5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping!, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Under the Dome (Kindle Edition)
Was on the edge of my seat/bed/feet pretty much the whole book. If ever there was a book that stole your ability to put it down, this is it. As to be expected with Stephen King, there is a rich array of the best and worst of humanity on display (quite a lot of the worst) yet you cannot help but root for the survival of the town, and the central characters, even when they make mistakes... I don't know how he does it, but Stephen King keeps ratcheting up the tension, the horrors and the casual cruelty (of fate, of humanity, of the universe...) until it hurts to keep going but you can't stop. I think this is one of his best books for keeping you awake at night! Perhaps sometimes not as rich as some of his other books in terms of character development (almost a side effect of the situation they find themselves in... not much time passes from start to finish) but satisfying nonetheless
