20 Top Stephen King Best-Selling Books (2024)

1. Dreamcatcher: A Novel


most-popular-stephen-king-books

Once upon a time, in the haunted city of Derry, four boys stood together and did a brave thing. It was something that changed them in ways they could never begin to understand. Dreamcatcher Twenty-five years after saving a Down's syndrome kid from bullies, Beav, Henry, Pete, and Jonesy - now men with separate lives and separate problems - reunite in the woods of Maine for their annual hunting trip. 

But when a stranger stumbles into their camp, disoriented and mumbling something about lights in the sky, chaos erupts. Soon, the four friends are plunged into a horrifying struggle with a creature from another world where their only chance of survival is locked in their shared past - and in the Dreamcatcher. 

Never before has Stephen King contended so frankly with the heart of darkness. "Dreamcatcher, "his first full-length novel since "Bag of Bones, "is a powerful story of astonishing range that will satisfy fans both new and old.

To find the fast pace of ordinary thriller novels in this thick novel, I am afraid I will be disappointed. Under the fine description and slow rhythm, it shows the delicate style of contemporary excellent American novels. 

The intricate psychological depiction of characters The interweaving of the past and present of inner activities, and the continuous flashback of childhood memories, make this novel go beyond the plot of flatness and completeness and obtain profound and moving power. The whole structure is also swaying and full of surprises and dreams.

2. The Stand


most-popular-stephen-king-books

Finally finished reading the original work of The Stand, and let out a long sigh! It's really a work of God, it looks like Lord Jin's favorite "Lord of the Flies". Both the character portrayal from a young age, and the viewpoints and reflections on history, politics, and religion from a larger perspective are epic-level excitement. 

History is the scars of mankind's repeated past sins. Larry Underwood is not one of my favorite Golden Lord characters, I really love him too much, crying, words can't describe.

Stephen King is really good at writing. In the beginning, there are really many characters, and multiple lines are interspersed. Later, the plot gradually emerges, and multiple main characters come together because of the same dream. 

To be honest, this book is not as horrible as imagined, but some scenes are described as a bit bloody and violent, and they are particularly graphic.

The full version is really long. Read it for three months. The first half of the first and second volumes are better written and have practical significance. The third part is a bit unfinished, but the master's skill is still there, so even if the end is a bit sloppy, it is still okay. 

The text should not express too many "fighting" scenes but rather render a kind of fear. Awe and reflection on some things are very important. However, this book has been written for more than 20 years, but people on Earth seem to have learned nothing from it. A book that is very forward-looking and predictable, showing the roots of human inferiority.

3. The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three


most-popular-stephen-king-books

Beginning with a short story appearing in "The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction" in 1978, the publication of Stephen King's epic work of fantasy-what he considers to be a single long novel and his magnum opus-has spanned a quarter of a century. 

Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, "The Dark Tower" series is King's most visionary feat of storytelling, a magical mix of science fiction, fantasy, and horror that may well be his crowning achievement. 

In November 2003, the fifth installment, "Wolves of the Calla," will be published under the imprint of Donald M. Grant, with distribution and major promotion provided by Scribner. "Song of Susannah," Book VI, and "The Dark Tower," Book VII, will follow under the same arrangement in 2004. 

With these last three volumes finally on the horizon, readers-countless King readers who have yet to delve into "The Dark Tower" and a multitude of new and old fantasy fans can now look forward to reading the series straight through to its stunning conclusion. 

Viking's elegant reissue of the first four books ensures that for the first time "The Dark Tower" will be widely available in hardcover editions for this eager readership.

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba The second volume in Stephen King's #1 bestselling Dark Tower Series, "The Drawing of the Three" is an epic in the making ("Kirkus Reviews") about a savage struggle against underworld evil and otherworldly enemies. 

Stephen King is a master at creating living, breathing, believable characters, and hails "The Baltimore Sun." Beginning just less than seven hours after The Gunslinger ends, in the second installment to the thrilling Dark Tower Series, Roland encounters three mysterious doorways on a deserted beach along the Western Sea. 

Each one enters into a different person s life in New York here, he joins forces with the defiant young Eddie Dean, and with the beautiful, brilliant, and brave Odetta Holmes, to save the Dark Tower. 

This quest is one of King's best it communicates on a genuine, human level but is rich in symbolism and allegory ("Columbus Sunday Dispatch"). It is a science fiction odyssey that is unlike any tale that Stephen King has ever written."

4. Desperation: A Novel 


most-popular-stephen-king-books

"The terror is relentless" (Publishers Weekly) in Stephen King's number-one national bestseller about a little mining town, Desperation, that many will enter on their way to somewhere else. But getting out is not easy as it would seem...

Located off a desolate stretch of Interstate 50, Desperation, Nevada has few connections with the rest of the world. It is a place, though, where the seams between worlds are thin. It is a place where several travelers are abducted by Collie Entragian, the maniacal police officer of Desperation. 

Entragian uses various ploys for the abductions, from an arrest for drug possession to "rescuing" a family from a nonexistent gunman. There's something very wrong here, all right, and Entragian is only the surface of it.

Welcome to Desperation. Once a thriving copper mining town in the middle of the Nevada desert, Desperation is now eerily abandoned. It's the last place that travelers like the Carver family, bound for vacation, and writer Johnny Martinville, astride his Harley, would expect to be stopped and charged. 

But Desperation still has a local cop a unique regulator who patrols the wilderness highway. The secrets buried in Desperation are as terrifying as the forces summoned to encounter them. A terrifying transformation is taking soon place and the travelers will discover the true meaning of desperation ...

5. Christine


most-popular-stephen-king-books

Stephen King is known as the master of horror, but what I personally admire most is not his horror, but his unique worldview. This is evident in Christine.

Rather than saying that Christine's plot is horrible, it is better to say that Christine's view of love itself has a more gloomy feeling. As the comment downstairs said, a deformed view of love.

Stephen's strongest is his description of human psychology. Regardless of strength, depth, and breadth, he is quite outstanding. He can always write unconventional things: all kinds of human nature that are full of contradictions, bizarre twists, and turns but do exist in reality. 

The contradiction dilemma of... In fact, any outstanding, master-level things will not fall into the clichés. Of course, people without talents can only follow the book and follow the old customs. In my opinion, insight into human psychology can only come from a profound worldview.

Although Kristen's love is gloomy, it also has a charm, that is, this kind of love is fierce, deep, and unmatched by ordinary love. Such a dark love exists where no one knows, the feeling of deep secrets can sometimes give people infinite confidence and strength, just like Christine gave the protagonist.

6. The Long Walk


most-popular-stephen-king-books

It is said that "The Long Walk" was written at Stephen King University and published under the name of Richard Bachman after it became famous.

The story is set in a fictitious future. The United States holds a huge hiking competition every year (perhaps inspired by the outdoor travel of the Boy Scouts). A total of 100 boys under the age of 18 are selected from each state through a lottery and participate. 

The one who persists until the end is the only winner, and everyone else will die. The winner can be rewarded to realize any of his wishes. This sounds a bit like a survivor game like "The Hunger Games" in the future, but in fact, Stephen King didn't give it much sociality. 

It is not as full of strong opposition and conflict as "The Hunger Games", some rules restrict the game: slow down, fall, give up, interfere with the opponent will be warned, and after accumulating three warnings again offenders will be shot on the spot. It is more like a competition of endurance, most of the time players are fighting their own limits.

7. The Green Mile: The Complete Serial Novel


most-popular-stephen-king-books

When the novel "The Green Mile" was about to end, I felt so sad when I read this sentence. This story is about love and death. This is not a new topic, but it is a good story. When you show love to others, they may misunderstand you and even kill you. This novel is talking about this.

This story was adapted into a movie many years ago. I watched this movie a few years ago. This is also Stephen King's most tender and moving novel.

A series of stories about a death row prisoner with superpowers and several prison guards who executed the death sentence during the countdown to the execution. 

The death row helps the prison guards with superpowers and moves them. And they began to think about the behavior of death row prisoners, why such a kind person was put here...

Stephen King's story rarely has a happy ending, and this is the same. Except for the protagonist recalling this story, the people who appeared in this story for many years have died one after another. Some of them died spontaneously, some were accidents, but they all went to death. 

It was as if they had taken the condemned prisoners through the Green Mile leading to the electric chair. Everyone dies. They may die early or late, but they will always die. Whether you are a good person or a wicked person, sooner or later, you will die. And in people's short life, whether you are a good person or a bad person, have you really helped others?

8. Pet Sematary


most-popular-stephen-king-books

Pet Sematary by Stephen King likes to depict trivial life scenes with delicate brushwork and never lets go of the trivial things of Sesame Mung Bean, and at the same time, he never forgets to emphasize the details that need to be paid attention to at the right time with the right strength of benefits, so that he is about to sleep. A warning to the readers. The psychological description is the highlight, and there are all kinds of sentence segmentation methods that I like.
 
As for Stephen King’s works, I don’t actually see much. My favorite is "Salen Town". Later, "The Shining" and "Obath" didn’t have that kind of horror effect, and "Pet Cemetery" was the first Four books, the first half of the story is very plain, even a bit dull, after the middle of the turn, it quickly enters the climax-the robbery! Unexpectedly, there will be a more exciting and exciting plot after the tomb robbery. 

Although the ending is expected, it is infinitely embarrassing. God has given them enough hints. From dreams to intuitions, they all point to the same development trend. So many people try their best to go. 

To save the whole thing, try every possible means to run to the same destination from different directions, but the end is actually no escape, no way to hide, and there is no worst, only worse, fatalism is everywhere, and the author wants to remind the reader that it seems that people Once you are attached to what you have already lost, you will also lose what you currently have. Life and death are in the sky, and going against the sky will be punished.

There is a sentence repeated many times in the book: "Men’s hearts are harder." I don’t know if there is a problem with the translation. After reading this story, I only feel that all male characters are relatively weak, while female characters are admirable, especially in Desperate at a critical juncture, the kind of boldness that relies on instinct and desperately rushes towards the target.

9. The Shining


most-popular-stephen-king-books

Originally, Stephen King’s novels were all used as hypnotic readings by me. There are a lot of delicate and easy life descriptions of characters in his books, which are very unsociable.

    At least I thought so when I first started.

    Because I have the habit of reading my favorite novels over and over again, for example, "The Silent Lamb" has been read more than twenty times, and I am basically familiar enough to memorize it, so I can't accept the adaptation of the movie.

   "The Shining" is similar, but every time I watch it again, it feels more terrifying. Obviously, it is a familiar plot, but because I am more and more familiar with every detail of the novel, every time I read it, the feeling of the novel becomes more vivid and clearer. The bone-chilling cold and horror are very different. It's hard to describe in words.

    Compared to Joey hiding "The Shining" in the refrigerator, I understand it very well, because I now wrap the cover of this novel, then press it under a thick pile of military novels and comedy novels, and then lock it in the cabinet.

    I don’t feel scared anymore, hehe~ I’ve seen too many horror novels, horror movies, etc. Except for the kind of work that challenges my stomach with blood, if there is any story that can scare me from the beginning "The Shining" is the one that is so cold that he is too scared to sleep. It's only this work that frightens me so persistently.

    I am sure that any reader who does not think "The Shining" is scary, has not read it carefully and has not experienced the feeling of immersion in it.

10. It: A Novel


most-popular-stephen-king-books

It: A Novel. The story takes place in the small town of Delhi in Maine. One rainy day, William made a paper boat for his brother George. His brother happily went out to release the boat on the street but soon died at the sewer entrance. In the following, children continued to disappear or died in the town, but the police search was fruitless. 

William's parents were immersed in the grief of bereavement and turned a blind eye to William. During the summer vacation, the sad and lonely William and six children who were unwelcome at school formed a "waste club." The little friends found that they had almost seen a weird guy-"it". 

"It" changes a lot, sometimes it's a clown holding a balloon, sometimes it's a giant bird, sometimes it's the whispers and gurgling blood in the drain... The only thing that doesn't change is that every time it appears in Delhi, it will win Take the lives of dozens of children.

11. The Institute

It's been a long time since I've read such a hearty novel. Although the development in the first 50 pages is a bit slow, it's not a frivolous plot. I can't help but sigh that novices pursue a suspenseful beginning, but masters can bury the plot with a mediocre beginning.

When the story progressed to Luke entering the Institute for Supernatural Powers, the tension of the plot made it impossible for me to put down this novel.

Let me first introduce the superpowers set in the novel - telekinesis and telepathy.

To put it simply, telekinesis is moving objects through the air. I don’t need to explain telekinesis, which is equivalent to mind reading. Both of these are skills that look awesome but are actually useless. However, this institute does not hesitate to shoot the families of children with special abilities and kidnap children with special abilities to the institute.

So here comes the first question: What is their purpose?

After children enter the institute, they are constantly subjected to experiments, from needle sticks to water immersion tanks. After the experiments, the doctors will ask if they have seen colored light spots. After a few weeks, some children will be moved into the second half.

What are colored light spots? What's the second half?

There are endless suspense stories like this.

But the most intriguing part is the part where Luke decides to run away. Although he didn't know the purpose of the second half, he felt the danger - the superpower research institute was draining their superpowers, and they would die when they were useless. For himself and to save the people here, he decided to flee. But the Superpower Research Institute is indestructible and there are cameras everywhere. How can he escape?

After escaping, the personnel of the Superpower Research Institute chased and intercepted him again, leading to a life-and-death battle. Because what they did in the institute was enough to be sentenced to death. If they want to live, Luke must die; if Luke wants to live, they cannot live.

The institute gives the children a high-sounding reason: they are serving the country.

In fact, it is very funny that Luke has an extremely high IQ, which is a rare thing in a thousand years. The staff of the institute did not pay attention to it, and instead focused on abilities that had no practical use. They use children but look down on them. This is the fundamental reason for their final failure - no matter who they are, they should not look down on others, because others may have abilities that you cannot predict.

Their belief is also jaw-dropping. The staff really thought they could save the world, and for this unreasonable purpose, they killed countless people. And never ask those who are forced to give their lives if they want to.

This is no longer about saving the world, but about destroying it, right?

12. 'Salem's Lot

Before I bought this book, I had already read Carrie, so after reading only ten pages, I discovered the striking similarities between the two books.

The background of "Carrie" is mainly on campus. Although it is interspersed with interviews with neighbors and local news reports, the storyline is relatively simple.

Salem's Lot is much more complicated, with a group of adults competing against each other, the legend of an evil house, and beautiful love falling victim to evil. After reading this, I felt chills in my back.

This book needs to be read calmly and it is best to buy a physical book. If you read an e-book, you will probably get angry and curse.

13. Carrie

It is "Carrie" which has been adapted into movies many times. Stephen King's works are really suitable for film and television adaptations because when he was writing, he probably had the entire movie playing out in his mind. 

Even which lens to use and what background music to use are all matched. This can be seen in his writing. This is how he behaves in this novel. This book can only be placed in the category of popular novels. 

If you know the outline of the story in advance, the whole novel will not be very interesting to read. From the perspective of writing techniques, as mentioned above, the author has a very rich sense of imagery. 

Some techniques similar to movie flashbacks and insertions are adopted, which can arouse emotional resonance. 

For example, in a complete sentence, intersperse the thoughts in your head without punctuation. 

Although it is very effective, it is not comfortable to read. There are also a lot of excerpts from newspapers and memoirs - all of which are fictitious in the article. 

I personally think it is a bit of a trick. In addition, there are some angles that the author wants to explore, such as Sue (the woman who asked her boyfriend to invite Kelly), and Billy (the little bastard who poured blood). 

Seems a bit redundant. But it’s a debut novel, after all, so it’s pretty good. After watching the author’s interview, I thought about reading all of Stephen King’s works, but after reading this one, I no longer seem to have much interest.

14. IT

The second longest novel by Stephen King I have read, although it was published in 1986, it still seems fascinating now. 

It's just that this book is really too thick, which really tests the reader's patience. The setting of seven protagonists makes readers a little confused at the beginning.

Each protagonist will unfold his story of youth and adulthood respectively. Personally, I still prefer their childhood. If it were reduced to less than four main characters and the thickness of the book was reduced by a third, I could give it five stars.
 
My favorite among the seven protagonists is Bill, who has become a best-selling writer of thriller novels. 

Although he has stuttered since he was a child, it does not prevent him from becoming the leader of the Seven. 

My favorite plot is not the creepy ghosts (I’ve seen too many of them and I’m immune), but the scene where Ben happily goes to his favorite library to borrow books on the first day of vacation in the hot summer, and time passes. 

Looking back, I recall the days when I borrowed books from the district library during my three-year high school vacation. Such wonderful memories directly resonate with my spirit.

15. Doctor Sleep

What "Doctor Sleep" does is somewhat like the will that continues the miracle of Green Mile. 

It’s part of the healing aspect, plus the cat imagery adds a bonus. 

On the other side is the expansion of the worldview, the expansion of The Shining's abilities, and the battle between good and evil. 

The True Knot clan is like the completion of the plot of Salem Town. (The description of the RV homeless is so funny. I can imagine King scrutinizing the RV community and coming up with bad ideas during every long trip. Hahaha) The most anticipated thing must be the intertext with "The Shining": 

The haunting tenants lock the boxes in their heads one by one, take over the mantle of the black chef "The Shining Spirit", and the decisive battle takes place at the ruins of the Panorama Hotel... 

In fact, this sequel is not enough to review the previous work. But, this is King's original intention, the story of a little boy who cannot get rid of the shadow of childhood but always tries to fight against it. 

For example, Danny loves his father more emotionally than he hates him and accepts the existence of violent factors in his genes. 

There is also a scene where Danny is also alcoholic and then comes out of it to face life. 

There is stimulation, healing, and more of a kind of spiritual reconciliation. This continuation is very golden.

16. The Gunslinger

The Gunslinger is the first book in The Dark Tower series. Roland is a gunman. He has lived for nearly a thousand years. 

He is looking for the man in black, hoping to find the dark tower through the man in black. 

The end of the world, in a unique place. In a small town where people lived, a female priest instigated all the town residents to attack him. 

He cleaned the whole town. Then on the road, he met a boy named Jake. Jake lived in New York, then he had a car accident and died. 

Then His soul was brought to this place by the man in black, but he didn't know that he was dead. Roland and Jake went on the road to find the man in black. 

They passed through a long desert and then passed an empty station. The conductor in the station The bodies had become mummies, but their clothes were still intact. 

They walked along the railway in the dark for many days and were attacked by zombies. They became friends on the way. 

Roland also told Jake about his attempts to pass the gunman's test. A brutal duel between him and his teacher Cort, a man who often abused his apprentices. 

With the help of his pet vulture David, he defeated his teacher, obtained the qualification of a gunner, and finally found the black man. 

According to the oracle, Roland sacrificed Jake. Jake fell into the mine because no one rescued him in time. 

According to the guidance of the man in black, Roland continued to search for the Dark Tower alone.

The climax of the novel is the violent fight scene. Roland and Jake obviously lived in different times and spaces, but they obviously knew something about the same world at the same time. 

Some of the plots of the story are puzzling, but a complete evaluation of the novel is required Only after reading the entire Dark Tower series.

17. Under the Dome

I have to mention two key terms that appear in the book: The Simpsons and Spielberg.

The former showed a dome similar to that in Under the Dome in the 2007 theatrical version (although the dome in the book is not spherical), but this is not It’s not that King plagiarized it. 

In fact, King had already formed the concept of the dome more than 20 years ago. The latter has confirmed that Under the Dome will be made into a TV series. 

Although the novel is set in 2013, science fiction is not the main component. However, I believe that some big scenes can still allow Spielberg to show off his talents.

The highlight of the novel lies in the description of the characters. There are many characters in the book, but Stephen King's portrayal of each main character is very delicate, especially the number one villain Big Jim Rennie. , just watching him talk is very interesting. 

Under the Dome has the huge cast of The Stand, the fast pace of Cell, and the small-town political hustle and bustle of Needful Things. 

Although the editor has made a lot of deletions The cuts made the final length of the novel far less than the previously expected 1,800 pages, but the length of 1,074 pages ranks third among all King's works.

18. Mr. Mercedes (Bill Hodges Trilogy)

When Stephen King wrote his first novel and became a big success, he discussed with his agent at the time whether he should continue this thriller and suspense route, or whether he should write some type of works that are more popular with contemporary people. 

In fact, there is no specific answer. Perhaps a talented writer should not be limited by genre, or in other words, he himself has the wisdom to perfectly express various types of works.

        I can condense this "Mr. Mercedes" into three words: a "very exciting" novel. 

It can be as small as the key to a Mercedes-Benz, which can make suspense come one after another, or as big as an open-air concert, where countless fans are cheering but there are infinite crises hidden under it. 

This is an out-and-out confrontation between a hard-core detective and an anti-social villain. 

The male protagonist Bill Hawkins is both wise and courageous. 

Together with Holly, a seemingly depressed and arrogant girl, she finally turns into an invincible detective assistant.

        I began to look forward to it, and I shouted in my heart that this was not enough. 

I hope to continue to see Hawkins, I hope to meet Holly again, and I also hope to see these two fighting side by side, punishing evil and promoting good. 

And Stephen King did live up to everyone's expectations and launched two sequels, forming the perfect "Bill Hawkins Trilogy".

        I don’t want to comment on remakes of American TV series, nor will I watch them: because I can’t bear to let go of the endless reveries in my heart about each character. 

I don’t want to be limited to the TV pictures and the appearance of the actors. I hope I can always carry these reveries with me. 

After reading each of his works, I use my heart to construct the thoughts, wisdom, and images of each character in my heart. 

19. Misery

I initially chose this book because I saw Stephen King’s series in the library and picked it up when I saw this one ranked high on the list... Who knew I would be fascinated after reading it? I have to stop reading, let’s get to the point.
      
Over the years of reading, I have always longed for the characters I like to get an ending of their own, whether it is a happy life or a satisfying death... But this is the only one that I have always wished for. 

I hope that the protagonist can die soon, get rid of the big devil Anne, and avoid being tortured and imprisoned by Anne.
        To be honest, I sympathize with Paul and feel sorry for him. He was supposed to be a bright and popular writer, but because of a car accident, he became a nightmare with missing limbs. 

In order to escape from people who kept thinking of ways to keep writing, he persisted, he worked hard. 

As a reader, I couldn't bear the suffering he suffered, but I felt as if I had witnessed his tears with my own eyes and heard his desperate roar with my own ears... 

In the book, after Anne cuts off his fingers and soles, Paul is in despair and lethargic for a time. 

He always thought that the motivation that supported him to continue writing and trying to escape was The Resurrection of the Bitter Children, including me. 

As a result...his persistence turned out to be revenge on Anne. It has to be said that Paul is also a dark and negative energy figure. 

Even though Paul's tenacious perseverance is revealed in the book, Stephen King did not deliberately emphasize it. 

Instead, he elaborated a chilling story in the book with terrible psychological derivation. Questions like "Are you okay?" and "Can't you be okay?" were also frequently asked. 

Paul kept asking himself, constantly spurring himself to kill Anne with his own hands and take revenge on Anne, a crazy woman, but he didn't have the time when Paul escaped. 

After that, in fact, Anne never died. Her soul was always in Paul's mind, and nightmares appeared frequently. 

Paul could never forget his experience. With gratitude and fear, he continued to write with tears. This was his final value, the value of oneself, and the explanation of what happened to him finally came to light.

20. The Dead Zone

I have loved hero comics and movies since I was a child and imagined that one day I could become a hero and be admired by thousands of people. 

But these so-called heroes are all stars exposed in the spotlight. Their punishment of evil and promotion of good, good and bad fortune every day, affect everyone's heart, and their kindness will eventually be understood and praised.

However, Johnny is a tragic unsung hero. What he did will probably never be understood or forgiven. His evaluation in the history books of magazines and newspapers is likely to be no better than that of the Canadian killer Magnotta. But he is truly a hero.
     
The author revived Johnny four years later. Although he gained superpowers, he lost his lover, friends, normal life, healthy body, and the subsequent loss of his second life, which seemed cruel. 

But rather than letting Johnny have it all temporarily, he has to make the following choices: 

1. Hold on to everything he has now, but have to be condemned by his conscience every day; 

2. Give up everything now and face the doubts of his relatives, in the crusade of ordinary people, to save the future of people who don’t know the truth, and let themselves be infamy for thousands of years, but in the end, they have nothing but relief.
     
The author gave up the latter and chose the former, using Johnny's normal life that he could not return to after waking up and the love he had lost forever, and letting him use his near-dead and incomplete body to bear the burden of saving the future. Making him a lone unsung hero.
     
After reading the whole book, the dream of a hero has been shaken. 

Even though he can endure physical hardships and pay without any reward, he does not get any spiritual support, and is questioned, ridiculed, and even scolded, but he must persist in the moral persistence in his heart. The principle remains to be fearless. 

The only thing that can drive you to do this is a clear conscience that will not condemn you in the future. It seems that my realm is still limited to the spotlight hero. . .
