    I wish he'd stop selling his stories to network TV.

    No shit. I'd love to see a Stand remake as a 12 part HBO series.

    Stephen King ripped off the Simpsons movie?
    Anyone read it? Its been a long time since I read a King book, I think Needful Things was the last.
    If its any good I might give this one a try.

    I did, I wasnt thrilled with it. Pretty standard King fare, I can see how it can be stretched out into an extended series but its going to come off pretty bland IMO.

    "It" is one of mine.

    Needful things didn't come off on screen well at all.

    Just finished the 8 book deal tower series.. Like it a lot.

    Is the dome supernatural, or did he go the alien route like Tommyknockers?

    Well I wasnt going to spoil it or anything.

    Side note, I just bought the Wind through the Keyhole for ~$15 and with the free 2 day shipping from the free Amazon Prime trial (Thanks, new kindle) Ill have it by Thursday. Might actually pay the $80 a year for that service.

    It's worth it. I let my service lapse because I'm saving money for an inevitable move. I recently bought something from Amazon, and the wait for the free Super Saver shipping is pretty bad.

    Also it comes with streaming of a bunch of free movies/TV shows from their instant video service.

    I don't think a quick bullet point plot synopsis spoils a King book, at least not the older ones I've read.
    I never really liked his alien based stories as much, Tommyknockers was ok, and I thought a much better beginning than ending.

    The other one about the aliens that lived in peoples assholes was a bit of a low point..

    I love my Prime sub. It's saved me so much fucking money that it's more than paid for itself.

    I also like the prime sub . I buy 2-5 books a month and I hate waiting for shit to get here. I always pick next day delivery for $3.99 or whatever it is.


    Under the dome was a long read. Kind of ok. Sorta good. Should make a great series.
