    OH and P.S. --- If I Could add a 6 and 7 to the "best" list.... because they are so close, I would add

    6) The Eyes of the Dragon
    7) The Green Mile

    Hell.... they are ALL great.... my "worst" list above is really just a "preferred them the least" list. I still liked them all to a degree.

    Now that I've read enough for this-

    BEST-
    1. IT: This book was really amazing! I personally think this was the best book i've ever read. I just totally connected to it.
    2. Needful things: I've recently finished this and for some reason to me it was like the stand on a smaller and more interesting level.
    3. The stand: This was one big @## book that was REALLY good in my eyes and truly i liked the ending even though many didn't.
    4. Carrie: This was just a fun book that was really good for a full novel.
    5. The Shining: This was the last book i read and this book was just good! It was as scary as pet sematary in my eyes but better in many ways.

    Worst:
    1. Insomnia: I still really like this book but the plot didn't really pick up until after a while. I still recommend it!
    2. Pet sematary: This was an ok book but the plot was really just disturbing but not that great. Love the ending though.
    3. From a buick 8: Still find it to be good but not as good as the ones i read after.
    4. Cycle of the werewolf: It really was just an okayish short story in it's own book.
    5. Cujo: The only king book that i truly didn't enjoy but i must reread soon.

    Note:
    I have read many more but didn't include some because of short story collections (i've read night shift and now on everything's eventual and i have skeleton crew to read) and i didn't include the dark tower books i've read (book 1 and 2 and after i have 3 and 4 to read). I've also read dolores claiborne and on writing.

    I think I just had a heart murmur when I seen "The Gunslinger" on the WORST 5.

    "Don't have any "worst" ones but can tell you scariest was "The Shining", funniest "Christine" and most disturbing was "Pet Sematary"

    I second that. I've seen Rose Madder on both lists...interesting.

    5 Best:

    1) 11/22/63
    2) Wizard & Glass
    3) Wolves of the Calla
    4) Eyes of the Dragon
    5) Misery

    Five Worst

    1) Dream Catcher. (Haven't finished this one.)
    2) Desperation (still liked this one pretty good though.)
    I don't like the word worst, I can't really give any more than these two.

    My Five Favourites (I can't say best, I haven't read all of Sai King's books yet):

    1) 'Salem's Lot
    2) Duma Key
    3) Wolves of the Calla
    4) On Writing
    5) The Dark Half

    Books I still liked but they didn't really meet my standards of King:

    1) Carrie
    2) Cujo

    .... that is all.
