When I was in Grade 5 (guess I was ten), my friend Tarnya Smyth brought her mum's battered copy of Stephen King's 'Carrie' to school. We broke it into about 4 pieces and passed them around, all taking turns reading each battered section. I told mum about it and she FLIPPED HER WIG and told me to 'Stop reading that book immediately!!' So, of course, I finished it.
Now, I TOTALLY do not recommend ten year olds reading Stephen King books (messed me up pretty darn good), but this was when my life long relationship with Mr King began. My love for his books is based around his characters. They are so full. I love Stephen King dialogue. I love his sense of humour. And I love the links and connections between the books. I am the kind of annoying person who likes to know the 'In Joke'. So, of course, I MADE A FLOW CHART!!!
This is version 4.0 of this chart and the second version of the printed product. I can't believe, four years since I posted the first little chart I am still getting emails, tweets, and shares about this crazy thing! Love it!
