    The First Thing that Comes to Mind

    Ok, so if someone says the name "Stephen King" to you, what is the first piece of his work that comes to mind.

    For me, it's Shawshank Redemption.

    Pet Sematary. The first one I read and still one of my top two or three.

      The Stand as it was the first book of his that I read. After that it would probably the Dark Tower because of the amount of books in the series and tied to the series

        The Stand.
        It's the book that has turned me into a constant reader for more than thirty years - and counting.

          The Stand for me as well. I also think of Skeleton Crew since that was the first King book I read.

            The Shining. The first one of his I read and my first lesson in the difference between a book and a movie based on the book. In fact, the movie was what got me to read the book. Great movie, great book.

              It's The Gunslinger hands down. This book (and series) led my imagination to places I never dreamed existed. Sounds corny but it's true.

                For me, that would be "It". Not the first ('Salem's Lot) or the best (Different Seasons) or my favorite (The Stand), but for me "It" is the quintessential Stephen King book, encompassing almost all of his favorite themes and characteristics. And possibly the first book I noticed where his name dominated the cover.

                  It would be Pet Semetary for me as well. Probably the best book he's written, even though Misery comes close.

                    For me it also has to be The Stand. It is the story that took me from a casual reader to a constant reader. Second I would have to give props to The Green Mile because I loved the story being delivered in a serial format.

                      Christine. The first of Stephen King's novels that I owned, and still one of the best. Awesome film, too.

                        I really like Christine-the-novel.
                        Can't really say the same about Christine-the-movie though.

                          I'll admit, it's no Shawshank or Stand By Me. Beats a lot of them though!

                            True.
                            Christine (the movie) fit somewhere in between the bottem of the barrel and the top of the heap.

                              Creepshow, specifically Jordy Verrill.
