The only times I've ever felt like he did a decent job ending stories is in his short story compilations. Otherwise I feel like he just gets tired of writing, kills some folks and calls it a day.
That's how I feel. After The Talisman, It and The Stand I said never again. Get drawn in, reads hundreds of pages for some lame ending.

A friend of mine tells me to read Under the Dome but I just can't.
