I think Dreamcatcher is his most implausible, though as always, entertaining novel.

Stephen King is my favorite horror author. Although I think the drama and suspense has worked its way into his books (I remember the the exact book it hit me) it was Misery. That novel has taken him from the greatest horror story teller of our time to an amazing writer. The books got better and better mixing horror with drama and suspense. Then Insomnia came out and when I put it down, when I was done - I thought I had read a book that I could put in the same sentence as Steinbeck, that's saying a lot as I think John is the king (pun not intended) of the written word. Then Duma Key came out put everything I have read in the last 20 years to shame. The suspense was painful and the build up had a great pay off at the end. So many books with a build as delicious as that usually wind u0p with an anti-climatic ending. Duma Key is on my top 10 books ever written, and I read voraciously always in the middle of 2 or 3 books (I just started 11/22/63 can't wait). I am not a freak just a man that is forty two and read my first King novel (Cujo) in 1981 - and been a loyal fan. I don't care where your ideas come from or the other bull that you get asked time and time again, Stephen King is a brilliant story teller and an amazing writer up with the great in any genre. BTW I loved the Dark Tower Series, I even forgive the 6 year delay in knowing the answer to book 3 lol. Keep em coming and I will keep reading!

Big fan of SK, since I was a young little pup. Getting back into the Dark Tower series now, read the first three long ago, just finished re-reading them, and about to get into the next 4.

I am a big fan not so much of the genres but of his creativity and vision of what speaks to the reader's imagination. I look forward to more bends in the road; I paticularly like when he explores new approaches and confounds the critics.
