Um...speaking as a guy...there is no way any self respecting male author would write this badly either.

Yeah, there are a lot of bad guys who write bad fic as well as can be witnessed in the majority of written porn. I just think that LKH has some serious issues that she keeps spewing them forth because for some reason, she thinks that it is hot.

Maybe there are just like a lot of non-discerning, reality TV show watching, bored fans out there that keep stroking her ego.

Just remember she keeps saying that it's a numbers game. They don't lie. The ones on the paycheck and the number of copies sold. There must be enough people out there to stroke her ego it makes my eyes pop!

I've known some very good writers who were guys. And some very bad girl writers. Just that she's writing as if Anita thought like a misanthropic guy.
Makes me wonder what gal pals she really has. I know for a fact that I couldn't get away with any of Anita's shit, even if I *were* that hawt!

i wonder if she had a signing and we all turned in ballots how many would say they preferred her older books over her newer ones.

I will admit she does create a huge cast of characters for us to play with that are vivid,even if they don't get much page time. The only ones that didn't get my attention were the new tigers in BN.

There were major problems with BN but we did get to see a glimmer of the old Anita.


I thought that too. I also breathed a sigh of relief when Richard arrived at the hotel because it seems like some sense would be restored to the plot.

I have about a third of the book left to read - seems like it's a case of wishful thinking..... crybaby

It's funny that I find this now. I've become a huge Jason and Nathaniel fan and love them in the first few chapters. Heh... I started reading the book again just for that.

If you can get some enjoyment out of the book, it can't be all that bad.

I finished reading it last night and found certain sections so long, drawn out & tedious not to mention repetetive......

Best part for me was when Richard turned up and lost the anger and was normal Richard again. But then LKH turned him into a dick. Again.

I give up!

It does draw out too long in some parts. And I agree that we only got a tantalizing glimpse of likeable Richard. Sigh...

And also, Anita kept telling the Tigers to leave and just when you thought they'd go, there was another 3 pages of dialogue! Boring!!

I'd actually forgotten the end, it was that "okay" of a book. I'm going to finish it this morning and move on.

OK, I'm a little late, and I've just read Gorgoneion's post above... but I cannot help myself and ROTFL!

I think Anita Blake is the biggest Mary Sue character.

(And yes, I still love the boys/men in the serie and I hope they all have their very great life behind Ms Blake's back. :P )
