    see, problem is that this small review was not written for you. So the fact that I have lost your interest does not bother me one little bit as your interest is of no interest to me:) Have a good day.

    please, don't send me to Derry. I will die of bore there. IT was one of the most boring novels of SK for me.

    How about we all take a breath and just say that we agree to disagree on this one.

    Die of boars in Derry? That's scary. :distress: Missed that part.

    I think it was easier to be killed by wild boars on that island in Lord Of The Flies.

    I truly do appreciate the support of Steve, but it's not as much fun for the mods trying to keep the peace if it gets personal. :smile2:

    I behaved myself. :angel:

    Even though I could see all the arrogance and condescending insults in his posts, I knew it was a waste of my time to go after him (and others were already doing a better job than I would). :D

    Anyway, I know I do not have any degree in language or Literature, and I can barely write my own name, so what do I know about good stories? I just read them and like them. :drool:

    I'm a reader who would be quite happy if SK wrote a ton more Talisman type books.

    It's really funny how the moderator works. The comment abt Ukrainian assheads was left without any changes while my hmble reaction to this comment was erased. I believe my opponent fm ohio would have never said a thing like that looking in my eyes, beware of the consequences. But of course, internet allows rudeand cowardish people to do whatever they want.
    Sorry, Ms. Mod, but shame on you.

    I've deleted it now but I'm going to let you know that your other comment was deleted because I thought I'd made it clear that I didn't want any more personal remarks and will continue to do so going forward.

    Trust me, GNTLGNT would have absolutely no problem saying it to your face. You might keep in mind that your comment about internet courtesy runs both ways.

    I'm currently reading BoBD. In the intro to UR, Stephen wrote:

    There was no advance, but there were--and still are--royalties for each sale (or download, if you prefer). I was happy to bank those checks; there's an old saying that the workman is worthy of his hire, and I think it's a true saying. I write for love, but love doesn't pay the bills.

    I believe there is no way to prove it... unless he wants to continue our little discussion in private. So, let's agree to differ on that one.
