Book Inspiration: Midnight Bayou
Okay, I admit it... I like Nora Roberts. Well, most of the time anyway. I won't read anything that's not somehow supernatural or otherwise interesting in a not-so-mundane way. So I picked up Midnight Bayou the other day and I'm really enjoying it. It's been a long time since I was able to get into a book so easily. The characters are well written and I seem to be flying through the chapters with ease instead of skimming through painfully. As I continued to read, I began to get some artistic inspiration as I immersed myself in a world of Cajun accents and Louisiana charm. But then (oh no! look away! the horror!) I saw this...
Guess where that inspiration went? Right out of wherever Jerry O'Connell's big Irish head came in. Does anyone else think he's just a magoo? Now I have to make sure I don't see Jerry's all-American mug every time I sit down to read a chapter. He was good on Sliders (or rather Sliders was good on him) and that's about that. No offense to Jerry's fans, but he's just the farthest thing from my type.
Yeah, I'll keep reading and see how it ends. Heck, I might even check out the movie though I can only hope it will be marginally interesting. After all, it's on Lifetime. For now, I'm just glad I don't have to force myself to read the book. It's well done and a fun read. I recommend it for supernatural romance fans and Nora Roberts fans in general. No amount of Jerry O'Connell can ruin it.
