Shannon posts on 11/15/2009 10:20:30 PM I never really got into the Gentry series myself. It wasn't because they were bad; they weren't. But vampires are more my flavor, and I think one of the biggest things that attacts me to Anita is her attitude, and Merry didn't have a lot of that. But I still love the Anita series after all this time, and I'm rereading ST right now. One thing that I would love to see, and some people are going to hate me and some are going to tell me all the reasons why it will never happen, is Anita and Edward do it. Just once. And I believe LKH has said she never sees them getting together, but it seems lately like she wants them to. Edward HAS gotten a lot softer around Anita, and she keeps writing little things like "my Edward" or when the topic of them having sex comes up, she always says "he was only doing it to keep Olaf away" or "I knew he didn't like me that way." Like someone who's protesting too much. Just weird how she's been phrasing things lately.
Teresa posts on 9/19/2009 12:25:51 AM You'd have to read the books to get the plot of the series. It really burns me seeing comments from people that probably haven't even so much as picked up the book they're trying to slam. The Merry Gentry series is one of the best I've read and I've done a lot of reading. I guess some people don't have the imagination to read something truly creative. I think you should probably stick to reading encyclopedias.
mandy posts on 7/14/2009 8:43:01 PM Well I think maybe I've chased everyone away from posting here on this site. That's okay, it's really more of a place for me to vent even if nobody reads or responds at this point. Anyway I was just on LKH's "official Site" reading here blog and I couldn't stop laughing about what she'd written on her new Merry Gentry book. Yea it was funny hearing LKH talk about plots and character development considering the Gentry series hasn't really gone anywhere since book one. I'm pretty sure that I'm done with the Gentry series after not just one but several men managed to impregnate her at once, sorta like a rat. Anyway it irritated me to no end that LKH apparently couldn't suffer the idea of one man being enough hence the rodent-like pregnancy. I myself would have chosen Doyle in the first five seconds of being forced to take on all those men in the first place but that's just me. Alas, I suggest that LKH let her Anita and Gentry series go before she makes them any worse and try creating some new worlds. A fresh start might help her drag her stories out of the smut category.
mandy posts on 7/2/2009 6:38:10 PM Okay. Since nobody posted about the book when I asked, here's my run down. It was bad, it was sit down and cry for the death of the series bad because that one really did finish it off for me. Anita didn't fight in it, she missed the one scene that included violence at all which means that we as the readers didn't get to be there either. Edward has gone soft which for me might have been the worst point of all because of all the characters LKH has created Edward was always the coolest. Then there was more disconnected sex with men who I can't even remember the names of. And thought at least Anita seems to able to admit now that there's no earthly way she can juggle the love of hundreds of men she still doesn't seem to realize that juggling even three is ridiculous. For me this is trumped by the fact that JC and Anita still refer to the there line of powers as love. Whatever they've got going for them love is so not it. As for there plans of making a movie or tv show for the Blake series I'm not opposed as long as the negotiate for LKH to have very limited control over the script because she has lost that spark for writing. I don't think she really has it in her to go back through and do an adaptation of the book onto the big screen, so sad and yet so true. This new book could have been such a huge chance for her to revamp her story, instead there she was in that same old rut. Honestly and this is a first for me because I'm a pretty dedicated series reader I don't even think I'll have the stomach to read whatever she plops out next because this book wasn't even worth putting on hold at the library let alone buying :(
mandy posts on 6/8/2009 8:33:04 PM okay, so the new book is out to buy and read by now i'm still waiting on a copy from the library having learned the hard way that buying her books right away are not the best idea. But just because i'm impatiently waiting it out doesn't mean that I can't get a run down on how the book went from one of you all. Good? Bad? Somewhere in the middle of that? I got the latest out on the comic book, not as good as actually reading the books because it lacks the articulation but it's still tones better than most of her last books.
