STEPHEN KING “RETURNS TO HIS GLORY DAYS OF THE STAND” (New York Daily News) WITH HIS NEW #1 BESTSELLING EPIC Just down Route 119 in Chester’s Mill, Maine, all hell is about to break loose. . . . On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day, a small town is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and rain down flaming wreckage. A gardener’s hand is severed as the dome descends. Cars explode on impact. Families are separated and panic mounts. No one can fathom what the barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away. Now a few intrepid citizens, led by an Iraq vet turned short-order cook, face down a ruthless politician dead set on seizing the reins of power under the dome. But their main adversary is the dome itself. Because time isn’t just running short. It’s running out.

On a seemingly ordinary October day in the small town of Chester's Mill, Maine, an invisible dome drops down, cutting off the town from the rest of the world. This is particularly...
Gdy zobaczyłam, ile książka ma stron, byłam lekko zszokowana. Nie mogłam uwierzyć, że sobie poradzę z lekturą. Jak i pojawiły się myśli, że ja się przy tej książce zanudzę. Ale się pomyliłam. Bowiem historia miasteczka Chester's Mill okazała się tak wciągająca, że nie mogłam się od niej oderwać.Boh...
Maybe a 3.5 star read. I genuinely enjoyed the book. The concept was good and terrifying if you really think about it. What really brought the rating down for me is all the politics. Just ugh, I have no interest in reading about them and that was a good 50% of the book. On one hand, Jim Rennie was a...
Before we begin, I thought I would point out something silly. Lee Child wrote the blurb that graces the trade paperback edition of Under the Dome, one that states: "Seven words: The best yet from the best ever." Not only is Lee Child full of shit (no true King fan will call this novel his best work,...
