Thank you for sharing the letter with all of us Natalie. I am at a loss for words actually. Johnny taking the time to write this during his busy schedule just amazes me. Just proves to me why I admire him so much. He is truly one of a kind.

I'm only a week late here............but whose counting, eh? I read everybody's post and got thoroughly confused. There are too many things to get into a limit of 5 posts per category. But then again, these are just GUIDELINES, right? Thank you for the pictures that were posted on this thread.........

Reading those last lines brought me back in time to my own childhood. I could feel how I felt then. Endless possiblities and innocence.

Some passages I read and just don't have an opinion about. I don't know if I agree with him or not. It does add an element of excitement to life to see if you can get away with something. You have to weigh the consequences in each situation though.

Re: Good Omens Question #20 - The Ineffable Plan

Significance to the story....... well, actually, it wasn't significant to the story because supposedly things got changed from the original infellable plan by miscellaneous mistakes...........unless, of course, that was the ineffable plan to begin with. I think that may be the point. :eyebrow: Awww...

My first thought when I read this passage was it is about free will and possibilities. Adam is exerting his free will to ignore what is "supposed" to be and alter the expected outcome. He is also saying that man has unlimited possibilities and potential due to his free will and his imagin...

Re: Good Omens Question #20 - The Ineffable Plan

A definition/commentary on the Ineffable Plan that I found on the web: Ineffable is basically anything that is unspeakable; unutterable; indescribable. The Ineffable plan is basically God's will. Comment on this description and what you think the significance of the Ineffable Plan is to the story. ...

One of the things that made me laugh wasn't even in the story. It's in the description of the characters.

Crowley (An Angel who did not so much Fall as Saunter Vaguely Downwards)

With that intro into Crowley I knew the book was going to be a fun ride. It described his 'tude' perfectly.

Re: Good Omens Question #16 ~ "Uncivilization"

Pg. 320 (paperback) 322 (hardback). “It has been said that civilization is twenty-four hours and two meals away from barbarism.” Do you agree or disagree? When I read this I started thinking of rolling black outs, computers going down, not being able to cash a check or access your ATM. It could hap...

Re: Good Omens Question #15 ~ You've Got the Power

Can people be relied on to make the right choices? What would you do with Adam’s powers? Relied on? No. The only way bringing back the whale would work is if you went back in time so that all that is supposed to be there is there for the whale. As far as people learning from their mistakes so that ...
