I just want to put in my two cent and say that...well, put simply I didn't like this trilogy. Not at all. It's written for an audience that...are different kinds of readers than myself. I can appreciate that there is a main-stream book out there about the lifestyle, but I did not appreciate the internal dialogue, the many many plotholes, the inaccuracies, and the fact that even though it's meant as a fantasy, I just couldn't get into it. The main character is unrealistically adolescent, and; well, I'll just stop there. I know the conversation has veered from this, but I saw the thread's title and wanted to give my opinion. I don't want to hate or cause drama or anything. Just sayin'. Wasn't my cuppa. I've read better, but perhaps that's because I'm finicky about what I read.
