What does the following sentence mean? Which one was fortunate? I mean was (Sean Bean) luckier or (Richard Sharpe)?
Maybe Sharpe’s greatest stroke of good fortune was meeting Sean Bean.
Thank you all
It means that Sharpe is lucky to meet Sean Bean. In this particular
situation, meeting Sean Bean is good for Sharpe. Not knowing the
other details of the story, I cannot say who is luckier as such. Perhaps
SB is very rich compared to RS, and in that case we can consider
SB to be luckier, right? But meeting SB is lucky for RS in the
sense that it appears that it will be of help to RS in some way.
