Great story to get immersed in. If anyone has seen Under the Dome, (a USA tv series,) it is the same type of thing, but as I read the paper books quite a few years ago, I presume this is most likely to be the original version and also far far better than the American version.
James Follet goes into reasonable depth to get you thinking how a small society, basically has to adapt to life without too many modern devices and how the political, judicial and financial systems are put in place in order to survive an unknown period of isolation from the rest of the world.
Plenty of science fiction, but all in all I found it entertaining and easy to become engrossed into the life of his characters. Personalities are explored here and scruples too, religion, witchcraft and almost anything else is dealt with at some point.
If you read this book and enjoy it, then you will certainly be buying the other 2 to complete the trilogy.
