Stephen King is one of my favorite writers, and I love almost everything he writes. I also typically love the movies made based on his books. That said, I could not finish this book. It was so ridiculously long and unnecessarily long. I kept picking it back up and reading, determined to finish because I've never not finished a book before, but I just couldn't do it. It was so boring :(
In the middle of nowhere comes the dome. Favorite scene with butterflies if you know what I mean. Good actors. Mystery and government and life of people with their secrets. Old one but must to be watched
Excellent book and movie series . Mr.King is my favorite author and movie writer. He has an amazing mind to come up with such unique books and movies. I read every book he puts out. Im a huge fan.
This was a great book! I read the whole thing in a weekend. Steven King has some fresh ideas and it’s always interesting to see where he’ll go with a story and this one didn’t disappoint
I found this at Walmart awhile back & grabbed it because I'm such a King fan. He never fails to impress me, my son ended up super into the t.v. series which I have a few seasons of on d.v.d. too!
Stephen King is a great Arthur and whenever they take his books and make movies it makes Magic this Under the Dome is super good very interesting it kept my attention the entire time
If you're into horror or sci-fi this is definitely a must-read is interesting is not predictable at all and it's definitely a page-turner so this is worth the time investment
This book was a disappointment for me and I am a die hard Stephen King fan. I had to struggle to finish it, which has only ever happened to me with TommyKnockers another one of his books I just couldn’t get into. While the story idea it’s self was an interesting one, it just didn’t flow like most of his books do. I never connected with any of the characters and didn’t care what they is in the book at all. Totally different than most of his books where I laugh and cry and become angry right along with characters who have become like friends by the end of the tale. Overall this was my second least favorite book he has put out with tommyknockers being first. I just couldn’t like the people or get involved at all.
This show was pretty interesting when it first came out then it wasn't. It was really far from the book as well. I am glad the network decided to end it before it was really horrible. My husband watched it every week, during the 2nd season I watched YouTube or Netflix on my laptop while it was on.
I'm a huge fan of Stephen King. I think his novels are brillant. I didn't like this show at all. I tried so hard to get into it as my husband loved it. I just thought it was dumb and disappointing. I would not recommend this show. i felt like I wasted an hour of my life watching the first episode.
