The lack of characterization killed this for me. I didn’t see the relationship to Jane Eyre that the main character kept referencing.

This had a lot of potential and the prose is quite nice, but the characters didn’t make up for the slow plot.

Mel How have you been?


message 105: by Scribble

Scribble Orca Hey Cory - all the best for 2013 and in particular with your writing!


message 104: by Mel

Mel You know you're really started to influence my reading tastes and writing. I like that.


message 103: by Mel

Mel I pretty much stopped watching anime. Occasionally I might decide to watch Paranoia agent though, which by the way is a must see and I think you might enjoy it.
If I do happen to go back to fiction writing I'd rather steer clear of the YA market. It just seems to have been conquered by morons. I just hope Adult fiction steers clear of the moron-domination. Although the fact that '50 shades of grey' has become a popular adult novel is causing me to have second thoughts about that...
Maybe nothing is sacred anymore?


message 102: by Mel

Mel I am not, unfortunately. My inner author has pretty much been hit by a truck filled with acid, dead babies and so on, so I have barely any creative juices flowing. I don't know if it's just really bad writer's block or not, but it's keeping the story on hold indefinitely. Good to see you still active in your passions as a writer. So you're hoping to get into the YA market or...?


message 101: by Mel

Mel Good to see you're still active. How have you been?

Helen Thank you for adding me and your support.

LTTT has glowing reviews and I wonder what you'll think of it. Break...eh, it was okay for a debut, and A Solitary Blue sounds good. Sucks about Vera Dietz, but maybe next time. The Spectacular Now should keep you satisfied (hopefully!) for a while. :)

Cory Come on. Reagan, as in possessed demon Reagan. No cheating. If Toph bent the demon to the middle of the earth, satan would only send the demon back up and either break Toph's arms and legs, or possess her.

Though, yes, personality wise, Toph wins.

And I probably have way too much time on my hands if I'm actually debating this D:


message 67: by John

John Egbert Ahahaha, this is where you have it wrong: I will cheat and say that we are talking about Reagan, not her demon, in which Toph wins. Besides, even with the demon Toph could send the demon 50000 miles underground and get away in time to warn everybody. So Toph still wins.

I will stay by Toph's side no matter what.

Really? Come on.

A demon from hell vs an Earthbender. Reagan could throw up on Toph, summon satan, and possess Aang to create total chaos. She wins hands down.

Oof. Wasn't Year One good? I remember setting it down when I was reading it and I couldn't help but smile at the thought of Gordon being such a BADASS!

I liked The Dark Knight Strikes Again and The Dark Knight Returns, and (embarrassingly) admit that I totally cried during the last Alfred scene where he says, "Goodbye, sir" (I don't know if you remember what I'm talking about). I thought it was a pretty innovative idea to pull them into the future where age takes a toll on their withered and battered bodies, and where they're forced to overcome both personal and actual demons. Plus, the intermingling of the aged superheroes was pretty cool. Haha

I'll admit, though, the whole Robin story was just...I don't know, it felt like a last minute thought of "Hey, know who would be cool as the villain?" Totally understand where you're coming from in your thoughts on this though. I hated the girl robin character and found her so irritating, I found myself hoping that she would get killed off.


message 59: by Cory

Cory Torie wrote: "Hey! I was just comparing books with a bunch of my friends and was just wondering why you didn't like "The Dark Knight Strikes Again" and "The Dark Knight Returns." I could totally understand how..."

Eh, not only was the art not up to par with Batman: Year One, but it felt like Frank Miller jumped the shark. Especially in The Dark Knight Strikes Again. That scene with Wonder Woman/Superman, Batman being able to beat up Superman, Robin going insane... ugh. He abandoned all logic and credibility to write a parody that made little to no sense. I don't think it's as bad as All Star Batman and Robin, but he lost my respect with that. He tried so hard to make a radical statement against superheroes that he failed in the exact opposite way that Alan Moore did with Watchmen.

Hopefully, that answers the question. It's been almost a year and a half since I've read them. But hey, I don't like a lot of comics that others do. I can't stand Alan Moore or Jeph Loeb, despite their popularity.


message 58: by Torie

Torie Hey! I was just comparing books with a bunch of my friends and was just wondering why you didn't like "The Dark Knight Strikes Again" and "The Dark Knight Returns." I could totally understand how it's not everyone's cup of tea, but was just wondering why it's not yours? You have awesome taste in books, btw (especially since we have so many in common. Hahhaa)
