Num dia qualquer, uma cidade fica presa num domo que mantém todos os moradores presos. Nada sai, nada entra. E além do medo de não saber quanto tempo esta força ficará sobre a cidade, personagens perversos pretendem usar da situação para ganhar mais poder e influência.

Classic King - therefore a bit of a poor ending but brought back memories of The Stand, Needful Things and Tommyknockers so all is forgiven ( )

The audiobook version was very, very well done. ( )

There comes a time in everyone's life when they feel as though they are living in a fishbowl with no way to get out and little hope for the future. Then there are those whose small world is the only world they know and want, and they will do anything and everything to keep it the same--or make it better for themselves. "Under the Dome" is one of those books that makes you think of what would happen if you were trapped, literally, inside a small town and the political dysfunctions that arise from it.

HERE THERE BE SPOILERS

The small town of Chester's Mill, Maine is mysteriously covered by an unbreakable glass-like dome, effectively trapping the people and pollution, among other things, inside. Personalities within the town begin to show their true colors, with murders, suicides, political shenanigans, and drug making and usage dominating the days the dome covers the town. The government is trying to help, but all they can do is sit and watch as the town literally self-destructs.

I thought this book was wonderful, until about the last two hundred pages. Maybe I'm vindictive, but I wanted a greater poetic ending for Rennie, and I thought that hearkening back to "Tommyknocker" days was not conducive to realism. I wanted to be scared, and wanted a lot more than the threat of aliens playing with us. But that's the way Stephen King is...He doesn't give you what you want or expect in every circumstance. However, I'd have liked for the origin of the dome to be more terrestrial--and humanly psychological. ( )

(2009) Another wild tale from King where the monster is the unexplained dome that comes down around a small town in Maine. Actually the monster in this story is the alien ?kid? that is using the dome as an alien version of an ant farm. The ants in the dome can't get out and it quickly turns into anarchy as a twisted selectman wants to turn it into his own little empire with a private army. Turns bad when a firestorm is started by an explosion at Rennie's meth lab. KIRKUS REVIEWMaine. Check. Strange doings. Check. Alien/demon presence. Check. Unlikely heroes. Check.An early scene in King's latest (Just After Sunset, 2008, etc.) takes us past Shawshank Prison, if only in the mind of a characterand there are dozens of characters, large and small, whose minds we enter. One of them, a leading citizen in the quiet town of Chester's Mill, is crooked, conniving wheeler-dealer Big Jim Rennie, whose son, a specialist in taking wrong forks in the road, is the local terror but has apparently surrendered his power to awe to larger forces¥in this case, the ones who have very gradually sealed off Chester's Mill from the rest of the world. Why? It's the kind of hamlet where a big night of fun involves driving with a six-pack and a shotgun, hardly the sort of place where the overlords seem likely to land. But these overlords, they're a strange bunch: They walk among us, and they might even be us. King runs riot with players, including a newshound who numbers among his ordinary worries ?the inexplicable decay of the town's sewer system and waste treatment plant?; a curious chap named Sea Dogs; some weekend warriors; and the lyrically named Romeo Burpee, who ?survived a childhood of merciless tauntsto become the richest man in town.? Evil is omnipresent here, but organized religion is suspect, useful only for those who would bleat, ?The Dome is God's will.? The woods are full of malevolent possibilities. Civic and military leaders are usually incompetent. And it's the brave loner who has bothered to do a little research who saves everyone's bacon. Or not.It hardly matters that, after 1,000-plus pages, the yarn doesn't quite add up. It's vintage King: wonderfully written, good, creepy, old-school fun.

Though his scenarios aren’t always plausible in strictest terms, King’s imagination, as always, yields a most satisfying yarn.

It’s a fun and clear-headed fury, though. This is King humming at the height of his powers, cackling at human folly, taking childish glee in the gross-out and all the while spinning a modern fable that asks some serious questions without sounding preachy. If the fury left a few excessive typos and a dog’s name that mistakenly changes on occasion, well, these are (mostly) forgivable sins. After all, few of us can resist such nightmares and dreamscapes.
 
King says he started "Under the Dome" in 1976 but then "crept away from it with my tail between my legs. . . . I was terrified of screwing it up." Fortunately, he found the confidence to return to this daunting story because the result is one of his most powerful novels ever.

The King book that is most readily brought to mind by “Under the Dome” isn’t an earlier large-scale apocalyptic fantasy like “It” or “The Stand”; it’s “On Writing,” the instructive autobiographical gem that cast light on how Mr. King’s creative mind works. In the spirit of “On Writing,” “Under the Dome” takes a lucid, commonsense approach that keeps it tight and energetic from start to finish. Hard as this thing is to hoist, it’s even harder to put down.

1,100 pages of localized apocalypse from an author whose continued and slightly frenzied commerce with his muse has been one of the more enthralling spectacles in American literature.
