with more than 100 characters... only King does it :D


How do you ever remember that much characters? :shock:

I would have to go back in the book, and search where the character was first introduced, to know who someone is, when he/she comes along on page 500 or something. :?

That's the key. The way he constructs it, it is not that difficult. Some are minor, some a are major. I have not read it, so can't comment further on it.

I recently watched Stephen King's series Kingdom Hospital based on Lars Von Trier's The Kingdom and it was absolutely brilliant, I recommend everyone check it out. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_hospital

YOu definitely have to check all the new Nostalgia Critic's out. They're really AWESOME!

Coincidentally I watched some of his 5-second movies on YouTube yesterday, so at least a couple of them are still on. :)

King's work traps you in a web of its own. Which is wrapped around you, and you are just busy reading. :D

Desperation and The Regulators are pretty underrated, I really loved these two. Fast-paced, action packed, gory, suspenseful, and fun! What's not to love?

I'm also a fan of Stephen King. The first book I read was The shining, and then I watched the movie. I like both, more the book, but Jack Nicholson also does a good work. Since this, I started to buy SK's books.

I´ve finished reading the book of "The Shining" and I like it more than the movie. The movie is much different and there wasn´t really taken care of how how people are described in the book (also from the outside looks) and lots of occasions are just left out and the ending is totally different.
