The Map of Time - Felix J. Palma
PAGE 56:

Ultimately, there was no point in confronting his father with a sound argument and reasoned thinking, as he was sure any civilized discussion of the matter would be impossible.

  1. OK, here is the really spooky thing. I have read this quote before and I haven;t read this book. Maybe someone else used it as their page 56 quote. I certainly have had the experience of feeling like there is no point in arguing.

Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).
