Happy Friday, guys! Time for another #FridayReads…
I’m actually still reading the same this book I was last weekend, but I am toying with the idea of starting Under the Dome: A Novel by Stephen King. I bought Under the Dome by Stephen King back when it first came out and just never read it. The size of this sucker is quite intimidating, if I’m being honest. With over a thousand pages, my brain just kind of cringes every time I look at it.
They finally loaded some of the TV Show episodes on ON DEMAND in our area, so I was able to catch a few of season two. I’m loving the way the story is progressing in the show and it has really got me thinking about picking up this fat f*er! I don’t know. We’ll just have to see what happens this weekend, I guess…
Under the Dome: A Novel by Stephen King
Release Date: 2009-11-10
On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when — or if — it will go away. Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens — town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing — even murder — to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.
So how bout it, what are YOU reading this weekend?
