    Brian is putting together ideas for the promotion for Revival and needs your help. What do you think are Steve's 5 darkest works--these could be novels, stories, or story collections?

    This is hard! Yeah, I get the whole 'horror' thing, but Mr. King is actually one of the most moral, hopeful writers I've ever read--his books shine far more often than they 'darkle'.

    I'll put my reasons here in spoilers in case anyone hasn't read all the works I've listed above.
    Pet Sematary: As dark as King gets. Dead cat, dead student, dead child, revived child, dead wife, revived wife. There are things worse than death, King shows us.
    Cujo: The boy dies. The dog dies.
    The Long Walk: 99 boys die, and the one survivor is driven insane. While America watches.
    Misery: The kidnapping and systematic torture of an author by a crazed fan. Hits close to home.
    The Shining: Everything about The Overlook Hotel is evil, and that evil triumphs over a man already damaged by alcohol, child abuse, and broken dreams.
  8. No fair that's six (skimom2)...........;;D

    Spot on FF/ would add those to my FDNS. Excellent reasoning.

    Pet Sematary for all the reasons fush listed.

    Needful Things is very dark to me, just because of the
    human nature side...how far people will go to get something they want.

    Full Dark, No Stars

  12. Anyone else wondering how "dark" Revival is going to be if the promotion MIGHT be centered around SK's darkest works?

    Oh goodie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. I think of dark as being the evil in man's mind. I haven't read Full Dark, No Stars so I'm going to go with...

    Needful Things
    Bag of Bones
    Under the Dome
    Secret Window
    Apt Pupil
