Greetings, I am back. While in prison (for unpaid fines) in Germany I was able to read four Stephen King novels in English (mother language Canadian) from the prison library. Needful Things was pretty cool. It reads like a short story in long novel (Roman as they say in German) form. I really like the concept of the Shop's owner with the forefinger being longer than the middle finger. Pointing fingers and labelling people was always naughty, grandma said, however, perhaps it is not so bad having a forefinger longer than the middle finger because then the middle finger cannot be used to say F-off from a distance. A cool accent, in my opinion. Anyone else?
