"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. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when -- or if -- it will go away."
That is how Stephen King's new book, Under the Dome, is described on his web site. What would it be like to be so abruptly cut off from your country and culture? How do people behave when they live in isolation from society? And who or what is behind the creation of this supernatural prison?
