I am not a fan of Stephen King. Never have been.
Yes, I’ve been told to read the Gun Slinger, that’s it is nothing like what I’m thinking. Haven’t been interested. I tried Carrie when I was grade school; who didn’t, right? I found it equal parts ridiculous and terrifying.
And now, I have found a title that I’m pretty tempted to get: Under the Dome.
It came through an unexpected source who I admire very much. In fact, it was so different than what that source usually recommends, that I am compelled to get the book from the library, just to see if it is something that I may be interested in. I might have overlooked something in the King files.
Then the clincher came: It is over 1,000 pages.
I love Fat Books. Most novels max out between 350 and 425 pages. That’s part of why I am addicted to series. It is more like a continuation rather than a new book. A single title that tops 1,000 pages? It sounds too good to be true.
Check out the cover. It’s gorgeous. And the third reason for reading this book.
