Do they just not write ‘em like they used to?

I’m curious to get opinions. I was an avid reader my entire life and then got away from it for a couple years. I began reading again mid November of last year and have read 25 books. I have liked a lot of them but none have really blown me away, perhaps I’m just picking the wrong books. I remember years ago reading books like The Pillars of the Earth, The Winds of War, War and Remembrance, Shogun etc and how much I loved them and what an impression they left on me. Are there any authors/books today that you think are the caliber of some of the books of yesteryear? Is it just me feeling this way?
