Stephen King's tour-de-force with more than 100 characters follows the apocalyptic course of events when one Maine town is physically cut off from the rest of the world.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."

Although it is long, I did enjoy the story and stayed with it through all 30 discs.
I felt it had good character development and am looking forward to comparing the book to the new television series by the same name.

Damn. Stephen King has been such hit or miss for me lately. Add Under the Dome to the latter column. I tried, I really tried to like this one, but I feel the story took too long to figure out what it wanted to do. Normally I don't mind as long as the characters are worth paying attention to. Not this time. I threw in the towel about 1/3rd of the way in.
