Waiting on Wednesday: Under the Dome

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Under the Dome by Stephen King

Publisher/Publication Date: Simon & Schuster, November 10, 2009

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 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 select-woman, 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. (Amazon)

Stephen King has been one of my favorite authors since I was about 14! I am always excited when he comes out with a new book!

I have been King's fan since my early teenage years as well and also cannot wait for his new book. I even put a countdown widget on my blog a while back, how geeky is that?!
