about this item

When you consider the poundage and do a page-count, it begins to make sense why it took master novelist Stephen King more than 25 years to complete this book. (Although, it's not like he hasn't stayed pretty busy in the interim.) The scope and heft of this epic work will remind die-hard fans of his early works like IT and THE STAND, and the story is classic King, simple, yet bizarre: On a perfectly normal day, a small town in Maine is mysteriously surrounded by an impenetrable dome. There is absolutely no way out or in. Where the dome came from, what it's made of, or how long it will persist plague the citizens of Chester's Mill, but for King, the real drama is in what the townspeople (and he gives a census-list of characters; more than 100 are mentioned) will do now. They are isolated from the rest of the world and claustrophobically confined under this confounding dome. Alliances and tensions inevitably form: the central one between an Iraq War-vet, a nurse, the town's newspaper owner, and three on-the-loose kids against a nefarious politico and his son, who has a dark and dirty secret stashed away. UNDER THE DOME is vintage King, updated for the 21st-century; it's frightening, gripping, elucidating, and you'll want to devour all its 1,000-plus pages in one sitting.

I invested quite a bit of time on this read and I wasn't as impressed as I have been with SK's other works.  see moreof Frequent toy shopper's review
