Jim This book would get a much higher rating from me if not for the language. King admonishes writers in his memoir, On Writing, to be truthful in writing authentic dialogue. He says, and I agree to a point that unless we are writing fairy tails, this is good advice. In Under the Dome, King has been untruthful in the other extreme. I have never seen, and cannot imagine a community in which so many of its residents use such language so regularly.
