    For me, King's writing changed when he sobered up ... but I still love him.

    I have just finished The Book of Bones by John Connolly, the latest in his Charlie Parker series. I have read all 17 of the books and normally can't wait for the next release. This one was 700-odd pages long, absolutely padded out with historical background stuff (of no interest whatsoever), and Charlie Parker was reduced to a man in a short black overcoat, who popped up very occasionally in a short black overcoat, philosophised briefly and disappeared again. Angel and Louis were tired, injured, ailing and appeared very briefly and unrealistically. Disappointed doesn't even begin to cover it.
