Nicole There are a few f-bombs and the c word. It was strange that no one bats an eye when they are used in mixed company in the 30's.
Lyn I thought the bad language in this book, like the c word, was a bit out of place. Only sailors would have used those word in mixed company, (here I malign sailors!). I would have thought back in the 30's there was not much swearing, then again I was born in the 50's and in Australia and swearing just wasn't heard in my childhood. I remember one incident only, when a huge, angry and mentally unhinged man in our suburb once used the c word, but he disappeared off the streets very quickly.
