One of SK's greatest hits. This was the first King book I read (at age 11), and the one I always recommend to interested readers. What struck me was not the sci-fi/horror elements, but the characters. They felt real, like people I actually knew. Prior to reading that book, all the guys in books or movies who had psychic powers were weirdos or monsters, but King reveals the tragedy and burden that such an ability would likely carry in the real world. And yes, the ending still sticks with me, after all these years.
