|Under the Dome was GOOD. I kind of feel like I might have wrote this in the wrong category though, because it's not really horror.
It is pretty fast paced for a thousand page book. Once I started reading, I just couldn't stop. I read far into the night each night until I was done. I can't say that it is the most gracefully written book, but it has a good flow. I got the sense that Stephen King was having a good time writing it. Like he had nothing to prove, just wanted to tell a good story. It had gruesome moments, but it wasn't scary. One thing I miss from his past books is that slow growing build up of fear. I used to feel like it snuck up on me (sneaked up?). The feeling like there was something unknown outside the light of my bedroom.
I thought this book was very good and entertaing though, and I liked the main characters. I felt like I flew through the pages, and there really weren't any droning monotonous parts that you might get in any other 1000 page book. it had some pretty funny moments too. Some of the facts/technical things seemed unbelievable, but nothing that really bothered me or took away from the story.
