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.

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:
