In Stephen King's mesmerizing new masterpiece - his biggest, most riveting novel since The Stand - a Maine town and its inhabitants are isolated from the world by an invisible, impenetrable dome. Celebrated storyteller Stephen King returns to his roots in this tour de force featuring more than 100 characters - some heroic, some diabolical - and a supernatural element as baffling and chilling as any he's ever conjured.

Flowed well. Good character description. Set the scene so you could imagine the growing panic & frustration. Made the reader really care about the various characters. Suspenseful in places. Great book & beautifully narrated.

Sally Field has an infectious charm that has captivated audiences for more than five decades, beginning with her first television role at the age of 17. From Gidget’s sweet-faced ‘girl next door' to the dazzling complexity of Sybil to the Academy Award-winning ferocity and depth of her role in Norma Rae and Mary Todd Lincoln, Field has stunned audiences time and time again with her artistic range and emotional acuity. Yet there is one character who always remained hidden: the shy and anxious little girl within.

My whole life I loved Sally Field. From Gidget to the flying nun, Smokey & the Bandit to the much loved Mama from Forrest Gump. I seen every one of her movies & shows & always had an image of what she was like. But reading her books, her words & her deep honesty exposing her vulnerability has shown me how truly incredible an actor she is. I always thought she must have a charmed life. Not so. I now have a much deeper admiration & respect for her. Her honesty in relaying her pain of childhood & her insecurity of all the feelings & questions she posed to herself. I feel it was & is an honour to have listened to her recount her life’s journey, admit her failings, as human as they are in all their raw stages. Sally Field is an incredible woman & I’m only sorry the book finished. Thank you Ms Field for sharing your story.

Incredible & insightful. You literally go on a journey of self awareness with Anne. Her description of her time in the annexe & the thoughts and feelings she wrote of could have been by any teenager through the decades. She describes her feelings on different subjects & what struck me was how similar some of my own thoughts were as a 14 year old some 35 years later. But Anne was an incredibly special person. Her beautiful spirit & ability to strive to be positive in the most horrific of times. Her poignant desire to write something one day that would change the world and have people understand that hate & prejudice are emotions to leave behind & reject. What might she have done had she lived? We will never know but what she did in death reminds us NEVER FORGET NEVER AGAIN
