    Have Always Thought Of Trying A Stephen King Book.... But Always Get Putt Off By The Thought Of It Being Too Scary And Creepy. Are His Books Really Horror+++++ ?

    Ive read them all, so far, not really scary in my opinion, more complex and thought provoking than just pure horror. Im a bit of a wimp, cant do scary as i cant sleep (cant even watch scary films)

    I've just found one this weekend that i've missed along they way "Blaze", so i'm reading that in the next week or so.
    Im quiet sad, i get them bought every birthday and xmas.
    I also read james herbert as i find them similar.

    I agree with Elaine. You should read Misery. It is a real edge-of-seater.........much better than the film. Most Stephen Kings are thrillers rather than out-and-out horrors. Another good one, although quite a long book, is The Stand.

    I used to read all his books - but after I read 'It' which was about a clown - it scared me so much I haven't read another!!! Salem's Lot is brilliant as well.

    Ive read all his books but after Black house which he co wrote with Peter Struab (not sur of surname) i felt sick and stopped.
    There is a book in the Richard Bachman (Stephen Kings pen name) collection called Thinner. Its about a gypsy curse. It might give u nightmares about lipotrim......lol
    His earlier stuff is the best horror. U wont beat the shining, carrie, The dead Zone, Cujo (very sad) and pet sematary is very horrific. Misery and Gerald's games are along the same line but his later writings are just as good in film form.
    Maybe it would be an idea to get some of his short stories so if u arnt into one u can just skip 2 the next.
    Skelenton Crew, Four past Midnight.
    U might be better to read some true crime if u want to scare urself stupid. I have just finished Manhunters which is about how and why profiles were introduced. Its heavy reading but well written.
