It is always FAQ books that help the most when one is trying to discover something new. In the case of Stephen King Films FAQ, by American film critic Scott Von Doviak, the reader can be introduced to a new world. And not only of King’s movies, but also of his books.
In fact, what makes this one great for the reader is the huge amount of information, combined with personal experiences and opinions that come from someone who has been reading Stephen King since he was little and watching his movies, in a way that turns this book into a personal diary, as memoirs, as the confessions of someone for whom the name Stephen King has a special meaning. That way of writing is what makes this book a perfect read for both connoisseurs, who can rely on the personal story, and new readers, because it allows them to discovery a new world of literature and cinema.
Von Doviak wanted to make a book that told the story of his favourite writer at the same time he was telling a part of his life. And it works from beginning to end.
