I saw something about his most recent book "Under the Dome" and thought it sounded interesting so I put my name on the list for it at the local library. It came in, I picked it up and set to reading...ready for a good thrill. What I found was completely different.
What I found was horrible language and even more horrid situations. I guess I should have realized that "times have changed" but I was floored at the language that was in this book. I'm pretty sure I live a VERY sheltered life because I wasn't aware that there were people out there that actually speak with such vulgarity.
I also should have remembered that he is a "Horror" writer. I did finish the book because I did want to find see how it ended but I probably won't be picking up another one of his novels anytime soon.
My husband asked me what I thought of it and I told him that I was grateful that Mr. King has found an outlet for all of this horror in his writing because if he hadn't I wouldn't want him out in society. He's has a very frightening mind. I feel the same way about Quinton Tarantino and his movies.
I know that there are people out there that enjoy Mr. King's writing and Mr. Tarantino's movies but they are not my cup of tea. Not at all.
