King's best fiction in years!,
This review is from: Under the Dome (Kindle Edition)
There was me thinking all was lost with King when he comes out with a whopper of a novel, Under The Dome! Here are the good things as well as the bad things from king's new novel :)
1- King really has learned not to put add too MUCH description into this book. I found when reading that there seemed to be more dialogue than ever before.
2- This book is fast paced all the way through. When reading it i didn't get bored for a second, instead i found myself reading until the early hours of the morning, wishing that my eyes would move faster so i could see what would happen next.
3- The idea. The idea of an entire being cut off from the world is an interesting one that king pulls off wonderfully.
4- Jim Rennie, Without a doubt the baddie of this book, Jim Rennie is one of the best written characters i have ever read. I literally wanted to kill him as i read. He was the jewel on the crown for me in the book.
1- Lack of character. Besides Jim Rennie i felt that the rest of the character didn't develop well. Character development is usually a strong point of King's and yet in this book there is little or no character development for the characters.
2- The ending. There are no spoilers here :) The ending didn't seem to live up to the rest of the book, it seemed far too simple of an ending and yet there was no way i could have predicted how it would end, no way at all. I wonder if King knew how it ended when he wrote it.
The good things graciously outnumber the bad. It's one heck of a book in both length and quality and if you're after a really good book to tide you over for a week or two, this is it. Great value for money and one in which will remain in my top ten King book list.
It's worth the money, hell double the money it costs.
After reading the book you'll realise, as did i, that we're all under a dome of sorts,our planet :S
Happy reading everyone!
