    Having a poor memory has its advantages. I've recently re-read several King books that I hadn't read in twenty years or so. I couldn't remember 90% of the plots. I just started "Rose Madder" and can't remember a thing about it except it was during King's domestic abuse period where all men were drunken abusers (unless they were English teachers or authors). For the most part, I've enjoyed them more than I recall from the initial reading. For example, Gerald's Game has some very effective creepy scenes that I didn't remember. Cujo has a dark and angry backstory.

    The only one I have very little memory of is Under the Dome. I remember some things, including the basic story, but it is the one I remember the least about. I say it's because I read it too quickly! It took me maybe three days to read it when it first came out. :) I remember enjoying it at the time... but it is definitely time for a reread.

    None--all the ones I read all the way through and the short stories I've read--I remember very well. Sometimes I replay them in my head when I can sleep.

    I thought I was the only one to forget plots of the stories... I remember very little about short stories, I guess there are just too many stories I read in a short period of time, so as time goes I remember only whose that I loved most and just can't forget because they impessed me so much.

    Well, I know i had problems getting through Gunslinger. Actually started a kind of negative bias towards the DT-series for me which isn't exactly fair towards the rest. But i had trouble with Tolkien too in the beginning... I mean, that silly birthdayparty and the rather uneventful journey until they met Aragorn. ( And i don't count Tom Bombadill, I always thought he was rather silly too). He didn't seem to know what to do with his characters. Then things started to happen. It is the same with DT to some extent in my opinion. The first book is to me a kind of trial run so to speak just like the beginning of Lord of the Rings.

    I usually don't realize how much I have forgotten until I read it again. Usually I have the basic plot down, but there are so many details I forget most of them. Which is one reason I absolutely love re-reading King books. Hubby makes fun of me for not remembering stuff and can't fathom re-reading a book ever.

    Some of you already said this, but while I love all the short stories and read them, I have to go remind myself which one is in which book. Some of them stick out more than others.

    Yeah, I remember almost nothing of that book. When I get time, I should read it again, too.

    Rose Madder. I recall a few things about it, but nothing too defining. Everything else, no problem.
