Yes, yes, well my first attempt at a Stephen King novel did not go well.
I started Under The Dome with high hopes since it didn't sound super scary and the whole idea of a town getting trapped under a mysterious dome sounded really interesting to me.
For you Stephen King fans, don't be upset with me. Horror is not my usual genre and one I never read much, so I am hard to please. Stephen King is such a popular writer and from what I read he is a GOOD writer. This book just wasn't my thing.
For one, it seemed to long and drawn out. I wanted it to move along and learn what this mysterious dome was and how the citizens of the town would react. I felt the characters were a little too stereotypical for me and I didn't get attached to any of them. I didn't care about them, so as things got drawn out, I found myself really uninterested in what would happen.
I read about 21% into this book on my kindle before I gave up.
I haven't given up totally on Stephen King. I still want to read Misery or The Shining!
