I was stuck in Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro.
Because she said she'd a good mind to talk about it herself.
I understand the sentence but never read this form, does the 'd mean would? Even so could you explain me this usecase?
Also how do you read it outloud ? I guess she would a good mind but it doesn't feel natural to me.
... and explain why it was we went
Shouldn't be why we went or why we did go ?
