I don't read anything new by Stephen King, really. I attempted Lisey's Story and Under the Dome and I found them both alarmingly bad. I read Duma Key and it was so-so.
Stephen King in the 70s and 80s, I can do. I like It, The Stand, The Shining, Carrie, Skeleton Crew, 'Salem's Lot, etc. But know what you're getting into. It's not going to be classy literature.
