I thought I would try another game.

In this version, a character name will be posted. If you know the name of the novel that character is from, post the answer, and then you list a new character name for us to post on....

Simple enough, right?

(just try to stay away from painfully obvious ones ex: Harry Potter or Odd Thomas -- character names that appear in the title of the novel....)

Heres an easy one to kick us off:

Holden Caulfield.

peg (mcicutti) | 24 comments I remember a Robert Muldoon in Jurassic Park but not Roberta.Is Jurassic Park the answer?


message 13: by Beth (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:38PM) (new)

Beth Actually, it's "The World According to Garp". Roberta Muldoon was formerly Robert Muldoon, who played for the Philadelphia Eagles, then had sex-reassignment surgery after reading Garp's mother's book. I didn't know there was a Robert Muldoon in Jurassic Park!

Peg, you go next.


message 14: by peg (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:38PM) (new)

peg (mcicutti) | 24 comments I completely forgot about Garp! I think that Robert Muldoon is also the guy in Jurassic Park who thinks that the dinosaurs should be destroyed because of the threat they are to human life.

Back up the game...These were GENEROUS hints...and you did not even supply the co-author's last name! You can search it on this site? Did you look up Stephen King??

HINT: If you read the reviews of Black House you will know which book I intended!

[Hey, I am defending the accusation of my being easy-peasy! LOL]

Alison Sorry! I didn't check this for a while. The Continental Op is the main character in Dashielle Hammett's "Red Harvest" which is the last book I read. His real name is never given. He is an operative for The Continental Detective Agency out of San Fransisco. Sorry for the confusion. Carry on!
