Yep, Anna of Anna's Book Blog has her thoughts on Broken Wing posted. Be sure to check them out.
And before I start - this is going to be a two-parter for two reasons - one) because it's just so long and two) well - you will see at the end :)
KristieJ: So *g* speaking of books - this brings me to ............. Broken Wing! What did you think of it?
KatieBabs: I thought it was pretty good, really enjoyed it and adore Gabriel
KristieJ: Pretty good - Katie - you're a tough sell
KatieBabs: I felt James put a little too much torturing to the point of me going, oh my god, what more can she do? But I loved Gabriel and Sarah's romance
KristieJ: LOL - I didn't think she did nearly the torturing as some authors - Sherrilyn Kenyon for example - but I agree with you - Gabriel and Sarah's romance was so very sweet - but not in a treacly sweet way. More in a touching way
KatieBabs: the kissing!
KristieJ: They were both - but especially Gabriel - were so innocent. LOL - I know you really enjoyed the kissing. I thought it very tender too - that's why in my review I said he was virginal. Because he was when it came to that aspect
(at this point I should point out that there were a number of pauses before Katie got back to 'chat')
KatieBabs: oops sorry was watching my man on CSI. Grissom drool
KatieBabs: William Peterson.
Judith James almost writes like Robin Schone but not as erotic, well it was sexy but not omg they did what??
KristieJ: I started a Robin Schone book after I put this one on the shelf but it didn't seem to have the same kind of - I guess poignancy is the word
KatieBabs: Schone's books are hard to get through. What is the word about them?
KristieJ: LOL - I don't know, I've never read any of them
KatieBabs: they are very dark sexually, tortured men
KristieJ: What did you think of the second part of the book - the part with Gabriel's journey?
KatieBabs: I thought it was very interesting, but a bit rushed. I would have loved Sarah to go find him. Could you imagine that?
*****SPOILER HERE SO I HID IT*****
KristieJ: She did go to find him. She found him in London. He was even more lost then
KatieBabs: No, I mean search for him way out...I was so happy Gabriel didn't ho around
KristieJ: I was too. I thought it very clever of him - the story he used
KatieBabs: I liked his buddy
KristieJ: He was good wasn't he? So savoir faire (probably spelled wrong) not matter what the situation
KatieBabs: very sly
KristieJ: And quite the hound - that one scene Gabriel walked in on *chuckle*
KatieBabs: heh heh
KatieBabs: I am going to go to bed, snooze time
At this point I confess to a bit of confusion
KristieJ: yea - I think I will too
KatieBabs: but we should do an AIM chat for Broken Wing
(pause while I scratched my head)
KristieJ: well ....... - I thought we were.
KatieBabs: oh! ...... lol
KristieJ: I think I'll catch the tail end of ER - Apparently it's Abby’s last night
KatieBabs: I will be in bed dreaming of the days of George on ER
KristieJ: And Luca for me. Before there was RICHard - there was Luca
KristieJ: I'll save what we have and maybe we will try another time
KatieBabs: this weekend?
KristieJ: I have to work Saturday and then I'm going to a surprise birthday panama party after that - but I'll be around on Sunday after I get home
KatieBabs: will see on Sunday then
KristieJ: Oakely dokely. Night for tonight
KatieBabs: sleep tight
So - no need to comment on Broken Wing because we did indeed 'chat' about it on Sunday where we get much more into it. That post will be up soon.
However - feel free to comment on Grissom - since *laughing* he obviously was more on Katie's mind. Or who you like better - George Clooney as Dr. Doug Ross or Goran Visnjic as Dr. Luca Kova.
