Description

Adapted as a major TV series, produced by Steven Spielberg, King's bestselling novel centres on a small town suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible dome.

In UNDER THE DOME, King has produced another riveting masterpiece. The end of every chapter hooks you into the next, drawing you inside a psychological drama that is so rich, you don't read it, you live it.

It is the story of the small town of Chester's Mill, Maine which is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. No one can get in and no one can get out.

The normal rules of society are suddenly changed and when food, electricity and water run short, the community begins to crumble. As a new and more sinister social order develops, Dale Barbara, Iraq veteran, teams up with a handful of intrepid citizens to fight against the corruption that is sweeping through the town and to try to discover the source of the Dome before it is too late . . .

From Publishers Weekly

14 September 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.

Customer Reviews

Great book

Well worth the sleepless nights reading it, another great book from one of the masters of horror

Great Read

Firstly, if you are like me, you probably think of Stephen King as a horror writer. He is in fact a master of horror but reading his non-horror works like this, I see him as a master writer.

This is a great read. The characters and situations are visible in your minds eye as you progress through the book. The story progression continually makes you want to read just one more page and just another and just another!

As you make your way through this novel you will grow to love and loathe characters. You will be as confused as the townspeople. The way this book is written, you will live the story. I want to tell you about the story but I fear letting you know too much.

Suffice to say I thoroughly enjoyed every page.

Under the dome

Superb, reading it left me breathless and my heart beat faster as every page turned and the story unfolded. I was there, trapped, under the Dome feeling their pain, their emotions. His best work since insomnia, enjoy
