Response through page 297My response to the¬†book thus far hasn’t changed much. The biggest changes in my response involve how I am reacting to Rosie and her mother going into Coats home, not knowing that he has killed someone **they have been on the cruse for that whole thing**, and then that they missed their boat because of Coats. The thing that is most interesting is the fact that After the book talked about Coats watching their boat go off in the distance, they change back to where Charlie is and what he is doing. I assume that I’ll know their reaction within the next few pages, but I haven’t read that far into the next chapter, yet. I’m kinda starting to worry about spider, because he has been taken by the bird creature that wanted to kill him and Charlie, and he is currently in the process of being tortured. Fun. Spider acts like he’s holing up ok, but he also seems to know that he is doing worse off then he can feel. I would assume that he s freed in the next couple of chapters, but at the same time, I only read ahead so much …
