Well, yesterday evening I finished Under the Dome. I read just about all of the last hundred pages, then King’s afterword, and put the book aside. ‘You are sorry when you come to the end’ is the quote from the Daily Express. I wonder if there should have been an elipsis between ‘sorry’ and ‘when’ where the words ‘you even started it’ have been redacted. Apparently the editor cut this book ‘down from the original dinosaur to a beast of slightly more manageable size’. Cue hollow laughter.
