For some unknown reason, even though I haven't read the book beyond the first chapter, Norman makes me think of Andrew Dice Clay, a comedian who happens to be known for his raunchy, sexist standup and volatile temper. I'm tempted to read his dialogue with Dice's thick Brooklyn accent, now.
...in his misogyny yes, not his dialect...

Norman feels like a distant relation of Beverley Marsh's husband, Tom (as in It).
Both characters make me wish I could walk again, so I could give them the kicking they richly deserve.
Still, you can do a lot of damage with (almost) the perfect manual wheelchair and good upper-body strength. . .:angry_002:
How scary is that?
Fictional characters so precisely portrayed that the reader goes Defcon 1?:a11:
