Stephen King's tour-de-force with more than 100 characters follows the apocalyptic course of events when one Maine town is physically 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."
I have not finished reading the book. It is a great novel, so far. I do not do any of the "avoid" on helpfu hints.Thank you

Another Awesome Book by S. King
As always, Stephen King never disappoints when writing a new story. Just when you think he couldn't possibly have a untold story, he writes another. This is a book that you cannot put down. It will keep your interest from the moment you start, and you'll not be able to stop thinking about it. I give this book A++, a worthwhile investment. Even if you are not a King fan, you'll LOVE it. If you are a King fan, don't miss this story, you'll be impressed with S King all over again.AWESOME

Under the Dome
Classic Stephen King! Loved it! I have admired and loved his work over the years. Under The Dome is another of his many books I have come to love. Many of his books have been made into movies. Hopefully this one will be made into a movie too.
