The Bohemian - A Novel

Hey everyone, I finally ended up transferring my entire novel, THE BOHEMIAN, online. So while I keep looking for a publisher, give it a read and let me know what you think!

Haven't got the time right now, but I've stuck it in my favourites and will start to read it soon...

Excellent. I've bookmarked it.

so.... will all your "friends" now grow to hate you as they find parallels in your 'fiction' to real life, inadvertently leading to questions about friendship, ethics, and loyalty as they read about themselves as seen through the eyes of

THE BOHEMIAN

I read the whole novel today... loved it. Great work mate.

GC PHILO said...

Wow, Hippo. All in one day? I don't know what to say... I'm glad, thrilled, exstatic, etc. that you liked it so much. Do you think that there's anything that needed work? What did you like most/ the least? It took me two years to write it and you read it in a day! I don't know how to react!!! It's like when my girlfriend cooks a meal for two hours and I scarf it down in three minutes... I need to know - Was there enough salt????

Well If I read it in one day I would say you seasoned it just right :o) I liked Kim and felt really sad when he left. I got the whole meaning of the boats etc...very clever. I hated Herman. I have had my share of run-ins w/ blokes like that. I liked getting into Paul's mind...about how he was feeling and thinking...he was really sweet and charming. I think I only found one spelling error... I think you meant to spell 'took' and it was spelled 'too'? I was too busy reading to be critical really and have not a clue where it would be located in your story.... The end was great!!! I love the two old chaps in the chess club...I got them pictured in my minds eye just perfect. Not sure what I think about Eva...but I will leave her mystery. I love the whole ‘Elvis’ concept… I like that there were a lot of people in your story and I could remember who they were because they were all so different, distinguished. I think I could write a novel… it would take me ages. I have not a clue how to even start… maybe something that has to do w/ something from my past?.. it would have to be fiction…on one would ever believe it was true anyway…lol.

Oh...and you had all the sexy parts very well done I must say... I love the honesty of Paul. I just hope he has some sort of medical insurance to sort out his future liver problem...lol. I could go on and on about what I think but I have to get my chicken's ready for school.

christina said...

What? Hippo says there are sexy parts? Then I'm going to MAKE time to read it right away.

GC... there is a lad that works for my hubby that is a traveling explorer just like in your novel. He has been everywhere and has stories like Paul. My hubby loves this guy and told me about him last night. I told hubby about your novel and he is going to see if this lad would like to read it. Funny thing is that this lad asked this hot Polish girl, that works in the canteen, out on a date. All the other lads were gobsmacked because they all want her...but it was this traveling lad who asked her out. HE he hehe... reminds me of your novel as well.

Lisa said...

Uh-huh. I'm all over that too. Can't wait. :)

GC PHILO said...

Ha! That's a nice one Hippo! I'm assuming the Polish girl said yes? You'll never know the waters unless you test them... Thanks for spreading the word about my novel and, by the way, if hubby also happens to have a London publishers working for him, DEFINITELY tell him to take a look too!

hippo_pepperpot said...

Yep..she said yes. I guess she has all the curves in the right places and all the guys have been eyeing her for some time but never made a move..then this average looking traveling lad comes in and asked her out...the others are kicking themselves now.
Sorry no publishers...only construction type... hubby builds hospitals at the moment. Wish I could help.

christina said...

OK, I'm about a third of the way through now (and OK, I read the last two chapters as well) and it's great! Very entertaining.

One thing - you started out calling the school director's wife "Kamilla" in chapter 2 and then suddenly switched to "Priscilla" and used that name in later chapters as well.

You should definitely write more stuff like this.

Hey GC, I posted to the last page of the novel a couple days ago but I don't see my post. I don't know what happened.

Anyway, I read it all on the weekend. I noted typos if you care to fix them.

Let me know if you'd like to review them. Email the Editor from my site.

By the way, it was a great read.
