    Duma is Top 5 on my Stephen King list. Can't even explain how special that book is to me.

    I always thought "The Stand" would be my favorite King book, but I've listened to this on audio 4 times now. Each time it seems to get better. The first chapter of this book is BY FAR the single best chapter he has ever written.
    I haven't read The Stand in 3 years or so (It was an annual thing for a decade) but I think it's been displaced on the top of my list.

    It blew me away, I just could not put it down. I developed such a connection with the characters, he really caught pure emotion for me in this one. Amazing description of the locations as well. This would make a great movie, if done right.

    The ending, like the last 2 pages, there came a part that I'm sure hit a lot of us pretty hard, and I was sitting there like AHHHHHH NOOOOO!

    I'd love a sequel for this one on down the road, much like how everyone wondered whatever happened to Dan Torrance.. Maybe Edgar takes over a certain hotel, and begins to paint! :)

    I think this because my top 3 scariest SK books when I finished. I haven't felt this chill up my spine since Jerusalem's Lot and a little in Bag of Bones. I do think this book is underrated. More people really should read.
