'Under the Dome' is, well, long, to say one thing. It doesn't really feel that way though. King has actually been working on this book since the very beginning of his career, and, you know what, it goes to show. The story is, although not too original, well concocted and executed. The ending might prove to be a 'hit-or-miss' kind of ending though, but still, this is King at his best and most engrossing.
