Question: Stephen King novels for teenager!?
I want to start reading the novels by Stephen King!.!.!.!.anyone know which one I should start with!?

btw, I really like horror and suspence!.!.!.and I'm 15!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Start with Salem's Lot (vampires) or Carrie (telekinetic powers in a high school girl)!.

The Dark Tower series is a really good epic adventure, there's 7 books that I highly recommend!.

Cujo was good for simple horror, about a rabid dog!.

But I always recommend to someone just starting with Stephen King to start with his first one and read them in order!. You'll get a better sense of how his writing style has changed!. Carrie would be the first one :)

Hope this helps!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I started reading Stephen King when I was around your age, and I found that " 'Salem's Lot" was really good! It's scary, though!.!.!.it's about a writer who returns to his hometown in Maine (Steve King's home, too!) to confront an evil that he believes lives there!. It's a vampire story!.!.!.

"Carrie" is about a teenage girl who reaches puberty only to find that she has powers far beyond most girls'!

"The Shining" is about a recovering alcoholic named Jack who takes a job as care-taker of an old isolated hotel!. He and his young wife and 5-year-old son move in for the winter!.!.!.with horrifying results!

Be aware that Stephen King uses language that may be judged as too mature for teens, but as I said, I was reading his stuff when I was a teen!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Eyes of the Dragon!. It has no bad words, and the plot is really interesting!. It's very suspenseful, and it's not extremely long like some of his other works!. Since many of the characters are young, you might find yourself relating to them!. I think you'll enjoy the book a great deal!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I have read all his works!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

i really like ' the eyes of the dragon' but thats more fantasy!.
pretty much all his books are thrillers
try ' it " thats a classic
this is a list of all his books

King can be very explicit at times!. I think you should start with Insomnia!. It's creepy but clean!. I liked it very much!.

Hope it helps!Www@QuestionHome@Com

Salem's Lot, Carrie, and Eyes of the Dragon are your best bets!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
