    Jim,
    "It" is one of my favourite SK books, its a great book about childhood as much as anything.
    I'd also recommend 11.22.63, its very long and does spend a lot of time following Oswalds movements but its probably my favourite SK book.
    I also found Joyland to be very enjoyable and its a lot shorter than the above two.

    IT is wonderful. one of my very favorites, if not my favorite. I don't think you can go wrong with it, at least with the exception of one scene towards the end a lot of people get upset by. And honestly, you can just "na-na-na-na-na" over those couple of pages if you want to.

    My screen name is from one of my favorite SK cops, in IT. Makes me laugh every time!

    Will I re-read The Stand?
    Mayhap I will, Mayhap I won't.

    Who am I kidding? Yep.

    It was the first SK book I ever read, 'borrowed' from my babysitter when I was around 10 years old. (Yes, ten.) Though I didn't understand all the nuances of humor or story yet, it was enough to start me on my own journey to the Tower. From there it branched out to Carrie, Night Shift and anything else I could get my hands on. By my teens, I was a full-blown Constant Reader, and have been ever since.

    Insomnia or The Dead Zone are two other good picks to try devouring before digging into the main course of The Dark Tower.

    Sort of, but remember at the end he said in his note he did this of his own free will. At an earlier point he knew he had a choice as nobody in thr Freezone knew him from his previous life and he chose to continue with his old attitudes.
