Noticed Something Strange...

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Okay, I guess the title is a little misleading, as this book is kinda strange in general. But really, in the third chapter, I noticed that the room Mr. Whittier sits in, described as a "French Louis XV lobby" with "cornflower blue velvet" chairs. I may be wrong on this, but that sounds a lot like the setting of "No Exit" by Jean-Paul Sartre. Of course, it makes perfect sense in the context of the novel (it's a personal Hell). Do you think Chuck planned it this way? Have you found any other throwbacks to other works?
