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.

Encompasses more than just the horror of our worst natures, but is also an eccological warning.
We are all under the dome.

If only the universe were really like this. But perhaps it is, somewhere. I found this book very entertaining, and have enjoyed the previous books as well. I hope Audible will soon add the next in the series to its collection.

  • I Am America (And So Can You!)

What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes this as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's.

Unlike his show, this is only sometimes funny, and is mostly tedious and boring.

Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

  • It's a love story--it's a horror story--it's both

Well crafted. Great writing

Unlike some of his books, which end weaker than they started, this one maintains great writing
to the end. My only complaint is that the villian has to be the familiar southern crazy.
But other than that slight fault, this is his best in years.

Better than...

Obviously its not great literature like Tolkien, which it borrows from, but it is far more entertaining than Robert Jordan"s wearily drawn out muddle.
