Mrs. Cups’ former workplace had some kind of free book fair thingy and a brand-new copy of Under the Dome was ripe for the taking. Knowing I like King she swiped it for me. I read it off-and-on for the better part of three or so months and I just finished it today.
Wow, that’s a long book, but I liked it.
It was an interesting book too in that for the first 500 or so pages I could easily pick it up and put it down as other things got in the way, but once the book hit its stride it got REALLY good. My biggest problem was remembering the cast of characters and who was what and to whom, but I have such trouble with characters in books anyway I was pretty used to it.
I’m glad I read the book and would recommend it to anyone who has the time to read it. It’s very King-y in its style and prose and even though the book is massive, it felt like a quick read in retrospect.
I haven’t seen the mini-series and by looking at the trailer it looks godawful, so I’ll probably skip it unless I’m convinced otherwise.
Anyone else have any thoughts on the book?
