Finished the book a month ago and I liked it. Hesitate to write a review because I will be very biased due to my personal experience. My own fat her had a military background and in some ways I do relate with Jarrett; Considering the fact that myself I am no longer in speaking term with my own father I do understand Jarrett. I am looking forward for a sequel if that will be the case . If not any book you will produce next will be fine with me because I like the way are written.

Thank you so much Magda! This is super late but I appreciate that. Yeah, none of the relationships in that book are easy or comfortable, and I'm glad it resonated with you. (Not glad that your relationship with your father is rough...hopefully you know what I mean).

Sorry if any of this has been addressed before, but I came up with a few questions while I was flipping through Warchild last night. I landed on the part where the jets have been taken aboard the Khan and find out that Jos was a spy. While their reactions were understandable, I have to wonder what the aftermath was like with Jos staying on the Mac? They pretty much left him to die, Aki included - he might not have made it off the Khan if not for Evan. By Burndive everyone is getting along again, and Aki's getting into fights to stick up for Jos. I wondered what the interim must have been like. Did any of the jets apologize to Jos for how they reacted, or did Jos just let it slide without holding any kind of grudge? I'm really curious as to what life was on like on Mac between Warchild and Burndive.

Their leaving him to die wasn't PURELY intentional, they were still in battle mode and figured he could fend for himself. It was callous but at that point they were still on a pirate ship and they weren't going to haul his ass for him. In Book 4 you'll definitely see a little more of how that dynamic played out and maybe in an omake I'll go back and write it specifically instead of just implying it, but in the end of Warchild when Erret accepts him, that was a signal that the others would too (his friends at least...because we saw in Burndive not everyone liked Jos - they just didn't get in his face because of the captain and also because he could likely kill anyone in armed or unarmed combat if it came to that and they know it.) The implication was once Jos had Erret and the Captain on his side, the others would either stay out of his way or - as the case with the people that were his friends - try to understand him and give him a chance.

Erret decided to forgive him simply because the Captain does (he is that loyal), and because despite how he acts, he has a huge capacity for compassion and he understood Jos once he thought about it.

At the moment I am somewhere in the middle of the first season. Yeah, it is interesting for being something totally different, which always is nice. And  Katey Sagal & Ron Perlman are a delight in themselves. But, yes, Charlie Hunnam is neither too hard on the eyes nor is Jax' character without appeal.
What I wanted to ask, am I just stupid or was there anyone else wondering for the first few episodes who the hell this "Sam Crow" guy is they always kept mentioning? It took quite long until the penny finally dropped, SAMCRO, aha!  Grin

Almost everyone in this forum said that Ryan is acting like a spoiled brat and maybe it is but I see it also as an abused child as well. Being ignored by both parents it is a form of abuse which not always is recognized as such. It is not like beating or like being an orphan but it does leave scars. So I do understand some of his action. Also he had to witness a lot of his parents arguments which it is not nice for a child to witness. I know it was loved by his parents but did not receive enough of their attention.

Lori was better int he comics too. I think her being so unlikeable was a side effect of letting Shane live so much longer.

Also because the writers kept on making her do incredibly stupid things.  Like drive off by herself to search for Rick(? I don't remember exactly who).  Who would do something like that in the middle of a zombie apocalypse?

In a slightly related note, I just read the book World War Z which was an interesting take on the zombie apocalypse scenario (though this should probably be moved to a books thread).

As for the comic vs tv show, it's interesting how some of the characters look completely the same while others are so different.  I think I like how Carol looks better in the tv show, and the tv Governor seems to fit his character better (though that may be because he seems to be more affably evil in the show, whereas in the books, he's much more obvious.  Though having never read the comics, I'm not sure).

The Governor really is more camp-evil in the comics than he is in the tv show as in if Andrea were attracted to him in the comics, I would say she was nuts. XD He's basically a mustache twirling villain... and even more perverse...

Carol is so much better in the tv show than in the comics! AND she has a much better reason for being sad (Sophia is still alive in the comics).

Since Jorah is in Danys storyline, I never had a problem distinguish him from others...  Well, okay usually it's not forgetting faces that is my problem, but names.

Apropos faces, I thought you'd maybe be interested in how the characters from The Walking Dead look in the comics? Smiley


I never really had a problem distinguishing Jorah from the others (for the same reason) I just never could remember his name.  The other old bearded guys though...

Oh yeah.  I think I watched that before Game of Thrones.  Or I just didn't notice because I get pretty much all of the male supporting characters confused on GoT.  They all look the same as at least one other character.
