OKay, my husband already read this while I finished my last one and I can t wait to find out what all the chuckling was about Plus he says Jacky gets worse and worse and he s concerned about my hero worship with her Oh goody I can t wait to devour this book I finished it Once again, I couldn t put it down and although I want to scold her sometimes too, I love Jacky I laugh right out loud while I read these books and I love that Wouldn t this be a great movie series I d go Hmmmm I wonder who I wo [...]
Okay, so it wasn t as good as I hoped, but it was not as much of a disappointment as In the Belly of the Bloodhound I think I liked the overall story about as much as the first book, but something that the other books have was missing.I think it might be the relationships Jacky makes, because really the only people she meets and you care about at all are Jean Paul whom I find rather pathetic, anyway and Bordot It was kind of cool catching up with Davy who is much mature now , Jared, and Tink, a [...]
This is the sixth book in this series and I think the funnest one so far Jacky Faber is a hilarious character and I thought that she just gets better with each book I also felt that you could see this series coming to an end maybe and I liked that.These books are written for the young adult age but I m not sure I agree with that They are at times a bit grown up I feel If you have teens that you might suggest these to, I would as a parent read them first and then decide.
Oh Jacky, your life is never calm I can t believe I ve spent the last weekend just reading about it My poor kids haven t seen me and Ricky even knows who Jacky is since I reference her in my everyday conversations So, this book was great but not my favorite I loved the first half, I mean, come on, Jared Joseph was in it I liked the men on the boat with her and was interested with the plot I think I could have done without all the fighting and spying in France I think there were too many paragrap [...]
Another winner Thank you L.A Meyer I was almost going to give up after the last book Obviously, I did not enjoy it as much as I should have for a Bloody Jack book This one makes it up As usual, Jacky does not lack her horde of admirers This time, she seems a little too adventurous for a normal teenager Or maybe not, what do I know There is the previously introduced Joseph Jared, the newcomer, Jean Paul, who gets pretty lucky with Jacky, Randall Trevalyne, remember book 2 , and finally, our favor [...]
Kaherine Kellgren has officially ruined audiobooks for me She is absolutely amazing at it The books come to life in my head as she reads it with many different accents for all the characters She has such enthusiasm and even sings all the old sailor songs I swear she s amazing When this series is over I shall be quite sad to go back to the regular books with singular characters and narrators without enough ummph.L.A Meyer has found a gem of a series with his adventures of Jacky Faber and I hope f [...]
One completely outrageous adventure after another I can t believ how many famous historical events they cover in this series Its just plain fun Its perfect for long drives or house cleaning I love the narrator and how she makes it easy to follow each character I keep thinking I am going to get tired of Jacky Faber but I never seem to She is NEVER BORING
While I love the Bloody Jack series and adore Jacky and her wild adventures, I couldn t help feeling frustrated with the direction this one went with I find Jacky s character refreshing from the pristine, virginal heroines who never contribute to anything constructive I like how Meyer makes Jacky identifiable and her character like a real girl I don t even mind Jacky s use of her sexuality and various love interests.What I found to be the biggest wallbanger moment was when she was having yet ano [...]
So, I would probably give this one 31 2 stars It s not my favorite of the series, but there is always so much adventure that once I pick them up there just really isn t a place to put it down until I m finished This series is ridiculous and over the top and yet I m still find myself excited to see Jacky squeeze her way out of another tight spot She is such a girlie girl and the next moment cool, confident, and in control Everything I secretly want to be I can see why she made such and excellent [...]
Irrepressible Jacky Faber is back in her 6th book Now she has been captured and beheaded by the French Somehow she overcomes that and is being sent by the British to be a spy while acting as messenger for the French army.Love her spunkiness
I listened to the audiobook The narrator, Katherine Kellgren, is amazing The story is full of suspense and humor I always know she will survive, but I m still scared for Jacky.
As I ve come to expect, I loved the next installment of Jacky s adventures My Bonny Light Horseman made me love Jacky even I can never put one of L.A Meyer s books down
Meyer, L.A My Bonny Light Horseman Being an Account of the Further Adventures of Jacky Faber, in Love and War, 448 pgs Harcourt, Inc Language PG 13, Sexual Content PG 13 Violence PG 13Fans of Jacky Faber are rejoicing at her return Jacky Faber is finally headed to England to see what awaits her most likely the hangman s noose Unexpectedly, the ship she is on is captured by the French and Jacky is imprisoned and beheaded well, at least that is what the British Intelligence Service want the world [...]
Still enjoying this series It is a lot of fun.
Once again Meyer has created an amazing story that takes place across continents, wraps in a good amount of history and presents a highly entertaining journey More young men fall for dear Jacky, others from the past show up in her present and at one point, Jacky even becomes a confidant for Napoleon Does anyone remember the very beginning of this series when I compared it to the adventures of Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean That s still exceptionally accurate.Scenes that make you laug [...]
Previously, Jacky Faber was a ship s boy, a pirate, a lady, a singer, a housekeeper, a horse racer, and a captain among other things In the sixth Bloody Jack book, she becomes a prisoner again and a courtesan, a spy, a dancer, and a messenger in Napoleon s army I was worried about this one Whereas I loved the first three of this series, I hated numbers 4 and 5 Thankfully, there is a lot less of Jaimy in this one he was getting on my nerves and less singing and dancing and action The story begin [...]
One of the better books in the series This book furthered the plot which was a little at a stand still and yet kept the characters interesting Jean Paul de Valdon was a very interesting character to watch as he grew from snobby aristocrat to intriguing lover I also liked the reappearance of Randall Trevelyne He added some underlying conflict between him and Jean Paul I also liked that Jacky got to be back in a situation where she was in command of a battle unit of some sort One thing I would hav [...]
As always, can t get enough of that Jacky I loved the first half, the second half was only so so for me Since Katie did a review of all the possible love interests for Jacky, I will do the samence mine are slightly different than hersd loving.1 Jaimyher betrothed Who else chases her around the world and is always there for her All the other men love her, but never hang in there forever.2 Joseph JaredI love his cockiness and it is well earned 3 Jean Paulhe is so sweet and loving He really loves J [...]
Yes, I know, I can t believe I m still reading this series eitherBut who can resist yet another book about Jacky miraculously averting death, somehow missing Jaime AGAIN, stringing along every guy in sight, pretending to be a boy, flashing some skin, and leading a battle or two It really makes me wonder, since the author is a man, if she is indeed what most men are attracted to Can some single lady please test this theory and let me know Thanks.Oh, but I also noticed in this one, how Forrest Gum [...]
I liked this book, because I like the Jacky Faber books, but I am ready for an end in the series In was harder for me to be involved in the plot than in book 5, but it was a quicker read I enjoyed the book, but it wasn t the best Bloody Jack book there I think I m ready for her to just hook up with Jaimey and be down with it The book is about Jacky forced in to be a spy, and her adventures as a female spy, in some parts she is actually known to be a woman, and in other parts she is up to her usu [...]
Again this installment was pretty amazing, made so by the superior reading of the audiobook narrator This is the first one of the Jacky Faber books that I listened to instead of read and I wasn t sure I would like it At first, the cockney accent of the reader got on my nerves, but I trudged through and became thoroughly convinced that this is THE way to experience these books The acting was superb as was the writing I was sorry to recently read of the death of the author, L A Meyer, but I m gla [...]
Another entertaining installment of the adventures of Bloody Jack The series continues to have a pretty heavy focus on Jacky when she wants to protecting herself from the frequent and determined attempts at her virtue Sometimes things get a little smutty for a YA titlebut Jacky takes it all in good humor after all, she wasn t raised up proper, something she states often and continues on her merry way This episode features Jacky as a spy for the British Intelligence Agency She ends up in the Fren [...]
In order to save her friends as well as herself, Jacky is forced to travel to France as a spy Well, to be blunt, she is supposed to sleep with high ranking officers in order to get information from them Jacky, in her own way, deals with this problem Not going to say whether she does or whether she doesn t.Then she goes off to war as a messenger She trains troops and gets caught in the middle of a huge battle as only she can do She runs into old friends and makes new ones as only she can.Not much [...]
Jane, what do you think Simon Pegg as Joseph Jared Not Shaun in Shaun of the Dead, perhaps like Inspector Nicholas Angel in Hot Fuzz As for Scotty, he s got the cheeky grin down pat.I get why you like him now I m in the middle of re reading Under the Jolly Roger, so I m getting a double dose of that saucy sailor.
I always have such a fun time hanging out with Jacky Where does she find all these wonderful men to fall all over her I need whatever she has to make that happen to me hahaha The ending to this one was crazy Can t wait to move onto the next book p.s The audiobook for this series remains excellent.
Loved this book
All in one day And after finishing 5.
I love that Jacky Faber
i need to read this book i cant wait for it i ve been waiting quite awhile.
I liked this one must better than Mississippi Jack, and was a bit bummed that it s so much shorter than other books in the series Jacky calms down a bit, has grown up a tiny bit, and the plot is maybe a bit heavier and less full of her whimsical misadventures.I say I liked this onebut this may be where I take a break from the series After reading so many of the books back to back, some themes and shortcomings are extra obvious She s supposedly engaged to Jaimy, but in each book she fools around [...]
