(HAH! This time I titled it BEFORE I started typing! Me: 1 Blogger: 5 (at least). I'm catching up!)
So I finished reading Under the Dome by Stephen King this weekend. And because several of you asked me to let you know how it was (before you committed to reading all 1074 pages), I am here to tell you - it was worth it. Both in time and in the outlay of cash (retail approximately $35).
It was one of those books that grab you from the beginning. And then beckons to you every time you have a few minutes.
I refuse to spoil it for you; so basically all I'm going to tell you is this:
It's about about this small town. And then all of a sudden this invisible force comes down around the town. Mayhem ensues. There is a small town politician who attempts to control the situation. Oh, and there is a love story thrown in.
That is all you are getting out of me. If you want to know more - buy, beg, or borrow the book. I promise; you will not be disappointed.
If you need more of a review; take this into consideration:
Man-Child started the book yesterday. As of tonight, I have total control of all the "screens" in the house (tv, computer & phone) because he'd rather be reading. Now seriously? How many times does this happen? It's rare that a book wins out over screen time for a teen. Does that tell you how good this book is?
'Nuf said. Happy reading! Let me know what you think after you've read it.
