Join me for 30 Days of Horror in which we spotlight one horror book for each day until we reach Halloween!
For obvious reasons, everyone is talking about IT at the moment, so because I’m like a petulant child who has to be different I’ve chosen Under the Dome for today’s 30DOH pick.
I’ve read this book twice, and if you’ve seen the size of it that should speak for itself. I thought it was great. Don’t even think about watching the TV series. That did not do it justice. I’d go as far as to say let’s just forget that ever happened…

Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens — town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids.
Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing — even murder — to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry.
But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.
