25. Funny story about Under the Dome
Sat Feb 11, 2012, 11:34 PM
Feb 2012

I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed it. My wife listened to it and found it somehow lacking. She's not a big Stephen King fan, and we chalked her attitude up to that. After she was done with it, she began asking questions about the book. After a while, it became clear that she skipped the first (of six) parts of the audio book. Funny, with a 1200 page book, you can miss a few hundred pages and just not be sure whether or not you actually missed it.

When you're done with this one, read 11-22-63. I really liked that one. I can't say I've really enjoyed any of the movies made from Stephen King's novels, but I would like to see someone give this one a try.
