KINDLE REVIEW: UNDER THE DOME by STEPHEN KING

I have been a Stephen King fan since high school and have read almost all of his novels. The first half of his career was the best. The middle 25-35% was only fair but the last 15% has seen a nice comeback.

Like many of King's books, Under the Dome is big, close to 1100 pages but this one reads very fast and is a page turner in the true sense of the word. The pacing is excellent and for every interesting problem that arrises, something is resolved. The biggest problem I had with this book is having seen The Simpson's Movie and trying to keep it out of my mind.

In addition to the scifi element of the dome, King explores small town politics, small town violence, small town kinship, crystal meth, murder, rape, corruption, religion, teabaggers and very pleasingly (at least for me) the media and military and the effect of the dome on this town and the world.

MUG SHOT MONDAY

For some reason and without warning, one of my favorite blogs closed shop -- AGAIN -- hip n edgy and before that famous like me. If you know why or where he has gone, I'd appreciate knowing. Until then, I have decided to do my own version of one of my favorite weekly posts of his -- MUG SHOT MONDAY. My version will be somewhat different and will hopefully improve.
