a provoking book that pushes the boundaries,
This review is from: Body Electric (Mass Market Paperback)
If this book was in techo-thriller category it would not cause as much fuss, as it is more in the Robin Cook-Michael Crichton vein than true romance. I have always held that the romance genre is a misnomer, that there is NO genre outside of publishing's mind, because romance is all genres - horror, historical, western, mysteries, suspense and comedy...name a catagory and there is a writer in the romance field doing it and doing it well. And Susan Squires is out to prove that point with a vengeance!!
Squires is a super writer, she challenges the reader, pushes buttons and makes you think. But at times, I get really really angry at her characters (LOL)!! This book is a stroke of near genius, but it is very hard to connect with Vic...the emotional tie you need to your main character is lacking. At times, not only is there no empathy, you really do not like Vic. It is that lack that causes this work to just miss mark. She is a graphic writers (some readers complain TOO graphic - if that is the case then don't read her). She pulls no punches, gives the reader no pleasant safety net. She writes with a confidence that is way beyond someone with just a third book and is a name that will be around.
