    I'm an avid Stephen King fan and this is by far one of his greatest books I could not put it down for a second. At points it was graphic but King fans like myself would be used to that, and it is needed to add to the horror of it all. Also, changing from person to person ever few pages was fantastic it gave you better insight to what they were going though and what was going through their minds. I have told everyone I know to read this book even ones that arn't readers, do yourself a great favour and read Under the Dome you wont be disappointed.
