    IT!! As for a second I'm going with Insomnia. Unlike a few others, I loved it.

    Insomnia was quite a special book; it started a bit slow (not necessarily a bad thing, especially with SK), but really ended up meaning something to me.

    I haven't read it since it was new and I really need to get back to it, which, since I insist on rereading SK in order, and since I'm focusing for a while on non-SK things, may not happen until 2019 or 2020.
    The hurt in your eyes, I know you know that I pray
    for the phone call that takes me away...

    Ah good! I'm not the only one who enjoyed it. Hopefully when you get to it in a few years you'll still like it!

    Far from it; there are a few of us out here. There are real streaks of humanity through King's best works, and one runs pretty strong in Insomnia.

    Hopefully, indeed. Some books don't change for you through the years, but others...let's just say that my 2011 Talisman re-read didn't go so well.

    I've always felt that way as well. It just moves like clockwork. I probably enjoy other classics more for various reasons, but that is a "perfect" (or near) novel.

    Maybe I need to reread that book. When I first read The Dead Zone about 20 years ago, I remember it being rather slow and not really pulling me in.

    DZ for me was a standout. It is still one of my all-time favorites.

    The Dead Zone is his best, 'Salem's Lot is my personal favorite.
