What Is Your Favorite Story By Our Favorite Goat?

Recommended Posts

Since we have yet to hear from our fearless leader who may or may not hang out on cliffs. I thought I would like to hear which story to date by C.James do you guys like and why. Also if you have thoughts on what story or sequel you would like to see from C.James, tell us about it.

Now my favorite story is.... Omg it's hard to just pick one, but I loved circumnavigation. As for a follow up story I'd like a story maybe a small one for the characters of changing lanes and circumnavigation just to see where they are in life now. Or a good novel based on love in and around my area.

I agree with you on Circumnavigation.  It is my favorite from C James for its strong characters and nonstop action.

 

It is also the world's second longest novel published in English: 1,082,090 words.  It trails Remembrance of Things Past by Marcel Proust (1,267,069 words) and is well ahead of Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace (587,287 words).

 

I'm sure C J is not resting on his laurels.  Something great is coming.

Circumnavigation is my favorite opus of his works.   It held me in thrall for about  three years.

Really?! :o I didn't realize it ranked so high :blink:

 

Hm... I am with everyone else so far in saying Circumnavigation is my favorite, of course it almost a year ago, but the thing that stands out (other than the characters) were the places. I now want to travel to Australia because of this novel :D CJames brought these places to life and I want to see them with my own eyes.

I'm going to differ and select Let The Music Play as my favourite. While I thoroughly enjoyed Circumnavigation, I've always found Brandon's struggles to survive and then prosper more touching.

That was a great read too. I truly love all of C James work. And I did not know about circumnavigation being the secondnlongest English novel in the world. That is awesome and I feel accomplished knowing I read the whole thing. Lol.

Well...all the lists of 'longest' novel I've seen exclude self-published/Internet novels. So in comparison to published novels, Circumnavigation fits between numbers one and two. But that's not comparing it to other Internet novels. I don't know how it fares there, especially when you have stories that may be broken into multiple 'books' but the author may consider to be one story in multiple parts. Examples include Mark Arbour's CAPS series, Bill W's Castaway Hotel series, Comicality's GFD and The Secret Life of Billy Chase, and elsewhere on the Internet, the still incomplete The Scrolls of Icaria by Jamie.

I will differ too :)

 

D.P. asked for a story that you'd like a sequel or know more about, and CJ has already provided it to us.

 

Jake, was a sequel to his anthology Three for Jake. What I liked about this story the most was that he took a subject that many have tried really hard to make seem real and actually made it feel real for the fist time. At the end of the story you can actually relate to this different mix working out instead of having more doubts than feelings of it all working out.

 

Check them out ;)

Each CJ story has bean great for differing reasons. I agree with Greame's comments though, Brandon's struggle were so wrenching at the beginning, that his amazing break and slow climb up and out of his hell was done amazingly well.

 

My appreciation for Let the Music Pay in no way however, takes anything away from my love of Circumnavagation. Though I would love to see a follow up to Circumnavigation, I'm very hard pressed to come up with any ideas of how CJ could indulge us in our wish to see our four teens somewhere in the future.

 

No matter what it might be, I will be so happy to see and read anything that CJ and his team will hopefully soon share with us...

I am casting a vote for Circumnavigation as it was the first story in GA that I ever read. I just happened upon it by accident and stuck with through the whole thing. Mark Arbours series Bridgemont would be a strong number two, but apparently, he has dropped it with the ship and crew stuck off in the Baltic Ocean. I am waiting, however Mark. Now we shall see what happens with James and 'Let the Music Play'. I have just started that and notice there is also a second book.

Though I feel that whatever story by C James I am currently reading, is my favorite, I would have to say that Circumnavigation is my all-time favorite, probably because it was the first one I read and also my introduction to the treasure chest of stories on GA. We always remember our 'first time' with a rosy aura, don't we?
