10 Endings Stephen King Actually Got Right

He has received criticism for his endings, but these prove to be the exception to the rule!

It has become almost trendy to mock the endings of Stephen King's novels, as there has been a perception that he tends to fumble the ball in the last act. However, this is very far from the truth for many of his works.

While there are admittedly some dud endings (not that they take away from the story as a whole), the endings on this list comprise ten of the best that he has written, absolutely nailing the close of the story in perfect time - even if that time is over 1000 pages later.

With almost 70 novels under his belt, there is a LOT to choose from and, like any author, not all of his novels or stories stand the test. Yet, these entries do. Almost all of them have a film or series adaptation too, something that King works very much lend themselves to, and while some of those more well known adaptations change elements to better suit the medium, this list refers only to the book endings.

And finally, for the love of God, SPOILERS LIE AHEAD. You have been warned.
