Rule of King: Enjoyment is inversely proportional to page count.

Amen brother, this quiz is rad.
Jun 29th, 2010 at 15:03 GMT
Nice quiz! You might want to force it to go in order, though. And @rockgolf, what? The Stand? It? The Dark Tower? Those are all pretty long! I'll give you Bag of Bones and Insomnia, though.
Jul 3rd, 2010 at 14:08 GMT
I agree with Jefrunner - The Stand and The Dark Tower were his best books...
Jul 6th, 2010 at 04:40 GMT
Personally, I have always liked his short stories more than his novels and my favorite novel by him is The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon (I think it's just over 200 pages) but he doesn't write many bad books, Geralds Game is the only one that comes to mind and I loved The Cell, The Stand and of course The Dark Tower series.

rockgolf as mentioned is wrong, as many of King's most beloved books are extremely long. Actually to me he's best with those books that are so long (usually because he has so much to tell and was so passionate about the story) or so short (the short stories and novellas). It's the middle distance books that trip him up, and you wonder if his heart was in it.

I kept thinking that the one with the car was "Christine".
Jun 26th, 2011 at 00:37 GMT
This is easily my favorite quiz so far.

He peaked with Misery and Eyes of the Dragon in '87. Everything was downhill after that, with the exception of some of his short stories...
Feb 19th, 2012 at 05:57 GMT
"From A Buick 8" or "Christine" means I saw a devil car.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 08:51 GMT
Devil cars tend to be classic automobiles.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 09:19 GMT
Some of these books are pretty long and heavy going... but some are Thinner!
Feb 19th, 2012 at 09:28 GMT
If you squint a bit at the blanked out titles, you can read some of them.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 09:30 GMT
Quite hard for us non-Americans (specifically Brits), as these aren't the covers over here.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 10:11 GMT
Skeleton Crew is not a novel, it's a collection of short stories.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 12:44 GMT
I must have typed "Christine" at least a dozen times. Clearly I haven't kept up with Mr. King over the past decade or so.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 13:15 GMT
I thinks it's a travesty not to have even one of the Dark Tower series here.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 13:40 GMT
I really loved the last book. I think it's one of his best.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 14:31 GMT
Where's Dark Tower????
Feb 19th, 2012 at 15:35 GMT
This is such a good quiz. The only problem with it was that it made me think of the Dark Half movie, which despite being directed by George Romero was still one of the worst theatrical adaptations.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 15:51 GMT
Agree Skeleton Crew shouldn't be here. I got it at the last second because of the illustration, but hadn't been considering the short story collections.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 17:08 GMT
I was really hoping The Stand would be on here.
Feb 19th, 2012 at 20:14 GMT
Hodgetiger, that joke is terrible. Take it Bachman... :)
Feb 19th, 2012 at 20:54 GMT
@Tess - I'm in the UK and have a lot of these covers. Think there must just be different versions/reprints etc :)
Feb 19th, 2012 at 22:03 GMT
@packsoldier: If you haven't read 11/22/63, you are missing a spectacular book. I rank it as the #3 SK book, behind The Stand and IT.
Feb 20th, 2012 at 01:08 GMT
Hotshot617. Speak for yourself. I've taken a Shining to hodgetiger.
Feb 20th, 2012 at 01:32 GMT
@Big_E, this shattered my image of SK, in a good way. While I never solely considered him a horror writer, 11/22/63 (which I am still reading, btw) is a book that a lot of authors wish they could write.
Feb 20th, 2012 at 03:45 GMT
Agreed with Big_E about 11/22/63. Certainly right up there with his best work. Extremely and thoroughly researched, with a very intelligent plot.
Feb 20th, 2012 at 04:19 GMT
I got less than half, but I recognized all the covers. My wife loves his novels, and all of these are on our bookshelf.
Feb 20th, 2012 at 10:58 GMT
I agree about Skeleton Crew. The quiz specifies novels and Skeleton Crew is short stories, not a novel. But a good quiz all in all.
Feb 20th, 2012 at 15:05 GMT
Are all of these the first release covers? I have several of these books, but with much different covers, hence why I only scored whatever instead of almost all.
Feb 20th, 2012 at 20:39 GMT
Novel or not, Skeleton Crew contains some of his best work. King generally handles the endings of short stories better than novels. Several of those stories still give me the creeps.
Feb 25th, 2012 at 09:31 GMT
The Carrie cover looks more like the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Jan 11th, 2013 at 22:54 GMT
What took me so long was the covers. I have most of these but many have different covers. Would love to see a sequel!

I have also read and thoroughly enjoyed "11/22/63", but I must say that of all of his 'more recent' books, I was completely overwhelmed by "Lisey's Story". I received that as a Christmas gift the year it was released and started reading it that day. When I turned the last page and finished reading it, I flipped the book and began reading it again. I'm not sure if Mr. King intended to touch me the way I was so touched by that book, but I was completely blown away by it. When I finished it the second time the neighbor borrowed it, and she confessed that whatever I saw in it she didn't get. I felt sorry for her. I've read that book five times since that Christmas and each time I am touched by "Lisey's Story". That story has angered me, enchanted me, hurt me, made me feel like singing and dancing, touched me, roughed me up, made me feel better, made me feel worse, and has always left me feeling different. Parts of that story are going with me to the grave and I sincerely hope that was what he envisioned when he put pen to paper. Sadly, as my neighbor told me, you either got it or you didn't. Luckily I did. Thank you Mr. King.
