Re: Glass Books Question #3 ~ The Times

[font_comic:11spwhxy]I have to agree the victorian setting is perfect for the novel. It makes it more exciting and more probable that it could be kept secret. In our time, communication is so rapid on a global basis it would have been more difficult to hide a conspiracy of this size and less interes...

Re: Glass Books #2 ~ Setting?

My guess would be he left it to our imaginations so no one would go looking for the precious blue clay???? :grin: The more likely reason would be he could set up the city and its environs in any manner he wanted and did not have to stay within in any boundaries. That said, I had forgotten that no sp...

Re: Meet the Creator of Glass Books

Did I hear this correctly? In the audio interview the interviewer addresses Mr Dahlquist as "Sir Gordon"? Why would he call him Sir Gordon? Maybe I'm missing the point because I'm not a native speaker. :blush: :netherlands: I went back and listened to this again,(several times, just the b...

Re: Glass Books Question #1 ~ A Departure

The selections that we have chosen (or I guess I should say Johnny has chosen) have all been interesting and ones that I would not normally choose on my own. And I have to say that all but a couple of them have been enjoyable reads. I agree,there are several books we have read that I probably never...

Re: Glass Books Question #1

I enjoyed this book and found it an easy read but I normally read a fair amount of science fiction, so it wasn't really a change for me.

Re: AMF Question #24 ~ Does evil begin innocently?

I agree that he is speaking of his affair, maybe even some later ones considering when he wrote this book. I think maybe some evil starts from an innocence but when you lie instead of come clean and face the truth, then you are choosing to become part of the evil. He does seem to feel more guilty a...

Re: AMF Question #24 ~ Does evil begin innocently?

I believe he was speaking of his own life, in this book it referred to his affair with Pauline. He didn't seem to realize how well off he was with Hadley until he lost her. In his life after AMF it could easily refer to his other affairs, the first lie sets off the chain of events and you're always ...

Re: A Moveable Feast Question #4 ~ Writers and Painters

pg. 13 – “I was learning from the painting of Cezanne that made writing simple true sentences far from enough to make the stories have the dimensions that I was trying to put in them. I was learning very much from him but I was not articulate enough to explain it to anyone.” To me, Hemingway is say...

Re: AMF Question #5 ~ Sharpened and Clearer

I think he meant that when he was hungry, he concentrated fully on the artwork so he would not think about his hunger. (Evidently it helped that there were no restaurants, bakeries, etc. in the area with their wonderful aromas) I agree with what has been said about deprivation sharpening the senses....

Re: A Moveable Feast Question #1 ~ The Preface

I think he is saying that he choose to write only selected parts of what happened, not everything, and if you as the reader find that unacceptable (as it is not the whole picture) feel free to view it as fiction, but you may have some questions answered.

I agree with Parlez, my picture of the musketeers was always as swordsman, not armed with muskets. Do you think I may have been influenced by the movies. :lol:
Thanks for the tidbit, DitHoT!

She was quite a character. It's interesting that they were able to tamper with photos that early on. :-O

That's a lot of information to digest ;-) . It's amazing how interrelated everything is, you have to love those early "maps".
Thanks, DITHOT!
