Last Continent Pre-Discussion Discussion

Postby poohcarrot » Fri Apr 01, 2011 8:42 am

I'm shocked! :shock:

I've just read the Lost Continent discussion on the CA site and not one person seems to have "got" one of the main themes of the book. :shock:

And everyone seemed to dislike it, while I rate it more highly than Night Watch. :?

Nowt so queer as folk, I'll go to the foot of my stairs etc etc :lol:

Are they discussing the LAst continent, while you are discussing another book called the LOst continent? :)

Actually, I like it a lot more now than I did, but I'll SAVE THAT FOR THE DISCUSSION ON MONDAY.

Ooops, silly me, the caps button seems to have stuck. :P

Tony, you don't have a part time job that involves hourglasses and a scythe, do you?

Funnily enough, I live across the road from a cemetery and they had a sign up in there for ages looking for a person able to use a scythe as there were places where they couldn't use a lawn mower. It always made me hoot with laughter. :lol:
