Finished Stephen King's "Under the Dome."

It was............ok. Very predictable, the characters are, for the most part, incredibly shallow and stupid (and there are too many of them), and the ending is unsatisfying.

Now, gonna give some Tom Clancy a try:

Is no one going to point out why your wife bought you 3, 800 page books? Seems like something is missing here

She knew I always wanted to read them. I'm fascinated with history in general and the Civil War in particular. Shelby Foote was quite entertaining in the Ken Burns film and he's also a fellow UNC alum.

Side note: Our new dog got bored one afternoon and chewed through a good portion of the 1st 2 volumes.

I LOVE the Jack Reacher series. He is seriously such a kickass character.

I love how he'll go into a department store, buy a set of new clothes, and throw the old ones out. No paper trail, no material posessions, nothing.........

If you like Reacher then youll love Harry Bosch series by Michael Connelly. The first novel is The Black Echo. He is a total badass.

Believe me Michael Connelly will not disappoint. I hope you get one of his novels because I know you will enjoy it.
