I have heard of the book before, never read it though. I almost got a Stephen King book taken away from me on a Church Trip. Shocked Laughing

Because your friends are crazy and think it's a devil's book?

Also, Outsiders is a great, great book.

You would get a kick out of some of the banned books.
Harry Potter 1-7
The Stand
Cujo
Carrie
Christine
A Wrinkle in Time-Think I read that
Huckelberry Finn

Those are just some

Huck Finn was not banned at my school, racial slurs are not as taboo in the South as they should be, so I read that one. It was good, but I liked Tom Sawyer better.

I also read Cujo, Christine, and Carrie, all of which I liked. Carrie was the first King book I ever read.

It was when I was still Roman Catholic. It was this trip to a pittsburgh Church for something (I think a preconformation thing), But I digress. I was reading it on the Bus Down, and one of the sisters said something like "You should not be reading that, it is not church approved". My response "Whatever." I read it the rest of the way down. It was The Dark Tower btw (The First book).

I was so tempted to take Harry Potter, because I did not want to go on that trip anyway. It took me away from doing a mock trial thing in school, The food was horrible (Cold mac and Cheese with Chicken tenders on the side, and Cherry Koolaid-I hate Cherry anything), and I hated most of the people who were on that trip anyway. I only went cause I was looking at being held back in Sunday school if I did not go. (Needless to say I stopped going to that church the day after that trip). Would it be acceptable if I said that Nun had it out for me? Not Smacking your knuckles with a steel edged ruler, but still had it out for me?

I'm currently reading Philip Roth as I have to read a fuckload of Jewish fiction for class. If I had to name an overall favorite I'd probably say The Catcher In The Rye (terribly original I know).

Read Rumble Fish and I liked the overall feel of it but it wasn't outstanding.

Like I said earlier...the fact I was forced to read it, and forced to write a paper about every 5 chapters kind of made me hate it. Oh, and the fact everyone called me Holden for about 4 weeks.

To go along with Jimmy's Stephen King suggestion, I recommend 11/22/63. It's one of the best books I have ever read. I can't stop thinking about it! Shocked

is it scary? i haven't read any Stephen King before, not sure how/why, but i haven't. i used to LOVE reading scary books when i was a kid- i love the Fear Street series by R.L. Stine. i'm looking for something good and scary like that, but for big girls! cause i'm a big girl now.

It's more of a thriller. Definitely not scary on the level of his horror books, but a bit tense in places.

11/22/63 is not blood and guts scary, But it is a book that will eat at your mind. thinking about how one thing you do can change the future...,. Stephen King is not scary as in obviously scary....But his books leave you thinking about it, and with such description, you can see the stuff happening....that scares me.
