Stephen King is one of America’s most beloved authors, and his fan base has bridged the gap between horror aficionados and mainstream readers like nobody has before.
But what about those who are new to King’s dark world? It could take them years to read every book King has ever written, and who has time to read full length books?
Author and columnist Max Booth III took a note from Twitter and summarized each book in the Stephen King library using 140 characters or less, so people with short attention spans can catch up on their reading in about five minutes.
Now you can tell your King fan friends that the plot to Carrie is actually "The tale of a brave girl with telekinesis taking the Ice Water Challenge during prom", and that The Shining is simply a story where "A writer fights his family". It's so easy!
