    Anyone else? Ive never bee a huge fan of Kings work but this book might have changed my mind. Trying to find a decently priced box set of Ice and fire by martin ATM but I thought King did a cool twist on the whole Zombie thing.

    Ending was a disappointment, but the first 2/3rds of it were great. Typical of Stephen King books from what I've heard.

    This.

    I just read Cell this past week. I really enjoyed it from beginning to end. The end was rather unsatisfying, but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story at all.

    SK is an amazing author. read his older stuff before you delve into anything newer. The Stand is his best single work and the Dark Tower books are his best multi. Not like i have to tell anyone this shit but hey...

    I thought it was "ok". I'm a huge fan, but this book wasn't his best.. I felt like the ending just sort of came because he got tired of writing this book. Sorta unsatisfying to me.
