Rose Madder - Stephen King

This is my first King book and maybe my last (unless I do decide to give IT a try)

He seems to come off asshole'ish in this book and from my understanding, he has done this at least one other time in one of his more recent books (don't remember which one). He seems to be a bit too daggone comfortable with the derogatory racial slurs and calling women out their names while describing their features more sexually than anything else. But, I guess he writes more with men on his mind? Knowing more men pick up his books. And from what I generally see from the male readers I come across, men tend to gravitate more towards male authors than females (As I said, that is my experience with what I personally see)
