Under the Dome review ¾ 109 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. Man I really hope no one ever tries to make me choose my favorite King book because I would never be able to make a decision Every time I read one of his books I m absolutely blown away by the amazing writing style and by how fast the sometimes massive amount of pages fly by Even though this story was once again told in great detail I never felt like scenes were unnecessarily drawn out I thought the plot progressed at an appropriate speed with a fitting development I would say that the story in general had many realistic aspects The concept of a dome suddenly appearing over a town might sound outlandish and far fetched but the execution was done in a very believable way The characters behaved in completely normal and humane ways both good and bad calm and agitatedAt first I was uite intimidated by the big number of different characters I got to know them pretty well rather fast though as they were all described in good and memorable ways They all had several facades to them which made them very authentic and some than others lovable I m sure that you would find all these types of people in a real town Stephen King just knows how many different character traits there are in the world and he never fails to include many of them This helps immensely to paint a picture of a town and all the different people that live in itHe also knows how to write out of the perspective of all those different kind of people It doesn t matter if we see the viewpoint of a man or a woman a child or a senior an established wealthy person or a messy alcoholic or even in some instances a dog He manages to hit the nail on the head with every single perspective Sometimes the story was suddenly told by an outside narrator and a different tense I often find these sudden changes in the middle of a story confusing and rather annoying but of course King knows how to do it in the right way and use it to his advantage He only uses this tactic sparsely which is what makes the story feel even intense once past tense changes into present tense It really helps to deliver the point the story is trying to makeLastly I also would like to show my appreciation for the little ordinary things included throughout the book Despite all the drama and all the things that happen there is still time found for a mum wanting her son to clean his room kids playing games and so on This adds another layer of realism which makes me love this book even

Under the Dome review ¾ 109 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 the most terrifying and well written that I ve ever read Cross posted at This Insignificant Cinder
