Reflected in You - Series of Events


Recommended Posts

Hi - Sylvia recently posted that we must read RIY very carefully before reading EWY. Which of course means there are so many clues and scenes we must remember to make sense in EWY. (which just lends to how smart and clever Sylvia is..seriously, sooo smart)

 

anyways, Ive read the book several times and plan on reading it again right before June 4th, however, it would be helpful if anyone out there had an outline of events, going by day....does anyone have this? I am such a loser, but I want to print it out and have it as a companion guide when Im reading.Just to get all the events straight in my head.

 

PS
 I am WAY too into this!

Hi reader76

I am reading BTY as well as listening to the audio version at the moment. Sad I know. I have only just started. It was mentioned that the audio version picks up things that we might misinterpret via the book. I will let you know.

Welcome by the way.

I would be interested in a timeline also. I am reading them on my reader which makes it hard sometimes to go back to check things out.

 

Question is the person who is on the audio good? I sometimes have a hard time with the voice because it sounds so phony 

 

I am re reading again, so don't worry about being too into it..

The audio book narrator is top-notch, very talented!

 

Don't own an iPod or similar mobile device? Not to worry. If you listen to music on your computer, you have all the equipment you need. If you've ever purchased songs online, so you can burn songs to CDs, you already have the know how to buy an audiobook, play it, and even make CD copies to play in your car or on a stereo.

 

You can download the audiobooks onto your computer and listen to them there. (In fact, folks who use iPods download their audiobooks to a computer, then plus the portable device into the computer in order to transfer a copy onto the device. The original purchase stays on the computer, just like songs you buy stay there too.)

 

The two best places to buy digital copies of the audiobooks are the iTunes store or Audible.com (BTW if you have a Kindle Fire e-reader, you can listen to the audiobook on it.)

 

If anyone has some general tech questions about the process, I'll try to help.

 

P.S. In case you're wondering what my preferred method is .... I own an iPod, but I prefer to buy audiobooks on Audible.com instead of iTunes. Audible has membership plans for folks (like me) who regularly buy audiobooks plus frequent sales for members. In fact, during one sale earlier this year, both Crossfire novels were offered for sale. 

 

It's less expensive to use Audible if you're really into audiobooks. However, you don't need to be a member -- you can make one-time purchases at regular price instead of member price.

 

Folks who own iPods can transfer Audible purchases to their iPods just like they can transfer songs onto their iPods from places other than iTunes.

`

Monday:

-Continues to train Will at the office.

- Has lunch with Megumi and Will. After lunch Gideon enters the elevator with them and then tells her to stay when Megumi and Will exit.

- In the elevator he gives her back her ring. Tells her to wait again and then exits.

- Eva makes and appointment with Dr. Lucas and asks Cary to check into him.

- She leaves a message for CV Jr.

- Asks Mark if she can come in an hour late tomorrow to take care of an appointment.

- Eva calls Monica and asks if she saw Nathan outside the Crossfire that day after lunch with Megumi.

-She returns home, and tells Cary about her day. Cary shows her the transcript of Brett's interview with a radio station in Florida.

 

Tuesday:

-Has Angus bring her to Corrine's. After waiting in the lobby 20 minutes she goes up and Corrine makes it look like she has someone with her. Eva's got her number, thank goodness.

- She leaves Corrine's and heads to Dr. Lucas' against Angus' better judgment. She confronts him.

- Gideon is waiting for her as she exits his office and Gideon warns him to stay away from Eva.

-Gideon gets her in elevator and starts kissing her. Tells her a few words can't end them, there is no end. He asks her to trust him, she tells him not when he doesn't talk to her.

- Gideon has Raul and Angus ride together so he can drive with Eva and talk. They talk about his abuse and Eva tells him she is going to marry him. He tries to explain why they are apart. Says that he had an opportunity and took it and this time apart is the price that needs to be paid. Tells her his silence is the lesser of two evils. Feels like whether he explains or not he'll drive her away. But explaining carries the greatest risk. He is obviously referring to killing Nathan. This makes me believe in the end that when he is on his knees before Eva he is really not sure what her reaction is going to be to the fact that he killed Nathan.

- Gideon tells a stunned Eva in the car that he loves her, not once but twice.

- Gideon tells Eva he is coming back to her as soon as he can and reminds her to wait.

- Security escorts Eva to their office to meet with Gideon as she comes back to the building. He asks her about harassing CV Jr.. Eva and Gideon talk about how good it feels to trust each other.

- Gideon kisses her sweetly and tells her he loves her.

- This is where he tells her the night she had the nightmare and he had just gotten back to her place after cleaning out his "###### Pad" at the hotel.

- Eva picks up sparkling apple cider on the way home and her and Cary have an action movie marathon while eating pizza with chopsticks and Chinese food with their fingers.

 

Wednesday:

-Eva goes to Krav Maga.

- Detective Graves sees her there and tells Eva her theory.

-Admits that Gideon was in the police station when Eva called that Saturday and broke up with him.

- Eva goes to Gideon's and waits for him and then tells him Detective Graves says they are dropping the case.

The End.

Excellent, Kirsten! 

 

Maybe we could have a day-by-day book club discussion here by re-reading the chapter(s) involved, so we can hash out details and explore ideas of where some of the things in the chapters are leading.

 

:)

 

What an excellent idea.

With every bodies input, we will make sure all clues are covered.

Sounds like a good idea to me. I re-read often, but looking at it with others will be most helpful in figuring things out.
