Uh oh, I suspect the heroine is going to have to watch her half-sister marry the hero & suffer nobly for a couple hundred pages. :P

I want Ethel Williams to go off with her bastard baby & be successful & kick ass & give Fitzherbert the middle finger. THIS IS MY DREAM.

She gazed at her image again. I am beautiful, she thought. Then 
she laughed softly.

It's nice to see Constanza giving Skye a break and doing the post-coital fainting. A girl can't do it all herself.

"Although she recalls some things, her loss of memory has wiped out all carnal knowledge. She knows nothing and has no prejudices."

I should have known that if anyone could get re-virginated, it'd be Skye. :P

I like the story, but John Lee's Shatneresque cadence is driving me nuts. Love The Shat, but there's a reason why I wouldn't listen to an 1000 page audiobook by him. O__o Not sure if I'll be able to get through this - might have to toss it for the printed version.

Ack, the narrator's diction is...audiosyncratic. Laborious diction. Robotic cadence. Bah. :(

She felt joy surge through her with the knowledge that Darragh Burke was, for all her noble breeding, no beauty.

I'd forgotten just how much of an obnoxious pretty person Skye is. :P

He has created his own mythology. This is a good thing, because, to a far greater extent than is usually possible for any man, Vladimir Putin has communicated to the world directly what he would like to be known about him and how he would like to be seen.

So we have that to thank for the "shirtless in the wild" photo spreads. Mystery solved. :P

It's been awhile since I watched the Rudolph Valentino movie, so I don't remember how it all ends. Loving these super-abridged dramatizations, especially with a phenomenal cast.

Goodwin simply reports actions and quotes letters without trying to psychoanalyze the players too much. So I'm torn about whether TR's 1912 run was born of an ethical call to lead the progressive wing of the Republicans or the ego trip of a bored ex-prez. A bit of both, probably. Taft kinda whizzed the progressive agenda down his leg & TR was rightly pissed off.

Why don't I remember these tense teen dilemma of wanting to go gold-panning with Garr Garwin despite parental objections of unsafe terrain?? Seems like a childhood book memory that should have stayed with me. :P

OK I admit I skipped a couple tracks because the Pinchot-Ballinger slapfight was going on way too long. I know it's an important flash point in Republican politics, but it was reading like a boring book report. O__o

"The danger to American democracy lies not in the least in the concentration of administrative power in responsible & accountable hands. It lies in having the power insufficiently concentrated, so that no one can be held responsible to the people for its use." --TR's outgoing speech to Congress (who were pearl-clutchers about his "disrespect" of their holy body, as well as being all-around corrupt fuckweasels)

The helpless little girl he had raped & tormented & thrown out of her home all those years ago had come back & taken her revenge. Every time he thought of that his stomach burned with bitterness as if he had drunk vinegar.

Bwahaha. I've waited 868 pages for this. Fuck you, William Hamleigh. Fuck you with a rusty mace. :P

Aliena, you have a perfectly perfect prior you could try to corrupt in the ways of fleshly love, and yet you go off skylarking in the name of True Lurve. PRIORITIES. But I ship Philip with just about everybody, so I won't weep in my beer for long. (Philip/cathedral OTP!)
