10: Stephen King is a horror/suspense genre writer. He has made famous works such as The Shining, Carrie, Misery, and IT. Some of his works have been recognized has movies.
11: My Recommendation:I recommend this book if you not just like horror and suspense, but if you like apocalyptic genres as well. It explains something nobody could see and puts you on the edge of your seat when the cell phone crazies enter. It has a ton of language and perverted moments. There are even scenes that describe the adult life such as what a keg of beer tastes like. Other than that nonsense, I say it is good for filling your head with thoughts of horror. I connect it to the 28 Days Later movie.
