Overview

Read the conclusion to Stephen King’s “harrowing, powerful” (The Washington Post) #1 New York Times bestselling novel that inspired the hit CBS television drama...

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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Stephen King's 2009 Under the Dome alerted even the inattentive that the wizard who crafted Carrie, Misery, and The Shining remains fully capable of holding us ever so tightly. Set in the near future, this mammoth science fiction tale has the simplest of setups: Residents of a small Maine town find themselves trapped inside a giant bell-shaped dome. With supplies waning and their survival at stake, the townspeople polarize into two groups, one lad by Iraq vet/short order cook; the other by a hard-nosed politician. These inexpensive mass-market editions make this modern classic available in a convenient two-part sequence. (P.S. The second season of the television adaptation will begin on June 30th with a script written by the master himself.)

    Instead of complaining and giving a book a low review, why don't you do your homework and figure out what the hell you're buying before you buy it? Thanks.

    VERY misleading! I usually don't read reviews because I want to

    VERY misleading! I usually don't read reviews because I want to make up my own mind. If I had read this from Anonymous Posted on May 27, 2014 I never would have order it. I have read the original Under the Dome more than once. It is a great book, but I really understood this Nook Book was a followup of that one. You should be more careful in your descriptions.
