What do you recommend in particular, Jason? I read Lisey's Story when it came out, which contains some excellent passages. He does a great job at inscribing this particular book with an emotional depth that caught me off guard. Yeah, it does take some turns into King's traditional horrors, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
I've really enjoyed his two post-accident short story collections, Everything's Eventual
and Just After Sunset
. I also LOVED his novella length entry into the Hard Case Crime books, The Colorado Kid
. (I think the SyFy channel show Haven is loosely based on it...) It's an interesting interpretation of hardboiled fiction, and though it basically amounts to three people talking for a hundred odd pages, it was fantastic. Also liked Cell
(especially its concept...people turned into zombies by cell phone usage?) and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
