Ok. I try to fit in that story in my reading scheme. Tell if you hear from Vulture will you? Hoping she is OK!
The Discussion Group meets every Friday night at 8:30 p.m. (Central). We discussed The Langoliers already (but please feel free to add your comments to this thread!). We discussed Secret Window, Secret Garden last week and tonight. We will be discussing the first ten chapters of The Library Policeman in Four Past Midnight next Friday night. If you have the opportunity, please join us!just went thru the 4 pages of this thread and couldn't find the discussion. obviously im missing something. how do I get on the discussion and how does it work. is it all typing or is it verbal and do I have a link or something. thanks
That's right. If you have a look through this area on Friday, you will no doubt see a new thread go up (it will include Friday's date--the 20th) and you can join in on the discussion there.so what do I do. on Friday just come on here and find the forum post and read peoples entries and post mine as is goes?
...let me see if I can help....General Patton was a hard nosed, VERY demanding and sometimes abusive military officer-that was never satisfied with anything but total and complete annihilation of his enemies....which when applied to an executive of BOA and as a father-couldn't have been enjoyable for subordinates or his family....The line talks about the death of Craigs father, he did not really like him and he was glad he died, but I still do not understand what does that particular line mean. It would be cool if I could ask Stephen myself, because no one seems to know the answer.
Here it is:
"Craig was nine years old when his father died of a heart attack. He was actually sort of relieved that the Bank of America's answer to General Patton was gone".
I think that "Bank of America's answer to General Patton" refers to his dead father, but I do not understand the meaning of it.
Thank you so very much, now I understand what Stephen meant by that....let me see if I can help....General Patton was a hard nosed, VERY demanding and sometimes abusive military officer-that was never satisfied with anything but total and complete annihilation of his enemies....which when applied to an executive of BOA and as a father-couldn't have been enjoyable for subordinates or his family....
Welcome! Introduce yourself in the Newbie Thread of this board so more members can welcome you.Hey there guys, I am new to this Forum, but I have been reading Stephens work for years now. I just have a quick question... Been reading Langoliers lately and there is this line there: He was actually sort of relieved that the Bank of Americas answer to General Patton was gone.
I could not understand that line. Google also does not show anything about the connection between Bank of America and General Patton. Could you tell me what does Stephen mean there?
