READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ Under the Dome READ & DOWNLOAD Under the Dome 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. Completely out of the blue a clear dome appears over the town of Chester s Mill in Maine of course A plane crashes into it A groundhog is sliced in half A woman gardening in her yard has a hand sheared off How did this thing get there Who or what is responsible How can it be removed This is not the Stephen King I am used to I have been a fan since the beginning and have read the vast majority although not all of King s books For me Under the Dome kicks it up a notch Sure there is supernatural creepiness and an explanation that is well disappointing But this is Stephen King Duh uh If you read the guy for his wonderful denouement explanations you probably shouldn t bother What makes King so successful is that he writes great characters draws you in and keeps you there once he has you while scaring the bejesus out of you often enough to matter He kept me under his dome for all 1072 pages The addition to his usual toolkit this time is his expansion to the political If I m going to spend a year writing a single draft of a book it should be about something from a Barnes Noble interview Which of course begs a uestion about the value of spending say half a year What is the duration of labor at which one must cross over from pure entertainment to somethingI ve always been a political novelist and those things have always interested me Firestarter is a political novel The Dead Zone is a political novel There s that scene in The Dead Zone where Johnny Smith sees Greg Stillson in the future starting a nuclear war Around my house we kinda laugh when Sarah Palin comes on TV and we say That s Greg Stillson as a woman More scary than funny to me Well maybe Dome is not so out of the way for KingBut while political commentary has definitely found its way into King s books there are few who consider him to be a political author His other concerns usually take precedence In Under the Dome he continues a lifelong fascination with small town life Most of his people have significant secrets And we get to see their character from how they cope with the stress they experience The book took a long time to reach its final form I started it in 1976 got about 75 pages into it and then I saw what the scope of the thing was going to be how many technological issues it raised and I buckled I m not a sci fi writer I don t know a lot about technology so I thought I d try again set it in an apartment building and then I wouldn t have to deal with what the weather would be like under a dome But I didn t like any of the characters so I put it away He revisited the story in the 1980s Renamed The Cannibals it still had to do with people isolated in an apartment building And still avoided having to cope with the technical demands of having the story set under a dome The inspiration for the reduction in venue was a stay in a less than appealing area of suburban Pittsburgh during the filming of Creepshow He wrote almost five hundred pages this time but was still unable to figure out all that he needed to figure out It was not until the new millennium that the manuscript turned up again This time he was able to garner the expertise needed to get past his technical roadblocks He returned to the dome notion and wrote up a stormWhat would people do if stuck together whether under a dome or in an apartment building Perhaps a less tropical version of William Golding s classic with adults gone wild instead of kids and without the beach Let s just say that things do not go well and dark forces human ones come to the fore His boogey man this time is personified by that most iconic totem of dishonesty a used car salesman named Big Jim Rennie Big Jim may be the Second Selectman in the town of Chester s Mill but he is the real power in town First Selectman Andy Sanders is pretty much a smiling charming non entity content to do whatever Big Jim wants And the third Selectman is a drug addicted woman who is reliant on Big Jim and Andy for her supplies If you might think Big Jim is a stand in for a certain vice president you would be right All the way to his uestionable ticker It might be a stretch to see in Rennie s son Junior a stand in for Cheney s activist progeny but maybe not If you think Andy might be a stand in for Dubya right again complete with an addiction issue King sees Bush and Andy not so much as evil as weak and the portrayal here reflects that Rennie seemed pretty evil to me complete with his insanely hypocritical refusal to use or tolerate profanity while behaving as profanely as possible stealing critical supplies from the hospital among other places to support his meth lab one of the largest in the country He tells himself he is doing God s will I enjoyed taking the Bush Cheney dynamic and shrinking it to the small town level he said The last administration interested me because of the aura of fundamentalist religion that surrounded it and the rather amazing incompetency of those top two guys I thought there was something blackly humorous in it So in a sense Under the Dome is an apocalyptic version of The Peter Principle Expanding on his CheneyBush analogy he goes through a list of items one can associate not only with that dynamic duo but with others throughout history who have used crisis as a way to consolidate power fomenting discord by sponsoring provocative and secretive actions think Reichstag fire as a way to cast blame on enemies raising a private army whether in 1930s Germany or contemporary Blackwater sorry Xe planning to massacre one s opponents back to the funny moustache guy again spying on one s own citizens see Patriot Act controlling or at least monitoring communications ditto attempting to destroy opposing media and so on No one actually says Kill the Pig but if asked to some

that sounds incongruous here Dale Barbara known as Barbie is an ex military wanderer last employed at the local diner someone who does all he can to avoid conflict but like a certain Corleone keeps

READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ Under the Dome READ & DOWNLOAD Under the Dome 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 awayDale Barbara Ira 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 th. Here s a nightmare scenario A mysterious disaster occurs The area is completely cut off from any outside help Resources are limited People are confused and scared And Dick Cheney is in chargeThat terrifying idea is what makes Under the Dome one of the best books King has doneChester s Mill Maine is a typical Stephen King small town filled with people both good and criminally insane One fall day a force field crashes down around the area causing a fair amount of carnage and disaster The Dome is uickly found to be impenetrable and while the townspeople can communicate with the outside world via cell phones or wireless internet they re essentially on their own If the situation wasn t bad enough the town is now in the hands of Big Jim RennieForget about Randall Flagg or Annie Wilkes or the Crimson King or Pennywise the Clown Big Jim a used car salesman and town selectman is King s scariest villain ever Why Because America lived through a Big Jim like reign after 911 and it s all too easy to picture how much worse it could have gotten while reading this bookKing isn t very subtle in the allegory here Chester s Mill is the stand in for America and Big Jim is obviously based on Cheney a corrupt political weasel hiding behind the dim witted first selectman of the town as a front to cover up his shenanigans He doesn t drink or smoke and talks about his love for Jesus but Big Jim is utterly ruthless about destroying his enemies And to Big Jim just disagreeing with him makes you an enemyBig Jim has spent years refusing to spend money on needed town improvements while involved in all kinds of criminal enterprises While he demands total power and authority he s actually completely incompetent at leadership except for placing blame and manipulating people When the Dome comes down his first concern is covering up his criminal activity but he uickly realizes that with the outside world at bay he can create his own little dictatorship inside the bubble And of course he s doing it for the good of the town A small group of people realize what Rennie is doing and try to stop him but they vastly overestimate what the threat of eventual punishment from the outside will do They just can t believe that anyone would actually go as far as Big Jim is prepared to do and while the federal government tries in vain to assert its authority Big Jim is all too happy to thumb his nose at them and continue to consolidate power even as the air inside the Dome is getting awfully staleKing s always been terrific at depicting the strengths and weaknesses of a small town in books like Salem s Lot or Needful Things but this is something different He claims that he s had the idea for this book since the mid 70s but never completed it because the science of what would happen within the Dome was beyond him Delay may have been a blessing I don t think this would have been the same book if it wasn t for the BushCheney administration after 911It s being routinely pointed out in various reviews that the plot here is eerily similar to The Simpson s Movie where the government puts a giant dome over polluted Springfield I ve read an interview where King claims that he had no idea about this until the book was written and someone told him I m going to cry bullshit on that He writes a column about pop culture for Entertainment Weekly and has played himself on the show I find it really hard to believe that he somehow missed The Simpson s Movie having a giant dome in it It s very weird that none of the people within the Dome ever mention the movie since King has never been shy about incorporating pop culture references beforeBut that s nitpicking and doesn t change the fact that this story and Big Jim scared the crap out of me I grew up in a small town and I could easily think of some of the locals who would have tried to take over after a crisis if left unchecked and some of them probably would have been worse than Big Jim and his crowd of hand picked bullies Although this is a huge book and King has been bad about over writing in the past this one flies by and I actually found myself wanting a little detail about some of the people since many of them don t get much of a wrap up I was a shade disappointed in the eventual explanation to the cause of the Dome and how it is resolved but overall this is going to end up being one of my favorite Stephen King books Bead Crochet Jewelry: An Inspired Journey Through 27 Designs (Knit Crochet) just disagreeing with him makes you an enemyBig Jim has spent years refusing to spend money
