Far be it from me to disabuse people of the notion that King isn't worth the effort. His politics make it so that regardless of if his literary efforts were worth the effort to read or not - he doesn't need any more money. 

His movies have consistently been terrible - his television shows even worse. They're bad adaptations in most cases - and a lot of his plots don't lend themselves well to cinema. Cujo is a 400+ page novel that spends most of its time with a mother and son dehydrating slowly locked in a hot car with a rabid dog outside. Not a lot of excitement in that. 

His writing style is not everyone's cup of tea. He does a lot of exposition - and some of it is incredibly detailed and has no actual bearing on the plot. Two pages describing in detail the brand, pulp, color, taste, and fragrance of a cup of OJ the character has poured for his breakfast. That isn't *much* of an exaggeration.

King was terrible even before he outed himself as a hate factory. But then when he did, it signalled that there would be no improvement forthcoming.
