I havent read much of King's work. I can buy this for really cheap. Ive read some reviews and it seems to be that diehard fans are not liking pic related. Heres the thing though, I havent always agreed with the taste of these fans, and I've found things that they dislike to my liking and vice versa, so Im thinking I might like it. anyoje here read it yet? or perhaps it might be too early and no onoe has. in any case I like short story collections and I've been thinking of getting Everything's Eventual by King. is it worth it? only 8 buckaroos.
His short works are usually good, OP. As for his other books...The Dark Tower saga, the Stand and It are pretty good. Also Bag of Bones is also quite good because his writing style in this one particular book is amazing.
Important, read Insomnia before The Dark Tower. Read The Stand after TDT.
If you like short stories, get Skeleton Crew. It includes Gramma, which is one of his most famouse stories. (Haven't read it though)
If you want to read several good books that are somehow connected, read It, Insomnia, Needful Things, Cujo and A Bag of Bones. They all happen in the same area and in the same years.
Probably because the average King fan is a stupid teenager or an old slow fat guy. Insomnia might seem a bit difficult to understand to some people, because it mostly explains things about The Dark Tower, several dimensions, how the universe works and so. However, the book talks about it while you follow the typical suspense Stephen King story. I liked it a lot. You could also read it midway through The Dark Tower series and it would still be good.
The entire point of Dr. Sleep was completely nonsensical. The villains were even more cartoonish than King usually writes his antagonists, and even worse was that he went out of his way to show how utterly incompetent they were. It was just a garbage book.
It's almost as if he doesn't give a shit about writing anymore but knows his fanboys and fangirls will eat up whatever he shits out. I guess if I could rake in the dosh like him i'd do it too.
Regulators is dank and a very funny version of its twin, Desperation. Tommyknockers, Pet Sematary, It are great scares. The Long Walk is a good short story. The Stand... nice but the ending sucks imo. The Dark Tower is good.
