    I'm very excited to see The Long Walk in there. I was really worried that it wasn't going to make it, so I'm very happy it's still in the running.

    And I guess I'm the only one surprised to see DoTT as number 1. I know it's not over yet, but I really expected it to be The Stand and It as 1 & 2.

    Wolves just missed out on the tenth spot by mere 0.000569098, which is astonishingly small But, on the other hand, great job by The Shining to move all the way from 15th to take the last spot. Black House didn't really have much of a chance, being in 17th place, and only gaining 0.47% in the 2nd Round. Not to mention Desperation, which sat at a whopping number 28. Duma Key was the other displaced book, making way for The Green Mile. Being 10th going into the 2nd Round, Duma Key really had no room for error, and had to gain points, not lose them. It did just that by losing 0.77% and so it fell out. And Misery, despite gaining a hefty 1.09% remained in its 12th seat.

    I really like Hearts in Atlantis.

    And The Running Man is hugely underrated or at least underappreciated. (or underread) It's what TV is turning into. Seriously.

    I'm surprised The Long Walk made it. I, personally, love the story, but think I would have rather seen Misery (or Insomnia ::whimperspleasedon'thurtme:: ) in there.

    I would have as well, but then again, this is a DT forum so I wasn't too surprised to see everyone's favorite DT book atop the list.

    With the amount of votes this thing took in, it's a pretty clear indication of how the community feels for sure.

    I'm not surprised about DT2. It's the epitome of King's writing, I believe. It was written at his peak of creativity (if you'll recall Round 1, Bracket 5 was the one containing DT2 and four other books from the mid to late 1980s - every book in that bracket made it into Round 2, a winner, a runner-up, and three wildcards).

    If I am not mistaken, he has also stated that it is the favorite book of all of his children. I am surprised, but not because it doesnt deserve to be there. I am surprised that it was able to overcome the bandwagon of The Stand.
