I did run into the same problem I encounter with some of his work. He sets up wonderful concepts and characters in the first third of the novel, they struggle and endure through the second third of the novel, and I spend the final third wondering when the damn thing comes to an end.

Overall, though, The Dead Zone is fun and spooky and weird, which is what I expect when I pick up a King novel.
