Appears some make book dialectic chatter before some barely have begun book.

Is possible is not possible to join chat until farther read.

um, as one of the 'some'.........I find it necessary to point out that you have in fact mastered the depalatization beautifully. Laughing
Actually I thought you were farther along. Embarassed

Charles and Whiskey,
I couldn't help but think of Puget over on NYT when the Siamese twins were mentioned. (p.51-52)

Highlight guys.... ^^^^ While it is not a real spoiler, still.

Bart,
I hope it might be some consolation that I am further behind you on my own re-read, but someday soon I'll open page 1.
How far along are you?
Charles

Bart -- I was under the impression that everyone was fully ready to jump into this discussion. Still we've had others where people were reading while the discussion was going on and even commented about where they were in the particular book. If you read the forum on East of Eden you'll see that.

So not to worry. Just comment about what you're reading as you go.

And I'd like to add that while Whiskey is our moderator, one doesn't have to wait for him to chat. Talk about what you'd like and Whiskey will join when he can.

If this forum not a success, I will be execute!

I thinnk most of us have read Pnin, and I was going on that assumotion. It is kind of hard to discuss a book when we can only go as fast as the last reader.

Hey mister Priest guy, I have a movie to watch for my Frears' forum and I'm writing a book and I'm...well...I'm...well that's enough. I'm very very busy. I can't go to the library because it's closed on the weekend.

Actually (would I say anything that wasn't), when I read Pnin, I was managing a store in a town 130 miles form my home and the guy who ran the slap dash furniture store down the basement from my store was a poor man's Pnin. He was from Poland and sort of lost in the circumstance he was in. He would make his own signs and with the fractured English they could be real wierd. Ah, but that's a story for when I read the book again.

Whiskey,

Most of the people here have read the book. Bart will catch up. Please continue and go as fast as you want to. In short, as fast as any reader who has finished the book.

PS. I have all the confidence, you will make this a success.

Have no fear! I'll be going slow with my own rereading.
And I'll be having things I like to talk about no matter what you all are talking about. /only half facetious/ Laughing
But I'll be good.
Charles

Just notice that "Bart-o" anagram for "Borat." Like tovaritch cyberchatman say, Bart catch up. But for nows, Bart say "nichevo" on Pnin.

Well this is all pretty disheartening. I can't blame Whiskey one bit.
