Stephen King Reassures Fans That ‘Under the Dome’ Series is “Very Good”


It’s hard being a lit lover. The anxiety of watching your favorite stories getting ripped apart for the big screen (all for the almighty Hollywood dollar) can be overwhelming. As World War Z proved, things don’t always translate exactly how we’d like them to.

Stephen King doesn’t want his fans to suffer through this. He recently penned a letter to devotees of Under the Dome, his 1,074-page sci-fi story, reassuring them that the changes made for television haven’t sacrificed the quality and content of his beloved story.

“If you loved the book when you first read it, it’s still there for your perusal. But that doesn’t mean the TV series is bad, because it’s not. In fact, it’s very good,” the author wrote. “And, if you look closely, you’ll see that most of my characters are still there, although some have been combined and others have changed jobs.”
