It was definitely a progression, which SK wrote very well. I couldn't get the movie out of my head, though - the entire time I was reading the story. I think no bounce no play was the one who felt that way too.
I read it a little while ago, so it is not fresh in my mind but I have only see a wee snippet of the movie on TV, so I haven't been ruined for life!

Actually now that I think about it, maybe I am not qualified to post here - sorry - the dog ate my homework! :hitch::m_brick:

It's okay, Neesy! I really appreciate the support. I'm desperately trying to keep the Discussion Group afloat until we hear from our beloved VultureLvr45 ! :smile:

Hope she is alright - sometimes these family things pop up rather unexpectedly.

(Andy went back up North so I have more free time now but I still did not get a chance to reread this particular story).
What's on for next Friday?

Edit: actually the taxi took him to the airport at 8 a.m. this morning!

The Library Policeman for next week. Actually I thought maybe we should split this story into two weeks of discussion, since it's almost 200 pages long. I was thinking the first ten chapters for next week - unless we hear from VL and she wants to do something different.

Sorry for not being there but i was, alas, asleep. Anyway... I have some problem with this story. To me it echoes to much of The Dark Half. Basically the same story but another twist. He writes well as usual but i never feel any real connection to Mort. And without that you kind of struggle. Not that i have to like him but i need some kind of connection. I thought the Langolliers was far superior.

Well, we were supposed to discuss Secret Window, Secret Garden tonight. Maybe we should hold off on progressing further into the book until everyone interested gets caught up - thoughts??

So sorry I have been absent for the last few. Too many outside commitments intruding into my SKMB time. As Neesy and Kurben have said, you have done a great job being the hostess! I do hope we hear from VL soon. I am so worried about her and her family. :down:

((hugs)) to all my fellow book discussion group folks!
