Stephen King Reads from Under the Dome

Stephen King’s next massive new book, Under the Dome, hits bookshelves on November 10th, and publisher Scribner posted a preview on YouTube teasing some of the spooky to be found in this epic new tale. How epic, you ask? 1,088 pages epic. Hope you’re ready to read!

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 War 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.

    “Chester’s Mill is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field”

    …and then nine months later, a number of women give birth to creepy, blonde children? Sounds familiar.

    Duma Key is a pretty massive book as well. I’m looking forward to this although I still haven’t made it all the way through Just After Sunset. He seems to be firing on all cylinders once again. Good thing he didn’t stay retired. There’s still nobody alive that does it better.

    Over a thousand pages!?!!

    Looks like King is back to writing epics again. And nobody does it better, to be honest. I still think THE STAND is the greatest novel of the 20th century.
