Under the Dome review ¼ eBook or Kindle ePUB 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 More like 3 12 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 if you will I have spent most of my life actively avoiding Stephen King and here s my story as to why Mr King and I parted ways before I even read anything by him When I was but a wee little girl full of innocence and a precocious love of reading my mom was also a voracious reader As I was consuming Little House on the Prairie books my earliest encounter with book rape thanks grandma and Nancy Drew I began noticing that mom was always reading these big ass books with KING running down the spine When she wasn t reading these books they were always placed on top of the refrigerator which was well out of my grasp Eager for us to share this love of reading Mom curiously had no interest in the plight of the Ingalls family I begged and pleaded to be allowed to read the King books Gee wouldn t it be fun if Mom and I read the same books Then we could talk about them I thought Days weeks months went by and eventually my constant wheedling became too much She relented but the deal was that she would pick the scene I was allowed to read She chose a particularly horrific and descriptive scene from The Stand I read with increasing horror Nancy Drew never encountered messed up shit like this When I finished that scene I handed the book over and never asked to read King again And I stepped lightly around Mom from that day forward I suddenly understood that if that woman snapped it would be ugly and she would know what to do with the bodies Therefore unlike most teenagers I skipped over the desire to consume everything King between junior high and high school And this brings us to present day and my first King novel At 1072 pages this is definitely a doorstop of a book However it reads fairly uickly My main complaint is that many of the characters are one dimensional stereotypes There are no shades of gray in the small town of Chester s Mill At first this bothered me however I think maybe individual characters had to be sacrificed in order to portray the real character small town America and how it reacts to cataclysmic events If King shorthands individual characterizations he nails the panic and herd like mentality that takes over when uncertainty is the order of the dayThe premise of the novel as blatantly presented by the title is that Chester s Mill one day finds itself cutoff from the outside world by a mysterious dome that perfectly conforms itself to the borders of Chester s Mill In the days ahead the people wait and worry as the United States government desperately tries to free them As hope begins to dwindle reason is in short supply as people trade in their humanity for mass hysteria and panicThe dome is not however the ultimate villain in this tale The real villain is Big Jim Rennie the town selectman who has been waiting for just such a clustermug so that he can claim control of the town Big Jim is the most vile type of Christian one who believes that being able to uote scripture and abstain from saying cuss words is all it takes to be amongst God s chosen Big Jim does everything in the belief that God is on his side and damn anyone who tries to get in his way for not only are they his enemies but enemies of Christianity itself It is possible to have religion without true faith and Big Jim is proof of that He has customized his religion to serve his needs indeed his belief in God is little than a manifestation of his own belief in himself as superior as chosen to be above all others It appears that my review may be destined to be as long as the book so I ll cut it short Weaknesses there are a few clunker sentences that pulled me out of the story there is an abundance of detail that I could have lived without and I was disappointed in the reason for the dome because it seemed so obvious Strengths King deftly keeps his cast of characters straight and realistically interacting with one another he captures the terror and bovine like stupidity that takes over when day to day life is disrupted and threatened there are some colorful cuss words that I hope to employ in the near future and there s a catastrophic scene toward the end that is one of

Under the Dome review ¼ eBook or Kindle ePUB 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 awayDale Barbara Ira 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 th 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 chargeThat terrifying idea is what makes Under the Dome one of the best books King has doneChester s Mill Maine is a typical Stephen King small town filled with people both good and criminally insane One fall day a force field crashes down around the area causing a fair amount of carnage and disaster The Dome is uickly found to be impenetrable and while the townspeople can communicate with the outside world via cell phones or wireless internet they re essentially on their own If the situation wasn t bad enough the town is now in the hands of Big Jim RennieForget about Randall Flagg or Annie Wilkes or the Crimson King or Pennywise the Clown Big Jim a used car salesman and town selectman is King s scariest villain ever Why Because America lived through a Big Jim like reign after 911 and it s all too easy to picture how much worse it could have gotten while reading this bookKing isn t very subtle in the allegory here Chester s Mill is the stand in for America and Big Jim is obviously based on Cheney a corrupt political weasel hiding behind the dim witted first selectman of the town as a front to cover up his shenanigans He doesn t drink or smoke and talks about his love for Jesus but Big Jim is utterly ruthless about destroying his enemies And to Big Jim just disagreeing with him makes you an enemyBig Jim has spent years refusing to spend money on needed town improvements while involved in all kinds of criminal enterprises While he demands total power and authority he s actually completely incompetent at leadership except for placing blame and manipulating people When the Dome comes down his first concern is covering up his criminal activity but he uickly realizes that with the outside world at bay he can create his own little dictatorship inside the bubble And of course he s doing it for the good of the town A small group of people realize what Rennie is doing and try to stop him but they vastly overestimate what the threat of eventual punishment from the outside will do They just can t believe that anyone would actually go as far as Big Jim is prepared to do and while the federal government tries in vain to assert its authority Big Jim is all too happy to thumb his nose at them and continue to consolidate power even as the air inside the Dome is getting awfully staleKing s always been terrific at depicting the strengths and weaknesses of a small town in books like Salem s Lot or Needful Things but this is something different He claims that he s had the idea for this book since the mid 70s but never completed it because the science of what would happen within the Dome was beyond him Delay may have been a blessing I don t think this would have been the same book if it wasn t for the BushCheney administration after 911It s being routinely pointed out in various reviews that the plot here is eerily similar to The Simpson s Movie where the government puts a giant dome over polluted Springfield I ve read an interview where King claims that he had no idea about this until the book was written and someone told him I m going to cry bullshit on that He writes a column about pop culture for Entertainment Weekly and has played himself on the show I find it really hard to believe that he somehow missed The Simpson s Movie having a giant dome in it It s very weird that none of the people within the Dome ever mention the movie since King has never been shy about incorporating pop culture references beforeBut that s nitpicking and doesn t change the fact that this story and Big Jim scared the crap out of me I grew up in a small town and I could easily think of some of the locals who would have tried to take over after a crisis if left unchecked and some of them probably would have been worse than Big Jim and his crowd of hand picked bullies Although this is a huge book and King has been bad about over writing in the past this one flies by and I actually found myself wanting a little detail about some of the people since many of them don t get much of a wrap up I was a shade disappointed in the eventual explanation to the cause of the Dome and how it is resolved but overall this is going to end up being one of my favorite Stephen King books
