    ...A matter of opinion, of course, but sK's "not his best" is, imo, better than most. And, what the heck is so wrong with the ending?!

    I'm up to the part where Jackie gives Barbie the note. This book, for me, is like visiting the Derry/Castle Rock area again. Been a long time since I've been there, LOL, and it felt good to go "home". I'm only able to read at night after work, but I read for a couple of hours a night and I can't hit the forward button on my Kindle fast enough. Thank you, Mr. King, for this book. I'm living in a small town now and I could see a couple of our previous aldermen/Selectmen in this book. I think that's what makes this book so great--the fact that anyone could turn into the characters of this book so quickly. Can't wait to find out how they get out from "Under the Dome."

    I liked this book a lot. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every book of King's--but some speak to me more than others. This is not my favorite SK book--The Stand is, without a doubt. Although 11 22 63 is now right up there too.

    Honestly, I think it is pretty amazing how many times he's hit it out of the park. No other writer has done as well--not by a long shot.

    For me, this is his best that I've read so far. It really spoke to me. I could not put Under the Dome down, total home run.

    Despite King's political skew, I did very much enjoy this thinly veiled, "Never Let a Crisis Go To Waste" book. As far as what some are calling a "weak" ending, did they want some sort of "truther" conspiracy to be responsible for putting a dome over an entire town? Not even the most hard-core idealogues whould buy that one. Thoughtless aliens were just fine with me and the comparison to an ant hill was satisfying and thought provoking. Thanks, Mr. King. I learn a lot from you.

    Hi!



    Mercy!
    I have never heard our sweet, sweet Jojo speak so colorfully! And yes, '...read that big a** book' is colorful from what I have heard from her!

    God Bless.

    Hugs.

    Peace.

    I loved it. From

    the bird being sliced in half to the leatherheads
    I didn't want it to end. I don't think there is an SK book I don't like, only ones I haven't read yet. (I realized yesterday that I never read Firestarter. Gotta get on that.)
