I have been a fan from the beginning and have always shared my King books with my family, they didnt always return them so I have purchased many of the books over and over but I dont mind because the stories are worth it. Books have always been my drug of choice and the best escape from the pressures of my life. Thank you Stephen King for allowing me to be a part of your life through your stories.
Well Mr. King, I have a story that sounds like a lot of others around here; I was given a somewhat tattered, and of timberland boots course, well read, copy of Pet cemetery by my sister when I was 9. I simultaneously was scared and delighted by every page, and have been hooked on your books ever since. The Dark Tower books were by far my favorites by you, but there were many others along the way, I assure you! Thank you for sharing these incredible writings with us, your Constant Readers! I just picked up a copy of 11/22/63 and I chomping at the bit to sit down and sink into it. Feels like having coffee with an old friend! Also, looks like a great job from what I seen on the Bag of Bones series. book I hated to read, even though I was in advanced English classes. Mt best friend loved to read was always trying to get me to read the book she was reading. With my love for horror films she decided one day to try something different. She brought home Lot. I read it from cover to cover on the first day. Now, I own over 50 Stephen King books, most of them first editions. I read most of them more than once. I talk about his books and/or stories like most people talk about what they watched on TV. I actually dread the end of a good story but also can wait to begin a new one. i will be buying the second season of haven as soon as it comes out it was a great series. also cant wait til he does a series or a movie on the dark tower books. keep em coming king your excellent at what you do. Like so many other i have read and own every book that comes out. I love settleing down with one of your books and am immediately transfered into that world wherever it may be. I could actually smell that pie in thinner and feel the pain of the gunslinger on the beach with the lobstrosities[hope i spelled that right]. Thank you for bringing those worlds[stories]into my life. If ever you are in wpg canada i would love to meet and get a book signed by you. Long live that magic pen[computor] and unique imagination of yours.
I have read many an Bag Of Bones was My Fav read it again just last year in three days I was hoping you would make it into a movie. But i hope you made it as good as the book I couldn Put it down the first tome an it kept me on the edge of my sit I cant even find a scary movie these days that can do that I would rather read your books. bag Of Bones made me cry, laugh, worry something was under my bed, made me mad at that crazy old man an his nurse/ slash right hand man. You make me feel apart of the story like I am there. I Love your Books and your incredible talent. You ROCK Mr. King!
The only thing good about Bag O Bones is that I never have to watch it again. Lousy dialogue, cliched characters, an incoherent plot, and everything else about this A production took what could have been a just plain bad TV movie and shaped it into a monumental waste of four hours of a valuable life. Mine! . Even Pierce Brosnan clever use of an abnormally large meat tenderizer couldn save this tripe! (pardon the pun ) And what was it, one hour of so called story and three hours of commercials ? If I hadn been hypnotized by the sheer ludicrousness of this production I would have tuned out and done something more enjoyable, like putting my hand into the garbage disposal or calling my ex wife. God almighty, whose idea was it to put money into this production ? Shame on you A !.
Boy, ttulco, I SO agree. I read the book and looked forward to the film, but it was agonizing to watch. Truly, there had to be more time devoted to commercials than to the story.
Years ago I read and to this day I make a wide berth around sewer openings. No one can convince me that a clown doesn exist there and is just waiting to grab my foot to pull me in. Hitchcock had a similar effect on me! I NEVER close the door of a motel/hotel room until I checked the shower in the bathroom. And I ALWAYS pull open an opaque shower curtain in every bathroom I enter in my friends homes. You think a woman of (a certain age) would have gotten over such quirks, wouldn you?!
