Under the Dome is a science fiction novel by American writer Stephen King, published in November It is the 58th book published by Stephen King and it.
Julia becomes the conduit between Colonel Cox and Dale Barbara via her cell phone. Julia and Dale have a budding romantic relationship. Both Dale and Julia are gutsy and tough, brave enough to try any chance they might have for survival. Julia comes from a family of news executives; the newspaper is a family concern.
She was groomed early for success and was viewed by her peers as a "goody-two-shoes". A confrontation with her classmates in fourth grade caused her to rethink her status and changed the course of her academic career; however, this same confrontation is key in helping her formulate a plan to end the siege. James "Big Jim" Rennie — A power-obsessed second selectman of Chester's Mill based on Dick Cheney ,  owner of a used car dealership and the biggest crystal meth lab on the east coast.
He is owed favors by virtually every person of authority in town, and is rubber stamped by Andy Sanders, the grieving and incompetent first selectman, and Pete Randolph, the new, incompetent town police chief.
Big Jim directly controls both Andy and Pete through most of the story. His actions make him responsible for the deaths of many others. Presumed dead from heart failure in the town's emergency shelter. James "Junior" Rennie — Junior is a smalltown thug and son of the most influential man in Chester's Mill. After he is deputized, he recruits new police officers for his father. Junior gradually devolves from a violent but somewhat sane thug to a paranoid, angry sociopath , suffering from a brain tumor disguising itself as migraines.
He particularly hates Dale Barbara, who laid a beating on Junior and his friends even though they outnumbered him. Dale could have had Junior arrested for assault, but Dale was an outsider and Junior's father was Big Jim. He later molests the corpses of the two women, referring to them as his "girlfriends" in his delusional state. He slowly becomes more delusional as the novel progresses and his tumor becomes more debilitating. Eventually Junior comes to the false conclusion that Barbara has poisoned him and sets out to kill him.
Rusty is married to Linda Everett, a police officer, and has two young daughters, Janelle and Judy. His children are the first of many to experience seizures and prophetic visions from the device that generates the Dome.
After the town's doctor dies, Rusty tends to those that are ruined in the chaos that erupts after the Dome's arrival, maintaining a cool, optimistic attitude in a time of stress. Rusty is arrested for threatening Big Jim, but escapes and helps the other survivors.
Joe is a dedicated skateboarder along with his two friends, Norrie Calvert and Benny Drake. Mature and intelligent beyond his years, Joe is one of the first in town to seek answers for the cause of the Dome rather than try to establish a semblance of order.
He organizes a protest at the Dome's wall—assisted by Norrie and Benny—and manages to rally the town before an incident calls the entire protest off.
He later becomes a valuable ally of Dale Barbara, assisting him in providing a video feed during the incident early in the book where the government sends a missile to try to destroy the Dome.
Afterward, he continues to make an effort to find answers to the Dome with his friends, and is among the group that finds the alien generator in the town's back fields.

Big Jim and some others know that Phil has become "The Chef" and is holed up at the Christian radio station, charged with cooking vast amounts of crystal meth, hence his name.

This is a typical Stephen King book. I was glad that it wasn't quite as deranged as some of his works, but it was dark. I liked it ok. I was a little put out by his use of a sudden appearance of a first person narrative description in the last third of the book for a few pages. It seems like something that an editor would have caught and said, "this style doesn't fit. This literary device might have worked if it was used t This is a typical Stephen King book.
This literary device might have worked if it was used throughout the book, but not as a one time shot near the end of the story. I though the ending was a little weak.
Les menaces ne suffisent plus? Cela semble un peu facile de la part de Stephen King, un peu comme un "faute de mieux", et je sais qu'il est capable de beaucoup mieux que cela. Jan 02, Jennifer rated it really liked it. Mais j'en relirai c'est certain. View all 4 comments. Apr 09, Danna rated it did not like it. In a word: No spoilers here, simply a warning to save your money and check this out from a library if you want closure. There is not enough substance to warrant two books, grindhouse is not horror, and what a disappointing deus ex machina excuse for the dome.
I was really hoping for better. Also, I'm not going to bother watching the TV series. All I really want to do now is re-watch Jericho ; now there's a show that gets it right! A little too much relationship drama for my taste, In a word: A little too much relationship drama for my taste, but otherwise much more compelling than this.
Sorry, Mr. King, this Constant Reader was not impressed. View 2 comments. Jul 25, Renea rated it it was amazing Shelves: A stark look at the sheep following a leader and burned in the end for not thinking for themselves.
Jun 12, HornFan2 Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves: Guess I've gone full circle in my reading, grew up in NH, my favorite bookstore was the now defunct Paperback Booksmith store were I discovered Stephen King in a local author display.
At the time, I just read Westerns, King was the first fiction author I tried. Really like his writing a lot, arguably along with J. Rowling the Guess I've gone full circle in my reading, grew up in NH, my favorite bookstore was the now defunct Paperback Booksmith store were I discovered Stephen King in a local author display.
Rowling they are two of the best wordsmith's out their, they just pull you into their pages, your so engrossed in reading that nothing distracts you and they leave you eagerly waiting for their next offering. Glad that this was broken into two parts, made it easier to read and even though it took me 3 years to finish with the 2nd part, from when I read part 1.
One of the cool things with King, you don't forget the story, he's a master with these good verse evil reads and his characters are unforgettable, good or bad. He puts you in the bomb shelter as Big Jim dying from a fatal heart attack being haunted by those he killed, gasping his last breaths, thinking he'll be sitting at the head table eating with Roast Beef and Mashed Potato with Jesus. Glad my reading found it's way back to King, definitely won't stop reading his books again and have some pretty scary creepy reading to catch up on.

Ca marche avec le racisme, l'homophobie, l'islamophobie, etc. En revanche, il l'a fait dans son traitement de la chute, un peu rapide sur la fin c'est un comble pour pages d'intrigues. Better than the first in that many things happen there. But the pace is still devilishly slow and he goes back every minute to tell the story of another character.
It is easy to read but it feels like he's wasting time and chapters on trivial things instead of telling us more about the important stuff. Never got into it at the end even though the idea was cool. Two huge books to tell that story, that was a bit too much! Mar 25, Nikki rated it it was amazing Shelves: It was action-packed with loads of thrilling scenes, gruesome deaths and awesomeness.
And really: This book is so, so, SO much better than the television series.
I would not even bother with watching it if you haven't done so yet. It's much better to stick to this book only! May 27, Nancy rated it it was ok. It's still the same Stephen King writing but I am very disappointed to find out this isn't a continuation of the first Under the Dome, but rather the second half of the original book.
At least the publishers could mark that on the cover of the book. I loved the book the first time I read it, and it took me a while to realize that everything sounded familiar as I was reading this version. Ansiedad, incertidumbre, temor, bronca, tristeza y rabia son alguna de los sensaciones que te hace sentir la historia a medida que vas avanzando. En pocas palabras, el libro es un viaje emocionante!.
Gracias Stephen King por otra apasionante obra. Jul 10, Cory rated it it was ok. I was hoping the dome was going to be a supernatural punishment for Big Jim's actions, and the town a sacrificial example May 13, Paul Sposite rated it it was amazing.
I am pissed, I thought this was a new book, but it's nothing but the hard cover book split into 2 parts My bad Mar 24, Somago rated it it was amazing. Aug 21, Ipeh Alena rated it really liked it Shelves: Di buku ini, kasus menjadi semakin bertambah. Karena Barbie aka Barbara, mendapat tuduhan bahwa dia membunuh beberapa orang. Tidak ada yang bisa membuktikan bahwa dialah pembunuhnya. Namun, tentu saja si pembunuh asli tengah melimpahkan kesalahannya pada Barbie karena banyak penduduk yang tidak percaya pada Barbie.
Meski sekali lagi, mereka tidak dapat membuktikannya. Bahkan Rose, seorang wanita yang menjadi bos Barbie selama bertahun-tahun, dia tahu bahwa Barbie tidak mungkin melakukan hal itu. Belum lagi Big Jim yang memiliki kuasa pada wilayah Chester's Mill ini yang sungguh memuakkan, dia melakukan beberapa pencurian propane demi menghidupkan generator kantor walikota. Tidak mau memedulikan warganya, seperti biasa, dia memang pejabat korup. Namun, dalam buku ini, kita sebagai pembaca tidak memiliki kuasa apapun untuk menghakimi apalagi menghukumnya.
Kita hanya dibiarkan pasrah, bagaimana tokoh lain berusaha untuk melepaskan diri dari jeratan kekuasan tersebut, juga pasrah dengan keputusan yang ada. Sungguh, memang rasanya melelahkan sekali karena sepanjang membaca novel ini, saya berkali-kali merasa emosi jiwa dan raga akibat tidak bisa membuat Big Jim dan antek-anteknya segera mati saja. Atau tertelah Kubah, gitu. Entah kenapa justru pihak National Guard juga memang mengulur-ulur usaha mereka untuk menolong.
Seolah warga Chester's Mill sedang berada di lokasi Gladiator, siapa yang mampu bertahan hidup, dialah pemenangnya. Gila memang! Blog Review: Pero bueno, claramente no era el mejor contexto para sobrevivir. De oro. Simplemente de oro. Hablemos de Linda, de Joe, incluso de Sam Este libro fue un cofre de personajes de oro. Nov 15, Christopher Selmek rated it really liked it.He is engaged to Angie McCain and never suspects that Junior could have killed her.
Melanti The publisher split the full novel into 2 volumes for the paperback release. Little Girl Gone. The Lost. I mentioned two potential projects while I was on the road, one a new Mid-World book not directly about Roland Deschain , but yes, he and his friend Cuthbert are in it, hunting a skin-man, which are what werewolves are called in that lost kingdom and a sequel to The Shining called Doctor Sleep.
