    I'm having a little problem....

    I've recently read a book where somebody said:the icy blue eyes that had looked at him for all these years and thad had known him as a child.....
    Shouldn't that be either: the icy blue eys which had looked at him all these years and which had known him as a child
    or:The pair of icy blue eyes that....? Thanks or your help,
    Eve

    It's simply a typo. 'thad' should be 'that'.

    Re: I'm having a little problem....

    Why do you think it should have read "which" instead of "that"?
