    I very much enjoyed Danse Macabre. Of course, I'm funny like that.

    my favorite one is The eyes of the Dragon. I've read it several times, it's really a bit different than a lot of his stuff.

    I messed up my vote. Should have been for The Green Mile, it is the only Stephen King book I ever read that I liked. Very Gnostic type premise in it. I was suprised that he wrote it.

    I like the short story of The Mist. I liked the movie until the ending. They should have kept the ending that was in the book.

    I really love the story.
    And I liked the way it ended with a little hope but still very ambiguously.

    Why, did Darabont make the ending happier? (I wouldn't be surprised.)

    No, actually, he made an ambiguous ending into a depressing ending.

    ***SPOILERS BELOW***

    In the book, they get the radio call from Albany. In the movie, Thomas Jane's character uses a gun to kill off the other people in the car but he survives because he's out of bullets to kill himself.

    ***SPOILER END***

    I preferred the book's ambiguous ending.

    Oh yeah, Lisey's Story is pretty good too.

    I haven't read Cell yet. Or Duma Key, which came out this week.

    I started it but will have to get back to it.

    Cell (the sample chapter) looked like it sucked. I just heard about Duma Key just this past week too.

    Cell looked like a filler book.

    One of those books I lump in with The Dreamcatcher, just kind of by the numbers horror that King doesn't invest a lot in. It's like he does it to clear his throat (or cache if you want a computer metaphor) so he can write something better.
