Under the Dome
I just finished reading "Stephen King's Under the Dome". I couldn't put the book down. I had never did see any of the TV series and I am sure that made the book even better. The author said he first wanted to write it around 1980 so he put it off for a long time. It has been out for several years so I also put off reading it for a long time. The level of detail in this book is remarkable. Like many of Stephen King's books, it is so real, and in places so violent, that I felt a little guilty reading it.
I have read in the last year, 11/22/63:A Novel, The Stand, and Under the Dome. I am not sure if I could pick only one as the best. In some ways the 11/22/63 book was better because it was an interesting mixture of history and fiction with some real twists. It also didn't have the level of violence that the other two did, which I felt was a plus.
I have been thinking about the question, "what are the things that I love to do?" The book Craft A Life You Love was really a book that made me ponder this more. Reading is one of those things that makes the list.
Comments on Pictures
See yesterdays post for some insight into why I picked the picture with dogs eyes. The women's eyes seem to reflect happiness. How could you not find that face interesting?
Happy Birthday Dad
Yesterday would have been my Dad's 103 birthday. His hat is a memory prompt.
