    1. HOLY CRAP THIS BOOK IS BEAUTIFUL I put this book on my paperbackswap wish list years ago It was pretty pricey at the time and it s been sitting there Until a couple of weeks ago and my number was up I have been itching to get this book in my greedy little hands.It was worth the wait.It s full of tidbits from King From ideas of where his stories originated The house that was in his mind with Salem s lot I took this pic with my phone so excuse if it s crappy Then it has these little envelopes scat [...]

    2. Knowing my love for King, you might be surprised to learn that I just found out about the existence of this book today Despite the fact that I am a devoted King fan, and a member of the Stephen King Fan group here on GR, in which there was a thread about this book open since last October, I somehow managed to miss it But that was kind of fortuitous, as events worked out in such a way as for me to get this book 1 2 price But even if I hadn t, it would still have been worth every penny This is an [...]

    3. It s like stuff you could collect out of Stephen King s garbage and recycling if the restraining order didn t keep you at least 300 yards away It s a cliche, sure, but if you re a dorky stalker fan such as myself I mean, I ve actually hung out in front of his Bangor home hoping for a glimpse of even a shadow on the curtain , you shouldn t be without this fascinating peek into sections of his life you ve probably never seen Fun, fun, fun the paper artist in me just ate up the envelopes full of re [...]

    4. The text in this book didn t hold a lot of surprises, especially if you re a stalker fan like me, but the pictures alone are worth the price of the book Throw in the eight glassine envelopes that hold copies of manuscripts, sketches, letters, news articles and pages in King s handwriting and you have a virtual gold mine of memorabilia.I have three other books about King, Feast of Fear Conversations With Stephen King, The Complete Stephen King Encyclopedia The Definitive Guide to the Works of Ame [...]

    5. For Stephen King fans and non fans alike, a deeper look into the author and his life.With a couple of exceptions, each chapter focuses on one of King s bestselling novels The Shining The Stand The Dead Zone Pet Sematary It Misery The Green Mile Bag of Bones The Dark Tower series Lisey s StoryAlso included are stories about other events that were going on at the times when these books were written and released Insights are revealed concerning inspirations for the stories.Several chapters include [...]

    6. My only complaintd it s a minor one, because Bev Vincent definitely did his homework here, is that I would have enjoyed an even deeper dive into the books Why did King choose the characters he did Why did he take the story in that particular direction That sort of thing But that s the writer in me asking for that stuff All in all, an enjoyable read and an informative look into the mind of Stephen King.

    7. Wonderful Tons of photos of the master of horror every few pages a bonus surprise, like a facsimle of his highschool newspaper that he wrote for I discovered many new bits of trivia and the story behind the story on many of his most known works SK always has been and always be my favorite

    8. Le aspettative erano altissime, avendo sentito tanti pareri, tutti entusiasti, di questo volume Eppure ne sono rimasta affascinata.Quando l ho sfogliato per la prima volta, mi sono ritrovata in mano lettere che sembrano autentiche e mi letteralmente venuta la pelle d oca.Un libro che racconta nei minimi dettagli il passato di King e cosa stava vivendo nel momento in cui ha scritto i suoi romanzi pi celebri.Risponde ai mille dubbi e alle altrettante curiosit che avevo in testa da anni Come ho pot [...]

    9. Questo bel libro si rivolge sia agli appassionati di Stephen King sia pi in generale agli scrittori in erba.I primi potranno trovare un volume pieno di aneddoti e curiosit che riguardano il loro scrittore preferito i secondi invece, troveranno spunti ed incentivazioni psicologiche per proseguire con spinta rinnovata verso il sogno della vita.Il libro strutturato in 14 capitoli, ciascuno dei quali presenta una parte descrittiva, un insieme di fotografie spesso inedite, diverse immagini di documen [...]

    10. A must read for the King s fans.I ve always gotten a chuckle out of readers I hope they re readers and not just the General Public who ask Stephen King such an inane question as where do you get your ideas He has, over the years, freely shared from whence his ideas pour I grimace when people assume writers who produce strange works must be strange not always so I used to follow Stephen King, reading about him, and his writing, in addition to his works, until I pondered whether I was becoming the [...]

    11. Bought it from the clearance bin I wonder who this book is actually for It includes rather lengthy summaries with spoilers of King s well known works Wouldn t the ardent fan already know these stories And if somebody doesn t, wouldn t they rather not know the endings I appreciated the large pictures of covers and movie adaptations, but seeing King s face every fifth page gets a little ooky after a while The writing style just seems like a poised college paper complete with footnotes I also felt [...]

    12. I thoroughly enjoyed this glimpse into the mind and workings of one of the most gifted authors of our time This book takes a look at the thought process and inspirations behind some of King s most popular novels After reading so many of these stories, it was fascinating to see the intricacies that went into the development of them It was very interesting to me to realize how many stories were at one time started, only to be abandoned, and then revisited years later The glimpses at so much of the [...]

    13. Any Stephen King fan would love perusing this sort of coffee table book featuring analysis of many of his books, biographical information, quotes from King, photos, and various other odds and ends The section on the Shining was probably my favorite, he talks about realizing that writing about Jack Torrance was really writing about himself The real draw here is the removable facsimiles of various documents from his history, including typewritten pages with handwritten corrections, his first publi [...]

    14. This book was all sorts of marvelous Not only is it full of interesting things about this brilliant author, but it also has little goodies for you to get your hands on Copies of manuscripts of first drafts, handwritten editing, handwritten stories, you name it It s almost as if you went digging through things you shouldn t have There was plenty of things within this that I already knew, mainly from reading Stephen King s On Writing , but it was still very informative The only thing I would watch [...]

    15. Il mio amico Steve KingUna biografia inusuale, costruita attraverso dodici capolavori di King che rappresentano i dodici capitoli dell opera Ogni romanzo viene collegato direttamente alla vita privata dell autore e alle curiosit che ne hanno determinato la stesura.Tutto su Stephen King anche una raccolta di memorabilia, di foto e di materiale inedito di vario tipo, raccolto in cartellette trasparenti macchiate di sangue , per renderlo ancora pi misterioso e prezioso.Uniche pecche la traduzione i [...]

    16. As an avid King fan and Constant Reader, there honestly was not a lot of information new to me in this book Many of the same anecdotes and major parts of King s life I d previously read Further, at times the summaries of King s work are gratuitous and intricately detailed, which sort of negates the reason to read his books in the first place That said, I found the most interesting parts of this book to be the photographs and documents such as early drafts of books and correspondence If you re a [...]

    17. Excellent read I love getting the behind the scenes stories on some of King s popular works, and the reprints of handwritten drafts and other miscellanea is a HUGE bonus for a life long King fan such as myself Now I want to go back and re read all of my favorites all over again Needful Things, It, Salem s Lot, The Stand, The Tommyknockers, Desperation, Under the Dome If there s any complaint it s an unfair one I wish the book was longer and went into the process behind the creation of even of h [...]

    18. I don t believe that King participated in the compilation of this volume there are numerous quotes, but all are marked with footnotes attributing them elsewhere, but it does compile an amazing amount of fascinating trivia, curiosities, and photographs There are many cool little glassine pockets affixed every so often that contain reproductions of manuscripts in various stages of production, some early fanzine appearences, some early fan club newsletter pages, correspondence, etc All in all, a re [...]

    19. libriecaffelatte 2011 CONCLUSIONI A parte la libidine che ho provato nell avere tra le mani le veline con riprodotti gli scritti originali del Re, stato molto interessante conoscere i retroscena per ogni libro Ne valsa la pena Un libro di straordinaria qualit Avendo letto anche On writing ho notato che alcune notizie si ripetono ma sono poche e, a mio avviso, si completanoOMOSSO

    20. Molto interessante, indispensabile per chi si considera fan del Re e poi diciamocelo, fa proprio una bella figura nella libreria.Interessanti gli allegati, soprattutto quelli riguardanti il periodo scolastico e la sua carriera nel giornalino della scuola.Per il momento ho dovuto saltare il capitolo 9, dato che non ho ancora letto Mucchio d ossa troppi spoiler altrimenti.L unica pecca che, essendo stato pubblicato qualche anno fa, non comprende anche i lavori pi recenti.

    21. This is really a coffee table book, but it s still enchanting A must have for hard core Stephen King fans It features reproductions of pieces of copy edited manuscripts in folders that can be pulled out of each chapter Rarely seen photos and insight on some of his most important novels up through Under the Dome.

    22. This is an essential read for fans of Stephen King It was so good I learned a lot about his life, the themes in his writing All the cool little features that you find in the transparent envelopes throughout the book are just awesome I got this book on bargain at Barnes and Noble, totally worth it

    23. The quotes in this book are mostly a rehash of On Writing, Stephen King s excellent memoir What makes this book special is that it ties in the biographical details into the catalog of his works The book has a lot of inserts of rough drafts complete with corrections While they re interesting, it s annoying and gimmicky to take them out of the envelopes.

    24. This is a GREAT book to have on the shelf even if your not a King Fan I have enjoyed learning about his history and path to get where he is in his writing carreer This book includes copies of manuscripts and other pieces of his history I found this on the discount shelf at Barnes Noble and am very happy I picked it up.

    25. I love poring through this book s such a treasure trove of information on my favorite author and getting to see copies of early, unedited manuscripts and other tidbits from his career is thrilling My favorite the telegram announcing that Carrie had been picked up I had goosebumps.

    26. An extremely interesting book that gives insights to Stephen King s life and books It includes many pictures as well as copies of notes, parts of manuscripts, drawings and much A great book for an Stephen King fan.

    27. Da avere La parte biografica non aggiunge molto di nuovo a ci che lo stesso King ci ha raccontato negli anni Ma le foto, i disegni e gli allegati rendono il libro imperdibile La filologa che in me lo adora D

    28. Very fun and informative Lot s of pictures and descriptions of the inspiration for several books I really enjoyed it.
