When I first moved to the Island, 11 years ago, I lived in residence at UPEI. We had an event, SPOOKS (Students Patrolling Our Outdoors for Kid's Safety, or something like that). Basically, we went trick-or-treating for kids in the hospital. Well, we went to one place on Gerald Street (I could be wrong on the location) and I'm telling you, the guy must have been a HUGE King fan. His Halloween decorations in his yard were tombstones, all with names of King characters. I noticed and mentioned "So who's the Stephen King fan?" He became so elated, "Finally! Someone noticed!" and we went on to have a conversation about a few books. I thought it was neat! :D

I am reading the Dark Tower series now. I had read the first 4 years ago, but just finally got around to get the last books recently. I enjoyed the Wolves of Calla, but the last 2 books (Song of Susannah & the Dark Tower) have been a let down for me.


Me too...it's been a while since I read the series, but I remember thinking the same thing. It seemed to me like King just wanted to get it over with, lol.

I read Dumas Key shortly after it was released, and I must've started and re-started that beast about six times. Finally got through it. It did NOT hold my interest at all. Because of that I hesitated on buying Under The Dome, but was glad I did...really enjoyed it, and was happy to see King back to "normal".

Favourite King novel made into a movie: The Green Mile
