Under the Dome the newest book by acclaimed author Stephen King. Coming in over 1000 pages it’s a daunting task to even pick up this book. I must say at this point I am a big Stephen King fan, as far as I’m concerned The Stand is one of his best and one of the best books I’ve read. Someone said this new book, Under The Dome, was a lot like The Stand, I would say only in volume of pages.
I won’t spoil the books story, other than to say it’s a great premise but you won’t even find out what the cause of it all is until around page 850 and it was not enough for me to feel this book was worth it. The book to me became I task I had to complete, but I could have easily walked away at any point even at around page 850. This book could have been 300 pages easily and I might be saying something completely different about it, but probably not.
I would honestly have to say don’t waste the amount of time it will take you to read over 1000 pages. If you want a book that is just as big and a great story, go grab The Stand in fact I’m about due to read it again. Sorry Mr. King this just wasn’t it for me.Book Review-Under the Dome by Stephen King
