Default Under the Dome

Is anyone reading or already read Stephen Kings Under the Dome? I am watching the tv show and was wondering if the book is anything like the tv show or will I just get confused because the characters are different? Or will it ruin the outcome of the tv show for me?

I really want to read the book but don't want to be disappointed! lol

Oh my! My advice.... SKIP the tv series and read the book.

I have read the book (a couple times) and am currently watching the show.

I am VERY disappointed in the TV show but I should have known since most movies are VERY vague adaptations of the books and I much prefer the book.

If you do watch the show, it would still be worth it to read the book because they are skipping sooooo much that is good stuff!

Definitely read the book though!

I agree. My husband loves the show and I cringe through all of the changes. Please read the book because the show tells a somewhat different story. By the way, it been renewed for a second season. Why?

I ordered the book for my Nook after I started watching the series on tv and got fed up with 25 minutes of show and 35 minutes of commercials. I just finished the book and was very glad I purchased it. It's long but if you get into books like I do you'll wish it was even longer. Great read! I recommend it.
