now, eh, i'm sure i'd enjoy rereading some of the good ones.

i am looking forward to this new movie, "secret window" which stars johnny depp and john turturro.

oh yeah and know what's annoying? the american version of lars von trier's "the kingdom" is called motherfucking "STEPHEN KING'S KINGDOM HOSPITAL"!!! what the fuck is that shit?!

like you'd think he'd be embarrassed about that!

and "kingdom hospital" alone would be such a stupider title, even

of course he wrote it, it's about a writer in maine haunted by a supernatural dude in a hat who accuses him of plagiarism!

don't really get all of that from the commercials. just that it's spooky and has john turturro.

they aren't even advertising this film as by Stephen King, so maybe they've realized that his name attached to a film = box office death these days.

"Dreamcatcher" had the worst ending I have ever seen in a film.

"I read the Mist today, and boy was it scary!"

If you can find it, there's a audio dramatization of the Mist available on cassete. The cool thing about it is that it's in three-dimensional sound, which gives the story an extremely spooky effect.

This is so true. His were the first "adult" books I got into reading, as a kid. (I remember learning about most aspects of sex -- except the nuts and bolts, of course, which my mom taught me -- from Stephen King books.) And I think he made for a pretty good segue into the more usual fiction, when I became a preteen... (Because, y'know, he writes about couples and relationships and people musing about their lives and all that shit... just with monsters.)

And I remember "It," which I read in sixth grade, as being one heck of a great book.

He was always somebody I knew of growing up -- he was that big by the late seventies when I first heard of him thanks to The Shining's adaptation, and he still is, Harlan Ellison called him sui generis and I think he nailed it. But I never really got into him -- it wasn't that I didn't like his work as I read it, I just tended to look elsewhere. But what few short stories I've read of his capture a certain beautiful atmosphere of the physical land itself are gripping, and it occurs to me that some of his greatest strengths aren't the obvious ones.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 23 February 2004 06:11 (10 years ago) Permalink

I will throw in a few more cents: those Dark Tower books (the few that I read -- first three or four?) = disappointing dud; the first half of "The Stand" = awesome, but the 2nd half = dud; a few of those "Bachman Books" = Classic. "Eye of the Dragon" (is that what it's called?) = totally classic.

morris pavilion (samjeff), Monday, 23 February 2004 06:24 (10 years ago) Permalink

Stand by Me = classic. No question. period. end. over. The Best.

sunjammerr, Monday, 23 February 2004 06:49 (10 years ago) Permalink

Oh, duh! Secret Window was in Four Past Midnight. I knew it looked familiar.

I think his stuff in the last decade or so is unbearable nostalgic crap, I still think his first 15 years had a few genuinely great novels (The Dead Zone and Pet Sematary seem to stand up the best) and a boatload of really scary scenes (the Lincoln Tunnel sequence in The Stand, Ben's Hubie Marston nightmare in 'Salem's Lot).

At this point, though, I'd wager that most of his stuff made for better movies, at least when real directors (as opposed to Frank Darabont) were at the helm. Carrie, The Shining, and Christine are all way beyond the source material. And Cujo, The Dead Zone and 'Salem's Lot are all great movies in their own right.

I always liked his short stories. The one with the tiny army men, and the one about the kid's dad with the bad 6-pack of beer and the cats in the wall... I haven't read The Mist since I was in that 10-15 age range. I liked it a lot then. Does it hold up?

There's an audio-CD of the Mist that's great. You have to listen to it with headphones, but they did a great job with the surround sound (for ~1993 when I heard it).

Yeah, Bachman books - classic. The 4 stories in "Different Seasons" are pretty good. The only one not made into a movie was my favourite - The Long Walk. Basically a near-future-reality-show concept piece. Very simple: 100 people (mostly young) start walking down a highway. If you drop below 4 miles per hour, you get a warning. After the 3rd warning, you are shot dead (the military follow your progress). Last one alive "wins" (you get whatever you want). I almost hope reality TV goes this way someday...

You could just take them out of the running instead of shooting them. Some people might argue that only the threat of death can provide sufficient motivation to determine the "real" winner. Anyway, 4mph isn't very fast.

Stuart (Stuart), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:14 (10 years ago) Permalink

Average normal pedestrial walking speed is like 3.375 mph.

Stuart (Stuart), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:17 (10 years ago) Permalink

Are you getting Different Seasons confused with The Bachman Books, Rob? The Breathing Method is the only story out of DS that wasn't filmed: The Running Man is the only one of BBs that was.

Short stories: great. Dark Tower also good in principle (the first one was only good enough to get me vaguely interested in the seond one, which was great), but if it turns out that I'd have to read all his other books to understand the next volume, I'll be pissed off.

You have to reckon he's jumped the shark when he starts making TV miniseries of all his longer stories, including The Shining. Apparently the film was fine, but not what he was looking for.

And Christine to thread!

Good things about Stephen King:

1. The Shining
2. The Strand was good as I recall though the middle 500 pages dragged a bit
3. He wrote some book about dragons. I forget what it was called but dragons are so awesome.
4. His short stories I think are generally excellent, and much different from his fiction. They're published in the New Yorker and other such magazines quite often. He had an excellent one about highway restroom graffiti.
5. Also he got hit by a truck, which is so crazy. Then he wrote lots of memoirs about being hit by a truck. The one celebrity we have in the whole state of Maine gets mauled by a drunk driver. I thought we should have put his giant creepy head on our state quarter, but apparently that wasn't taken into consideration.

least scary element in a bad s.k. novel: killer coke machine in the tommyknockers. course, he was high on coke at the time, so it makes sense. i kinda love the fact that he doesn't remember writing cujo. If you had asked me what the great american novel was 20 years ago i would have said The Stand. I love everything up until the novel he doesn't remember writing. it was touch and go after that. hate when he takes a short story idea and adds an extra 700 pages a la Insomnia.

True. This is the beauty of the contest. The 100 starters can go on for quite a while before the 1st person is shot, which is obviously a sobering event for the remaining 99. Only after about 48 hours things start to go a bit crazy. People start to freak out, as one would expect. Dunno why that story stuck with me for so long - it's a disturbing concept.

then why "stephen king's kingdom hospital"?

-- s1ocki

Stephen King signing on to the Kingdom remake is the only thing that got it made; it's been in and out of production for years, so I assume they're tagging it with his name because they aren't confident in it except as a King vehicle (whereas a Johnny Depp movie is a Johnny Depp movie, and you really don't need the Inspector 13 tag.

I haven't seen Dreamcatcher and don't know if I will, but coming so soon after the extended discussion of "trunk novels" in Bag of Bones (which, love it or hate it, is considerably different in scope, tone, and approach), and King's subsequent accident and public difficulties with returning to writing, I half-assumed it was a trunk novel itself. It certainly reads like one.

Tep (ktepi), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:54 (10 years ago) Permalink

I recall something about the first story in the Bachman books (Rage) causing a stir because it depicted a fed-up high school kid coming to school with a gun and having a little kill-fest. Apparently it was reading material for a real-life high-school-rage-murder tragedy, but don't recall when/where.

Rob Bolton (Rob Bolton), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:56 (10 years ago) Permalink

He's great at writing a near-perfect example of a sub-genre. IE Rage is a great "high school shooting" story, The Long Walk is just one beautiful idea, "Survivor Type" is a great cannibal story..

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:57 (10 years ago) Permalink

"Incidently, 'Rage' is the only novel that King admits he wishes he never wrote. Several similar incidents have occured across the United States, and Rage has been mentioned in connection with them. Considering how sympathetic King is to his protagonist, it's easy to see how disillusioned teens could come to identify with its themes"

oh, but classic! cuz even though i don't read his new stuff i still dig him. he's such a kook, and he never makes me cringe really. which is more than i can say for most people who have been in the public eye as long as he has. search:Carrie, Salem's Lot, The Shining, Rage, Night Shift, The Stand, The Dead Zone, Danse Macabre, Firestarter, Different Seasons, Needful Things, The Dark Half, Pet Semetary, Misery, Skeleton Crew, and Thinner (even if you are older than 10-15)

Stuart (Stuart), Monday, 23 February 2004 16:16 (10 years ago) Permalink

The best Stephen King audio I've heard -- although the person I heard it with says The Mist one is great, too -- is "1408," the haunted hotel room story from Blood and Smoke, his audio-only thing. The first time I heard it was in the middle of the night, in the middle of a ten hour road trip through east Texas and southern Louisiana, which probably added a lot to the overall effect.

Tep (ktepi), Monday, 23 February 2004 16:31 (10 years ago) Permalink

the langoliers is really cool too.

i mean the thing with stephen king is he's really good at writing really readable stuff, and he has some neat ideas, but man oh man does he repeat himself. which is kind of interesting in a way, i guess. it's like he applies whatever good idea he has to the basic mold of "writer in maine" and lets it rip.

(obviously that applies more to the novels)

Just posted this in ILBooks, don't know how many read that thread so:

Just finished Hearts in Atlantis, picked up in a thrift store for a vacation read. The first, lengthy segment is King in the bicycles, baseball, bullies and boogeymen nostalgia mode of It, and I'll always enjoy him in that mode even when it's not his best (the Low Men in Yellow Coats are kind of wtf villains, and then he just abandons them anyway.) And I did like how he threaded the following stories into this one.

Potential spoiler alert, but I don't think so:

King tosses in offhand references here to what I believe are books of his I haven't read: regulators, breakers, a dark tower, beams, Crimson King... yes? (I read The Gunslinger and disliked it enough to not follow up.)

I can now talk a little more freely about DOCTOR SLEEP. It's a real letdown, folks. It has a fantastic opening that dives right into the Overlook aftermath, and then jets ahead to Danny as a shiftless drunkard adult -- great stuff because of how heartbreaking it is to see Danny that way. And then, man oh man, does the book turn into mush. Basically Danny becomes the typical SK earthy-yet-perfect protagonist and the action is relegated to two characters duking it out physically, which is about as interesting on the page as computer hacking is on screen. The are virtually no stakes. After a string of very good books from SK, this is big clunker.

I was recently re-reading The Dark Half, which I probably haven't read in 20 years or more, and noticed the clever (or "clever") trick he pulls in the opening chapter. He gets all the exposition/back story out of the way by having the main character in the book you are reading read a magazine article about himself.

Marlo Poco (Phil D.), Tuesday, 24 September 2013 02:30 (11 months ago) Permalink

Currently reading Under The Dome and it's fairly entertaining as long haul King epics go, but his occasional attempts to speak directly to the reader and guide him to the next part of the story are jarring and terrible and have no place in this book.

"Let us go then, you and I, while the evening spreads out against the sky."
"We'll stop for a quick check on Barbie and Rusty shall we?"
"Let us float through certain half-deserted streets..."

He even goes so far as to tell us we are invisible and the people we drift past will only feel a faint draft from us. Awful stuff.

I remember reading a Terry Pratchett book that employed the same "let us float over" technique and hated it then too. I'm generally opposed to any "dear reader" breaking of walls.

Also jarring and off-putting "One fisted hand is pressed between the scant nubs of her breasts as she looks at that pink freak of a moon." - do we, dear readers, really need to know the size of this 13-year-old girl's breasts?
