    Everything's Eventual. I looovved that one.

    Elodin: "Tombs is for feckless twits who can't chew their own food. My boy's a Re'lar! He has the feck of twenty men!"

    Kvothe: “Books are a poor substitute for female companionship, but they are easier to find.”

    Simmon: ”It’s just ointment in case you get burned...but if you mix it with piss, it turns into candy.” Sim’s expression was deadpan. “Delicious candy.”

    Shawshank - although not voting for The Langoliers ain't easy, I loved that one too.

    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    I went with The Body, but on a different day I might have went with either Shawshank or Langoliers.

    I would also vote for SWSG before I voted for any of the others listed.

    Oh man, that sucks. I still would have voted for The Body, but Secret Window, Secret Garden is still one of my favorite stories.

    I voted for The Langoliers, despite the fact that I love Everything's Eventual, and would kill for more short stories tied in to The Dark Tower.

    One of my friends-a recovering sci-fi devotee-was discussing the miniseries TV adaptation of this novella, and told me that it seemed like the stupidest idea to base a fictional story on. I replied that you shouldn't judge the merit of a Stephen King work by the excruciatingly bad film adaptations directed by Mick Garris.

    He did like the miniseries based upon The Stand though.

    I chose The Body. It was a great novella and it was made into one of the greatest movies of all time (Stand by Me) The Body is unforgettable!

    After Shawshenk was released people forgot that for a long time "Stand by Me" and the original version of "The Shining" were the only even remotely decent Stephen King works translated to the big screen.

    It is a great story. Not what I voted for, but a story I love muchly.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    And together we'll cross the river.
