really liked it

I have seen the movie Stand By Me many times and I thought it was about time that I finally read the book. The movie followed the book almost exactly to my surprise. It was a nice change to actually read about the characters and follow them along on their adventure as supposed to watching them on screen. There were some moments at the end of the book that I didn't actually care for and that were changed in the movie that made me prefer the movie better. But, that may have been because I saw the movie first.

I haven't read too many Stephan King books before, but I will have to say this one is my favourite. Anyone who hasn't read a King book before should definitely start with this one, and anyone who hasn't read this one should pick it up.
