Holy crap. This book exhausts me. It's deliciously intense. I have to reread certain things three times before they sink in.
Um, is it me, or do you want to SMACK these 16th century fellows for talking about Diana RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER? She totally doesn't count in most of their eyes. And I love how they all throw around "Oh I thought you would be bedding _______ (insert well dressed little tart's name here)." Um...HELLO??? Do ANY of you have any manners? My God, it's maddening! I'd want to slap them all in their Elizabethan faces! Except Hal; he's a sweetie.
|Queen Elizabeth I - in death. |
Don't stare now...she was vain and
will come back and haunt your ass.
|Christopher Marlowe. Isn't he |
fantastic? What a snotty little
queen. I think I love him.
Ashmole 782: Oooooh y'all...can you IMAGINE going back to the 16th century to scout out info about this thing? The whole thing is so scrumptious, I can't even contain myself. I just wish all the house guests would go busy themselves with a foxhunt or something so
|Roanoke: The Lost Colony. |
I've been freaked out by this story
for years. I can barely read the Wiki.
Holy crap - it's like Marty McFly meets Edward Cullen (with a shitload more centuries on him and the dinero to go with it.)
OK I am sorry to scram...but I have some free time and a quiet house.
MUST GO READ!
