Summary
On a perfectly normal fall day the little town of Chesterís Mill, Maine, is suddenly and inexplicibly cut off from the rest of the world by an invisible and impenetrable dome. While the US military scrabbles to identify the cause and rescue those trapped under the dome, the town itself quickly falls into chaos. A small handful of people, including an Iraq war vet, the newspaper owner, and three brave teens are all that stand in the way of Big Jim Rennie, a corrupt politician, as he tries to hold on to the reigns of power.
Critique
Under the Dome is a horrifying glimpse into the mind of a small town politician with the heart of a villain. He will stop at nothing to destroy his enemies, protect his secrets, and remain in power. Plenty of suspense and action keep the plot moving in this enormous book. Classic Stephen King. Recommended.
