    The ďpredictable anti-trump referencesĒ arenít there though.

    Honestly, I think your reaction to Kingís snide and snarky tweets might be clouding your judgment about his books. Youíre interpreting...

    RichardX, I Wonít requote everything youíve posted, but I will say in response that I didnít see much, if any, of this in Billy summers.

    There is almost no discussion about Trump or Trump...

    I have had generally good luck with Waterstone's but more despite their packing than because of it. The cardboard sleeve does little to protect the book, but usually it does enough.

    For my own interest, I looked up the first five references to Trump in Billy Summers.

    I assume these five passages were the five mentioned; I am reading these on Kindle so I don't know the page...

    Five references in 50 pages is hardly a manifesto, and the references themselves are (if I recall correctly) more talking about whether a character supports Trump or not, rather than jabs or snide...

    That's more or less where I land on it, too. No heroes on any side of that one.

    Im about 75% through Billy Summers, and hasn't been much of that, if any. It's set in 2019, so some of his characters make passing references to Trump - pro and con. But the younger character wasn't...

    I generally don't like dramatizations of events like this - I prefer documentaries. (O.J. - Made in America vs ACS Season 1). Both are interpretations of events, but at least in a documentary you're...

    Dilection, obscure for choice or choosing.

    As a children's rhyme used for choosing a person or thing:

    Eeny meeny miney mo, (eknee, meknee, myknee, mo) my wordplay.

    Yeah, It's a nice edition. HarperCollins seem to be maintaining the quality of these deluxe editions - of the first printings, at least. I'm glad they did a deluxe edition of NoM-E, too.

    Thatís really neat. Iíve only seen the ISS fly over maybe twice?

    Fun fact about the ISS: it travels at about 5 miles per second. If you stood on the goal line of a football field and fired a...

    How does "knee", or "nee", become "part of a child's rhyming dilection"? I can get the rest, I think.

    (I was thinking of "salon", instead of "court" so I was way off. :lol: )

    Same. It looks like a soft reboot, which would be disappointing. You don't want the characters spending 45 minutes figuring out what the audience already knows.
