I actually read this as an audio book and while I thought the narrator left a bit to be desired, the story itself is typical Stephen King. He reels you in quickly with compelling characters, fast-paced dialogue and a story that never stops giving you surprises. "Under the Dome" is about a small-town in Maine that one morning suddenly finds itself under a dome that seals it off from the outside world, at least physically (cell phones, TV and WIFI still work) and cannot be explained. The small town quickly degenerates into a nightmare of violence, paranoia, power-grabbing and, ultimately, self-destruction. King keeps you on the edge of your seat through this extremely long novel, but you won't notice how long it is as you want to keep listening (or reading) more. This is an epic that is right up there with King's "The Stand". Highly recommended.
