    My input for underrated novel is Roadwork. Very few seem to like it very much, and most consider it the "weakest" of the Bachman books.

    But to me, Roadwork is one of King's best stories. It's one...

    I also did not like Revival all that much. However, I seem to be on the opposite pole as much of the criticism I've read. I thought the ending was by far the best part of the book. It was the first...

    I bought a S/L book and upon removing the shrinkwrap discovered that one of the two-page art inserts was stuck together. When opening the pages, they actually ripped apart. Another book was missing...

    King was a bit harsh on his opinion of recent S/L editions. However, I do agree with his overall point. A book is meant to be read. I've got about 50 of his S/L'd, and guess what? I actually read...

    This is completely bogus. It's obvious the seller had a shill or two try to bid it up and when the top bid was either won by his shill or wasn't the high price he wanted, he just said "fuck it; I'm...

    Sure it is the same book, but not the same limitation. If I have number, say, #331, I know that no one else has that number. If I have a book with a blank line or "PC" then any number of shmucks...

    I voted The Stand, 'Salem's Lot, The Shining, Christine, and Wizard and Glass.

    It was very hard leaving Night Shift, Different Seasons, and Desperation off the list, but no room!

    Have you read Phantoms? It's one of the best, and from his "older stuff." I also liked Watchers and Whispers.

    I agree. I don't see myself ever reading a book on a computer or a phone or whatever. There's just something about a real honest-to-life book that speaks to me.

    One thing I found interesting about The Stars My Destination and The Demolished Man is that in both cases the main character is not a person the reader can really sympathize with. Typically, the...

    S/L Gunslinger and then The Drawing of the Three. If I could somehow get #464, that would be super bonus!

    Tick Tock was not all that good but it's a quick read. Koontz has done better.

    I don't get it. The Amazon link goes to reviews and such of the last book in the series (Dark Tower VII). That's where all the negative reviews are coming from--people that didn't like the ending...

    For me, Desperation is top-5 King, or possibly top 7 or 8. The Regulators is like bottom 2. The only reason it's not rock bottom is because there's always Gerald's Game to claim that spot. ...
