Kat Kennedy I'm interested to read what you think about this book!

message 2: by Moira (new)

Moira Russell ....I still think either her spine or her neck look broken.

message 3: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! Sheesh! I thought I'd set my options so that the update feed wouldn't show my bookshelf changes - how did you see it so quickly? Is it popping up on your feed? Or were you looking at the book's page and saw me listed in the currently-reading list?

I'm not too far in but it feels like a mashup.

The cover seems to be one of those modified photos? Maybe the model was confused by the directions being screamed at her by the photographer? The picture could've been snapped while she was trying to be a panther and a praying mantis at the same time. It's bad posture. It looks like she should be in a brace or on the operating table to correct it.

message 4: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! Argh, nevermind. I just rechecked my account options and see that I'd fiddled with some of the options and forgot about it.

message 5: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy LOL - no, Eh! I've been stalking you - watching through your window with my binoculars to see you read it!

message 6: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! Stalker! Flag! Curtains!

//chokes on tea HA!

message 8: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! That pose reminds me a little of Jim Carrey as Ace Ventura.

Maybe it's some Victorian method of intimidating other women with her Uterus. Like walking around with it shoved out as much as you can in some strange, posturing method.

Naturally your head is allowed to do some funny angles and shit because a female's head is hardly the most important factor to the average Victorian male.

Kelly The part about the projection of the reader onto Alexia is spot-on. That's clearly what this book is about- and yeah, a lot of Romance is about that (as you point out). It's just so painfully obvious in this book that sometimes I found it hard to look straight at it without being a little embarrassed! I totally understand it, but... yeah.

Also, OMG, love the part about unbuttoning her dress with her back on the floor. So true! Romance novels are soooo guilty of this- I guess it's all part of the wish fulfillment- awkward body readjustments are banned! Buttons move to conveinent removal positions by power of our sexiness!

message 12: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! Thanks! I think I will go walk home in my car and shoot daggers from my eyes at my nightly repast while eating from bone china plates decorated with a delicate tracery of lilac forget-me-nots around the bordering edge. Then I will lie back upon my divan while my shoes and socks miraculously disappear, along with the tiny ivory buttons that line the back of my t-shirt.

I can't contribute to all the discussions on the meaning of Romance but illogical sequences rile me up. :o)

message 13: by Esteban (new)

Esteban del Mal I take umbrage, Eh!

My entire life is a clunky witticism.

message 14: by Ellen (new)

Ellen Hilarious, Eh! I should have persevered with this book, but I just couldn't.

message 15: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! So is mine, Esteban. Heavy on the clunky, uneven on the witticisms.

It has its moments, but it's one of many in the wide world of Romance. I don't think you missed anything, Ellen.

message 16: by Caris (new)

Caris You missed someone. :(

message 17: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! Caris wrote: "You missed someone. :("

You forgot the tears.

I fixed it!

message 18: by Caris (new)

Caris That looks more like drool.

*goes to investigate*

And god bless you.

message 19: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! I thought the frown would change the drool into eyewater. Isn't this drool?

Bless me with what? Be more explicit in your heathen statements.

message 20: by Caris (new)

Caris That's drool, too.

Whatever you want, I guess. How about giant clown shoes?

message 21: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! You are incorrect! One is drool, one is eyewater.

Only if I'm also blessed with the feet to fill them. I've been told my toes resemble Vienna sausages, so they'd have to grow into Johnsonville bratwursts.

Hmm. That one gives me a combination "thud" and "ew" feeling.

message 22: by Caris (new)

Caris Uh, yeah. God bless you like that. All sausagey.

message 23: by Lil (new)

Lil Bone I found this to be an extremely poorly written review....dude.

message 24: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! I think so, too. Uh, bub.

I totally need to steal this brilliant prose for a bunch of my reviews, chica! How could such a simple sentence say so much?

message 26: by Sparrow (new)

Sparrow Indubitably.

message 27: by Paquita Maria (new)

Paquita Maria Sanchez Thanks for taking a giant crap on the floor, lil. I'm sowwy it huwt your feewings that somebody didn't wike your fave-oh-weet book. You need a binky, wittle wil?

Eh?! gets fucking trolls now? Goodreads needs an enema. Go dry your eyes on some gif-heavy reviews of even more mindless tripe, you snotty little shit.

message 28: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! Well, I didn't have a very coherent review. Thank goodness my pay grade, self-esteem, and man-harem size isn't tied to the quality of my typed thoughts.

message 29: by Jen (new)

Jen Man harem sizes are never based on that, though. Man harems are based on precise mathematical equations. If I knew them, I would type them here.

message 30: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! Hmm, there would probably be variables for bicycle-movement of the legs, globe-ness of the uh globes.

message 31: by Mary (new)

Mary 'I glare at crockery, too" - left me choking on my cereal...too funny! now I'm torn whether to read this, such conflicting reviews!

message 32: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! Haha, thanks! Despite my quibbles, I thought it was a fun enough read. Plenty of people did love it so definitely don't take the few linked reviews as being the authority on it. If you do read it, let me know what you think!

message 33: by Allie (new)

Allie I'm more than a little upset with every other line in the beginning being about her father, her lack of a soul or her nose.

message 34: by Carol (new)

Carol Well, I enjoyed your review so much that I want to read a book by you. I like your style!

message 35: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! Allie, 2 years late, but we are one.

Carol, thank you! But you must see karen's reviews. And so many others...I was active a couple years back and people cycle through, so look around for others. I know karen still reads&writes up a storm and she's been my favorite for entertainment, thoughtfulness, and incredible recommendations.
