I just finished reading Bag of Bones by Stephen King. It's always an experience reading one of his books--a good one--and I usually can't stop thinking about what I've read for days. Bag of Bones was no exception.
Everything about King's work is unique. The voice, the setting, the characters, the plot. Killer dogs, talking cars, houses that seem to come alive. Witches, demons, werewolves, mind-readers, Tommyknockers--anything and everything macabre is in play and liable to come through the floors, thirsty for someone's soul.
Thirty years ago, King was one of those writers I admired. Today, he still is. I think it's safe to say he's contributed greatly to my desire to become a writer.
Thanks Mr. King!
- Salem's Lot
- The Shining
- The Dead Zone
- The Talisman (with Peter Straub)
That's more than 5? I couldn't bear to leave any of these out!
