    My best appreciated:

    1. IT – Ruined clowns and Chinese food for me forever!
    2. The Stand – “Come down and eat chicken with me beautiful. It's soooo dark” gave me both shivers and laughs!
    3. 11/22/63 – Impeccable!
    4. The Gunslinger – Hey Jude and magical fruit!
    5. Desperation - the very first King novel I ever read - bought it at an airport to punish myself after fighting with a loved one, turned out to be one of my wisest decisions!

    I probably would not reread:

    1. Tommyknockers - a failed experiment IMHO
    2. The Wolves of Calla - weakest DT book IMHO
    3. The Regulators - not a Power Rangers fan
    4. Dreamcatcher – over-sentimental or maybe I'm getting too jaded
    5. The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon - a hit and a miss

    Top five for me:

    1. The Dead Zone.
    2. On Writing.
    3. The Stand.
    4. Misery
    5. Danse Macabre (it's been a long time since I read it, but I remember enjoying it)

    There's only been two I didn't like, and I know that I'm realllllly going against the grain, but....

    2. Cujo.
    1. IT. .....almost turned me away from SK books. I'm glad it didn't.
