I’m a general manager for Arby’s. Started as a crew member. To this day, I still have folks ordering the Big Montana as if it were still on the menuboard just the day before. It changed to the Large Roast Beef, and now, it’s the Half Pound Roast Beef, with 8oz of beef. The Big Montana & the Large Roast Beef had 7oz, but came on a 5″ sesame seed bun. Now, it’s a 4″ sesame seed bun. And I promise you, it’s so much better tasting than any previous versions, in my opinion, but I also like to double toast the bun when I enjoy it. :]

So I know many will look over this or see it as childish but do you think that we are missing those small details like the condom wrapper and that the book has the answers but we all keep chasing our tails with clues trying to find some big answer. Anna would always make her puzzles look REALLY complicated but turn out kinda simple. Just a though but maybe it will help

I am a rottie/swissie/ labbie lover I think poodles temperamental and unattractive they are nerds
in the dog world bad with kids while the rottie is so cute faced and elegant so is the weinmareiner/pointer/ I am not a fan of toy non shedding ugly dogs or those ugle poodles being bred with all of the large breed working and sporting groups yes poodles are designed for nerdy unnattractive people who never had it going on

Agree with op here. I have done my research and everyone has an opinion. I would rather a dog that is obedient and more of a dog than a Muppet that can do tricks. Silly dogs awefull looking. Only good for sesame street.

This is a theory of one of my friends so I take no credit for it.
Anna is in Goddard, Alaska. So that’s how to draw a bunny. I think she’s in Goddard Alaska, because in one of the notes not from the book, it says she’s going to G______, which looks like Gregory, but the letters say she’s near a shore.
So, Deaths is Devons, because they have the same number of letters and start and end the same, so they do know each other.
So we know how they made him leave, we know where she went, but we don’t know why they did it. Also, Anna’s obituary for Mr. Devons is backwards.

So, the story so far. Mr. Devons and Anna both have dead relatives, so that’s a detail. (Also, I’m pretty sure NYCS is there version of Simple as Snow.) Anyways, they know each other and for a reason we don’t know come up with a plan to get a completely normal person to leave the town. They try with Bryce and it doesn’t work, so they try with G(regory), with Mr. Devon telling him to meet people in the library when he conveniently meets Anna on his first attempt. Then, all the codes and stuff that regard the community (ie, the telephone in the woods…) are probably there to convince him that even a boring town can be full of too many secrets for one person to handle, causing him to stop looking for Anna and instead going to his brother in Baton Rouge (see G’s obituary). Meanwhile, Anna has run away to somewhere both by the sea and really cold, so Germany is not an option, and of Russia and Goddard, Alaska, the latter has more evidence supporting it. She’ll later go to Baton Rouge where she knows G would be going because she learned about his brother from him, hence putting that particular place in his obituary. So the only answer left is why Devons and Anna want to do that.

Maybe because they have a tendency to meddle, and it has become addictive? I believe she may also have had an actual emotional tie to him, as she was willing to spend the rest of her life with him, according to the obituary.
I’ll send the photos he found shortly, and I am to credit him as Marmite. Also this is a copy and pasted message chat from messenger, so thanks why the wording is wierd

Please bring back the big Montana I go to Arby’s all the time looking for special time offer or something featuring the big Montana, but never find. No other fast food chain can compete with it.

I see that 4 comments are awaiting moderation…. I just finished this book and had no idea about any of this! When I went on the website (because I was curious as it was at the bottom of a page full of gibberish) and clicked on the clues page, it said they’ve been discontinued and you’ll “just have to figure it out on your own". So I mean, I googled it. And found this. It appears that the last comment was in 2012; did anyone ever solve the mystery? I love all the ideas here; the only one I actually found out myself was the one about the main character being the author. :-) Let me know if anybody did figure it out though, I’m curious!

This is now my favorite book and I spent a few school days cracking the Houdini Code (which I found very exciting and frustrating) and had some theories myself.
I read many of the comments that have already been posted, but of course didn’t wait too long before starting my own.

My mom just finished the book as well and she’s opened up my eyes to several details I missed when I read As Simple As Snow.

Here goes-
The Narrator’s name is Gregory Galloway. Everyone knows this now. That’s the “G__” of the double dactyl.

The obituaries all had something flip flopped in them, at least Mr. Devon’s and Anna’s.

In Mr. Devon’s obituary it says he was killed by the starting of an accidental fire. This is an indication of my previous statement on this theory might be true because it was Mr. Devon’s girlfriend that had died of a supposed “accidental fire” already.

Mr. Cayne (Anna’s dad) read the obituary and said Anna was never coming back, foretelling her having flip flopped it.
Anna’s obituary told how Anna’s sister, Maria, ran away from home and never came back– in the book, the dress Anna left was indicating she had drowned in the frozen river.
—–My mom’s theory is that the dress was actually referring to Maria and that SHE had drowned in the lake, leaving the disappearing role for Anna.
—–A side theory on that is that Mr. Devon knew about Anna’s sister and the flip-floppiness of the obituaries she’d written.

A separate theory that others have guessed is that those close to Gregory: Anna, Carl, and Mr. Devon had some secret connection to this “Alaska” place and that it might be code for somewhere just outside of, or around town.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT I HAVE ON THE SOLVING OF THE HOUDINI CODE, MESSAGE ME AND I’LL SEND YOU WHAT I’VE GOT. :)

Where was everyone getting the mail through postal and e-mails from? How did you sign up for it? I read this about three weeks ago and have came up with a bunch, but if anyone would like to forward anything with the clues from either mail I’d love to know. I just adore these ‘clue’ type things-figuring out things. I would like to solve this book but where’s the fun if it’s over? You know? If we could start this up again it’d be amazing.

Poodels were originaly bred as hunting dogs.The poodel clips were to protect their joints and organs from water n cold while preventing the dog from getting caught on branches.Performers then trained the dogs to be entertainers.These dogs are quite clever.Part of hunting or should I say entertaining is the intelligence to be intertaining.I think except for the sheapard Mean dogs may actually be the ones that are bimbos just like humans.

Lol.Poodel owner.Your just a hater.Or someone that can only enjoy art or pleasant things on the little magic box called T.V. Maybe to you in real life its not appropriate.Poodels have ben bred by performers to perform for hundreds of years.The original circus dogs.Also the traditional clip was to protect the dogs joints and organs while they hunted in woods.And retrived game from water.You sound realy ignorant.And boring.

What I keep going back to is that nobody died the entire time Anna was in town. G said it was the longest drought the funeral home had ever seen. Even Bryce who was in a horrible car wreck (maybe with Anna) only broke his leg. I think there is defiantly something supernatural going on.

Poodles are second in intelligence only to Border Collies. They are beautiful, loyal, loveable dogs. Perhaps you just are not smart enough to be a poodle owner.

Amen to that, honestly poodles are the ugliest dogs I’ve ever seen. Not only look wise, but also personality wise too. I’ve been bitten more by those horrendous beasts than by pitbulls or even doberman dogs.

And I get even more pissed thanks to this preppy neighbor I’ve got, she has two of those demons ( frequently dyed in gross neon colors, eugh!!) and they always try to attack my German Sheperd mix. He’s adopted, has been abused and abandoned BUT somehow manages to have better behaviour than them??

You want a good dog? Don’t get one of these, you’ll regret it all your damn life. Adopt a mixed breed, all those I’ve met are amazing dogs.

Hi , look ill start off by saying I laughed at your post and then laughed at the comments hurling abuse at you , because you are my past and they are my now .
I didn’t like poodles as any interaction with them was not enjoyable snappy and nasty little creatures I thought. Probably due to a elderly neighbour s poodle names peppy a grey poodle when I was a teen, but one day my daughter brought home a poodle pup , they are so smart it’s not funny , we had a dog and I can’t believe how dumb other breeds are in comparison , Eli my now best friend is a protective companion and generally if I don’t like someone he picks it up and will growl ( bit of a telltale ) this dog is a cross between a cat and human! The only dog I’ve come across with a sense of humour ( poodle owners are nodding ) for you I would suggest a husky also a smart dog but stand of fish won’t care if you don’t but very loyal and will give you the love you obviously need ! Have a great life!
Ps poodles hair is like human so if you didn’t wash or cut your hair you would end up with dreads and sores on your scalp. Same goes for them ! My poodle laughed at your post too, but never wants that square cut lol

I actually think the complete opposite of what you posted. I happen to think Standard Poodles are one of the most beautiful breeds among dogs. They are so majestic and have a nice posture.. They were bred as waterretrievers .. (hence de name poodle : german pudle for puddle) I think they are similar to Azawakhs and Sloughi’s … I’m actually considering to buy one when I move out.. They are very smart creatures!

I would have NEVER considered having a poodle as a pet. I have owned dogs my whole life, that has spanned over many decades.
My close friend past away 16 months ago and I took his 6 year old poodle. This dog is the most amazing dog I have ever owned, he is unbelievably smart.
How can you comment on something you obviously know nothing about. That’s one stupid person, at least the poodle has more brains than that….
