That is the most creepy picture but appearances can be deceiving. We've been talking about that in my literature class because we are reading Macbeth. There is a huge discretion between appearance and reality but that's in all Shakespeare plays especially the tragedies.JD wouldn't be friends with hi...

I get it now. It was the butler referring to Sebastien because he wasn't really sincere in giving him a gift so instead of merry christmas he said merry fraud.

I thought that was pretty funny that they dressed the baby in a kangaroo suit but it's also kind of mean too in a way.

Such good answers. I think it's love conquers all. It can be blind too because it doesn't discriminate. Anyone can fall in love.

In my humble opinion, Endora, Linda B and Bix, you aren’t being too hard on poor Sebastian. He obviously thinks he is above the “common people”. He seems to think he’s God’s gift to the world (so I guess that would be somewhat of a Christ) and doesn’t have to do anything to earn the respect of othe...

I think he fears conformity and how he would fit into society. I don't blame him at all because I am the same way. I have been through many things where people have tried to get me to conform whether its cutting my long hair or being extremely thin I have experienced a lot of what he fears. Also pee...

I agree. He was afraid of failure just like Macbeth is because once he finds out he's going to be King he doesn't work for it. He just kills off everyone that is in his way instead of working towards it like Sebastien wouldn't work hard for anything he wanted. They sort of expected everything to be ...

Well, I'm probably giving S more credit than he deserves, but yes, I do think love was important to him. There are places in the book where you get glimpses of S's true character (the passage describing his arrival at Trinity being one of them), and he seems to have low self-esteem, to be self-cons...

I'm not sure any of the passages were favorites, but I did like a couple of them. This one on page 85, when Sebastian was going to visit Chris, is just nice. There was so much abruptness in the writing that this one stood out for me as a gentle, easy passage. This city of al these changeling street...

I'm not really sure how they are going to make this book into a movie. It was very confusing as far as the writing style and the age thing might be a problem too but Johnny can do it!

The story between O'Keefe and Dangerfield put me in mind of Withnail and I. It was as if O"Keefe recognized and truly wanted to get out of the trap, but he certainly wasn't prepared to do so in any productive way. True Lumi, I agree that O'Keefe was making a conscious effort to escape but couldn't ...

Hmm...Let's see. Here are my opinions: 1. Marion: She was an idiot who smartened up because she was looking out for her child. I am glad she smartened up but then she got dumb again because she gave him her address. 2. Mary: was an idiot who just didn't want to be alone. She also was young and was j...

I think it's a popular book because we are all hung up on sex and we are curious in society about sex so we read this book to indulge our fantasies. It's one of those forbidden books that we don't let anyone know that we are reading because we are afraid of what people would think of us. So it's rea...

I agree with Liz that he is absorbing Kenneth. He's just using him as a shoulder to cry on. He's reaching out for help from him.
