So this is a book about reanimation: the ghosts', of course, but also Mike's,
his desire to re-embrace love and work after a long bereavement that King depicts
with an eye for the kind of small but moving details that don't typically distinguish blockbuster horror novels.
Hi, everyone.
This is from the praises on Bag of Bones by Stephen King. In the underlined sentence doesn't it look like a disrespect
for King's novel since this work of fiction is considered horror? Please correct me if I was wrong about the meaning of this sentence
because it's still vague to me.
Thanks in advance.

    King's novel has small but moving details not typically found in horror novels. It's a compliment.
