    Who is your favorite character from a Stephen King novel? Why that character over any of the others?

    I've read more than half of Stephen Kings's works and met hundreds of engaging characters along the way,  so picking an all time favorite would be near impossible for me. I can, however, pick a favorite from the last King novel I read, The Stand. Stu Redman is supposed to be the likable everyman and protagonist, but Nick Andros was by far my favorite character. He overcome a great deal of adversity in his life and was a balanced, fair and thoughtfull guy with a great attitude. Also, he didn't let his handicap stop him from having a sense of accountability. How could you not love him?

    What a difficult question for any King fan.  I agree with Rick - The Stand is probably one of my favorite stories, but I don't have one particular character I like more than another.  I actually liked Andy from Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, but loved the crazy hat that Annie wears in Misery.  She is a huge wackerdoodle!

    Thanks for the answers. While  I  enjoyed The Stand, Tom Cullen being my favorite "Moon", I'll have  to go with  Wolf from The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub. His loyalty and desire to "protect the herd" stuck with me for some reason. I tend to immerse myself when reading and I'm not afraid to admit being a bit teary eyed when he died.
