Thanks, bud!

SPOILERS



Ahhh....and all is right with the world.  I really liked the tight focus of this chapter - skillfully done.  I think most people can relate to how both our poor guys were feeling. 

But....there seem to be little foreshadowings that something is going on with Junior.....could be she's feeling a little left out?  But I think there's more to it, and with all the trauma over Ken and Ennis, she may feel she needs to keep it to herself? Hmmm... Could be so many things.....

Spoilers  :D

This novel still continues to amaze me.  I identify with so many things in this novel, and I also keep learning so many things too.  I actually have a highlighter, and I highlight sentences that are important learning moments for me.  This novel gives many different views of two men in a relationship living together, and how they deal with the problems that come up for them.  I have had a relationship very similar to this, so this may be why it's hitting hard for me.  What happens in Chapter 37, I acted like Ennis is acting in this chapter, and I basically threw a good thing away.  While I was reading this, I understood what both characters were going through perfectly.  I'm amazed at the love and patience Jack shows for Ennis.  How he let's him take the shower, but is nearby when he knows Ennis is going to call for help, even after being yelled at and talked down to by Ennis, only for tryin' to help him.  What stamina and patience.  I guess this is what you do for true love.  Hey, I'm learnin' here...  :)

Yeah, I love both Human Interest and Two Crows too. 

More *spoilers*

This chapter was very smart.  It's hard to see Ennis feeling so grumpy.  But, it's easy to understand his situation and state of mind.  I love how protective Jack feels towards Ennis in this chapter.  The fact that he waited outside the bathroom knowing that Ennis would need his help despite Ennis's initial protest was really sweet.

I really liked the interlude too. 
:)


Spoiler:

I really thought it was clever when Ennis said that his costume didn't make any sense without Jack... I thought that was quite profound even in a light-hearted little scene.

I loved it when Junior said she was going to dress up as a hooker. That was priceless. I could just imagine the look of horror on Ennis,s face lol. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
