Stephen King Novels Summarized in Twitter-length Descriptions
My dad is a huge Stephen King fan and as I was growing up there almost always was a King novel on the end table near his recliner. I tried a few times to read a couple titles, but found I liked the movies based on his books a little better. I've seen "Christine," "Misery," and even "Firestarter" more times than I can count.
Author Max Booth III took on the (relatively) tough challenge of summarizing the plot of every Stephen King book in 140 characters or less. And that's a lot of books to cover over what's been a lengthy career.
One thing that sticks out is how prolific the guy has been. I mean, four books in 1987 alone? There are a couple of other years in which he's released three novels. What, is he just mad-libbing these things at some point?
Anyway, here are a few of my favorites from the piece:
The tale of a brave girl with telekinesis taking the ice water challenge during prom.
Dogs are [jerks].
The Running Man (1982)
Television producers are [jerks].
Small town kids join together to battle evil and then celebrate by having a sewer orgy.
