Top critical review
on 6 February 2012
I have read all of the Morganville books, and I have enjoyed them too. I like that fact they they are an easy read, and that they really do keep you hooked until the end, desperate to find out what happens. The characters mesh really well, and the humour in it is also very good!
And I also really did enjoy this one! Some of the characters that you had already pictured are portrayed differently in this book, but that doesn't take away from the usual Rachel Caine style! I agree, it may not have been the best, but it was still very good, kept me hooked!
However.... Do they really need to be dragged out? I can't remember exactly but I think atleast three other books in this series not including this one, finishes half way through the story! Yes, fine, I am desperate to find out what happens, and it makes me angry that I will have to wait (patience not being a virtue of mine), but never before have I come across a series of books that finishes half way through the story. Yes, some books have cliff hangers, but the story that was being told, had finished, it was merely leaving the book open to another.
What bugs me most: is this some ploy to get more money? Finish the story half way through, and carry on in another book. Making the readers so curious as to what happens next they feel the need to buy the next book just to suppress that curiosity!?!?!
