    Hmmmm...to each their own, of course, but that is one strange list there, Girl, IMO, no offence.

    To me, every book written Steve is the best book out there ( like you just proved to me with your first list ), the only thing is if I personally like some more than others.

    Cheers.

    Most favorite:

    1. Dark tower, all of it. (and I can do that, because its a series, baby!)
    2. Rose Madder
    3. The Talisman/Black House (oh yes, a possible trilogy, so I can do that, too!)
    4. Lisey's Story
    5. Bag of Bones/ IT tie

    Less than favorite (but still not bad)
    1. Tommyknockers (okay, that one was really bad to me, but I'm terrified of aliens...so...)
    2. From a Buick 8
    3. Cell (yeah, I liked it, but not as much as the others)

    and that's it. 5 least favorite is asking too much of me, my head would explode.

    Going to have to agree with Srbo. Worst and Stephen King doesn't fit for me. I do like some more than others, but never could catorgize one as worst.
