The day has finally arrived when even the most rabid fan (myself included) must admit that Steve appears to have said all he has to say.
I was profoundly disappointed by this much-anticipated epic when it proved to be nothing more than a tired retread of elements & characters from "Needful Things", "Desperation" and "The Stand". There's fundamentally nothing worth reading in "Under the Dome" that hasn't already been thoroughly covered in those three previous books. (Having re-read "Needful Things" just a few months prior, the rehash was all the more painful to witness.)
Let's not cling to the man's genius and gold-stamp everything he does. It's very clear to me why this project took so long to see light, and really shouldn't have. Just because you "can", Steve, doesn't mean you "should".
