I admire Stephen King as a writer. He is really talented, but he comes off a little rude. (Remember his Stephenie Meyer comment? Talk about a hit to your ego...being shot down by a legend.) Also it kind of seems like he is running out of ideas.

Just my opinion. ;)

Hey that's why it's called "You're The Expert!" I want to know what you guys think :o)

I tend to agree with the rudeness about Stephanie Meyer... that must have really sucked for her.

I like Stephen King. The comment about Stephanie Meyer was rude. We all make mistakes sometime or other. The guy's lucky to be alive - some rude *%&!@#^$ ran over him a few years ago! My favorite King book is . . . ON WRITING: A MEMOIR OF THE CRAFT. Favorite character? Himself! He's scary!

Stephen King is scary. Just think about it. All that stuff he writes is in his head! At least he acts out by writing books :P. Some of his stories are captivating and others leave much to be desired. I guess I am a fan of his older books, like the Shining, the Stand, Firestarter, etc. I quit reading him when I felt the stories were too dark for me.
