Coming Soon: Under the Dome by Stephen King

Who doesn't love Stephen King...he's Stephen King for cryin' out loud! And, I just discovered he has a new novel coming out in November. Just in time for the holidays, (any family reading this...hint..hint..) on November 10th.

From Fantastic Fiction:

Under the Dome

On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mills, 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 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 selectwoman, 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.

With some of the most spectacularly sinister characters King has ever imagined and a driving plot, Under the Dome is Stephen King at his epic best. This book will thrill every reader who's ever loved a novel by King.

Doesn't this sound terrific? The Stand is one of my all time favorite books and Under the Dome sounds almost "Stand-ish" in it's terrific-ness? I'm looking forward to this book!!

I can't wait for this book. I found out about this a couple of weeks back while browsing his website. Will definitely be buying it when it's released :)

Ah, mark me down as one who doesn't love Stephen King. Not even "like". Sorry.

This looks good! Sometimes I love Stephen King, sometimes not -- for me, the books vary widely in quality.

It sounds just like The Simpson's Movie.
