First thing you need to know is that I am a huge Stephen King fan. This guy has created some of the most incredible and original stories. In my opinion he is a master storyteller. I have read most of his books and have seen all of the movies that were adapted from his books. Believe it or not there are still some stories that King has written that have yet to be made into a film. I wanted to address a few of these books because I find it perplexing that these have not been made into movies.
The Dark Tower
The book flows the last gunslinger in the world as he chases down his arch-rival, the Man in Black, with the goal of finding the Dark Tower.
Insomnia is such a twisted and interesting tale about an old man whose wife died, and he can’t sleep.
This is the kind of King story that slowly builds the suspense but the payoff at the end is so worth it.
The Eyes of the Dragon
It takes place in the Kingdom of Deain the king is murdered and his son Peter who would become the King is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, and he is locked in a tower.
The story follows a 12 year old boy who sets out on a mission to walk from the seacoast of New Hampshire to the California coast so that he might find the talisman that will save his dying moms life.
