Colorado kid.

Discussion in 'The Colorado Kid' started by Pavlo Baranovskyy, Mar 2, 2016.

  1. In the Soviet Union coins chervonets never went into use. Only banknotes.
    Coins chervonets were made of gold and used only on the external market.It was issued 10 commemorative coin ruble to the Moscow Olympics in 1980, and they also were not used in the domestic market.United States boycotted the Moscow Olympics. If the coin was gold in pocket the Colorado Kid, the author would have focused attention on this.But the author did not.Olympic Silver Coin boycotted the Olympics, would attract the attention of US intelligence.Especially in the pocket of the corpse with the name descendant of the high priests.Rare coin can be traced path.Only one thing - time traveller)), mass-minted coins of 10 rubles USSR in 1991. Sorry for my English.)

    Hi Pavlo, it's been a very long time since I read that book and I don't remember much details. That's sounds like a really good catch.

    Welcome to the Board! You are right about the coin being an anomaly. It was meant to be an easter egg that "there are other worlds than this."

    I have a problem with this novella, because it has deleted my birthday, 24th April. The body is found on the morning of 25th April, ostensibly a Thursday. But the Kid was seen in Colorado at work at 10 am on Wednesday 23rd April. So he actually had all day on the 24th to travel in leisure to New England. Check your copies, folk.

    This was actually my very first King novel. Probably a little odd to start with this one....I know. I have not read any other novels King wrote being at all similar to this one.
    With that being said....I loved it.....and have continued to read much more of his works.
    Oh....and welcome to the board Pavlo and the birthday person.
