King's early novels were his best Dec 10 2000
By don bass - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I had never read "Salems Lot", nor had I seen the movie. So when I noticed the recent publication in trade paperback I thought I would try it out. It was great. The plot, characters, setting and mood were wonderfully created, and Kings descriptions are magic. It brought me back to the early King works and it seems to me that most of these early books ("Christine", "The Dead Zone", "Different Seasons", "Cujo", "Carrie", "The Firestarter" and "The Stand") were written with better plotting than some of the later stuff. Maybe I'm just showing some disappointment with "Hearts in Adlantis", "Bag of Bones" "Needful things" and "Four Past Midnight" which were not as enthralling. The recent exception is "The Green Mile". Keep writing Mr. King and I'll keep reading.

Simply a great story Oct. 15 2000
By the raven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Ive never been scared by any of King's novels, but have been fasinated by them, unable to put them down in this case. Salems Lot is a story of a town and the people that live in it. Eventually, a vampire comes to town in a manner that is told in an amazing way. It doesn't seem like your typical fantasy/horror story. This seems real!!! Its a great story that proved to me that King is a superb story teller.

a must June 17 2000
By JEZ N W - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is just great. I have never been one to go for the full vampire thing, but this book really is the best vampire story ever!PERIOD. I have now read it twice. Again King's prose is so lucid, once you get involved, becomes something more than a reading experience. There are at least two scenes in this book that will leave you clutching your chest in dread, a similar sensation to those who have seen the exorcist and clutched thier necks at the neck operation scene. Just read it and you will see what I mean. It also offers itself as an accurate social commentary on modern living, as is the case with many king subplots. Basically its a raw, dark and intense novel in parts. If you like books that get thier teeth in to you, then this is for you.

The S.K. Starter Kit... Jan. 21 2012
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Four of King's finest books. THE SHINING is one of the best haunting / ghost / supernatural thrillers ever! SALEM'S LOT brought vampires to life for me. It was my first King book, and I still remember it vividly 30+ years later! NIGHT SHIFT is my personal favorite King short story collection. He has a knack for these little mini-masterpieces. Contains everything from monsters to murder. CARRIE is fantastic! Steve makes telekinesis believable and the characters are realistic. Yep, this is the novel that Steve tossed in the trash, and Tabitha rescued! Very smart lady! Buy immediately...

Great book by Stephen King, lots of good stories that later were made into movies, plus other short stories that are great and keep the reader interested.
