Students of English often wonder what are good novels or stories to read in that language or in translation.
For those who don't mind being frightened, I would recommend Stephen King.
An extremely proflific writer, King has so far written 58 novels and 200 short stories, many of which have been made into movies or TV dramas.
King has also written several novels under the pen name "Richard Bachman" and a few works of nonfiction, including one on the craft of writing: ("On Writing")
Although known mostly as a horror writer, Stephen King has also written science fiction, fantasy, mystery and suspense novel as well.
His story "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption" was made into the movie "The Shawshank Reshank Redemption", which many people often name as a favorite film.
The film "The Green Mile" was also adated from one of King's stories. (G.K)
