I will never stop saying this: everyone should read Stephen King.
I can practically hear people replying, “But I don’t like horror.” Never fear! Stephen King is a writer of stunning range and endless imagination. His books range from historical fiction to fantasy to thriller to coming-of-age tales to memoir and beyond. His expertly crafted characters, no matter what scenario or genre they are in, will stick with you long after you turn the last page.
In honor of the master storyteller’s birthday, here are my recommendations of a Stephen King book for every reader.
