Re: The Stephen King Megathread

I've read many of his books: Carrie, The Shining, Different Seasons, The Green Mile, Firestarter, Christine, The Talisman, It, Misery, The Mist, Hearts in Atlantis.

Will read Dreamcatcher, The Dead Zone, probably Gerald's Game and Insomnia later.

He generally creates good momentum and interesting characters, and especially interesting supernatural evil, but sometimes is a little too unserious (all the Lord of the Rings referencing in The Talisman, which near the end felt video gamish) or repetitive. I also don't really like his dismissive attitude to the fans.
