Like the scariest people... it all seems reasonable and 'okay' while you march to hell.
ha ha,.. yeah, remember when yossarian sees everything 'twice' until a dude dies from that then he sees everything once....
Orr is the stable genius in the book... he has a plan, he works the plan, he practices the plan and he executes the plan. He takes Yossarian seriously but says he is crazy because he won't fly with him...
which reminds me, I had a class of kids who HATED school and I told them 'this book cusses' and they were in... our mantra that year was 'no, you're crazy' (okay and one kid was known as nately's whore because he would do anything for money) any way, when those kids find me on linked in or something they put that in some times (oh, or they think I AM crazy) JK.
Cider house rules is amazing... 'you know what kind of man I am? I'm a razor totin' man'
I have a great john irving story I have told here (about meeting him)
he was part of the donny and marie of his time.
I’m with you on East of Eden, loved the book but could never get into the movie.
“What business are you in?”
the apple pickin' bidness. My name is Mr. Rose.
I thought that was the Shelleys.
The movie left out the most important character in the book: Sam.
I too found it lacking, but after seeing it again, I was able to find that it at least tried to convey the main themes. So long as you could put up with James Dean’s excessive emoting.
There was a mini series made from the book some years ago, with (I think) Jane Seymour and Timothy (Joseph?) Bottoms that was very true to the book. You might want to check that one out sometime.
“And the rest is not our bidness.” T.S McElligot.
I completely agree sir.
Snowden dying still gets me when I reread it... there there...

The bus was, I believe, originally called "FURTHUR", not "FURTHER."
You also named Lonesome Dove as one of your favorite books.
I never read the book but loved the mini series. I watch it a couple times a year.
I liked the Return to Lonesome Dove even though I don’t care for Jon Voight.
There was just enough original cast to pull it off.
So much more could have been done with the Newt Dobbs character, but the whole franchise after the Return to Lonesome Dove just fell apart.
And her shoes.
I can still hear her accent. I was in love....
Ha! I think you're right. This one's a poser. I think they made a replica for a movie of some sort. Here's a picture of the original:
Read the book, you won’t regret it.
In the original book sequel, entitled The Streets of Laredo, the reader is told at the outset that Newt had died in Montana. I didn’t care for that book too much. I always thought they (he) should have done more with Newt.
I loved the book. A great, antiauthoritarian novel with lots of humour. I first read it during my university years in the early 70s and found both the antiauthority and satire to be wonderful. I've reread it numerous times since. Good choice!
The movie version of Sometimes a Great Notion contains wonderful performances and scenery.
it along with junior bonner are movies I watch regularly... it is like my childhood.. kinda rough and scary and very 'real' and the last scene is as good as the big chief breaking out in cuckoo's nest.
I read Catch 22 as my final exam for my 11th grade literature class. I recall my teacher being fairly impressed with my choice and the essay I wrote. Great book. Will have to read it again.
Loved the movie version of Sometimes a Great Notion. Thought I would read the book. I got stuck somewhere in the first half. Have no idea where I left it! Then again, I started the Iliad about 20 times before I forced myself through about 20 percent of it. Could not put it down after that. Once done, I went right out to the bookstore (yeah, it has been a while!), bought the Odyssey, and read it is no time flat. Now there is some good reading. Achilles - such a whiner!
Moby Dick anyone? Wow. What a great novel.
Hope I am not getting too far off topic here.
