Lol I shared your exact sentiment after reading Dreamcatcher. But by that time in my life, I was too wrapped up in SK's many wonderful worlds to even think about not reading more. I just finished it and said, "Blah, that was pretty revolting....ok time to move on the next book."This is the book that brought me back to Stephen King. I read "Dreamcatcher", which grossed me out so much that I couldn't read anything else for years.
