I wasn't disappointed with the ending as some of you seem to be.

First of all, I thoroughly enjoyed Under the Dome. I did however think it could be 200 pages shorter. I started skimming after page 350 and things picked up again around 500.

I wonder what it is like to be the editor for King. I'd be scared to touch anything. I highly recommend it. It is, as others have stated, vintage King. I think my favorite is still Salem's Lot (but then maybe that's why I wish UtD was shorter!).

I felt exactly the same way.

I really enjoyed Big Jim as an antagonist though:

Spoiler:
His "eating roast beef and mash potatoes with Jesus in heaven" line is both funny, and kind of scary

Yes it was my favorite also...
It was my first King book and it was the first book I ever read that actually scared me...

Agree. It was like King jammed a 600 page novel into 1000 pages.
