Synopsis

Stephen King's bestselling tour-de-force, Under the Dome, is now available completely unabridged on MP3 CD for the amazing low price of $14.99 and will coincide with the hardcover and audio of King's latest novel, 11/22/63.

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.

A really long audio book. I should have got the abridged version, I only listened to the first seven discs and couldnt stay interested or awake. I sent it back at disc eight, I couldnt take it any more, boooooring !

BookLender review by Dutch on 2012-08-02 09:08:53

Are these people too nasty? This is not the first time I have marveled at how well Mr. King can portray mean, selfish, thoroughly nasty men. He really seems to understand what makes them tick, which is kinda scary. This is a compelling story of good people fighting a losing battle against several unrelievedly bad people and the spineless, stupid citizens who would rather be led than have to think. It is a very, very low view of our species. This long audiobook will certainly hold your interest to the end, but you may be fairly depressed by then. The book is competently read by Raul Esparza, although I never got used to the Southern sheriff accent he gave to the evil Selectman in this rural Maine town.
