Hi,

my name is Miklos Muhi and I am reading at the moment the German edition of the novel Under the Dome.

It was quite shocking, that lots of similarities occurred between the novel and the environment here at the moment (in Hungary):
1. We hat a quite warm end of October -- we had some 24-25 degrees Celsius in the daytime, much too hot for the season)
2. We have a kind of Big Jim Rennie as Prime Minister here. We are not under a dome, of course, but we can see here a similar insanity: new policemen, religious fanatism in the administration, collective stupidity and so on. We even do have quite a problem here with hard drugs, despite a very strict (and inefficient) anti-drug legislation.

I am not finished with the book yet. Till now this was the most dynamic and condensed book I have read from Mr. King (and I read lots of books from him). I like it.
