The Shining was pretty good. Another King book I liked was The Dead Zone. And some more quality books are: Slaughterhouse Five- Kurt Vonnegut, Brave New World- Aldous Huxley, and Fight Club- Chuck Palahnuik. Those are some in my top ten.
I love The Shining! It is scary and creepy. It is one of my favorite King books. I really liked the strange mix of history and delusion that gets mixed into the story and seeing the dad finally loose it. Also Pet sematary is most definately one of the best Stephen King books. It's definately scary in a sense. Much better than the movie. And for unwind I thought it was pretty good. It was definitely a fresh and interesting idea which made it an enjoyable read. You should give them a try :)
