Book Description

What if you knew the exact date and time the world will end, what would you do?

Sam Tucker was faced with that dilemma when he began getting visions of the Earth's demise. Luckily for him, he was able to save his family and as many people as he could before the tragic event occurred, and he did so with the help of unknown visitors. With Earth now destroyed, Sam, his family, and thousands of other lucky survivors must live the rest of their lives on a faraway planet in a Dome that simulates life on Earth. But Sam's mind can't seem to rest as a few questions arise. Why did the aliens save them? How did they know about Earth's sure fate? And exactly what are they hiding?

Emma Tucker begged for an escape from her boring life but never in a million years did she think it would come at the destruction of Earth. Living on a new planet and finding it difficult to get rid of her rebellious habits, Emma finds herself making friends with a member of the alien race and it soon develops into an unexplainable love; a love that is more dangerous than she could ever imagine. While her father is searching for his own truths, she has no idea that she is stumbling on a truth of her own.

Told from the point of view of both Sam and Emma, author Nova Sparks takes readers on a journey to discover love, fate, faith, truth, and the mystery of the DOME!

4.0 out of 5 stars Book Snob Recommends May 17, 2011
By Pavarti
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book as a pdf file after Nova Sparks sent out a general request for reviews. She did not ask me specifically and I volunteered. No promise of a positive review was made, only an honest one.

the DOME is a rare find. I have been hunting for quality Sci-Fi for so long, it's hard to find anything that really pulls in the cultural aspect of alien races. I don't think I've read anything where the alien culture and characters were so thoroughly thought through and described since Lilith's Brood. Plus, the fact that Nova Sparks is a woman... This is not only rare but takes an incredible amount of talent to pull off. For the most part Sparks pulls this off with flying colors.

I want to begin by discussing the plot alone. The story line of the DOME is incredible. Told from the alternating points of view of Sam and Emma Tucker we are given a before, during, after and finally the unimaginable consequence of the end of the world. Layers upon layers of mystery, interpersonal interactions, romance and intrigue flow so easily together that the world of the DOME becomes real on the page.

the DOME Sam is Emma's father (this gives us a great relationship to explore from 2 different POVs plus the opportunity to experience the story from two different age perspectives - Go Nova!) Sam receives advance warning of the end of the world and does his best to save as many people as he can. Sam's group and others from around the world are taken to a distant planet (Syri) where they live in an enclosure which protects them from the elements and predators of their new home. During their time on Syri we glimpse that perhaps the Syrions are not as altruistic as they seem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved the story. Thanks Nova March 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read all of the previous reviews so I understood that some editing was needed. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, well with Sam, his refusal to talk about what he was learning with his wife and daughter seemed strange to me. It didn't quite fit with his character. That could be me! I just thought, in order to protect them he seemed like the kind of guy who would tell them. It fit perfectly with Emma because she's a teenager. I also agree with others about the sex scene with Sam and Kris. It didn't work for me. Fun to read and I'll be reading the others too. Thanks again Nova.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dome September 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nova Sparks worked her talents brilliantly to keep her Audience engaged and guessing. I very much enjoyed not only the content but professional editing of this read which, when poorly done, can be a fatal distraction from the best of writing. Kudos Nova Sparks! I will definitely be reading on to the conclusion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor writing September 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wish I could give this book a 2 and a half rating as its not quite a three. It's also isn't quite as bad as a 2. I like the story. It was interesting. However, I think the writing is very poor. The book needs some serious editing. The sentence structure is poor. Sentences seemed choppy. The book did not flow. For me, this got in the way of the story. I sincerely hope that editing for the next book improves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading October 15, 2013
By Me
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm looking forward to the sequel, good book. The only things I didn't like are : the dad's a jerk (but there's character growth so he's bearable) and the romance part of it is the instant love type that lacks real depth. That being said the mystery of the dome is an intriguing one and the authors writing style was easy to read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Final score a Mystery February 8, 2014
By Jeanine
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's a mystery at the heart of this story, and unfortunately no real clues to its eventual solution in this first book of a trilogy. I would possibly consider bumping up the score if the outcome turned out to be ingenious, but from what I've read so far I doubt that will happen.

This book does have some interesting ideas, such as the hero learning of the end of the world in a dream and tricking his friends into joining him at the one place he hopes they'll be safe. But the execution is poor. For instance, once he gets the group of friends to "safety" we never hear about them again. Also of the thousands of people brought to the dome only he and one or two others seem even remotely concerned about the aliens' motives.

There's also a love story. I use the term loosely as neither one of the characters seem to know what love is. But when they get near each other they feel hot, and that must be close enough.

In sum humans act stupid because they apparently are. Aliens act stupid for reasons that remain murky.
