Not entirely sure exactly what you mean by that, but I agree that he is a great story teller. He's the only author that in one book I can be absolutely enthralled and I spend my time thinking he's the greatest story-teller ever, but another of his books I can read and just not enjoy at all.

I should add, I'm not a horror fan, and the Dark Tower series (I only ever read the first four) are the only fantasy books I've ever read and enjoyed. I tend to read mostly thrillers, but still find King is the only author that can truly wrap me up and lose me in a tale.
