LOL, mockingbird. There will be quite a contrast alright. (unless your book is also more than a bit boring and not particularly well written)
Every time Mystery talks about who's going to be his 'wingman', and all the other Top Gun references I do giggle remembering the FotC episode, but I find myself picturing Criss Angel or Johnny Depp in the role more than Jemaine. (I think the piercings and black nail polish are throwing me) Then again, I had a tiny bit of trouble getting used to Jemaine as Keiran, Jarrod or Dr. Chevalier so maybe it would grow on me.
Jemaine looked pretty good in guy-liner and manscara in the Fashion is Danger video.
So far this book is gross, puerile and underwhelming. I find it hard to believe there are really any men who took it seriously, but the story is ripe to be brutally decimated with humor and a sharp wit.
I was hoping for some interesting points to be make about how ‘sexyness’ comes from within, that social skills can get you further than traditional good looks, and that maybe some men fail at approaching women simply because they need a few tips and a lot more practice.
Or maybe even to explore what is it exactly that draws you toward or away from another human being?
I think I would almost rather see Jemaine start out as an AFC (average frustrated chump) but I'll try to stick with it. Maybe the rest of the book will reveal some interesting twists for Mystery. The beginning (end) is rather dramatic and I would love to see J do some serious acting.
