Natalie | 36 comments Wow, another Stephen King/Richard Bachman fan! I am currently reading the 7th book in the Dark Tower series and I have loved every minute of all of them so far! I cant wait to see how it ends! What did you think of Duma Key? It is on my TBR list, and I generally like Kings work.
By the way, Lord of the Flies is one of my all time favorite books ever!

I loved the end of the Dark Tower! And I think you will love it too.. Stephen's imagination is something unbelievable!
Duma Key? At the beginning it looked as just another book I will put into my already read books list... but finally it was book which made me feeling strange.. it quite scared me (only Shinning had this effect on me) so I liked it:)

Carolt | 9 comments I am not a Stephen King fan but realize that some of his stuff isn't scary stuff and is good. Can you suggest books by him like the Green Mile that have less blood and gore?

I really liked also The Shawshank Redemption or Carrie (I know that in the end of Carrie there is lot of blood.. but the book is about something else..)
