I am currently on a Stephen King roll. I read a lot of his books but never one after the other - its like you need to take a breather or something. Having ploughed through The Shining, From A Buick 8, On Writing and Cujo all in a row, I am now 30 pages from finishing The Dead Zone. Why not wait till you finish, I hear you ask. Well, cos its all about to come to an end. Its definately the best King book I've read in the batch listed above. They were all great (Buick 8 - not so sure if you could call it great, though. Its one of those plots that you wish you had come up with first (I originally wrote a short story at school where a guy has to go forward in time to assassinate someone who turns out to be himself - similar I suppose). The story flows nicely and keeps you interested. Some of King's books can drag but this ticks along nicely. Well worth checking out, especially if you are more into Kings non-horror.
