I think you pretty much answered your own thread-based question there, firefly.

It takes what 100 pages to get into the hotel? It takes some getting into but I enjoyed it. The Dark Half by Stephen King was extremely fast paced as Desperation was too. I enjoyed them both. Desperation was better though. Twisted Evil

The Shining is a great read, it was written when Stephen King was focused on a novel, unlike most his later novels.

I stick to The Dark Tower series.
