I feel I got a clearer image of Jaime in the latest book. In the past, his letters to Jacky were always brief, or seemed so, but in the latest book the author lead us into his world a little more. Jaimy always seemed so very proper, but I guess being stripped of his rank and being imprisoned and beaten forced him to grow up to a Jaimy 2.0!!! I don't think we missed anything, but it seems like we are because we received information about him almost exclusively through letters. Is Jaimy much older than Jacky?
I agree with the heavy in the new Bloody Jack book. I was like...hmmm, okay but I love Jacky and Jaimy-Jaimy even more after this book-he's growing up and showing a tougher side.
So I'm thinking she had a little "exploration" with the other pirate although she denies it to Jaimy, but she still clearly loves him. But is she confused about her sexual identity? She used risk of pregnancy and her confusion about the experience with the other pirate to keep Jaimy at bay (among other things) which I guess is OK since people do struggle with this--I just wasn't expecting it. It does, however, allow the author to dodge Jacky having sexual intercourse.
I was in Maine last week and visited Louis Meyer's art gallery, met his wife and talked to him on the phone! I brought my books with me to have them autographed (after emailing him first for permission to stop by with them) His wife is this tiny buzzing firecracker of a woman in her 60's maybe? but sharp and witty. When I showed up, we talked for awhile and she carried my books out to her car. On her way back in, she was on her cell. She's talking, walks up to me and says, "Here she is! She's rabid!" and hands me the phone! OMG! I'm rabid now? I was so embarrassed! But Mr. Meyer was great. I was only half way through the book, though. If I had finished, I would have had tons of questions about the end. The next book just went off for editing, titled something Golden Dragon. Cool.
More to say, but have to get ready for work.
How did you feel about the book? Your thoughts on Jared? I personally love Richard Allen and Jaimy....and wait...Jared too. I do love those rascally men!
I just picked it up this past weekend! Saturday I'm leaving for Maine for a week, and we'll be going to Bar Harbor where LA Meyer and his wife run their Art Gallery. I've emailed them asking if Mr. Meyer can autograph my collection and his wife said he's hard at work on the next book with the deadline fast approaching, but she'll bring my books home with her and I can pick them up the next day! It will be nice to me his wife Annaje (sp) since she does a lot of historical research for him.
Haha, that's what I hear! Oh my gosh I know!! It's a huge bummer! Once the bell rings at 2:40, i'm out of there and racing up to the bookstore to get my copy. I'll deffinatly be up late reading that baby!
mee tooo!! Collins leaves it at such a cliff-hanger in both books!
My summer break has been an awesome one, yet very busy! I've been doing English all summer, so I haven't had time to do much else. But as for school, I start back the 24th, which is toooo sooon!!! But, the bright side of it is that it's senior year. =) So i'm a little excited.
How are you? It's been so long since I've chatted with you. I tried to read Dragon Tattoo when it first came out and several times after, but I just couldn't get into it-it seemed so dry and I had difficulty focusing. The set up was taking too long. Even though reviews were all glowing, it didn't seem like something I wanted to read. One day I was bored and desperately needed something different and started Dragon Tattoo again and got sucked right in. Now I'm counting the days for The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest. I'm not much for mystery/crime novels, but these have turned into favorites. The second book has even more exposition, but reading about Lisbeth Salander is rewarding. She steals the show.
Lately I've been having trouble finding books that hold my interest. It's been slow going.
I hope all is well with you and happy reading!
