He's gotten better. 11/22/63 was definitely the best ending to a King novel I've ever read. It was very different from a normal Stephen King book, though.

There are 3 Stephen Kings:

Cokehead Stephen King
Sober Stephen King
Post Run Over Stephen King

The first and last Stephen King wrote good books the middle one not so much.

/Went to school in Maine the library would never even think of banning his books.

He acknowledges his son for suggesting that ending, so I guess he hasn't actually gotten better.

Fano: FLMountainMan: 11/22/63 is my least favorite Stephen King book ever. The first one I've ever thought about giving up on. Maybe it's just meant for boomers or something.

I didn't touch that book with a bargepole. Being born in 1977, I already had to listen to a lifetime's worth of fellation of the Kennedys and their Camelot. King has already made enough idolatrous statements, like when JFK is called perhaps the Last Gunslinger of Earth at one point, I didn't need a whole book with that as a touchpoint. I'd rather read about women being molested/beaten/getting revenge on their husbands on an island during a solar eclipse.


Well, the bolded would certainly get the Kennedys' approval. The latter not so much.

'Student fights to keep Stephen King book in library. This will end in a hasty, underdeveloped, disappointing fashion that will include bias/bigoted comments about Christianity, conservatives and Richard Nixon and will run about twice as long as it has to.'

There.

FTFY, subby.

"[A]s soon as that book is gone from the library, do not walk -- run to your nearest public library or bookseller, and find out what your elders don't want you to know, because that's what you need to know! Don't let them bullshiat you and don't let them guide your mind, because once it starts, it never stops."

-- Stephen King, Virginia Beach Public Library, September 22, 1986

Didn't that end with all the friends running a train on a 12 year old girl?
