Description
Don't miss the "harrowing" (The Washington Post) #1 New York Times bestselling thriller from Master of Horror Stephen King that inspired the hit television series, following the apocalyptic scenario of a town cut off from the rest of the world.
On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away.

Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens—town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician's assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing—even murder—to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn't just short. It's running out.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: In King's new novel, THE STAND meets "The X-Files" when a solid but invisible dome descends over a small Maine town. Those inside are trapped in a new civilization of their own making. Raul Esparza attempts to do justice to King's epic, but hearing King read his author's note at the end of the book demonstrates how miserably Esparza falls short of an authentic Maine accent. Narrative passages, delivered without an accent and with impeccable timing, keep the long story moving. However, the dialogue of the primary antagonist, described as a lifelong Mainer, does not sound realistic. Esparza's children and women also fare poorly as they are voiced inconsistently and bear little resemblance to the author's details on their origins and character. R.L.L.

        Starred review from September 14, 2009
        King's return to supernatural horror is uncomfortably bulky, formidably complex and irresistibly compelling. When the smalltown of Chester's Mill, Maine, is surrounded by an invisible force field, the people inside must exert themselves to survive. The situation deteriorates rapidly due to the dome's ecological effects and the machinations of Big Jim Rennie, an obscenely sanctimonious local politician and drug lord who likes the idea of having an isolated populace to dominate. Opposing him are footloose Iraq veteran Dale “Barbie” Barbara, newspaper editor Julia Shumway, a gaggle of teen skateboarders and others who want to solve the riddle of the dome. King handles the huge cast of characters masterfully but ruthlessly, forcing them to live (or not) with the consequences of hasty decisions. Readers will recognize themes and images from King's earlier fiction, and while this novel doesn't have the moral weight of, say, The Stand
        , nevertheless, it's a nonstop thrill ride as well as a disturbing, moving meditation on our capacity for good and evil.
