No, but its the next one to read since I got given it by my brother a week ago but I'm currently reading "The Sigma Protocol" by Robert Ludlum.

Most people haven't but most people will recognise the author by these 3 books, he wrote: The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy & The Bourne Ultimatium.

what?!?! if you mean the stanley kubrick there are many differences between the book and movie. but i cant say without spoiling it
One time I had a Jack and coke and it had a lime in it, And I saw that the lime was floating. That's good news man. Next time I'm on a boat and it capsizes, I'll reach for a lime... I'll be water skiing without a life preserver and people'll say 'What the hell?' and I'll pull out a lime...and a lemon too. I'm saved by the buoyancy of citrus.

I likes the book, it gives more detail, and like any books it allows your imagination to picture Jack as a terrifying character, much worst then whats in the movie. Don't get me wrong the movie was excellent and no one could play it better then Jack Nicholson. he was great

I have read it, but I wouldn't say it's Stephen King's best or worst novel.
Actually on the same subject, Stephen King's latest "Cell" is a good read,
I won't give it away but just think of George A. Romero's writing style, it's like that.

Stephen Kings is very good, when he's very good and reverse.
I didn't enjoy it, I prefer the movie.
