I'm fairly open minded and such but that book really was the most overwritten and overrated piece of literature I've had the misfourtune of being forced to read.

It's like the book was intentionally written to be studied in High School full of techniques & simplistic yet over metaphorised plot line.

My Pop who is of a similar vintage listened to the audiobook and his only comment was the stupidest thing I've ever heard and an impersionation of the mother putting Fish's d!@k back in his pants. Often he will also say... the knife never lies... it's hillarious.

It's a European spelling variation.
Being a Yankee myself, I get eyebrows when I spell words like that.

Cloudstreet was read on the Shebang on MMM

And sevikins and electrical storm, Colour is spelt Colour. It is not a European variation and American spell it incorrectly with Color. Remember, it's the English language...Fuck, this is a pet peeve of mine.
