If we're also we also talking about "Inspector _______" or "Detective _______" types of series, then yes. The uniqueness of the main character wears off, the plots often become repetitious. After a while, it feels like the author is just churning them out to pay the bills.

it does feel that way sometimes i agree, i love the Alex Cross books but not all of the ones that i've read this far i would say are fantastic books some of them are medicore but on how i look at books not every book an author writes, or movie put out by a director i happen to like, or an album are going to be good.

i love Stephen King and consider him my favorite author but even i have books that i've read of his that i think are just plain terrible. Carrie being one of them for example,

now i loved The Bone Collector by Jeffery Deaver and consider one of the best books ever written, that said i've only read 2 of them thus far and the 2nd one Coffin Dancer is a good book but compared to the first book it's a miss

I haven't read the books or watched the series yet. Just finished Locke and Key and I'm trying to decide now if I should watch Altered Carbon or Hell On Wheels.

The Man in the High Castle was on my list to read, but it was the series first season that finally made me read it. P.K. Dick had so many concepts that were before the times that the film adaptation, years later and usually updated, work really well. I would recommend you watch some of the series first then read the book.
I'm so used to Dick's movie adaptations only being tangentially related to the source, I'd assumed Man In The High Castle was the same.

Have you watched Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams on Amazon?
