John Reeves | 17 comments One of the things that make Stephen King's stories so great are his characters. They have lots of texture and seem very real. From the minor characters to the major characters, King creates people we all know. People we can identify with. Then he does things with them and to them, that keeps us turning the pages.


Who are your top 3 Stephen King characters?

message 29: by Alondra (new)

Alondra | 308 comments The Walking Man; Randall Flagg, The Man in Black (??).

He is terrifying and makes an appearance in one way or the other in all of kings works. I don't like evil or evil-doings, just this characterization of it. The depth of a character that we really know nothing about. We know what he does. What he is capable of; but who is he really? Is he an instrument of the Tower or is the Tower an instrument of his?
