    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.

    The first chapter put me off from reading it for long time. I'm well aware of Norman's depravity. He's probably one of the worst human monsters Steve's come up with.

    I saw him as a fedora wearing thug. Kinda like a 50's private eye or police detective, but psycho and mean underneath.

    I can still see how I pictured him: bald, thick-necked, wearing a T-shirt and a permanent scowl.

    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:
