I consider this to be King's best literary work. I also consider it to be one of the best pieces of literature in the 20th C. It has nearly all literary motifs, and heavy in symbolism. A good read, and a good study in lit!
My first Stephen King read when I was 13 or 14. It is still my favorite out of his impressive bibliography. I remember carrying my beat up paperback edition just like this one with me everywhere I went.
Basándose en la novela de Stephen King "El cuerpo" el director Rob Reiner compuso en 1986 una historia de amistad con el eternamente recordado, River Phoenix al frente. Obtuvo una nominación en los Oscar a mejor guión adaptado.
