99 I finally got around to reading Guilty Pleasures, the first Anita Blake book, and can at least see why they re not in the Romance section it s gory and the author doesn t seem to like vampires at all.
I know Hamilton s very well established and has a huge fan base, and I know there are lots of other people who don t like her books, so I feel pretty confident I m not going to get lynched by saying I m glad I only spent 2 on this book.
I really didn t like it This is partly because I was so often confused, partly because I was very bored, and partly because there s simply no one to like in this book I didn t like Anita, I was very distracted by the way she dresses and the things she thinks about I didn t like any of the humans or other characters the vampires were portrayed in the non romantic cliche way a This book I loved it the first few times I read it And then Not so much I blame reading Fever right before Also There was something I could not quite put my finger on At first What was it The writing style Everything was fragmented sentences And strangely formal speech Instead of I m, we get I am Instead of I d, we get I would Every Time Even when it does not fit It is like LKH has not yet met an apostrophe I am one of those people, you know the ones.
Once I see something, hear something, NOTICE something like that, I cannot un notice it I ll stop with the annoying fragments and the non apostrophes now as I can t even bring myself to write them for an extended period of time, let alone force anyone to read them unlike someone else I could mention.
Okay, in all seriousness, don t do what I did Don t read this book after reading Fever Anita Blake Is Small, Dark, And Dangerous Her Turf Is The City Of St Louis Her Job Re Animating The Dead And Killing The Undead Who Take Things Too Far But When The City S Most Powerful Vampire Asks Her To Solve A Series Of Vicious Slayings, Anita Must Confront Her Greatest Fear Her Undeniable Attraction To Master Vampire Jean Claude, One Of The Creatures She Is Sworn To Destroy Reread Back in the day, when Anita wasn t a power hungry, nympho This book reminds how great the Anita Blake series once was Here Anita Blake has a job as an animator raising the dead for information for the police force and isn t spending any of her time lazing in bed with her posse of wimpy beauteous men, she even has girlfriends and we are introduced to an intriguing character named Edward I had forgotten all about him This is the book where she meets Jean Claude whose charms she is easily able to resist Vampires are being murdered and master vampire, Nikolaos sp demands her expertise to track down the killer Here Anita is still known as the Executioner and lives by her words I don t date vampires I kill them In order to get information into the secret underground vampire scene she pals around with vampire junkie Phillip Phillip is the first inkling into Hamilton s ob That was something Right, I guess it was ok.
How did vampires become common knowledge I understand they became legal 2 years prior to the action in the book, but why How And who is Anita Blake I could not connect with her at all She felt shallow No, not shallow I really can t find the word right now She felt not real, but someone that simply went with the flow, with no actual starting point, or purpose I would like to say she felt like a character in a book, but I love books, so that would be insulting to them.
And how on Earth view spoiler did two humans with no spectacular powers kill a 1000 years old vampire The vampire must have been extremely stupid because she went down so fast I usually like vampires very much, but the ones in Guilty Pleasures are idiots in spite of having great power hide spoiler The engaging start of a wonderful series that morphs into erotica partway through If you like V.
I Warshawski, Kinsey Milhone,and other female gumshoes, and you like some fantasy, you will definitely like this series in the beginning Normal world, normal woman, except that vampires and other supernatural critters are real, some have civil rights and coexist with humans or less peacefully, and the protagonist is a 5 2 gun toting butt kicking necromancer Her day job is raising the dead for a company that specializes in it so that answers about wills, etc.
