    "I recently read the book "'Salem's Lot" by Stephen King, and I really enjoyed it. It talk about the obscure story of Jerusalem's Lot, where a new resident will bring an evil allure that will infect all the inhabitants.. It won't let you sleep at night, but it's well worth!"

    "There aren't many Stephen King books that are *not* set in Maine, but Cujo remains one of my favorites due to how different it is from so many of King's other works. Not so heavy on the supernatural, it reminds you of the potential horror that could be waiting when you see that unknown dog on your street, barking its fool head off at you, but also makes you think a bit more deeply about violence itself."

    "Bag of Bones is a well known novel by the infamous Stephen King. I have not read the book personally but my wife has and she says it is one of his best. It is very suspenseful and leaves the reader continually wanting to read more."

    "Reading this puts very vivid images in my mind of the place I grew up in. The atmosphere in the book is pretty damn good. It's a well written classic, what more is there to say about it? Personally I've read it more than a few times and its one of the best."

    "This is one of my favorite King novels. Really unique. Some beautiful moments in here. I found it to be my go-to example of a book about true friendship. Been years since I read it and I can still recite some passages by memory."

    "This novel is actually a collection of four shorter novellas, two of which ("Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption" and "The Body") are clearly set in the state of Maine. Both of these stories have been adapted into major films, and may be of interest for fans of The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me respectively. In my opinion, the whole series is a solid entry in the King canon, but others (like "'Salem's Lot") make much better use of the Maine setting."

    #9Dolores Claiborne (French Edition)

    Dolores Claiborne (French Edition)

    Dolores Claiborne (French Edition) is suspense novel written by Stephen King and translated by Dominique Dill. It was first published in 1992 by Pocketbooks.

    "This book would be a great recommendation for French readers, specifically. This one depends on what types of languages the question is asking for, for example if this was recommended to an American viewer, chances are they won't know how to read French, whereas if it were recommended to a Canadian viewer they would probably be somewhat more likely to read French."

    "This is my first Stephen King novel and I was constantly shocked at the depth King went to on character-to-character interactions. Hard to imagine this book was written in the 1980's. The word journey best describes this book. If you are buying this novel because of a killer clown, you have no idea what your getting into. This is a wonderful book that everyone should read at least once. This book will creep you out."

    "My uncle bought me this book for my birthday because he knows I'm a fan of Stephen King's work. To be honest, practically all Stephen King novels are set in Maine... Four Past Midnight: The Sun Dog is one of King's lesser known works. I know what you're thinking - you want to know how much it resembles Cujo. Well, not too much. The story itself is fresh and I'd recommend anyone who is vaguely a fan of Stephen King check out this book."
