    In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King's keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am undecided on this issue however I was disappointed with my favorite story teller's attempt to cobble together a cogent argument. For someone that can easily move between horror, fantasy, and baseball, his efforts fell short given his capabilities. Very disappointed.


    Has Guns turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What aspect of Christian Rummel’s performance would you have changed?

    Very enthusiastic


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    First chapter . . . Shakedown, had merits.

    Story
    (4313)

    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.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "King remains an artist"

    What made the experience of listening to Under the Dome the most enjoyable?

    This kept me rapt the entire time. Esparza's commitment to narrative detail and forethought expanded King's story-telling genius. Pure pleasure.
