    3.5 stars This book is part-biography of Stephen King and partly looks at the places where King grew up, lived, spent time... and where he modelled some of the settings for his books. It includes photos of many of the places. I liked it. It was published in 1999, so there is probably a lot more current stuff that could be added if it was updated. The book also looked at some of the movies that were made from King’s books. I particularly enjoyed the section on “The Shining” (Stephen and Tabitha li 3.5 stars This book is part-biography of Stephen King and partly looks at the places where King grew up, lived, spent time... and where he modelled some of the settings for his books.

The book also looked at some of the movies that were made from King’s books. I particularly enjoyed the section on “The Shining” (Stephen and Tabitha lived in Colorado for a short time). I also love that they are both so supportive of libraries, to the tune of gifting a couple of local libraries a lot of money to help them out.

    As a die-hard "Constant Reader" of SK I was intrigued by this book. However, upon finishing I found it to be more than a little disappointing. Published in 1999 just before the explosion of the information age, there really isn't anything that you can't find on the Wikipedia article on King. For someone with no internet access and no prior knowledge of King's life or works, this might be a much more useful book than for those already well-versed in King's output.

    A fun and interesting read for fans of Steven King! Semi-Biographical with maps and pictures, the book truly shines in giving reasons for settings characters and plot in ol Steve's books. Quite a bit I already knew, and an amazing amount I didn't. Even with a cursory read through, This tome smacks of a lot of loving, well put together research. Definitely a great pick for people who wanted to know just a bit more about the circumstances behind King's books. A fun and interesting read for fans of Steven King!

    The pictures of the places that sparked the stories of Stephen King were fantastic, but the biographical information was spotty and at times incorrected. Plus the fact that I am stalkerish-ly obsessed with SK there was not one new shred of information I hadn't read somewhere else. I think I may just know it all.
