Jace is the one role I did want to see Alex P in. I think he'd be just about perfect in that role, definitely. I just hope that by saturating him in a million roles won't take away from him finally playing the one role we've all wanted him in.

9277 I felt like everything was happening fast because thats how it all came out. Fast, in a rush, all at once. She did that on purpose. The straw that broke the camels back and caused all the secrets to come rushing out at once.

9277 I don't mean that they're in alot of movies (like Matt Damon). I mean that these actors essentially blew up overnight and now they are Hollywoods spotlight people. Rob P, more then Alex P, for sure, but Alex is getting there fast. Between Beastly, I am Number 4, Mortal instruments, possibly Hunger Games... Alex Pettyfer has become every movie productions first pick to play a blonde book hero and it's moving into overkill for me.

I'm just stating how I feel, but they're both giving me the same feeling that a overplayed song on the radio does. I roll my eyes and turn the station.

Which is too bad, because I actually do think Rob P is a good actor. And I think that he's trying hard to make the world see him as a serious and legitimate. I hope it works out.

I haven't got an opinion on Alex P's acting. I don't think we've seen him in anything that really stretches his ability yet. I'll reserve judgement until he does a 'Gangs of New York' type of movie. Something with true substance. Until then, he's just a sexy YA action actor, in my opinion.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I just don't want casting to pick people just because they're popular. I want them picked because they suit the role, and preferably someone relatively new and fresh.

Not that what I want will have any bearing on production at all, hahahahahaha.

9277 I didn't read them all either, Dee. I loved Echo and didn't feel lost at all.

I'm still excited to go and read the LJG books and reread though, because I can see how it would add to the Percy/LJG stuff.

9277 I may not have been so upset about K Heigl as Claire if she wasn't already going to be Stephanie Plum, lmao. I know they're very different, but they're two of my personal favorites. So my opinion stems mostly from my own feelings of Heigl overload.

This is why I'm against Alex Pettyfer or Rob P playing anything in the role either. I'm just tired of seeing them all in our faces.

I also feel like throwing Heigl in there for financial ratings is a cop out. Harry Potter didn't have some in your face actor to play one of the kids. They had big names in secondary roles. Push for someone famous for geilis or Dougal, give us real amazing talent for the main characters.

I just fear them putting in actors like Heigl and it then becoming one of her 'bad' movies.

9277 Everybody grieves differently, and alot of times people can't fathom how someone else handles it. Those who are noisy are thought to be faking, those who grieve silently are thought to not care as much.

9277 I think that Jamie will forgive Claire rather quickly. He'll be hurt and stuff, but he's not going to separate from her.

I think he'll have a harder time forgiving LJG.

When you think about she married LJ so as to protect not only herself, but her family as well.It certainly wasn't out of love. If you recall in Outlander she did the same thing when she..."

I agree Carren! I didn't fault her for marrying LJG, she was doing it to protect Marsali and the kids first and foremost. As far as them sleeping with each other, they were both grief stricken and drunk. They both thought Jamie was dead and in their pain they connected. It wasn't the best way to express themselves, but it wasn't like she had an affair. They were trying to keep a connection to Jamie through the other persons grief and body.

I just can't wait to read Jamie's reaction.

9277 She said that there will be a book 9? After every book I worry that it'll be the last.
Mar 16, 2011 08:36AM

9277 I think it's best to read all of them first.
Mar 16, 2011 07:42AM

9277 I can't remember when she guessed it would come out, honestly. She said one a year for the next three years.

Per her website, she says Scottish Prisoner will maybe be out late 2011. She guesses Outlander book 8 to be in 2012. So that leaves the 2nd Companion to be probably in 2013. Which makes sense because she said the Companion will include book 8.

9277 I love that part too! I thought it was hilarious.

Then again, I love the "'how does a hedgehog make love? Very slowly.' Now we know how old that one is." quote too. I giggle every time I read it.

9277 There are references to Jamie in the LJG books. She also has a new one coming out soon called LJG and the Scottish Prisoner. It's going to be about Jamie.

"“There’s certainly another of the Lord John books,” Gabaldon reveals. That novel, to be called Lord John and the Scottish Prisoner, delves into John’s unrequited passion for Outlander star Jamie Fraser."

9277 I love Fergus, I love that mischeivious smile he's had since he was a kid.

9277 Exactly! Jenny was always one of my favorites. She's not all that different from Claire. There were many times Jamie accused Claire of not having a gentle hand because she was so focused on taking care of him that she forgot to be tender. And can you imagine the things Claire would have said to Jenny if Jamie was dying and she thought that there was a chance Jenny could save him?! Those Fraser women are strong, even if we don't agree with their actions.
Mar 15, 2011 07:47AM

9277 I agree with that.
Mar 15, 2011 07:44AM

9277 I always loved Jenny. She did things that got me angry, but most of the time I could understand where she was coming from. She's not perfect, but the glory of DG's writing is that nobody is. Each of her characters is flawed, some more then others. Jenny was strong, she was the glue that bound that family together. She saved both Ian and Jamie's lives through her stubborness alone. I admire her.
Mar 15, 2011 07:41AM

9277 Yes, she does. We always seem to come back to it, lmao.
Mar 15, 2011 07:34AM

9277 She knew that Ian wouldn't ask because he didn't feel as though he'd be worth anything. She wanted Jamie to make the offer so that it would make Ian feel as though he was important. She wanted Ian to know his worth from his Laird. I thought it was touching, and I thought she was right. I think Jamie asking Ian to come with him and Ian saying that he would stay behind to guard his 'weaker side' was an exceptionally touching moment that wouldn't have happened if Jenny hadn't asked Jamie to do it.
Mar 15, 2011 07:31AM

9277 I don't hate her. I think in the end, Claire doesn't hate her. But this is an argument we've had over and over in this group, hahahaha, no matter how much we bicker we can't convince the otherside to see the light.
