Under the Dome by Stephen King

Into the Wild

Read Under the Dome Online Free - 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.

Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens -- town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician's assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing -- even murder -- to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn't just short. It's running out.

in the 2008 film max payne, there's a point in which the gloomy hero is, of course, offered casual sex by this ridiculously beautiful woman: aware that payne is mourning the murder of his wife she says something to the effect that he can call out his wife's name as he fucks her. ok. this is kinda...

هل تعرف لِم قصّ الله تعالي لنا قصة النملة وشفقة سيدنا سليمان عليه السلام بالقرآن الكريم؟ برواية من أفضل ما قرأت من روايات عرفت حكمة تلك القصة، بأقامتي الحافلة بمدينة شيستر ميل بهذا الكتاب الضخم حكاية ما حدث بها صباح السبت الحادي والعشرين من أكتوبر، عندما سقطت عليها قبة غير مرئية تعزلها عن العالم كن...

More like 3 1/2 stars. This is my first full-fledged Stephen King novel, so I'm not sure how it measures up against other King classics like The Stand, It, Salem's Lot, or Carrie. Sure, I've read The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, but only because it was described as a young adult novel (King-lite, i...

Here’s a nightmare scenario. A mysterious disaster occurs. The area is completely cut off from any outside help. Resources are limited. People are confused and scared. And Dick Cheney is in charge…. That terrifying idea is what makes Under the Dome one of the best books King has done. Chester’s Mil...

UPDATE ON THE TV SERIES 8/14/2013: I gave up. I've been watching on Amazon Prime because I hate commercials. But not even Mike Vogel/Barbie's pretty face can make me overlook more of the filmmaking infelicities of the show. I didn't expect the book on screen. I did expect the show to follow the r...

I’m not sure how to feel about Under the Dome. In one sense, the concept of an entire town being suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world and the social, political, and even meteorological struggles that ensue is highly fascinating. But at the same time, King has really let me down with thi...

I finished Under the Dome a few days ago. I haven't seen the mini-series, nor do I want to for a good while. That has nothing to do with the negative comments I've heard about the aforementioned adaptation and everything to do with one simple fact: I don't need to see a filmed version. Because the...

Completely out of the blue a clear dome appears over the town of Chester’s Mill, in Maine, of course. A plane crashes into it. A groundhog is sliced in half. A woman gardening in her yard has a hand sheared off. How did this thing get there? Who or what is responsible? How can it be removed? This...
