Before I continue with second chance by number7

I'm on like book three. I'm wondering (I did a little skimming) does he really keep writing all these great women characters and then causing the mc to lose them? It was bad enough with Beth Ann but I don't know if I cn continue on if one thing happens to Colleen and Rebecca, or want to for that matter.

Carl (in whatever body he ends up in) ends up losing the women in his life either through his death or theirs.

I'm afraid that's the overarching story arc, temporary happiness until the universe gives Carl another kicking.

However there was one part with a twist, when Carl found himself inside a woman's body.

It goes on and on - Jennifer has kicked the bucket as has President / Vice President Dryden and Polly. Why doesn't he read http://storiesonline.net/s/52923/hunter
and wipe them all out in one fell swoop?

Because the point of the story is torturing the MC over and over and over...?

What is a "fell swoop"?


Well, swoop means: to sweep through the air, as a bird or a bat, especially down upon prey.

Of course, fell is the past tens of fall, so any downward swoop in the past is a fell swoop. In the present or future tense it would be a fall swoop.

BlacKnight

The phrase is from Shakespeare's Macbeth: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/one_fell_swoop#English

In this context, "fell" is an adjective meaning "cruel", of derivation separate from the verb "fall".

That second paragraph is your problem; "fell swoop" is English (perhaps with a bit of Devonian thrown into the mix). It means to do everything in one go rather than piecemeal.

In Hunter the MC decided that the Muslims were causing the problem so he set to to wipe them all out at the same time, i.e. in one fell swoop. Oh and before you comment (you never ever complain) the two tos is correct because "set to" means "to start")

two tos is correct

Every month has a to to (22) in it. I always think it is Ballet Day, because ballerinas wear tutus. (Pronounced like to to, or maybe two two or even too too.)
