    I can remember most pretty well, but in Four past Midnight I can hardly remember Library Policeman and Sun Dog. I remember the basic plot, but not so much of what actually happened.

    In Different Seasons I can remember the first three stories very well, but even though I know what The Breathing Method refers to and remember the climax, I remember little else.

    I remember almost nothing of From A Buick 8. I know I read it but nothing stuck with me.

    I vaguely remember an older car, something with the trunk and the kid's father being a policeman. That's about it.

    Not a lot about Dolores Claiborne stayed with me. I read it and Gerald's Game at a very different time in my life than now, so that might explain part of why I didn't like either story very much. I couldn't relate to either story, too. I was really ready for Jessie to either die from blood loss or someone to find her. Stupid woman shouldn't have been handcuffing herself to the headboard to begin with. :biggrin2:

    Cujo.

    Dog, bats, rabies. Mother and kid in sweltering car. I think someone in uniform gets chewed, but not too sure, and I had to think hard to sorta remember that. Ending I didn't like (which may account for the deleted memories). That is all I remember of it.

    I don't recall most of it either-selective memory. According to SK, he doesn't remember much about writing it either. Thank God he remembers a lot more these days! :smile-new:

    I think basically the ones you forget, you simply don't like that much. I recall that now vaguely about the ones I forgot.

    It's always possible though you weren't ready for something at the time, and may like it now better.

    Short storys. Alot of times I forget the Titles. I remember its a short story but can't ever remember which one.
     
  16. EMARX

    EMARX One book at a time......okay sometimes two.

    The ones I liked the best seem to leave the most stray images and storylines in my mind.

    HollyGolightly Dancing in the rain

    Pretty much everything I read from 2000 - 2005. I was either pregnant, nursing, not getting any sleep. I'm pretty sure I read SK during that time, I have the books to prove it, but I don't remember a darn thing. Lisey's Story, Everything's Eventual, From a Buick 8. Those were tough years.

  20. The Nameless

    The Nameless M-O-O-N - That spells Nameless

    Library Policeman is a bit thin on the ground for me too, Langoliers has stuck with me since I read it because I loved it, but I just thought L.P and Sun Dog were ok. I can remember a bit more of Sun Dog than L.P.

    I can't remember a great deat about the gunslinger, I know the overall story, but not many details are too sharp anymore. I do remember that I liked it - which is quite rare around these parts, but it was the revised version (which is said to be easier reading).

    Pet Sematary - a little while ago I couldn't even remember Louis' name, just that it was something Creed. As I type now, I can't remember his wifes name or Pascow's 1st name, and it is just from reading the back of my book just now, that I know the moved from Chicago. There's a few holes in this one.
