I love this book! The historical details are fascinating, the people are believable and sympathetic, and the story is dramatic and exciting. And the love story is very sweet and understated. Altogether an awesome read.

Book 2 in the Silver Screen series. Compared to Scandal in Babylon, there's a little more depth to the main characters as their story (and back story) develops, and some truly engaging secondary characters are introduced. There's also some gripping action, both onscreen (actual carnage on the set of a war epic) and off (attempted murder and piracy on the high seas! says the bootlegger before contacting the FBI). I enjoyed this more than the first in the series and look forward to sequels.

I love the way Emma's brain keeps coming up with appropriate lines from Homer's Odyssey during their ordeal. Her professor would be proud, she thinks distractedly. Her tendency to frame 1920s Hollywood in classical terms is always a joy (although challenging to one's Latin), but the Odyssey sequence (thank God that since about 1940, nobody supplies Homeric lines in the original Greek) is simply priceless.… (mais)

Trying a dragon/fantasy to see if I would like it, but just couldn't get into it. Gave it 110 pages, but not my cup of tea. Sorry Mrs. Hambly.
