Default Re: Book 58: BLACK DOGS by Ian McEwan

Yes, that's an accurate description of it, but I think there is something more directive about it, more focused: that it had to be *that* moment rather than any other random 'road taken' that releases the outcomes that ensue. Of which you could say "after it, nothing was ever the same" - which you couldn't say of a moment when you chose to go to Sainsbury's rather than Tesco's to do your shopping.
