Do you like polls??


One of the best features about this new and improved Blogger, is how easy it is now to add polls!! Since I'm still on the In Death ReRead kick and now I'm getting coworkers to read them too, I thought up some questions about the series for some fun polls and added them to the right.

If you want, you can either answer them on this post or on the poll or even both if you want :)
Or, if you aren't a reader of this series, you can skip this post and move on to the next blogger on you blog hopping trip *g*.

Here are my answers

1) Over five but not since the first one

2) The Relationships (followed by The Romance)

3) I thought Dr. Mira. She makes a great 'mother' for Eve.

4) I picked Summerset. No one can give it to Eve like Summerset can.

5) I like that Roarke helps Eve out so much.

6) I think they will be very interesting parents - but not for a long way down the line.

7) The way things are going - never, never, never!!

And in doing 'research' what is a better place to find things than Wickipedia. Here's a great rundown of many of the characters.

I just received 2 days ago the first 2 books in this series! And i'm pretty excited. I was a bit worried when i realized how many books there was in the series but people seems to still love every now book so i'm hopeful. I've heard so much about Roarke than i can't wait to meet him.

Pattepoilue: You are in for some Most Excellent Reads. I can see why some readers would be intimidated starting this series with so many of them out. But once you get started, they just fly by. I hope you blog about them since I'm really enjoying living them again through the enjoyment of reading other bloggers thoughts.

I voted "are you nuts?" on the last question, not because I think it would ruin the series but because I think Eve really doesn't want to have kids and it's hard enough having them when you do really want them. Perhaps it's being set up for some kind of big change of heart for her in the future, but honestly, I don't think she'd make a good parent. -- willaful

Willaful *laughing* I think Roarke would be the more nuturing of the two - that's for sure.
I figure it would be A LONG way down the road - when she's ready to go behind a desk - which she won't be for years and years. But I think Roarke would make for one hellufa sexy dad *g*

Answered. The last question I voted 'Maybe eventually'. IMO Eve isn't ready yet. I will admit that I think that Roarke gets too involved in Eve's cases *ducks*...but I'm probably the only one :)

Orannia: *g* You're not the only one, that's why I put that question in too. I've read a few commenters say they think he's too involved. I don't know how far you are in the series but even in the final one he still is - but now it's now so much because he's somehow connected, but more because it seems he and Eve work as a pair these days. So it seems to work better now than in the first number of books.

I read somewhere - perhaps on Nora's website? - that Eve and Roarke would not have children. But that was several years ago and plans may have changed.

When I thought about it, I had to agree; they are better off childless. Because Eve throws her whole self into her cases and Roarke has his hands full just tending to her. There's no room for children as they live their lives now, and I can't see Eve's personality changing to that extent.

I voted for Nadine as my favorite secondary female character because I love the way she and Eve go head to head, and yet their relationship continues to grow. Mavis makes my teeth itch, lol.

Carolyn: I've heard that Nora said that too - which is why I'm really of two minds. I know it will mark the end of the series - and I'm not ready to see that any time soon - yet at the same time, Roarke is just so DAMN sexily nurturing......
And Mavis makes my teeth hurt too!! I almost picked Nadine. I love the back and forth between her and Eve too.

Wikipedia claims that Roberts has said the series will end with Eve's pregnancy. --willaful

Kristie (J) said...

Willaful: I've heard that too - which makes it a tough call!

I'm up too Kindred in Death - I'm waiting to reach the top of the library hold list :)

It's just...I don't know..it's like there is no separation...

Orannia: I'm still on the In Death rereading train. Now I've jumped on board Origin in Death. With all the ones I've still yet to reread, I should be just about ready for March when Fantasy in Death comes out!!
