Under the Dome
1072 pages; Scribner
As if life in small-town America weren't tough enough, an invisible, impermeable (literally bombproof) sky-high dome suddenly descends on quiet Chester's Mill, Maine. No one can get out or in, and vermin—of the human variety—soon wreak more havoc than whoever (or whatever) has dropped this nightmare on the unsuspecting burg. Trust Stephen King to create more hellish scenarios, in the 1,072 pages of Under the Dome, than you could ever imagine, yet still have you wanting more.
