This was a complete story with twists and turns. It had a very satisfying ending. Great job again, Mr King!

I really loved the book. First of all, I really liked the concept of the book. It is also a typical Stephen King novel, clearly the novel has much more details than the TV shows. However, I think the book is way too long.

Without knowing anything about this book other than thinking 'The Simpsons Already did it' (lol), I checked out this book and dove it.
It grips you from the start with excellent storytelling and with so many more questions than answers.
The book as a whole is amazing, for as long as it is, however
-SPOILER- (sort of)
The ending is way too quick and almost not satisfying.
The story in itself, however, does make it for it being so exceptional.
I would definitely recommend it.

Despite the length of this book, I stayed hooked the whole time. First time reading a Stephen King book for me, so not sure how it compares to his usual books, but I found the small town atmosphere and the characters to be really well done. Worth a read!

Loved it. Even with terrible the ending and lame explanation of the event is ok, since King does do those things pretty predictably.

Concept was indeed brilliant. Character building was similar to that of King's popular novel "The Stand". I was disappointed in how all that character building seemed to be almost for nothing. The climax seemed rushed and poorly concluded. I would have liked for all the build up to have been been better tied together, thus leaving a more mysterious set of conclusions.

Brilliant concept, action packed, and hard to put down. Surprised at the ending and a bit disappointed

I have been a Stephen King fan for over twenty years. I found that this book was another great read from him. The story focuses on the characters struggles with the isolation and the fear that set in after a dome encases the town. It is interesting to see when situations become serious, how the true natures of individuals come out.

I really don't like this book, because I expected more. Bloody disgusting novel with typical awkward characters. I like King so much, but unfortunately this book turned me off.

Long. Good storytelling and character development, but as is typical with many King novels, the ending is somewhat unsatisfying.
