King shows once again he is a master storyteller. He keeps the reader in suspense not so much through a clever plot as with how he assembles the narrative and pulls it all together. His attention to detail is once again at work in this book, and he succeeds in creating an entire world inside the dome that most of us could never imagine and probably wouldn't want to even if we could. Fortunately, he allows the drama to unfold without a lot of supernatural gimmickry. The dome itself was really the only trick he needed.
For those readers disappointed in the ending I suggest it is the ride that counts, not the destination.
Raul Esparza is acceptable as the narrator. even though some of his accents are somewhat off geographically.
The plot is fairly predictable, but the execution of the narrative is the reason you read/listen to a Vince Flynn book. George Guidall is excellent as the narrator and makes listening to the story a fun experience. People who like Flynn will love this and people who haven't tried Flynn might be a little confused by the characters. The cast is pretty much the same as other "Assassin" books and Flynn doesn't bore his regular readers by reconstructing his characters, but newbies might not understand or appreciate some of the conflict between characters. So it is a good book but not one that new Flynn readers should start with.
