FFS, aren't there enough old sailboats that anyone who wants one can get it for nearly nothing? I'm with other guy, I pay plenty of my own money to go sailing. I also live in a nice house thanks to my wife. I do hope to be sailing when I'm 82 but if I sink my boat I guess I'll have to figure something else out. I'm happy he has friends who want to help out, maybe they should find a suitable local boat and figure out what it would take to get him out there again.
I loved all of Reacher's tales, and in my mind I always imagined Alec Baldwin as Reacher. How they got all the way down to pint-sized Tom Cruise suggests to me that the director and other execs were not genuine fans,,, they were just hired hands.
Joe Pike is not as well-known, and a man of few words.
Mitch Rapp is another great protagonist for thriller readers. When I wonder what Rapp might look like I take a look at the author on the cover: Vince Flynn.
Once, on a airplane, a grown woman and her mother were quietly bickering across the aisle. I overheard the woman say, "Well, you go right ahead and die mother, but I have books to read."
So many books, so little time. I'm on a roll now with reading all of Stuart Wood's MANY works.
And who could ask more of a character than Aloysius Xingu L. Pendergast? I try to read all authors in order of publication but it's a must with Pendergast. Start with Relic.
I don't see how so many have so much time for TV.
alec Baldwin? No fing way. I have to say that Cruise did a much better job then I expected. But still way too small
Alec Baldwin?! I'm not sure that you even read the books to come up with Alec Baldwin. Someone earlier in the thread suggested Liev Schreiber which was much closer.
