Re: Reactions of Non-readers

Most of the theater laughed when Ron went down for real after drinking the poisoned mead. It was kind of funny because a couple of young women in front of us were clearly scandalized by this, but unless you read the book, then how were you to know that this flop was meant anything different from the prior ones?

(It doubles for The Hobbit, too!)
If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired. Otherwise don't put it there. - A. P. Chekhov, Gurlyand's Reminiscences, and who knew why the Dog was long before the Shack!
