Re: Stephen King
I've been reading Stephen King since I was very young.
I liked his first three books 'Carrie', 'Salems Lot' and 'The Shining', but thought he really started to hit his stride just after this with 'The Stand', 'Dead Zone', 'Firestarter', 'Christine' and 'Misery', which I love.
Since then I think he's gone down hill a bit, and I've not had the same sort of enjoyment from 'Tommyknockers' and 'The Dark Half' onwards.
I thought the 'Dark Tower' books started well, but finished poorly (I don't mean the very end, I just think they went down hill a bit).
Strangely, this drop in quality appears subsequently to tie in with his re-hab from drug and alcohol addiction.

There's nothing an agnostic can't do when he's not sure whether he doesn't believe in anything or not.
