Season Finale: The Unexpected Rise and Fall of the WB and UPN is a pretty good read, especially if your nostalgic for those networks or the 90s in general

I was thinking that might be worth a read. I've not read all of King but read a few, always wondered what his newer material was like.

How is it when you really get into it?

I'm lost without my iPad. I never read when it worked, and now it's broke I feel like there is so much I want to read. Ridonculicious.

Under the Dome was kind of a flop for me. I feel like he revisited a lot of territory from The Stand. I enjoyed it, but it was 900 lbs of book and I felt like I'd already met most of the characters before.

I loved Duma Key and Lisey's Story. They're both very surreal and haunting, very supernatural but about very real-feeling people.

All the short story collections have been reasonably good. I liked Everything's Eventual and Just After Sunset better than Full Dark, No Stars.

"N" from Just After Sunset gave me the shivers.

Jack Kerouac or Cormac McArthur? Because I read McArthur's one and, well... you can't call it the drizzling shits because it's got that ~critical acclaim, but let's just say I would rather have never read the thing at all. It's one of those where you wait for it to get awesome and it never does.

Last two books I read were of Conn Iggulden - Conqueror and Empire of Silver.

I'm going backwards with the whole series since I started reading the fifth book and then moved on the 4th.

Now I'm searching to buy the third

Isn't it Cormac Mccarthy or have I been wrong thinking that? to be honest I think I just want to read it to see what I get out of it. I've seen the film and the book interested me. It's one you can pick up for next to nothing as well.

it's a great book with a good ending (love king but some of his endings really let him down)im sure his son helped re-write the ending though so that could explain a few things

under the dome would have been quite high up on my all time faveourite books list if it wasn't for the terrible ending, that said i can't for the tv show.
