

He did do The Dark Tower. His talent reflected there.

I've heard that, and I've been wanting to check it out.

Doctor Sleep, you never told us Jack Nicholson tried to kill you as a child!

Actually, I'm curious to know. What is The dark tower about? I heard good things about.

ome to think of it, I really want a dvd or bluray of Cujo

Was another good one, at least as a movie. Rabid dogs are scary! I hear from my dad, who reads all his books, that some supernatural reason was given in the book that was cut from the film, which would make it harder for me to imagine it actually happening and kinda undercut the scariness for me, but maybe he just described it (and the other books) badly? I should probably check them out since they're in the house, though they look so thick it'd take forever to read compared to just watching a film.
AND BY THE WAY, I WIN

I like it when they mini series off his books instead movies. Because they can tell the precisely without cutting to much out of it. Instead of cramming it into two hours.

Stephen King is a brilliant writer but now its gotten to a point where hes running out of good ideas and he's just trying to see what he can write. So, I think The Dark Tower and 11/22/63 are a masterpiece
