superb series to lose yourself in,
This review is from: Tales Of The City (Paperback)
I loved this book, so much so I read the other five immediately afterwards. It is a wonderful series, well written with warm characters you really care about. The female characters are not as deep as the male ones - they seem to come in 2 flavours - dyke and bimbo. But the male characters have more degrees of character and are written well. It is about a handful of different charaters in San Francisco whose lives, during the course of the book, intertwine in various ways and with bizarre coincidence. Michael, the most written about character of the book is great - you keep on reading to find out what he's up to.
The following books in the series follow their lives through the years, the whole series spanning 20 odd years.
However, the 5th in the series was the worst by far. It was still an easy read but the characters he concentrated on weren't the best.
Generally excellent though.
