      in the 2008 film max payne, there's a point in which the gloomy hero is, of course, offered casual sex by this ridiculously beautiful woman:aware that payne is mourning the murder of his wife she says something to the effect that he can call out his wife's name as he fucks her. ok. this is kinda interesting. if i was directing i'd smash cut to payne pounding away and, yes, squealing his dead wife's name. play it straight. sad and tragic but also kinda funny and very human. offer up a complexity [...]

      More like 3 1/2 stars. This is my first full-fledged Stephen King novel, so I'm not sure how it measures up against other King classics like The Stand, It, Salem's Lot, or Carrie. Sure, I've read The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, but only because it was described as a young adult novel (King-lite, if you will). I have spent most of my life actively avoiding Stephen King and here's my story as to why Mr. King and I parted ways before I even read anything by him. When I was but a wee little girl, ful [...]

      Here’s a nightmare scenario. A mysterious disaster occurs. The area is completely cut off from any outside help. Resources are limited. People are confused and scared. And Dick Cheney is in charge….That terrifying idea is what makes Under the Dome one of the best books King has done.Chester’s Mill, Maine, is a typical Stephen King small town, filled with people both good and criminally insane. One fall day, a force-field crashes down around the area, causing a fair amount of carnage and di [...]

      in brief, because i am nearly starting my first day of readers advisory class (yay!) and i have to prepare mentally for the schoolplace after the long break, plus i'm not really in the mood to write this review what with salinger and all casting a pall over my day, but book report compulsion gets the best of me, so. this book whole lotta length, not much depth. and as any lady will tell youc etc i don't have a problem with stephen king. i stopped reading him when i was a teenager not because i [...]

      UPDATE ON THE TV SERIES 8/14/2013: I gave up. I've been watching on Prime because I hate commercials. But not even Mike Vogel/Barbie's pretty face can make me overlook more of the filmmaking infelicities of the show. I didn't expect the book on screen. I did expect the show to follow the rules of TV storytelling and not just dump plotlines they set up. Not for me.UPDATE ON THE TV SERIES 6/24/2013 in 5sec: cute boys, dirty pols, meanass bitches = weeks of fun! Junior is perfect, sociopathic litt [...]

      Pink Stars Are Falling!👍🐯Flat Earthers would go crazy for this story!!!🐯👍Get to the centre and jump in!!!🐯👍To leave the Matrix!!🐯👍At least that is what they did in the TV show to escape the dome and appear outside. Is Stephen King basing this book on the Flat Earth Model? The inner realm? Agartha? Shamballa? New Jerusalem? Eden? 🐯👍. 😕

      I’m not sure how to feel about Under the Dome. In one sense, the concept of an entire town being suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world and the social, political, and even meteorological struggles that ensue is highly fascinating. But at the same time, King has really let me down with this cast of dull, one-dimensional, and highly stereotypical characters. It seems in this novel you are either a hateful, fear-mongering, murderous megalomaniac or you are a gentle, respectful, selfless i [...]

      I finished Under the Dome a few days ago. I haven't seen the mini-series, nor do I want to for a good while. That has nothing to do with the negative comments I've heard about the aforementioned adaptation and everything to do with one simple fact: I don't need to see a filmed version.Because the mental version of the book is still unspooling in my mind.Sometimes you hear a lot of hype about a book, but the reading experience falls short. Sometimes, a book is about what you expected. There are o [...]

      3.5 StarsA quiet town-Chester's Mill, Maine is trapped under an invisible dome. It catches the town off guard and causes planes to crash straight into it and will ultimately terrorize the community in more ways than one. This was my first book by King and enjoyed it, although it was over 1000 pages long with many characters to keep up with.Of course there is murder, plenty of creepiness and quite the cast of quirky characters. I was so intrigued by the invisible dome and all the images it provid [...]

    12. Will Byrnes says:

      Completely out of the blue a clear dome appears over the town of Chester’s Mill, in Maine, of course. A plane crashes into it. A groundhog is sliced in half. A woman gardening in her yard has a hand sheared off. How did this thing get there? Who or what is responsible? How can it be removed? This is not the Stephen King I am used to. I have been a fan since the beginning and have read the vast majority, although not all, of King’s books. For meUnder the Dome kicks it up a notch. Sure there i [...]

    14. Stacia (the 2010 club) says:

      Finished after almost a week of reading. I liked this for the most part, but by about the 85% mark, I was screaming STFU Mr. King! in my head. Watch an inside look at the upcoming t.v. show here.Great storytelling and characterization is present, and it gives enough weight to cancel out some of the over-excessive descriptions and random add-ins. But only to a certain extent. Obviously, my opinion matters little, since Stephen King is popular enough that he can write everything as long-winded as [...]

    15. Braden Canfield says:

      The only thing more preposterous than the premise of this book is how the characters responded to it. What a bunch of pathetic caricatures! A dome mysteriously descends upon a small town in Maine and within hours the sociopath selectman and his amazingly evil son begin wreaking havoc to be joined later by other weak-minded psychos and an army of idiot under-aged thugs who are picked to be interim policemen during the crisis. The other townies seem to see nothing wrong with this and start wearing [...]

      Of all the King books I've read so far this one was my favorite. Because of my working situation I was only ever able to read this book in 10 to 20 minute intervals and it took me about 3 months. Even with the constant breaks and interruptions I still found this book very engrossing.This book isn't conventionally scary. There are no monsters or creepers (well not really) but I think the villians in this story are much more terrifying because of the recent outbreak of fear-mongering in America. W [...]

      I really enjoyed this. I don’t watch TV so never saw the series- in fact I didn’t know there was one until I started checking out reviews of the book on . What I enjoyed most was the rapid breakdown of society in this small town. It was so believable and horrifying. Rennie was totally evil and I loved the whole cast of characters. While this was a long book, I think King managed to stay away from too much waffle this time although I’m sure many would disagree!

    18. Jessie says:

      Not my favorite book, by far. I found it to be an easy read and rather compelling, but toward the end I just wanted to get to the end to find out how it ended, not because I engrossed in the book or the characters, I just needed to know why the dome was in place.Oh, the characters. This book had every stereotypical small town character you can imagine. I mean every single one from the corrupt politician, his spoiled and violent son, only one really good cop, the lazy doctor (who misdiagnoses EVE [...]

    19. Bradley says:

      Ever wonder what it'd be like to turn your small town into a snowglobe?I saw this Superman cartoon where Braniac turned Metropolis into a miniature, too, but this book ain't that. :) Indeed, the SF elements are strong in Under the Dome, but they don't mean much to the basic story other than the setup. It wasn't a Tommyknockers thing, either, although I was very curious to see if SK would go there. Indeed, what we've got here is a bit of a Slaughterhouse Five thing. Insects in a dome, but natural [...]

    20. Jason says:

      King hit the mark with this brick of a novel! I'm a huge Stephen King fan, but even I will admit a great many of his books miss the mark. This one, though extremely long, was a fantastic read. King was really in his groove here. He's written a number of long-ass novels, but this was my favourite of the long ones. (The Stand was, for me, too verbose at times; then again, I chose to read the extended version, perhaps my own fault)The progression of the novel was done brilliantly, aided with shorti [...]

    21. Gorgona Grim says:

      Ideju o kupoli koja iznenada pada na Česters Mil i odseca njegove žitelje od ostatka sveta King je prvi put pokušao da pretoči u roman 1976. godine. Međutim, nakon prvog poglavlja, rukopis je završio u kutiji i verovatno bi tu ostao da nije bilo saobraćajne nesreće u kojoj je King zamalo poginuo. Vraćajući se na prvobitnu zamisao, roman "Pod kupolom" nastaje između 2007. i 2009. godine.Iako je kupola i njen "pad" na mali grad povod za pisanje ovog dela, situacije i događaje koje uzro [...]

    22. Dorsi says:

      Whew! I finally finished it! It took me almost 2 weeks. That is the longest it has ever taken for me to read a book. This book was quite the undertaking but well worth it. I have never been much of a Stephen King fan, but I enjoyed this one. I take my hat off to King for the ability to write such a complex novel with so many characters & story lines merging into one. What a fantastic smooth read. The characters came to life! While reading it, I almost felt as if I was part of the story, livi [...]

      Every book by Stephen King is like magic. Pure perfectness!I think every book-lover should at least read one book by Stephen King in their life.

    24. Phobos says:

      I've read a lot of Stephen King. I was a big fan when I was in my teenage years. The Stand and The Long Walk are among his best. Under The Dome is sadly one of his worst. It was a book which started as an idea for a project called "The Cannibals" in 1976. He never finished it. I was kind of disappointed, there are no cannibals in Under The Dome.The book is colossal at more than 1000 pages. This isn't anything new for King fans as many of his books are more than 700 pages. It was over 1000 pages [...]

    25. Becky says:

      Wow. In the author's note at the end of this book, King wrote "I tried to write a book that would keep the pedal consistently to the metal." I think he succeeded. If there is one thing that this book is not, it's a leisurely walk through the park. And this is what makes King my favorite author (well, the main thing, anyway), when he writes a fast-paced novel, I don't dare look away. Not only is it fast-paced, but King brings the characters and their community to life so convincingly that I'm afr [...]

      Prva misao: posle 780 stranica zaslužili smo malkoooo ubedljiviju završnicu.Bilo kako bilo, deo od 200. pa do 600ranice je blizu savršenstva i King jošš jednom pokazuje zašto je majstor svog zanata. Tako precizno portretisani likovi i brižljivo isplanirani potezi kao u jednoj velikoj šahovskoj partiji su svakako zaštitni znak ovog autora. Svaki lik ima svoje mesto i svoju ulogu u ovoj velikoj slagalici - doduše ne bi bilo zgoreg da je kraća za jedno 100-tinjak stranica, ali ajde da ne [...]

    27. Dirk Grobbelaar says:

      What a depressing book. Then he went on, looking for what he no longer thought he would find.So. Stephen King and this is the kind of thing he does best - all the ingredients of a traditional SK story are here: small town, big cast of characters, paranormal event et al. Personally, I prefer his older stories, because of the nostalgia factor, but Under The Dome is a nice return to form.There was a lot of traffic, mostly headed south. A few of these folks might have legitimate errands, but [he] th [...]

    28. FrancoSantos says:

      Muy buen libro de King. Es largo, más de mil páginas, sin embargo no se hace pesado en ningún momento. Es increíble la capacidad de este autor de sorprendernos con cada capítulo a pesar de la extensión de esta obra. Prepárense para encontrarse con probablemente el personaje que más vayan a odiar en sus vidas Big Jim Rennie. Es una persona totalmente desagradable, horrenda, odiosa, uno de los seres más hijos de puta que pueden existir, junto con su hijo Junior Rennie Es la inmundicia per [...]

      (Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter:]. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegally.)Like millions of others, some of the very first grown-up books I ever read when a teenager were Stephen King ones, which kept me an avid fan of his throughout high school and college; but then also like millions of others, in my twenties I grew to have more and more problems with King's writing, especially as [...]

    30. Maciek says:

      Many things can be said about Under The dome, but tedious is not one of them. This is clearly King's most fast paced novel since Cell. He even states in the afterword that he aimed at writing a book that "would keep the pedal consistently to the metal" and in that department he succeeded. However, that was not to be without sacrifice. King is well known for his famous characters, always well drawn and memorable - even non-readers know about Carrie and Jack Torrance. Those who read the works will [...]
