Is King king?

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I remember feeling really bad ass when I took "Everything's Eventual" out from the library a couple years ago. I felt bad ass when I read The Dark Tower(Though I didn't get through all of them. They burned-ed up.) I've just finished Duma Key, but I didn't feel bad ass. It was well written, enjoyable. But I think that was pretty much it.

In a world were it seems very few people read anymore, everyone knows/has read/loves Stephen King. Especially teenagers. (Hiss hiss)

My question is why is he so popular? I have some ideas in that regard, but I'm curious what you guys think. And also, do you think he is worthy of his lugubrious praises?

(I hope I used lugubrious right. Otherwise I'm going to look like an asshole.)
