    My parents think I'm too young to read Stephen King. They have no idea what I write in my spare time.

    I'm reading Oliver Twist at the moment, and Charles Dickens has such a sarcastic sense of humour, it's hilarious!!! and also a really good story.

    Quick thing- it's usually better to edit your post than post twice in a row. The option is in the bottom right corner of each post you make.

    It's okay, my first post I accidentally posted it three times

    We've all been newbie's

    Too young to read stephen king? My dad was a little skeptical, I hate scary movies, and he said the book freaked him out a bit, but he read it his freshman year so he's letting me.

    I got nightmares when I watched "Resident Evil" for pete's sake, and the zombie's can't even run like in "I am Legend"....

    Sorry, off topic! I'm good at being off topic though

    Does anybody like the Inheritance Cycle? (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr)

    Ya I know it's a little young for me....But imo it's alright.

    I really liked Eldest. Eragon, not so much, though I don't know why. I haven't read Brisingr yet. It's a big book so I'm planning on reading it after The Singing so they don't overlap or worse, I have to choose one over the other to read first!

    Stephen King is good, but moreso his older books

    Some of his stuff is just drivel, because he knows people will buy it


    Having said that however, his short story collections are usually excellent, and the newest one, Just after Sunset, was brilliant, as was his last book Duma Key. He can do it when he wants to


    He did amuse me with his comments about Stephanie Meyer (not that im mentioning it of course ), as did all the fangirl responses who are convinced he cannot write (you'd think, after 30 years, someone would have had the heart to tell the poor guy )

    Also, Inheritance has been discussed to death by us, although your welcome to add your opinion since its miles of pages back


    Also, it says something for how active i am when someone who joined a year and a half after me has more posts lol....ill have to be content with my post count on other sites instead

    It doesn't say anything about yours! It just tells me that I have no life.

    Anyone for the Golden Compass? Also probably discussed...

    Stephen King, bad? I think he's quite good. His writing style is unique. He's had way more best sellers than stephenie meyer.... I liked Twilight and all, but it's amateurish (idc if that's a word or not) and too easy to read.... I know this has probably been discussed a ton too. Just saying though.

    Oh really? Sorry..... I don't want to scroll back

    I liked Brisingr the best. Eldest was just looooonnnnng and detailed. Eragon was good.

    There, opinion stated.

    I'm not saing hes bad...far from it. On form, he is one of my favourite authors. What i am saying is that, at times he releases some very bad stuff, knowing full well that people will buy it. If you've ever read Blaze (and if you havent, consider yourself blessed) you will see a good example of what i mean. I was bought it as a present by well meaning relatives who knew i liked his work, and although i never told them i actually threw it away after reading. Characterisation is awful, plot is farfetched at times, and nonexistant at others, and it flits between being fast paced and basically stopped more often that an out of shape marathon runner....


    I think that at times hes just put his name behind work that hes knows is unfinished, because he knows the public will accept it regardless, and when he chooses to do so it shows

    Finally, if you havent yet, read Needful Things, one of my favourite books by him, and a brilliant read, but avoid the film, which, well not a bad film, absolutely butchers the book beyond plausible recognition
