10 Most Underrated Stephen King Books Of All Time

Stephen King is one of modern literature's greatest novelists. Able to conjure up terrifying imagery with every one of his books and draw wonderfully compelling characters and stories in the process, he has been scaring readers for fifty years and shows no sign of ever losing his magic touch.

Not all of his books are horror related, mind. Though horror is usually what people associate the author with, King has been known to take a break from outright scaring his Constant Readers with novels and stories in completely different genres, such as the coming-of-age novella The Body (later adapted as the film Stand By Me) and the fantasy/sci-fi epic series The Dark Tower.

His imagination knows no bounds, and his influence on modern pop culture is nearly unrivalled. Over the last few years, it seems he's been around more than ever, with much of his work making its way to people's screens, including IT, Doctor Sleep, 1922, and Gerald's Game. In the past, films such as The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Shining and Pet Sematary have captured the public's imagination in a vice grip and increased King's popularity worldwide.

All told, Stephen King is a genius of horror and everything in between, with a deep understanding of what makes people tick and how awful and wonderful we can be. The following list will take a step back from his more well known works and take a deep dive into the books that you may have missed.
