Salutations! My name is Owyn, and I'm going to be at your Fierce Reads event at the Boulder Book Store. In order to prepare for such awesomeness, I read your book Of Poseidon.
Here is the review: 97 Aquariums out of 97.
Your book is pretty freaking fantastic.
And now, I shall list unto you the reasons I think so.
Firstly, GALEN IS SO ATTRACTIVE WTF. I mean, I know he's like part fish but I haven't felt this way since Augustus Waters. He's dreamy, and protective, and strong, and hot and I already need to calm down but I can't because he is:
And then the dialogue was hilarious. I LOL'd. Here are some of my favorite little nuggets of funny:
"'There's nothing wrong with your daughter, Mrs. McIntosh. I said we're not sleeping together. I didn't say I didn't want to.'" Bonus awkward points since Galen said that to Emma's mom.
"'Dr. Milligan, you know as far as these things go, I'm pretty ignorant. For my sake, could you just give us the idiot version?'" -- Galen
*Emma just ran into Galen* "'Uh, we didn't get your name. Did you get his name, Emma?'" (Chloe) asks...
'I tried, Chloe. But he wouldn't tell me, so I tackled him, ' I say, rolling my eyes."
'You can put me down now.'
'I'm not ready yet.' He tightens his hold.
'You don't have to hold-'
'Emma? Can you hear me?'
'Uh, yes, I can hear you fine. I just can't see-'
'That's a relief. Because for a minute there, I thought maybe you couldn't hear me when I said I'm not ready yet.'" Emma and Sassy Galen.
I just have one problem: you used the word "mate" frequently in the verbular sense.
That word is like my "moist" it just makes me very uncomfortable when it's used as a verb. But I still love the book!
I am very excited to meet you and I can't wait to read Of Triton.
