Stephen King lives in the town I grew up in!! Given that, I liked SK as an adolescent, but not as much as one might think. SK was what my mom read so that limited the appeal a bit. Loved Different Seasons, though, and enjoyed Eyes of the Dragon, Gunslinger. Then my tastes changed and I didn't read any of his books for a long time. As an adult, I was a bit underwhelmed by Dead Zone, and Dreamcatcher was dreadful.

So when my mom, a King fanatic, foisted King's latest doorstopper on me and pestered me to read it, it was without any enthusiasm that I opened it up, just to get her off my back. That book was Under the Dome, and needless to say, I loved it! What a pulse pounding climax to that book! Since then I've had a bit of a King renaissance, & have read and enjoyed 11/22/63, Full Dark, No Stars, It, Firestarter, and plan to read more, especially The Stand, The Shining, Salem's Lot, The Green Mile, Duma Key. Someone else said it, this guy is a great storyteller.
