One of the Best!
on October 11, 2002
Another thoroughly enjoyable book from JG. Nathan became a standout to me when he appeared in GUARDIAN ANGEL. In THE GIFT, he's great, so realistic because he has a few endearing FLAWS. He's a clumsy romantic with so much appeal, and is very very handsome. He's so masculine you just know he's not afraid of anything. Sara was a true delight, despite the fact that nearly all of JG's heroines are identical in character, with the exception of Jade from GUARDIAN ANGEL. Most of JG's heroines start out being a little bit scatter-brained, with every hero believing her DAFT. Eventually the intellect of the heroine shines through. And I will say that JG's heroines are never, ever, stupid. In fact, after finishing this book, I realize what made the adorable Sara different from the others. She wasn't quite as DAFT as she appeared to be; everything she said and did, she did for a specific reason.
Now, the FRECKLES thing has got to stop.
As for humor, this book is one of JG's best. That's part of the reason Nathan and Sara were so interesting. You could practically feel Nathan's frustration when dealing with Sara, but she was so comical he didn't stand a chance.
One of the funniest scenes out of all JG's books, takes place here in THE GIFT. It's when Sara meets Sterns, the butler. It doesn't get much funnier than that.
