What is everyone's favourite novel by Stephen King? Mine is The Stand.

It's a tie between Pet Sematary and The Stand. It's been ages since I've read The Stand but it absolutely blew me away and Pet Sematary terrified me.

Probably a tie between Dreamcatcher and the Dark Tower series (especially the first book).

IT is his most engaging novel in my opinion, even with that weird ending.

The Stand is his best work.

Pet Sematary is the most horrifying.

Salem's Lot is his most underrated it's one of his few that has great buildup with a equally satsifying ending.

So many great choices though.

Weird choice, but the one I remember the most vividly is The Drawing of the Three. Mainly because of those fucking lobsters.
