Blaze and Joyland were two others that pulled at my heart strings. Stephen King has always made me think of good times, though. He can make me laugh like a madman. He writes about death, yes, but more often than not I'm thinking of his optimism and patriotism. He's documented rural Americana (baseball, small town hubbub, academia, beer and rock music) like no other writer. His books are packed with emotion and, similar to Grace Metalious' Peyton Place, reflect the world in which I grew up.
Blaze in particular was very heart wrenching. It was just so very sad.
