    I'm with Srbo and Spideyman on this one. I think it depends on your likes, dislikes, your interests and what doesn't interest you, i.e., for me Tom Gordon is a don't interest. AND I think it depends on what frame of mind you were in when you read the book!!! I have one book of Mr. King's that I could not get into, even though I had been told by the bookseller that 'she thought it was the best he had ever written'; BUT it still maintains a central place on my bookshelf for another time when my heart is open to it.

    I agree michal!

    I want to cry when I see someone say the DT series or the Gunslinger was the worst. That book was life changing to me! To each his own, I guess!

    I think I am fan of all his books.There are some that I haven't reread yet,but I definitely want to and will do it in a short period of time.I see many point out The Tommyknockers and From A Buick 7 as some of their least favourite,but I actually enjoyed them a lot!!!So,I guess I can't even pick my favourite 5.
