I have to agree with this comment! Stephen King is the first name that popped into my head. In fact, it was only after watching a couple of his stories made into movies that I attempted to read those same
stories (Thinner and The Langoliers). And I was really disappointed in the pace and style.

I am just glad that someone else took the time to imagine the plot and how it would play out on the big screen.

I might add that his physical presence, in my opinion, adds dark mystery to his work.

G.K. Chesterton. Everyone at my Christian college was obsessed with him, but I didn't see the charm.

I like Stephen King. I mention this so I can note that often discussing authors when I say I like King, people will say 'You must like Dean Koontz.'

Nope, I don't. Just read "Mr. Murder" over the weekend, first Koontz I ever finished, still don't like his work.

Without question Stephenie Meyer. The Twilight books really suck - and everyone seems to love them. I found them sugary, boring, full of artificial angst and, frankly stupid. The writing is sloppy too. Oh yeah, the Artemis Fowl books. I've tried to read the first several times, but gave up.
