Feel free to join in by posting your own FCFPTI and linking below

Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Book 1
The Dead

He wished the phone would stop ringing. It was bad enough to be sick let alone having a phone ring all night long. Boy was he sick. Not from any of their sour french wine either. A man couldn’t hold enough of it to get a head this big. His stomach was going round and round and round. Fine thing nobody’d answer that phone. It sounded like it was ringing in a room about a million miles wide. His head was a million miles wide too. The hell with the telephone.

  1. A ringing phone is very annoying! Sounds good.

  2. Intriguing! Who is calling whom and what does that person want?

    • This book made such a huge emotional impression on me when I was in Jr. High that I never forgot about it. I bought a new copy the other day and as soon as I can I’m going to re-read it.

  3. Hmm, yes, I’d read more. I am curious.

  4. For some reason, I think I read this book in high school. That was a long time ago, though, so I don’t really remember the story off the top of my head 🙂

  5. I just looked it up at the library and then requested it.

  6. Hmmm. Interesting. I wonder what is making him sick since he mentioned it wasn’t the wine.

  7. I remember reading this book way, way back when I was in high school.
