Honestly this person critical stupid or what ever the stupid name is, has no life. And it seems to just like to bad mouth on many authors. Everyone has their own way on writting. Not everyone has to think the same or write the same, because if we did it would be BORING. IDIOT!! LOVE YOU LAURELL, YOU ARE AWSOME. KEEP WRITTING.

You know what I get tired of?
Is people yelling down at those of us, who make our disappointed with paying money for a substandard product known.
I didn't pick up Anita to read a bunch of hunch crunching and meaningless, empty sex.
I have plenty of books where I can find that.
I didn't pick up the Anita Blake series to read about a 27 year old woman who has finally decided to go EMO simply because she hasn't the foggiest idea that a great orgasm doesn't equate to love.
I didn't pick up the Anita Blake series to read about a grown woman who has yet to realize that one's heart strings are not attacted to their womb.
Nor did I pick up the Anita Blake series to read about the author's personal opinion about religion or to put a different spin on bigotry, racism or elitism; i.e., the men wearing Red shirt to "alert" Anita that they are willing to be food for the arduer.
I read The Harlequin and it took me two and a half weeks.
I finish two Diana Gabaldon in between wanting to toss The Harlequin in the trash or setting the pages afire with my cigarette.
Amanda is absolutely correct.
The entire downfall of the series is due to a lack of editoral pruning.
I understand the world is viewed through Anita's eyes, but instead of the author showing me what's going on around this character, I, as a reader spend more time belly up in the ramblings of her mind, that the story falls short of anything worthy of the emoney I put out for a hard cover book.
If that is hard to understand, then allow me to impart a bit of wisdom.
LKH's book are a product, as a consumer I pay good money for her books expecting something more than a lemon.

Ok you know what is the real problem the haters. Seriously no one is holding a gun to your head saying you have to read her books. You don't like it thats fine, but there is no need to be a B***H about it.
So for all of those who do nothing but bad mouth and make it so people who do enjoy her books don't want to go into message boards and chats i will say what nobody wants to or is willing to say, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

Get a life. Anyway i haven't posted in a while and obviously neither has anyone interesting. You know what Laurell K's real problem is, she needs an editor. Long term authors should never snub their editor's. I've come to respect these people a great deal, not as many typo's and certainly not six hundred pages of garbled plotless stuff. You see it in movies all the time, potentially great films and now it's happening to books as well. I see people coming out of movies like Spider-man 3 pirates of the caribbean 3 which have weak plots and people are like ooh that movie was great. NOT! And now it's happening in books, how is that possible. It's not. I don't get it, but judging by the current state of our media and can see how people are awed by nothing but nonesense and pointless drivel. I know you all missed me, lets face it, a world without out spoken opinions just isn't a world worth living in. And yes if I could post right on LKH's site I would.

The countdown to the HQ is on...I hope even though ppl are not happy with the Anita series they will still read and have some discussion~ I am looking forward to the group.

I don't think sex is the problem...it has to be dealt with...look at all Anita has been through is such a short time...My problem is that Laurell is missing huge plot points trying to get Anita through this...There were Six(if I remember correctly) master vamps in town and she had Anita in the limo...I think they needed separate books...Sex is a good thing...but not when you have big bads around...makes them seem small...anyway that's my 2 cents worth

Hi everyone! i have never been on this site before but i just want to say LKH is a brilliant author when it comes to Anita Blake. However, i am really disappointed in the character Anita has evolved into. I have stopped reading the series altogether.
