Under The Dome Part Two

I must admit that the beginning of this Stephen king novel was a tuff slog. It took me awhile and I almost discarded it as one of those that I tried and it just was not an interesting read. In retrospect one of my mistakes was that I took too long between the first and second part and forgot some of the characters and story lines and it took some time for it to come back. Some advice: if you are going to read this one don't wait many years between the two parts.
Having said that about 40 % of the way through it started to get interesting as the hatred for the Rennie character started to re-surface. If you watch Game of Throne, think "Joffrey Baratheon" but not as good maybe as "Joff" was in a class by himself. Rennie son also does a good job of taking after his dad as an object of the audiences' affection ( Don't you just love a great bad guy).
As I got deeper into the book and the plot thickened it became the true page turner that I'm used to from King and it only took days for the second half of the book as things built to a crescendo.
This is not necessarily the traditional King but it is a thoughtful King and certainly will make you think about the very big picture about life.
If you are looking for an enjoyable light hearted summer read you can't go wrong but of course you need to read part one to really enjoy this one.
