  1. Cool list – a lot on here I want to get to, too! As a Stephen King fan, I’d love to weigh in on the first two –
    I found The Gunslinger to be a bit of a slog, especially for the first installment of such a beloved series such as the Dark Tower. If you feel the same way, fight through it; the next few are downright amazing.
    11/22/63 is so damn big you could probably seriously hurt someone with it, but I FLEW through it. I absolutely loved that book, and was so sad when it ended. The JFK assassination plot is of course compelling as hell, but the 1960’s scene King paints and the characters he introduces was the better part of the story, in my opinion.
    Good luck with your list!
