Of course the scores seem to be proportional to the popularity of the film or miniseries adaptations. I didn't know that the "Maximum Overdrive" story was entitled "Trucks", but I appreciate the former being accepted!

Agreed on that. I remember watching the Emilio Estevez movie when I was a kid, so that was my guess as well.

I also tried Maximum Overdrive and it was thankfully accepted. But I knew The Body was the original title of Stand By Me.

I got 12/19, even though the only King book I've ever read is "Carrie." I have seen a lot of the movie adaptations, though!

Thought for sure we would have seen The Mist or Dreamcatcher here. Otherwise not too bad at 14/19, surprised I remembered Trucks but missed The Shinning

I got 15 just by naming the books I read, then another 2 by movies from the clue. I never heard of Under the Dome...

There's currently an American TV show based on that book. It just had its 2nd season finale this week. I don't know how true to the book it is (since I've never read the book) but the show is twisty and strange and fun to watch. :)

I guess its inevitable with anyone this extremely prolific, but some of his stuff is terrible. Other stuff is great. A talented writer, but often seems in desperate need of a team of very critical editors.

A lot of it hasn't aged well. And when he tries to write black characters.... yikes.

Read "Pet Sematary" as a teenager and couldn't look at my cat for weeks. Read "It" in my early 20's and now have a visceral fear of clowns. Stephen King owes me for therapy.

I always thought "The Langoliers" was one of his best. Hard to grasp Balki as one of the bad guys.

Langoliers has definitely impressed me when I first saw it, makes you question reality

It's sort of a fun coincidence that this quiz happens to be featured on the same day when I decided to visit the bookstore and buy another Stephen King book. I picked Mr. Mercedes.
