‘King has the ability to capture the imagination from the very first page.’ The Sun
In Stephen King’s mesmerizing new masterpiece – his biggest, most riveting novel since THE STAND – a Maine town and its inhabitants are isolated from the world by an invisible, impenetrable dome.
This Enhanced Edition of UNDER THE DOME includes a sneak peek at Stephen King’s next book, extracts from some classic King novels, the original video trailer for the book along with some audio tasters.
Celebrated storyteller Stephen King returns to his roots in this tour de force featuring more than 100 characters - some heroic, some diabolical - and a supernatural element as baffling and chilling as any he’s ever conjured.
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. Dale Barbara, Iraq vet, teams up with a few intrepid citizens against the town’s corrupt politician. But time, under the dome, is running out....
UNDER THE DOME is King at his epic best and will capture a brand new readership as well as thrilling his existing fans.
