The town of Chester's Mill, Maine, is suddenly covered by a dome, an invisible force field on a normal, autumn day.

Is the dome truly the largest threat facing the town?

On May 31 2011, West of Eden Books said:
  "Stephen King fans will love this book. The size, over a thousand pages, won't daunt anyone who read "The Stand" or "It". It's King at his best; a Maine town full of interesting characters, both good and bad; a fight between evil and good; tales of corruption and insanity.The premise is simple- what happens if a small town is suddenly submerged under an impregnable dome? The slow realization of what it means as the townspeople struggle for supplies, power and ultimately for air, makes for a great read. The interaction of the characters is what makes it a great King book."
