Forgive Me Father...For I have Sinned.

  1. Hi,
    I tried to read this book when it first came out and couldn't get past the first chapter, it was so depressing! So much for that rule for writers that you need to hook your audience with your first 50 pages. (I'm a historical novelist, working on my first novel) Like you, I never met a book I didn't like. Except this one. Frankly, I don't know how he got away with that (friend/relative in the publishing business, maybe?) Anyway, I went to see the movie and this scene was the funniest thing ever! I just couldn't stop laughing. My husband wasn't brought up Catholic, so he didn't get it, but boy did I! Did it ever remind me of how sitting in that confessional, was just like sitting in a dark closet, I told him, and thinking that you were hearing the voice of God, because you couldn't see anything. At the age of six, this was the epitome of being terrified. I loved the look on the boy's face! Yes, later I managed to finish the book, and I enjoyed the other funny episodes too. Frank of course, went on to write two more books. His madcap adventures as a teacher were funny too. You could never get away with that stuff these days, those were the good old days! (Yes, I'm also a teacher)
    Great blog, I love your sense of humor. I've got to start my own soon.
