Good trailer for the book and the adaptation.

LilWeez21 says:

Just finished the book.
It is brilliant in every way! Read it! I would have to write an essay on how much this book kept the reader engaged. And when I started part two, I couldn't put the book down. This book is terror at its finest!

Mike says:

the book was alright. I think that if I wasn't in jail I probably wouldn't of finished it. My favorite is still pet cemetery.

Guttwistah says:

For me this book was really "heavy" cause of the characters in it.They pretty rude sometimes.But still it's a masterpiece!

Stephen King – Under the Dome –
A Military-Industrial X-File Plot
https://www.academia.edu/27025515/Stephen_King_Under_the_Dome_A_Military-Industrial_X-File_Plot

Abstract:
The Queen is Dead, Long Live the Queen
Realistic Racism or Racist Realism

You have all reasons to be afraid. The world, the cosmos, the universe are against you and you will fail.

That’s the absolute pessimism of the series. There is no hope and your victory, bringing a dome down, is only the first step of the final invasion, just like Brexit is the first step towards the absolute homogenization of the world, homogenization in diversity, and not the fake superficial and rather limited diversity of the sexes (only two, more or less) or genders (about at least twelve with all orientations) but the diversity of absolutely all differences seen as an asset for all, including extraterrestrial differences if they exist or appear one day, brought back by some cosmonaut, astronaut or spationaut from the vast cosmos.

The novel was quite open on the extraterrestrial dimension. The series has become totally centered on that element.

The novel revealed how every single difference could become the cause of some segregation or violence. The series keeps that element but introduces the concept of a kinship, supposedly of extraterrestrial origin, but that is a totalitarian organization: absolute obedience (obey or die) and dependence (be dependent and survive), total submission (submit or die), final sense of sacrifice (be ready to sacrifice your life for the survival of the kinship and survive till the time has come for your sacrifice)

theivory1 says:

This is one by King that I haven't read. The TV series was entertaining. maybe I'll go pick it up after work.

Paul Salinas says:

All his books are masterpieces. I've yet to read one that I have not enjoyed. By far the best are all the Dark Tower books. Totally 19.

Koontzie97 says:

Yes, we wont be surprised by what the characters do because we have them in our lives… i need to get those bodies out of the pantry. lol all joking aside Under The Dome is a good read.

Andrea Di Atene says:

it took me 1 month to read the first 100 pages and 3 days to read the next 750.

CroMarduk says:

he writes too many books and 90 % of his books are bad. I loved Misrey and The Dark Half, other than that he's books become stale after getting through half of them…

Wendy T says:

He is very prolific and the studio often has to cut corners (characters) to make the program bankable. Did he even write the screenplay? I never expect a movie/program to be as good as the book.

BorgKing001 says:

wasn't a big of Under the Dome but King is still King in my book.

Molly Crissey says:
