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!
The Kite Runner is the story of Amir, a Sunni Muslim, who struggles to find his place in the world because of the aftereffects and fallout from a series of traumatic childhood events. An adult Amir opens the novel in the present-day United States with a vague reference to one of these events, and then the novel flashes back to Amir's childhood in Afghanistan.
The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King. My favorite book by Stephen; lots of nostalgia from winter evening reads with my dear mother.
