BOYS LIFE 8 By Robert McCammon
QUOTATIONS Traveling, traveling: to see Kings Ludwig, Nicholas, Zanthas, Daman, Farron, Burl and Swane. Traveling, traveling: to castles of red sand, hewn of blue trees, formed of fire, shaped of sculpted clouds. Traveling, traveling, with planets and stars beyond and invitation books open to a single name. The solitary traveler has left this world. He will not pass this way again. Its just…I sure would hate to live that way. Could hardly move. Sure couldnt see the sun. And every day would be just like the day before, even if you lived a million days. I cant stand the thought of that. Can you, Cory?
QUOTATIONS Miss Blue Glass took that parrot to Dr. Lezander a couple of weeks ago. It had a brain fever or somethin birds get. Thats what the doc told her. Anyhow, the parrot kicked the bucket. And why dont they do that to everythin? Just put a whole towns stores under one roof so the rain wont fall on you and you wont get cold. Wouldnt that be a jim- dandy idea? And then youll have stores and roads and houses, but you wont have towns anymore. Not the way they are now.
QUOTATIONS He fell on his knees at the arraignment and professed, sobbing to shake Shakespeare, that he was Born Again and had been duped into following the paths of Satan by his own misguided sons. They must take after their mothers, he said. He vowed to devote his life to being a minister, if, by the grade of the Lord above, the judge would offer him up a cup of mercy.
THE BIG QUESTIONS Fantasy or Reality. Discuss the fantasies and realities thus far in the book. What realities in this section of the book are some of the pitfalls of growing up? Is there more evidence being revealed to indicate who the murderer is? What is the effect of progress on Corys dad?
