It almost feels like he's run out of ideas and is just writing what worked in the past.
I may be in a small minority with this opinion but I didn't much care for The Catcher in the Rye. The stream of consciousness style was well executed but I just didn't care much for the actual story.
I agree here. I adored the Dark Tower, and Cell, and everything before. But lately? Garbage. WOuld love a movie version of Cell.
To me, it wasn't "The Stand... BUT WITH CELL PHONES". It was just a rehash of any zombie movie.
Worst book I've ever read? Hard to pick just one. I managed to trudge my way through the first chapter and a half of Twilight before I quit. New record of how quickly I quit. Therefore, Twilight.
