Book Review: Under the Dome

Under the Dome by Stephen King

The people in the town of Chester's Mill, Maine suddenly find themselves trapped under an invisible dome, unable to get out, and not knowing if it will ever go away.

There's no doubt Stephen King is a fantastic storyteller, and this book is no exception. Unlike his usual horror books, this is really the story of how the people of a small town interact with each other when their ways of life are threatened. This was a pretty good read, even though getting through over a thousand pages (my Nook version was actually a little over 1300 pages!!) took a while, the "bad guys" really had no redeeming qualities at all, and the end was a little lacking, and somewhat predictable.

I give this one a B-.

If you're a fan if Stephen King's less scary works, I also recommend 11/22/63. Also, I have not seen the show, but I have it on good authority that the book is completely different. What are your thoughts?
