I'm afraid I've developed an unhealthy attachment to Christopher Moore's books.

I'll post the answers to the meme in a while, I've been with my family this weekend and there was no way to record without them finding out, so yeah.

I've started re-reading a couple of Anita Blake books. I know Laurell K. Hamilton isn't the best writer out there, both in talent and attitude, but I do love Edward, so I'm reading the books where he appears. (And skipping Narcissus in Chains and all kind of orgies).
As always I've noticed she repeats stuff a damn lot, but I can oversee that.

What I just noticed was the fact that, my my, the author doesn't seem to think really highly about women. Seriously.
"She's not like any woman" "She was a woman, so she was chatty" "I didn't wear makeup, strange on a woman" "Women can't shake hands" "Women are fragile" "I liked boys better" "I was one of the guys" "Pride is for men" blah blah.

I don't like it, it gets old pretty damn quickly. (But gee, I fucking love Edward)

Also, there's a problem about Edward. Laurel seems to forget about the whole "Show don't tell" thing when it comes to him. She says he is spooky, amazingly good at killing, cold, talented at murder, pitiless and most important, the thing monsters fear.
He is a human and monsters call him "Death".
Yes, he does prove he is a complete badass, but for some reason in his fight scenes he seems a bit...lame. The most amazing things he has done he does it outside the scene, someone just talks about it or some crap like that.

But yeah I love him.

(Also I dreamed that Sideshow Bob was my teacher, that was awesome.

Why Candice? Why did you have to leave Eldorado in sake of being a richer man? Why do you prefer to be rich in a poor country than poor in the richest?
Why is it that you are moved by the empty value of gold, even if you are the purest soul on earth. Oh Candice! 

Damn it! Candice is driving me nuts, the poor guy...I mean, he arrived to the happiest place he could think about (and he thought about it plenty of times) and yet he abandons it because she wants the money and the woman.

Damn it Candice! I really liked you.

As you can see...I'm enjoying the book, a lot.
