‘Under the Dome’ (2009)

This sci-fi novel features a small Maine town that was suddenly cut off from the outside world by an invisible barrier, or dome, that drops out of the sky. As it happened, a plane crashed and a cow was cut neatly in two halves. Trapped within its limits, the novel explores how the community continues to function, or fails. The book was made into a TV series, which did well. However, due to its popularity, they decided to carry on from where the book ended, and failed. Goodreads gives it 3.9/5.
