Today’s noontime chat is here as well as at J. Kaye’s Book Blog. Make sure to head over there and see J. Kaye’s final thoughts on the book.
As you can probably tell from the discussions to this point I am loving the book. I’ve still got about 100 pages to go. I had planned to have it finished today but family matters came up (pops is still in the hospital) and I didn’t make my goal. However, there will be a full review of the book up sometime this weekend as soon as I’ve completed it.
Now, on to final thoughts. I am totally enjoying the book. I love the story and the writing. Unlike J. Kaye, I was hooked from the very beginning on the story and I love the history. J. Kaye brought up an interesting point and that is that maybe people who love historical fiction view the book diffferently and I think that’s probably true. For me, the historical aspect of the book is enhanced by the fictional story surrounding it.
My favorite character remains to be Kate. She’s now at Powder Mote being hidden by Francis and his father but she’s been seen there and now I’m beside myself wanting to get back to the story and see what’s going to happen. I’m also partial to Francis and am rooting for him and Kate-another aspect of the novel that I’ve enjoyed and I can’t wait to see what transpires at the end for the two of them, if anything.
Stay tuned for my full review this weekend. Otherwise, if you’ve missed any of the chats along the way, here they are:
Day 1 here at J. Kaye’s Book Blog
Day 2 here at Peeking Between the Pages
Day 3 here at J. Kaye’s Book Blog
Day 4 here at Peeking Between the Pages
Day 5 here at J. Kaye’s Book Blog and the above post.
Thanks to all who joined us. I wish J. Kaye would have taken as much pleasure from the book that I am but you know that’s what makes this blogging business great-we all have different opinions and likes and dislikes when it comes to books and that’s what makes it so awesome to have discussions like this.
