I have tried for nearly three decades to get into Stephen King and I just can't.

I've been reading him on and off for years now and he's very inconsistent. There's some great highs and some shocking lows and more often than not he can't stick the landing.

Interesting, maybe I just picked the wrong ones. What are your top 5 Stephen King books?

I've read Eyes of the Dragon (awful) and Dolores Claiborne (quite good). Also read some short stories... can't remember.. something about Dreamscapes.

That being said I've tried so many.. Stark - The Dark Half, The Stand, Cujo, etc. but never managed to finish any.

Isn't The Tommyknockers regarded as being one of his worst?

Wasn't keen on The Dark Half at all and haven't read any of the others you mentioned @Suedey, Dolores Claiborne & The Stand are on my list but after the dreadful series last year I'm in no hurry to read the latter.

Wasn't The Stand adapted into a mini-series in the '90s? I think it had a good reception..

I’ve fallen into a reading slump 😞

This is usually the time of year I start delving into autobiographies. Tempted by Julian Clary’s ‘Lick of love’.

Weren’t we supposed to read that together?
My copy has been waiting for me to be read for a year now, but I’m now busy (re)reading a gigantic 1000+ paged book about the European history. I’ve owned it since 2006 and read most of it but this time I’m reading it from start to finish.

I'm reading a book about the White Ship Disaster (History forum dead upskirt) and I just discovered the guy who wrote it is PRINCESS DIANA'S BROTHER?! These posh people do be getting everywhere.
