The Dome Doesn’t Stand Up ***
Having read all of Stephen King’s novels I was anxious to read “Under The Dome” and be transported into the imagination of a master writer.
It is long, it does have a plethora of characters, and it is well written (I want to go back and mark all the cliche’s King throws in). It is however not his best. For that “The Stand” will reign supreme with ” Cujo” in second place.
The “Dome” is a good read but too predictable, and too close to an old episode of “The Twilght Zone”-The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street (1960).
