Now that saves some typing!
To get back on topic...
The only time I really ever got "angry" with SK was when reading 'Salem's Lot upon its original paperback release. I was about a quarter of the way through when my mom get very sick. Being a very impressionable Catholic boy I swore it was because I was reading such "sacrilegious writing" and threw the book away! I was quite upset with SK for writing such a book.

But then my mom got better in a few weeks and I ran out and bought the book again and have not looked back since.
In DT7. I won't spoil anything, but there are people out there who know what I'm talking about. I was so cross I nearly threw the book across the room. What I did was have a good cry and kept on reading. Then I wasn't so angry.
You have to understand however that if
Jake did not jump out in front of that Van, the writer would be dead, not just injured and the story would have ended right there by the side of the road. LOL
Dang, my above post did not have the spoiler alert. Sooooooooo sorry.
"The Mist" made me sort of resented because of
Spoiler: KEEP OUT
its open ending, SK left me completely desolated that time
But how did you like the movie?
I believe Constant Readers are not allowed to cuss out Mr. King. You can praise him all you want, however.
Haven't watched it yet, I mostly prefer books to movies, if both are present Maybe someday I'll check it out, 'cause I'm currently rewatching whole "Breaking Bad" series without a translation and it must take long
I think, if Mr King gets down to the bottom of one's heart, even making one cuss him out, it only means that he did his best. I do believe, he would understand this kind of reaction
Absolutely! I think Steve would be hugely disappointed if he hadn't invoked some kind of outburst from his readers at some point.
It's very likely I might have said a few things while carrying a box of SK hardcovers while my back was hurting...
I was pissed that after all he had been through to help OTHER PEOPLE,
he couldn't leave Ralph Roberts alone...
Thank you, that's exactly what I meant.
When you write, you hope a) others will read what you have written and b) that they will enjoy it. And it is a good thing to receive feedback - if positive, it feeds the ego and, if negative, it can be helpful if it is presented constructively. SK is a pro - he knows he's not going to please 100% of his readership 100% of the time. But I feel sure that, as a pro, he will welcome constructive criticism.
My cussing him out in this thread, however, was not meant to be critical. It was referring to times when what he has written his hurt me so much - because I love the characters, and something unspeakable has happened to one of them - that I have had to put the book to one side and, perhaps, have a little weep. He has done this on a number of occasions, and I'm willing to bet that it's one of the things he aims for.
I liked that ending. Absolutely HATED the movie ending.
This makes me kind of curious about that movie
Save yourself the frustration.
