Ok I have read a few Of Steven Kings books and I can't say that he is one of my favorite Authors . Infact the Green mile books would be the only one I enjoyed or even understood. Cujo was just wierd. Rose Madder started off well but he must of had a deadline to meet. Desperation God don't even start me on that drivel " It " Huh I felt like I was demented and missed half of the book . Refer to Cujo. Sorry Test bear I haven't read it and probably wont ever.
I like Stephen Kings books particularly Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption, The Body a.k.a. Stand By Me, The Green Mile and The Stand. I gotta admit for me his best works are his short stories like Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption and The Body.

My all time top ten (in no particular order) would be:
Different seasons It Cujo The Stand Pet Sematary Misery Firestarter The Dark Half The Shining The Dead Zone
Actually all his books are great, I agree with you CASTOR when you said he 'captures your attention like no other author can'. He has way of writing that does captivate the reader making them feel for the characters, seeing the story through their eyes.
