Book Review: Under The Dome

Under the Dome

by Stephen King

This is a great story about monsters –not the killer clown-type monsters hiding in storm drains, but the kind of power-hungry type of people who take advantage of bad situations to elevate themselves while sinking deeper into depravity.  And Mr. King does a bang-up job, as usual, of setting the stage for the unleashing of the beast.  Along the course of the story, we meet some lesser evils, as well as a number of good, or, at least, salvageable people.  There is murder and mayhem a-plenty and the story careers ahead with a relentless acceleration into an inevitable inferno.

The page-count, over one thousand, may seem daunting, but the story really clips along.  The character development is top-notch and there are just enough twists and turns to keep it interesting without losing focus.  In short, Under The Dome is everything I’ve come to expect and love about Stephen King’s stories.
