As a Salinger fan I kind of want to read it, although it's highly likely to suck.
Almost as much as Donnie Darko was.
you massive phony
I wasted a lot of time trying to find this thread when he first tried to block it, so I could post something similar.
At least we know he's still alive.
it'll be terrible.
Did anyone ever read that "alternate version" of Clockwork Orange?
Apart from anything else, someone called "Belinda" is perhaps on shaky ground when trying to talk Street.
and I think maybe I should keep it that way. I just assume I wouldn't have the same reaction 10 years later and end up disappointed
I read it when I was 15 and only thought it was ok, but I appreciated it a lot more when I was 20 or so.
but I can't seem to force my eyes to do it.
Looks like Lucozade has some competition. 9/10 sports physicians say Angria will help you go the distance.
This doesn't look good for my new book, 'Seymour: A Resurrection', in which he joins a roller disco group called the Banana Fish.
The Guardian called it 'a failure of tremendous proportions'
with guest writer Rob Schneider. Rated PG 13.
Pitcher in the Maize?
Shortstop in the Barley?
Umpire in the Corn?
has its own existence beyond what is written by that author, thus can be written into fiction by another author. Stems from when you create a character and you know everything about them, even things that would never be possibly spoken about.
i like: agatha christie fanfiction, novelisations of tin tin, pirandello... 2/3 of those are belgian characters, cool!
anyway, yeah it's a cool idea. I'm gonna read it.
and different authors have written about him? I'm sure I read that somewhere.
It's possible that I dreamed it though.
yeah, he's been in Neighbours, 24, Lost, The OC...
that could be put in the 'public domain', like those folk songs that are so old no one knows who the original author is, and that are credited as 'Traditional' on albums. Authors would be allowed to do anything they want with that character and you could end up with this sort of Zelig type figure that's written about for decades and who has several histories because they've been written by so many different people. Each book this character appears in could reference the previous book, and so on. Like, he could have a sex change and in the next book be back to a man, and think about the womanly years while he's a captain of a submarine or something.
idk, it'd probably suck after a while though.
I saw on the TV a while back a sequel to American Psycho. It had virtually nothing to do with the book, and was basically just a terrible teen flick in the style of Cruel Intentions (but so much worse) starring the girl who does the voice of Meg in Family Guy.
It's not even as if the original film of the book was any good.
I guess in conclusion : at least it isn't a film. Yet.
that film is AMAZING
elizabeth kept going into darkened rooms to weep and sob anc cry
ELIZABETH DOESNT CRYU, DID YOU ACTUALLY READ AND UNDERSTAND THE BOOK, CRAPPY AUTHOR? ELIZABETH IS WELL HARD
you're not allowed to see them as a married couple and find out if they live happily ever after, that's a large part of the appeal.
They're so gonna get sued into oblivion. He should've saved it for fanfiction.net. <jackson.gif>
