I love Stephen King in "Creepshow."
I keep forgetting about Creepshow. This one traumatized 5 year old Union.

"Meteor s***!"
"Jordy Verrill, you lunkhead!"
Discovering where else the green stuff is: "Oh, no, not there!

Brilliant!  :lol:

I tried to get through The Stand when I was a young lad and avid reader.  I couldn't do it.

I have read:

"The Shining"
"Needful Things"

I'm amazed that this thread got brought back to life, when there was a different thread on page 2 of this forum.

I had two false starts with it myself, but on the third attempt I could NOT put it down.  It remains my favorite King book, and many King readers feel the same.

I got into King when I got a job at a bookstore.  "Misery" was his new hardcover then, and I bought it and read it.  Then I was off to the races.  Strangers would see me reading King and start conversations with me.  They all kept saying The Stand was his best, and I'd never even heard of it before - it was an older book and hadn't been made into a movie (yet).  So then I gave it a try, and as I said, it didn't grab me the first two tries; third time was the charm.  What was I thinking those first two attempts?  This book is awesome!
