Two of Stephen King’s favorite underrated books are from the past few years, but the other one? It was first published back in 1885. See what King’s picks are below:

The Double by George Pelecanos, out now.

Germinal by Emile Zola, is a terrific novel of a labor strike, as fresh now as it was a hundred years ago.

Headhunters by Jo Nesbo: (Pictured) Hilarious and creepy, too! Couldn’t put it down.
