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.

Couldn't Stop Listening

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 11-18-09

I couldn't stop listening to this book. The story is wonderful and I thought the reader was exceptional. I had no trouble keeping this huge cast of characters straight. The main characters, both the evil and the good, were so vivid and so real. I loved the political angle of the story, too. I would recommend this to anyone, even people who think they wouldn't like anything by Stephen King.
