So I read the sample of this book an I loved it! I tried reading this book when I was a teen an i remember it didn't enthrall me. But I also was looking for just things that were really scary. So how does book rate on a scale? Just trying to decide what to read next :) i loved the sample an was sad it was over so I think I want to get it. But wanted your guys opinion. It also says the last castle Rock story? What does that mean? Are there ones to read before this? Thanks!

The series isn't an adaptation of any specific book so you wouldn't have it spoiled if you watch the series. It will use characters and themes from Stephen's books but will be completely new stories using the (fictional) town of Castle Rock as the setting.

The Dead Zone, Cujo, The Dark Half and several novellas and stories are set primarily in Castle Rock. There are others, post-Needful Things. It's not necessary but, if you have time, read "The Body" before Needful Things. I think you will be rewarded for this because of how a certain character connects to the novel.

I'm not sure what to expect from the upcoming series.
