Not So Nice Vamps

Well, you knew it had to happen...I've met a vampire I didn't like. Actually, fact, I only sort liked Willie (Willie the vampire, hee hee) and Jean-Claude. All the rest? They made me understand why Anita Blake (our heroine) was a vampire hunter (as well as an animator, meaning she raises the dead).

This series came very highly recommended to me, and while I can't say I hated it, I didn't fall in love, either. Anita seems to spend an awful lot of time dithering around trying to decide what to do, and her background is very secretive. I need more information! And the gore? Repetitive and plentiful. I'm not squeamish but sometimes torture for torture's sake is more than I need. I'm going to have to give this some thought before I go on to the next book (if I do)...I see potential but I wasn't blown away.

My amazon review is at Apparently I'm in the minority as to not totally loving it.

I finally tried this one, and I didn't love it either. In fact, I didn't finish it. Oh well! They can't all be winners, right?
