Under the Dome to be a CBS Series

LINK

This piece of shite gets to be a television series? What the frick? This book is literally the ONLY book I have ever regretted reading. It has no redeeming features. The story sucks. The characters suck. The ending sucks. I'm not a treehugger, but I mourn the fact that so many trees gave their lives so this abortion could be printed.

Quality of the book aside. If I remember correctly, the entire fricking story takes place over 4 days before ending in typical King fashion of Gotcha! Hahahaha. I'm so clever. Except King hasn't done anything clever in decades. How the frick will this even translate to the screen? How will the screenwriters cover up the glaringly obvious logical inconsistencies regarding character development and plot progression. I'd wager a left testicle that no one in the studio actually took the time to read this pile before greenlighting it.

There are so many good stories out there. Why choose this piece of shit?

You're entitled to your opinion. You obviously like Joe Abercrombie so you have taste...

But really...you liked this book.

If you are going to go dystopian, character driven, depressing stories, why not the Running Man as written? That's something I could get behind.

Under the Dome just sucked from start to finish. King stopped trying years ago.

That's easy. There was no character development.

11/22/63 was his best book since It.

I like a lot of King's books. I simply couldn't even finish this one. It was terrible.

Let's hope they leave out the gang rape scene that has the crying baby in the other room while his mama is getting rammed by four cops, one of them has a giant cock and rips her vagina providing plenty of "lube."

Hey now, don't frick with the King.

This novel wasn't very good but the man is still a master story teller.

11/23/63 is his best novel ever, IMO.

Read it. The first few were good. The rest were just okay, and on par with your standard gritty-fantasy fare. It was a series written for King fan boys. While I like King, he's not my favorite. Without that extra touch of finding well-known and little-know characters from the Kingverse sprinkled throughout the story, they were just okay.

I'm not a King fan, but it's an interesting premise and I've been meaning to read it. Recommend?
