Read this book last year and agree with your review. I loved reading it. Mr. Mercedes was pretty good also.
Stephen King does love to write big books. The kind of books that make even the most voracious of readers a bit anxious. On the other hand, over the span of hundreds and hundreds of pages, the King creates such a universe that you get immersed into it to such an extent that you become emotionally attached to the characters, the way they think, the way they talk. The story becomes an alternate reality, the characters your friends.
The same thing happens when reading Under the Dome. One of the most interesting novels about the way the human psyche changes when put under pressure, a novel about the crumbling state of the human condition when the rules that keep society into place break apart.
