Sharyn Everyone has their own opinion, I totally understand and agree with that. But most of the books on this list have 4 stars at least. A few have 3. So either you don't like this genre or you just don't like to read. Apart from the fact that the list is titled "Authors who should have quit while they were ahead" you have only named 7 authors and just picked out ONE series of books you didn't like that they wrote. Maybe you should have called it "no to sequels" or something. Steven King is one of the best authors (in lots of peoples opinions) in the world. Anyway, I hope you found/find a genre/author you like.
