So many to chose from. Carrie was my first cause I was bullied in school and I can relate. IT was next but I was hooked by then. IT's about a thousand pages. If thats how you want to begin then great. If you want to begin smaller...I agree some of his short stories are amazing and you get to meet alot of his characters that we all know and love. Needful things, Different Seasons, Everythings Eventual etc.
