The thing that came across so well in this one is his love for his characters. Their relationships are enviable and so when he wrecks it all (and makes you watch), it is all the more wrenching.
I also remember pacing myself with this one. Savoring the dread and the suspense was really important to me, so I took breaks deliberately. It really amped up the tension.

I haven't read all of his books, but the only ones that I haven't really gotten into are the Dark Tower series - read the first, liked it, started the second, and put it down.
