Hard to fathom, but possibly parenthood and work mean its been some years since my last King read, which I think was Dreamcatchers...

So my question is - with a chunk of real leisure time on the horizon - which book should I get back into the groove with.

I should stress that pre the lapse I had read (re read in some cases) everything up to the release of Gerald's Game. Don't know what it was but that book sort of set in train a chain.

Exceptions being the following which were read

Insomnia
Green Mile
Desperation
Regulators

plus
From a Buick
Colorado Kid

Also inexplicably I never got round to reading Thinner for some reason.

So - where should begin and why?

Tempted to kick in with Dr Sleep - but all suggestions welcomed.

thanks for that - no surprises ref the top 10 - but the list seems flawed as there are non of the recent releases on it?
