Swing and a miss...
on August 1, 2011
I will just add my voice to the mob. I love LKH, I love Anita. I have for the last several years wrinkled my nose at people who say the series is declining. But I'm starting to agree with them.
This one just fell flat for me. I tried to care. I couldn't. The long list of secondary characters bores me- why bother to keep up with Anitas 35 lovers. She'll get a new one in a few pages anyway. I miss the core characters- can I get a little Richard please or Jean Claude? Hell even Micah. Is Anita ever going to raise a zombie again or even reference that part of her power?
I do love Edward/Ted. I was glad to have a book with more of him in it.
I'll read the next one. I can't help but try and see it through after reading so many. I hope LKH pulls out a story from the muddled mess this has become.
