Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Fun read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Long but worth it A mysterious invisible barrier suddenly appears one day surrounding a small town in Maine, cutting it off from the outside world. This creates unimaginable fear and chaos that leaves many questions unanswered. A power struggle inevitably ensues between the town bullies and religious zealots, while a handful of reasonable characters try to prepare for the consequences certain to come from living with limited vital resources. Moreover, bodies are beginning to pile up at an alarming rate and where are the town’s propane supplies disappearing to? Pretty much classic Stephen King; good story, entertaining but just a little too drawn out. Well narrated. Would recommend it to anyone who doesn’t mind the 31 hour investment this audiobook requires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The King has returned! King has finally come out of hiding with this novel and has unleashed his gift in full force. Whenever I recommend this book to people, the first reaction is its size. Yes, a large read can be daunting but not this one! Within the opening lines, you are hooked, demanding to know what is going to happen next and Mr. King does not disappoint. His style of getting under the readers skin, knowing what fears to play on and great twists takes you on a ride that leaves you as breathless as the characters are in the final pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to being a Stephen King fan! I lost interest in Stephen King books many, many years ago. I always found he was over descriptive and everything ended up having to do with aliens. But after reading a synopsis on this book, I was intrigued and decided to give King another change. And I was glad I did. This book was so much fun and I didn't want to put it down. I don't say that about every book like a lot of people, but at almost 1100 pages, I just didn't want it to end. Absolutely recommended!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not your grandma's Stephen King Plenty of solid characters that weren't just there to support the plot ... plenty of intrigue ... and mystery ... the stephen king kind of mystery. Also - this one was very ... Human ... the sick type of human that only stephen King can make you acknowledge exists in the real world. the profanity was hilarious! One might even say it was gratuitous ... but i think it's exactly what real people who say in the situation. All in all ... a great read! But I won't recommend it to my grandma.

About the Author

Stephen King was born in Portland, Maine, on September 21, 1947. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in English from the University of Maine at Orono in 1970, he became a teacher. His spare time was spent writing short stories and novels. King's first novel would never have been published if not for his wife. She removed the first few chapters from the garbage after King had thrown them away in frustration. Three months later, he received a $2,500 advance from Doubleday Publishing for the book that went on to sell a modest 13,000 hardcover copies. That book, Carrie, was about a girl with telekinetic powers who is tormented by bullies at school. She uses her power, in turn, to torment and eventually destroy her mean-spirited classmates. When United Artists released the film version in 1976, it was a critical and commercial success. The paperback version of the book, released after the movie, went on to sell more than two-and-a-half million copies. Many of King's other horror novels have been adapted into movies, including The Shining, Firestarter, Pet Semetary, Cujo, Misery, The Stand, and The Tommyknockers. Under the pseudonym Richard Bachman, King has written the books The Running Man, The Regulators, Thinner, The Long Walk, Roadwork, and Rage. King is one of the world's most successful writers, with more than 100 million copies of his works in print. Many of his books have been translated into foreign languages, and he writes new books at a rate of about one per year.
