Hey-ho! I just wanted to say that I've replied to your thoughts on the vengeance thread, and to encourage you not to be put off by Pike, who is very obviously a troll looking to be as nasty as possible. I value your contributions, as I'm sure do all the others, even if we might not always be in agreement!
Still working on a reply! about the music. How are you today?
Hey it is nice to hear from you again. I don't remember saying that The Bounty wasn't holding my interest but it was a long time ago so it is possible that I had trouble getting into it at first but I really enjoyed the book.
dark muse! I don't know why I was away for so long...I have always loved this site and I am just now back and loving it all over again!
im looking at a little message history where you say you started mutiny on the bounty but early on it wasn't holding your interest. almost five years after the fact, im curious how that turned out!
Thank you for letting me know!
I am so glad that I am not the only one. I keep hearing everyone rave about what a brilliant work of genius it is and how amazing the writing is, and what a masterpiece it is, and honestly I personally just don't see it.
I am generally a fan of unconventional first person narrators, and disturbing books, but to be quite frank Humbert as a narrator is actually a bit dull at times, and seems to just go on insignificant rambling tangents of which I find little interest in.
I am having trouble getting through the book because it just does not compel me to want to keep reading. It really does not hold my interest all that much.
No I have not read Belinda, but I think I might have a copy of it, but I am not certain if I do have that one
Hey, haven't seen you around in a while, but I thought I would drop in and tell you I have started reading The Bounty Triligoy, I have only recently begun, so I am not that far into it yet. One of the things I do enjoy so far about the books though, is that I find them quite accessable. I have read some of Melvilles sea-related short fiction, and found it tedius and strenous to read, but I find Nordhoff and Norman Hall really quite easy. I was a little worried that the story might be too bogged down with technicual termenology, but they do a good job and balancing story, characters, along with a lot of the more technichal aspects of sailing.
Please join on our discussion for The Phantom of the Opera in 'On Broadway' social group. I read The Phantom of Manhattan years ago...when it first came out.
