I'm at the halfway mark in Under the Dome. (55% to be precise) What's that? You'd like to know what I think of it so far? You're in luck. I'm going to blab about that right now!
|I'm a sweet little woodchuck, innocently frolicking in my sweet little woodchuck way. NOT FOR LONG SUCKA!|
It's been many moons since I read a big chunky book by King. I'm having a blast sinking back into his style. It feels like coming home. I read a lot of Uncle Stevie in my formative years so reading him again has me feeling nostalgic.
|What is this dome thingy? Why can't we leave town? Confusion!|
|I'm Big Jim and I RUN THIS TOWN.|
(Yes, this is what I picture during Big Jim scenes)
(There's a mention of Lord of the Flies. I think that ups the literary cred.)
Also? It's funny. Even a bit wise.
"...if you were seeing a lot of horseshit, there had to be a pony in the vicinity."
"Sexy May had met Erudite November, and now they were stuck with each other, refugees in the New England version of No Exit."
"Give a man or woman back his self-respect, and in most cases-not all, but most- you also give back that person's ability to think with at least some clarity."
To sum it up, I'm having a good time with this book and I'm looking forward to the 2nd half.
Are you reading along? What do you think so far?
