Have you finished?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 9th, 2009 12:52 pm (UTC)
Yes, though I will need a little time to put my thoughts in order. I can go back and read everyone else's comments now!

I could be right about the amount of lipgloss on the model (it's ASTOUNDING, sansa!)

Yes.

Chat has also decided that one of Mae's shirts has a ninja riding a peacock.

This seems highly likely to me. And I am pleased to see that Sarah internalised all of the 'But a cube has six sides, you mean a tetrahedron' comments from that fic she wrote ;-)

right about what?

y'know what has me confused about it?

the cover model sort of vaugly kind of looks like Tom Welling and the title has lex in it.

--full of shimmery marvels and bountiful thunder--???? huh westerfeld likes it? i like his stuff, should i give this thing a try?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 9th, 2009 01:10 pm (UTC)
AHAHAHAHAHA! Yes, you have uncovered the secret! It's really Smallville fanfic written by Leonardo!

(I love the way your brain works!)

I was right about something I suspected from page 58, though not in a negative 'that was so predictable' way; while it was predictable, it was interestingly so. It is worth giving it a go.

Lmao. Took you long enough. ;P

My free hour a day is no help when it comes to reading books!
calanthe_fics on June 9th, 2009 03:16 pm (UTC)
Does this just reinforce that you are astute or imply the book is predicatble?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 9th, 2009 04:05 pm (UTC)
Obviously the former;-)

The particular plot point is telegraphed, but I think it needs to be because otherwise large swathes of the book would not make sense. I think I will have to reread it to get my head fully around what I think about it, but it's worth a second reading.

Yay! I had to stop myself commenting on that post so I didn't give spoilers!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 9th, 2009 04:03 pm (UTC)
Aside from every other clue, it was the only reason that such a word-obsessed writer would have such a monosyllabic hero ;-)

I don't know what it says about me, but I was truly surprised by the end revelation. Then I read all the other postings and realized that most people kind of figure out way before I did. Maybe that is one of the reasons why I could never be a private detective.

I really like the book but I have some issues with Nick's brother.
Heather: Readingfaynia on June 9th, 2009 04:54 pm (UTC)
HA!

I had totally spoiled myself before even buying the book, for I have no restraint

I've been waiting all weekend for you to finish! All I wanted to do was talk to you about it! LOL. I finished it Saturday afternoon and whined very loudly in your general direction so you'd hurry up already, did you hear me?

XD

*goes off to plot more Jamie/Nick despite really not having the time to write that shit*

Here is the Finnish cover of the book.
I think it looks really good.

Ah!! I have to read this book - Dymocks assure me that it will be in on Monday. However I can't get to the bookstore until Friday (bloody work). :( So another week gone without reading it! :(

I am impressed at your astuteness! I just thought he was an insensitive arsehole. *g*
