Looks scary, Under the Dome was scary enough for me, i.e. not really at all

seems to be the case with most film adaptions of stephen king books.

Desperations one of my favourite Stephen King books, just finished reading Geralds Game (not that good really) and probably gonna start on The Black House next.

With most adaptations of any book i would say, can't think of any tbh that are better than the book

Reading it at the moment, have skipped all the threads in case of spoliers.

650 pages into the 880, first 400 were pretty long winded IMO but since then it is great and can't stop reading it.

Will come back once I have finished, hopefully by the end of this week

Well I finished it and have to say I was a little disapointed in the book on the whole. It was around 400 pages too long had a boring first 300-400 pages, there were too many characters to keep track on and the ending was rushed and a little lack lustre.
Given the length I wouldn't recommend this book unless you really have a lot of time on your hands.
Would make a gret movie though in my opinion. I can already see the who will play the main characters.

The movie would have to be 12 hours long! Apparently It's being made into a mini series though

I agree there's an awful lot of characters in it
