Book Selection of the Month (April '07)

My Trollop and I did a lot of meditation, asking King Leonidas for his guidance on which book is the best for our next BBC discussion. We considered hitting the classics; imagine, the Bitches and Mistress Austen... verra interesting, dontcha think? *g* But then, och, *gasp* there’s this other classic that kept screaming in our poor ears, pumping its fists on the air, demanding to finally have its proper place and very own official discussion on our wee bonny blog!

Aye, at first we’re set on choosing either Pride and Prejudice or Persuasion; but at the last minute, er, well... Bitches can change their minds! *hmph* That’s why, like it or no’, we proudly give ye:

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon!!! Here are the questions ye shouldna forget (especially ye Sassenachs) while readin’ the book. (D’ye love sayin’ “Sassenach” wi’ feelin’? :P)
  • What was your very first impression of Nasty Bastard, er, Jamie? Would you have jumped and humped oh yummilicious him immediately, or hit him on the balls with an axe?
  • What did you think of Claire’s story to Colum about how she ended up with the Scots? Would you have believed her, or push her out of the castle’s top tower window?
  • Jamie calls Claire “Mistress Waterweed.” How do you think Claire feels about that? Slippery?
  • What did you feel when Jamie beat Claire? Do you think he should have done more, like gag her, tie her to a tree with flesh-eating bugs and then beat her with a stick?
  • What’s your impression of Jack Randall? He’s an evil man but he’s also smart and witty, verra funny and verra handsome. *sigh* Do you think it’s he, not Adulteress Claire, who is Jamie’s uber true love?
  • Why is Jamie so attractive to gay men?
I first read this (oh, I do love poetry!) when Jamie marry Claire. It always moves me *sniff* I ken it’ll inspire ye too, my wee lassies:

Then let amorous kisses dwell
On our lips, begin to tell
Stick your pole in my holy hole
A thousand and a hundred score
A hundred and a thousand more.

Oh yeah! There is a G-d, a snow-ball in hell, and all other things anomaly.

I think I cannot say Sassenach with a straight face, but only because I don't have dear Jamie's accent. You gotta have the accent and the burr to say it right.

So Harlot, are you now going to finish reading the whole damn book now?

OMG, I am so beside myself with excitement!

OMG, you had me there for a moment! Could it be that our dear BBs who hate Jamie with a passion actually going to lead a discussion about him? Apparently not. LOL!

Harlot, that's funny!:D I thought, Outlander? Am I in the right place? Is this The Book Bitches blog? This ain't right... oh ... yep, there's my wrong kind of man. LOL

I've never read P&P or Persuasion so whichever of the two is fine with me.

Oh and I love the questions for Outlander! LOL!

OK so I've been without a comp for 2 weeks cause I moved and the idiots who packed stuff lost cords for the comp. I'm working 2 jobs now so I haven't had time to look thorough boxes for them.

I'm using the library comp on my lunch so I got to be fast. wish I could read all your post but it will be a goal for later! LOL.

Few questions about the lingo in this book.

Lager-and-Light? I know lager since I am a beer aficionado but what's with the light?

Brandy-and-Splash? Splash of what?

Pint-of-Bitter? Regular beer full of hops?

What the hells does "Stiff as a Lot's wife" mean?

What is a "mac"? It was drizzling out and she was soaking wet because she forgot to bring her "mac". Is that an umbrella or a rain coat?

Who is Bonnie Prince Charlie?

Whoa, this totally blowed my mind. XD Good job, you guys. I really thought it was true at first.

OK now I feel like a big asshole! As I've said, I have no computer set up right now and I only scanned for the book selection for this month, read the tite and hurried back to work (I was using the library computer on my lunch break.)

So, I checked out Outlander and I'm to the "Slippery as a waterweed" point (almost half way through) and I came back to the library to read the questions for the book and to read your articles and posts since I had a little more time.

This is what I get for not reading and just acting! Well, I'm going to finish this damn book now, anyway, and hope I can read the real BBC in time.

You wankers got me! Happy April's Fools Day to you bitches!

:P Well, are you liking OUTLANDER? Don't you love the questions? :P Anyway, i hope you'll read PERSUASION too. ;)

I was liking it up to the point that Jamie beat her with a belt. I would of slit his fucking throat! Then she forgives him without making him suffer in return?!? THEN she "understands" and agrees she got what she deserved?

Obviously her head is in her ass and when he beat ass with the belt she got brain damage.

I got JA book from the library and it is tiny so I will be able to read it before the 30th.

Your questions are FAN-FUCKING-TABULOS!

Clare IS an adulteress whore, Jamie IS a cock attracting woman beater, the men are all short (turn off) and J. Randall IS a fuck-stick.

I'm going to finish what I started but I'm not really impressed.

P.S. I also HATE the implied sex scenes.
