  • Old Man and the Sea [Random Observations Pages 0-32]


    This is the place to discuss random things you may notice in the story that may not fit nicely into any one particular category. These additions do NOT have to be complete thoughts. They can be things that stuck out to you, or things that you think might be important later (but aren't sure yet.)

  • Rules


    1. Create a new post and reply to an old one. 2. Only post under your own name 3. Do not bash people for their ideas. Say something like "I follow what you're saying, but I think that the book is about Hemingway, not about Assassin's Creed IV." 4. Comments are subject to the BHS Handbook. They should be treated as homework submissions and not chat-room entries. Violators will be banned and/or written up. 5. Do not save your best ideas for yourself. This implies that you have it all figured out and cannot improve. If you have a real gem of an idea, it inspires the thoughts of others. Inspiration breeds inspiration, and we'll be into new territory together. 6. The NEUVEAU (New) button is used to post something new. The REPONDRE (Respond) button is what you hit if you'd like to respond to someone else.
