    Again and again, microbes have shaped our health, our genetics, our history, our culture, our politics, even our religion and ethics. This book reveals much that scientists and cultural historians have learned about the pervasive interconnections between infectious microbes and humans. It also considers what our ongoing fundamental relationship with infectious microbes might mean for the future of the human species.

    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.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend the book due to the language used by the author. I found it to be quite offensive.


    What was most disappointing about Stephen King’s story?

    As stated above, the language was too course for my tastes. I doubt I will ever read another Steven King novel, despite the fact that he is a very good storyteller. I found the story difficult to lay aside once I had begun reading.
