Van has finished reading…The Testament Of Gideon Mack by James Robertson

7 Feb

Some people we believe, others we don’t. Some things we believe, others we don’t. How do we gauge that point where a thing becomes unbelievable? If a man in a pub tells us a tall story are we more likely to think it a tall tale if he’s grizzled and beer-soaked, or will we accept the fantastical from the mouth of the man in the dog collar?

  Do we grade our belief?  Ghosts – yes, angels – sure, fairies gremlins God – no?

  And what says more about the man: the things he says we simply can’t believe, or the lies we know, in the end, he did tell?
