    1. Desperation (best if read before the Regulators)

    2. The Regulators (written as Richard Bachman)

    3. Misery (sooo much better than the movie)

    4. The Green Mile (made me bawl)

    5. It (scared the crap outta me)

    I've read all of his works so far except the Dark Tower Series, and it is hard to pick favorites. He is such a versatile writer; he can do so much more than the horror genre he is famous for.

    The Dark Tower Series

    Bag of Bones

    sorry, those 4 are the only ones I've enjoyed, Bag of Bones was my favorite because it's just a really good ghost story

    I am not going to list the Dark Tower Series but, I loved it!

    1. The Stand.....Excellent story, good vs evil..Good wins!

    2. Insomnia....Love it, love it love it!!

    3.The Dead Zone...Great story again..good wins..

    4.Desperation...Horrible yet fantastic at the same time!

    5.Dreamcatcher..I couldn't sleep for weeks!!

    It is way to hard to list 5..If you asked which one I didn't like, I could answer that easy..Gerald's Game..I just did not like it at all.

    Other than that, I love them!!
