This is the second time I have read this book. The first time I read it, I wrote the following:

"I've always been a big fan of Stephen King and this is definitely one of his better novels. In fact, Under The Dome is now my favourite Stephen King Novel (it used to be The Stand). The characters are extremely believable, as is the premise. I particularly liked the comparison between Chester's Mill and ant farms. In addition to being a good read, this book also makes a frightening statement about the nature of people. Namely, that scared people are all too willing to give up their rights and behave in dreadful ways in order to feel safe; and how, when people are frightened by something they can't explain, they go looking for scapegoats. Sadly, these are behaviours we are seeing all around us today, not helped (as in the book) by our leaders' willingness to exploit our fears. Overall, this is a highly recommended read!"

I have no reason to change my opinion, except to say that this book is even better the second time around. As with other Stephen King novels, each reading allows the discover of some new subtlety, allowing multiple readings to be as enjoyable as the first time around. This is an awesome book that I would recommend to any fan of the genre.

Under The Dome a novel by Stephen King. The community of Chesters Mill is sealed from the rest of the world, under an invisible dome force field. The deadly dome has severed everything at its impenetrable boundaries. Time is running out for the citizens trapped within the horror of the force field with their own interactions. Frightened people become more intense as they are provoked without reason. Characters thinking magnifies at times, one feeding on the frenzy of the other. Each chapter is swiftly paced and grips the reader’s attention advancing the thrilling plot. Barbie a war veteran has horror turned on him and helps others as he can. Caught in the terrors of the dome, many aspire daily to betterment through survival in hope of escape. No one knows why the dome is there or exactly what it is. Their fear and anxiety become what they have to live for. It may be easy to see their circle of events, in many lives reflected outside of this book.
