What Happened At Midnight (1967)
« on: March 06, 2014, 08:57:51 PM »
Currently I am re-reading What Happened At Midnight, the 1967 revised text.  In some ways this book is very dated in 2014; how many "hams" have you met lately, and I'm not talking about the ham that you have at the dinner table.  I wonder what kids would think if someone came up to their door and said "I'm a ham!", as occurs at the end of chapter 2 and the beginning of chapter 3 (it was a radio ham that came to the Hardy's door).

Also, this is a very interesting book in relation to page 19.  When you read the page, you'll see what I mean, since Frank apparently has a conversation with himself for most of the page.

Yeah, I guess so- it's been forever since I read that book. Even the revised books seem can seem out of date now...oh well- I still love them. I guess you just have to go into reading the book by reading the copyright date first and keep that in mind in the book- it's like a time machine to the late 1960s. :) 8)
