Desperation is a story about several people who, while traveling along the desolated Highway 50 in Nevada, get abducted by Collie Entragian, the deputy of the fictional mining town of Desperation. Entragian uses various pretexts for the abductions, from an arrest for drug possession to “rescuing” a family from a nonexistent gunman.

Pet Sematary is by far one of King's most disturbing novels, forcing readers to think about the unthinkable- the death of a small child. Many readers were appalled with this book and even King himself claimed that this was one story he'd rather soon forget, but I admire his insight into this taboo topic and how he turned what could have been a typical "zombie" tale into a thought provoking piece of horror. Just one more novel that proves King is the master of horror!
While people often list The Stand, The Shining, or It as his best work, if I had to pick one as my favorite, it has to be The Stand. This story is a rollercoaster ride of tension and hope, a beautiful narrative that left me in tears.
