Nailed it.Welcome to the Board, but with absolutely no disrespect intended: Mr King owes no one - not even us, his constant readers - a forewarning on anything he chooses to write. We love him precisely because he takes us by the hand to the dark, scary places we dare not go by ourselves. Furthermore, we trust him to take us safely through to the light at the end.
Personally, I grew tired of the "always has a happy ending" 80's and 90's sitcom-style writings. Some of SK's stuff may be disturbing, but life doesn't always have a cheerful ending wrapped up in a nice, neat little package. (For instance, I thought Full House was a cute show but it was too happy-slappy-ending-every-episode for me. I loved Rosanne for that very reason, sometimes life and circumstances just freaking suck!)
