There's so much in this book that would never make it into any adaptation, like the Ironworks, the bird, the leper and so on. I like the Tim Curry TV movie but it isn't a patch on this fantastic read. This novel blew me away.
I'm currently gong through old King books I've never read. Just started Pet Semetarym then it will be The Dark Half, Geralds Game and Insomnia.
After I've read those I'd like to tackle The Stand.
