    Nobody blends good science with bad puns as brilliantly as Spider Robinson. Now he's back with the latest chapter of the Callahan saga: an improbable tale of impending doom, a road trip, space, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.

    Kathryn says: "Purchase Callahan's Chronicles First!"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    I'm a huge Douglas Adams fan. I just happened upon Callahan's Key durring a search and it sounded a bit like a Douglas Adams book. I couldn't have been more on the money. Spider is like the American Version of Douglas and I can give no higher priase then that. Barrett Whitener is a great narator! Listening to this book was like going on a great vacation with good friends. Audible, PLEASE GET US MORE SPIDER ROBINSON BOOKS NARRATED BY BARRETT WHITENER! I'll buy them all!

    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.

    Venita says: "Lenghtly but good, ending was rushed"
    "The end sucks!"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    LOTS of time well spent. This is a VERY long book. The narrator is excellent.


    Would you recommend Under the Dome to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. The ending really doesn't make any sense and the good guys suffer FAR more than the bad guys.


    Which character – as performed by Raul Esparza – was your favorite?

    Hard to say as there were SO many of them. Raul did a wonderful job with all of them.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. They made a TV series out of it though which from the little I've seen is VERY different from the plot of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    The end sucks.
