    Same here - 1986? It was my first Barker. I barely remember the storyline, but I do remember being really impressed and liking it - very much.

      The list is long, but the main three are Ghost Story, Clockwork Orange, and Lord of the Flies (probably because the movie made me cry). I feel the need to bow my head in shame just typing this.

            Teri doesn't like much.

            I remember liking it when I read it in high school but thats a while back. I have wanted to reread it but haven't had the time.

                I also remember liking Lord of the Flies when I read it as a required read in school. That and 1984 were both good. Didn't care much for the Shakespeare stuff I read during classes.

                If it's not King Teri doesn't really care much for it typically, lol

                  I wasn't a big fan of Lord of the Flies either. I also had to read "All Quiet on the Western Front", "Animal Farm", and "The Jungle". Animal Farm and The Jungle weren't bad, but All Quiet on the Western Front was horribly boring. So boring I don't even remember what it was about.

                    You should have taken the hint from the title "All Quiet"!!!

                      I really don't and its not that I ONLY like King I just like to read what I know I am going to like. As for LOTF I was forced to read that in high school and I hated it but alot of that was due to teachers reading too much into it. Everyone knows the general meaning of that story even if you havent read it but the little things they picked into just annoyed the hell out of me. Sometimes a cigar is just a smoke and a story's just a story... and while this may not apply to the entire theme of the story because, yes, there was more to it but everything they picked through made me think just that. I HATE english teachers. They should let you take what you get from a story if thats nothing then its nothing if its more then good for you. Stick to teaching the important shit like Grammar and Spelling.

                        Oh and I hated animal farm in general PLUS for the same reasons as LOTF
