Is Stephen King too scary (read all, then answer)?

I am 13 years old and I want to read Stephen King. To be more specific i want to read the book "The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger", the first part of the series of the Dark Tower . My dad thinks I'll be fine, but my mum thinks I'll get very scared (neither of them has read the books).
What do you think about this book and generally about all Stephen King books? Are they too scary for a 13 year old boy? Which is the most scary of the seven Dark Tower books and which Stephen King book do you suggest me to start with (something not too scary)?

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker: It's difficult to say. I read King when I was your age but it's different from person to person.

I think "The Dark Tower" books are ok. They are not horror stories as such even though they contain some pretty scary scenes.

I would say that the first three "The Dark Tower" books are ok, and by then you might be so caught up in the story that you won't be scared only excited.

If you want to read something that isn't too scary I recommend "The Shawshank Redemption", "The Body", and "The Green Mile".
