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.

Under the Dome (Novel)

For me Under the Dome kicks it up a notch. Sure there is supernatural creepiness, and an explanation that is, well, disappointing. But this is Stephen King. If you read the guy for his wonderful denouement explanations you probably shouldn't bother.

What makes King so successful is that he writes great characters, draws you in and keeps you there once he has you, while scaring the bejesus out of you often enough to matter.

He kept me under his dome for all pages. The addition to his usual toolkit this time is his expansion to the political. Which of course begs a question about the value of spending, say half a year. What is the duration of labor at which one must cross over from pure entertainment to something? I've always been a political novelist, and those things have always interested me.

Firestarter is a political novel. The Dead Zone is a political novel. More scary than funny to me. Well, maybe Dome is not so out of the way for King. His other concerns usually take precedence. In Under the Dome he continues a lifelong fascination with small town life.

Most of his people have significant secrets. And we get to see their character from how they cope with the stress they experience. The book took a long time to reach its final form. He revisited the story in the s. And still avoided having to cope with the technical demands of having the story set under a dome. The inspiration for the reduction in venue was a stay in a less than appealing area of suburban Pittsburgh during the filming of Creepshow.

He wrote almost five hundred pages this time, but was still unable to figure out all that he needed to figure out. It was not until the new millennium that the manuscript turned up again. This time he was able to garner the expertise needed to get past his technical roadblocks. He returned to the dome notion and wrote up a storm. What would people do if stuck together, whether under a dome or in an apartment building?

His boogey man this time is personified by that most iconic totem of dishonesty, a used-car salesman, named Big Jim Rennie.

First Selectman Andy Sanders is pretty much a smiling, charming non-entity, content to do whatever Big Jim wants. And the third Selectman is a drug-addicted woman who is reliant on Big Jim and Andy for her supplies. If you might think Big Jim is a stand-in for a certain vice president, you would be right. All the way to his questionable ticker.

If you think Andy might be a stand-in for Dubya, right again, complete with an addiction issue. King sees Bush and Andy not so much as evil as weak, and the portrayal here reflects that. Rennie seemed pretty evil to me, complete with his insanely hypocritical refusal to use or tolerate profanity while behaving as profanely as possible, stealing critical supplies from the hospital, among other places, to support his meth lab, one of the largest in the country.

I thought there was something blackly humorous in it. It is certainly no coincidence that the evildoers here go after a truth-telling newspaper named The Democrat.

There is also a countervailing force, the Jack of this scenario, although he has a name that sounds incongruous here. Dale Barbara, known as Barbie, is an ex-military wanderer, last employed at the local diner, someone who does all he can to avoid conflict, but like a certain Corleone, keeps getting dragged back. It is interesting that the hero here is a reluctant military guy and the baddies are both civilians and cops. Note also that the honest reporter is a Republican. Keeping a hand in with supernatural elements, some town residents, particularly children, have premonitions, visions of unpleasant events to come.

Gee, do ya think they might? King keeps the action moving, and all the while gives us characters we can care about, warts and all. That is his greatest talent.

It is the reactions of the people contained within it that matter. The Dome itself could have come out of a mystical cracker jack box.

Dec 03, Amanda rated it really liked it Shelves: 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. Then we could talk about them!

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 1, pages, this is definitely a doorstop of a book. However, it reads fairly quickly. 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 day. The 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 panic.

The 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 quote 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 more 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. 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.

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 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.

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 agitated. At first I was quite 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 more 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 it. He 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 more intense once past tense changes into present tense.

It really helps to deliver the point the story is trying to make. Lastly, 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 more. View all 16 comments. Nov 17, Kemper rated it really liked it Shelves: 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 charge…. That terrifying idea is what makes Under the Dome one of the best books King has done. One fall day, a force-field crashes down around the area, causing a fair amount of carnage and disaster. And to Big Jim, just disagreeing with him makes you an enemy. Big Jim has spent years refusing to spend money on needed town improvements while involved in all kinds of criminal enterprises.

When the Dome comes down, his first concern is covering up his criminal activity, but he quickly realizes that with the outside world at bay, he can create his own little dictatorship inside the bubble. 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.

He writes a column about pop culture for Entertainment Weekly and has played himself on the show. 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.

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. View all 39 comments. Jan 11, Leo. Pink Stars Are Falling! The inner realm? New Jerusalem?

I've been watching on Amazon Prime because I hate commercials. I didn't expect the book on screen. I did expect the show to follow the rules of TV storytelling and not just dump plotlines they set up.

Not for me. Junior is perfect, sociopathic little shit; Barbie is too young and too pretty, thank GOODNESS, to be true to the book; and the amount of writing talent is adequate to the task, but no more than that. The trade paper edition of this doorstopper is out.

Remember when that was a hardcover book's top price? My review is also at Expendable Mudge Muses Aloud. Chester's Mills, Maine, is having itself an ordinary morning, and its citizens are gettin' up to all the usual things: Spending too much of their husband's money, killing girls, beating up people they don't like and driving them out of town, making evil brews, only thing missing really is a bonfire and a faggot.

Business as usual for the human race, in other words. No way in, no way out, no one can understand the nature, the origin, or the purpose of the Dome inside or outside of it. National security issues crop up. The town misfit, an Iraqi war vet, is called back into national service to solve the mystery. The local used car salesman takes control.

Think Nixon with a mean streak and a Big Fat Secret to protect. The Dome is revealed to be My Review: Just sayin'. I hated liking this book.

I resented the demands on my gouty wrists and fingers, supporting its mammoth weight, flipping the pages faster and faster and faster as I got more and more sucked in to the story.

I snorted snobbily at myself, caught up in this not-terribly-sophisticated narrative. None of which stopped me finishing the book and sighing with mitigated contentment at its sudsy, gloriously cinematically trajectory. I can see the miniseries I want to see the miniseries! It's what Stephen King does brilliantly: Tells you a story of human nature, irrefutably making points that need making about Mankind and its flaws, while wringing your withers with fear, excitement, and sadness.

The Dome was a really cool narrative device. I liked its unknowability, I was completely on board with mystery forces causing it who-knows-why I wasn't especially interested in that part, and felt it was a tidge unimaginitive coming from Mr. Shock-and-Awe himself. I had over pp of reading pleasure.

It's like potato-chip sex. The kind you have because you can. It still feels good, and no way are you gonna stop just because it's meaningless.

I suppose this last isn't comprehensible to my girly readers of either gender. Don't think too much. You'll end up in a much better mood than you started out in. View all 76 comments.

Jan 06, Jason rated it liked it Recommended to Jason by: In one sense, the concept of an entire town being suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world and the social, political, and even meteorological struggles that ensue is highly fascinating.

But at the same time, King has really let me down with this cast of dull, one-dimensional, and highly stereotypical characters. It seems in this novel you are either a hateful, fear-mongering, murderous megalomaniac or you are a gentle, respectful, selfless individual with a limitless background of useful talents. There is little in between. In one case, a character is a blatant clone of the Trash Can Man from The Stand , complete with being the cause of a widespread disaster.

Not very original. The interactions of these characters often seems forced and unnatural, and the dialogue, at times, horrendous. But still, the premise of the novel kept me going and the idea that one can be so completely isolated from functional society and the disasters which could result from this isolation became a truly terrifying prospect, especially as the story progressed.

That has nothing to do with the negative comments I've heard about the aforementioned adaptation and everything to do with one simple fact: I don't need to see a filmed version. Because the mental version of the book is still unspooling in my mind. Sometimes you hear a lot of hype about a book, but the reading experience falls short.

Sometimes, a book is about what you expected. There are o I finished Under the Dome a few days ago. There are occasionally those glorious occasions when the book exceeds the hype. For an example of this, check out Norman Partridge's sublime Dark Harvest, which I'd heard about for several years but never read until a couple months ago.

That book knocked me on my tookus. And then there's Under the Dome. This novel catapulted my entire body into the air, propelled it through the window in a maelstrom of shattered glass, and sent it tumbling and broken into the lawn.

Then, when I staggered to my feet, the darn book rose up from my bedroom floor, blasted through the window, and flattened me again. I've read more than fifty Stephen King books. Under the Dome is one of the top five. I've read plenty of criticisms about it. Too many points-of-view, unsubtle characterization, an anti-climactic ending.

Personally, I loved it. Because I adore lists, here are just a few reasons why I consider Under the Dome a modern classic: Big Jim Rennie: I love it when a villain takes over a story.

The nastier the villain is, the greater the danger to the heroes and the more powerful potential catharsis there exists in defeating him.

Buy for others

The Shark in Jaws. The warden in The Shawshank Redemption. Dolores Umbridge in the fifth Harry Potter book seriously! Big Jim Rennie is as vicious and calculating and eerily real as any villain in modern fiction.

I absolutely despised him. But whenever he was on stage, I couldn't look away. Dale Barbara was an unlikely protagonist, or at least he sure seemed that way.

At first, I thought of him as a military Larry Underwood if you're wondering about my favorite King book, it's still The Stand , but as the novel wore on, I realized how much I'd underestimated himboth his capacity for good and the depth of his sins. Plus, he had those three crucial traits: The Twists and the Straightaways: When I thought I knew who would live and who would die, I was often wrong. I never would've guessed what Andy Sanders would become.

I had no idea I'd end up liking or at least caring about characters like the town drunk and the resident meth-maker. Sure, there were plot twists I saw coming; King never sacrifices plausibility for sheer shock value.

But the things I did see coming fit beautifully into the framework of the tale, and King still found a wayvia his technique, his timing, or even his word choiceto render those foreseen developments fresh. The intertextuality with his own works or the works of othersparticularly William Golding's Lord of the Flieswas so deftly handled that the novel would have been diminished without it.

I could write about this book for days, but I think an imperfect analogy might work best here. When Michael Jordanthe best player in basketball historyreturned from retirement for the second time, it was with the Washington Wizards. Jordan had lost a step or three, and he no longer aired like he once did.

But there was still magic in his shoes, and though his last team never did much, he certainly flashed moments of the old brilliance. But in one amazing game Jordan again surpassed the fifty-point mark, including an astonishing thirty-four-point first half.

Watching Jordan out there performing his wizardry sorry , it was obvious that all his accumulated knowledge and experience had been distilled into something transcendent. He pulled up for mid-range jumpers, he knocked down threes. He even threw down a thunderous dunk.

Watching Jordan that night was like watching him in his prime, only it was somehow greater. He had defeated time. Or at least spun back the hands of the clock for one marvelous night. Only King's brilliance lasted for over a thousand pages pages on my Nook , and King never let up. Here was King scaring the hell out of me.

Next was King breaking my heart by describing the death of a character I loved. King created a villain, and then another one even more monstrous, and then he threw me a bone by killing off a minor villain.

Then he walloped me with some poetic setting descriptions before making me belly laugh at a shockingly crude joke. In other words, it was all there. The whole amazing repertoire. But that doesn't begin to describe this book. I said the Jordan comparison was imperfect, and it is. Woefully so. Because King never really retired the way Jordan did. And unlike Jordan was that night, King is notin my opinionimmersed in the twilight of his career.

No, I don't believe King's almost done. In fact, I believe, like the great Elmore Leonard, Stephen King is going to be producing amazing books for at least a couple more decades. I base this on the fact that he's a relentless self-improver, and if you don't believe that, compare his early stuff to Under the Dome.

Sure, I love his early stuff. But putting Under the Dome next to the aforementioned titles shows that King has retained the pure storytelling magic that enthralled audiences back in the seventies, yet he hasn't ceased to grow. Looking at his recent writing, it's clear that his mastery of point-of-view, his eye for detail, his ability to orchestrate such a mindblowingly complex plot are even more impressive than they've ever been.

These traits are the hallmarks of an individual who has never stopped learning, who has never gotten lazy. So yes, I loved Under the Dome. And I love Stephen King's work. I wrote a letter to him a few weeks ago, a letter I'll probably never send because I'm afraid he won't get it, and if he does, I'm afraid he'll think I'm either trying to ingratiate myself with him or worse, that I'm an obsessed fan.

But friends, let me just say this. From the moment the dome came down until the very last word of that book I was under that dread barrier too.

I shuddered at the atrocities some of the characters committed. I fretted for the safety of my fellow townspeople. I came to fear Halloween and whatever else the premonitions foretold.

But most of all, I hoped there would be a few good-hearted souls who would stand up for what was right. I stood with them under the dome.

And if you haven't yet, I'd strongly encourage you to stand with them too. View all 40 comments. Dec 30, Braden Canfield rated it it was ok Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

The other townies seem to see nothing wrong with this and start wearing blue armbands in solidarity to their new officer friendlys. Meanwhile, a small collection of like-minded good guys start to strangely gather one to another and begin bonding around their outlandish good nature and intuitive good sense, an intuition shared only by this select few who gather together occasionally to collect all their facts and come to stunningly accurate conclusions through dialogues that read like the minutes of a high school student government meeting.

My good man, Stephen King needs an editor who can snap him into shape. I don't mean to necessarily make a book like this shorter, I mean to make it better. King can handle a large ensemble of characters and a complex plot. He can even write well enough to keep me reading a huge book that I find stupid. I just ask that he be required to not simplify his characters just to drive a ridiculous plot to a rip-roaring ending.

Reviews were not always so favourable on Instagram with a lot of people claiming it had one of King "When the dawn was still long hours away, bad thoughts took on flesh and began to walk.

Reviews were not always so favourable on Instagram with a lot of people claiming it had one of King's worst endings… so I really was expecting the worst.

However, I was very pleasantly surprised. Now admittedly that may be due to having the ending semi-spoilered for me prior to reading, but even if that wasn't the case, I'm pretty sure I would still have liked it. I'm a huge fan of when King takes a small town and really fleshes it out - I love when he expands upon the different families and relationships, and even the doggos.

The Guhyagarbha Tantra : Secret Essence Definitive Nature Just As It Is

Under the Dome has a massive cast, which is always a problem for me initially trying to keep track of everyone, I felt like I was constantly flicking back to the character list at the beginning of the book. But as I progressed further into the story I found myself checking less and less often.

I hated Big Jim with the passion of a thousand suns, and I absolutely loathed his weak-minded little minions too. Speaking of Jim and his cronies, this book has a few triggers like rape and abuse, so people might want to take note of this. There's quite a lot of violence as well. This was one of my minor issues with the book - there's just so much of it that it becomes exhausting. I accept that King wanted us to really hate these guys, but I was calling for their blood about pages in… I didn't need to keep having this hammered home.

A particular highlight for me in terms of the characters was the story of Ollie Dinsmore - I was heavily emotionally involved in his story, there were even tears towards the end! I found Under the Dome to be a really fascinating exploration of what happens when a small community is just cut off from the rest of society and put under a microscope.

What happens when the usual law and rules no longer seem to apply? Also when you add in a egocentric psychopath like Big Jim Rennie who already holds a little bit of power.

It's basically a huge human experiment!! And I was here for it! Under the Dome wouldn't really be categorised as horror, but I found the concept itself horrifying, especially when King describes the smells and gases accumulating under the dome, as well as the slow decline of resources - that just makes me feel SO claustrophobic. Imagine being trapped in such a small space with Jim and his cronies where everything can be twisted to suit their agenda - no thank you!! The entire point of this book is not what caused the dome, but what was happening underneath it.

The dome is merely being used as a device to cut off Chester's Mill from the rest of the world. There were tonnes of hints and foreshadowing indicating this outcome, so I guess I don't get why people were disappointed. But that's just me! I liked the ending, and I really couldn't care less if that's an unpopular opinion. Overall, I really enjoyed Under the Dome. It's not one of my favourites, but it's a pretty damn good read.Its a monster of a book and I wouldnt recommend it to just anyonebut if you love Stephen King and already know you have a head and a stomach for his epically destructive, gory and heart-wrenching masterpieces, then go rightahead.

Stephen King The excerpts served to also document how long ago King had had the idea of being under a dome: "Several Internet writers have speculated on a perceived similarity between Under the Dome and The Simpsons Movie, where, [ The book is written ina way that by the end of every chapter something horrific happens that will urgeyou to read on.
