What take a story rife with possibilities and turn it into a tale of stubborn one-dimensional creatures scowling at one another?
This is a collection of three Mills & Boon stories, one each from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Surprisingly, I’ve had fun.
A TBR Challenge 2015 review. I think there is a spelling mistake in the title. It should be “loathsome”, no?
Six feet under, more like.
Worst book of 2014! What a surprise – it’s new adult sh… stuff.
Now this is how you create a familiar but very entertaining romp!
The orgy of weird-kooky electronic overload continues.
Easily the biggest girl power action flick of the year, this one however doesn’t offer much beyond loud explosions.
The adventures, the dangers, and the hero are all adequate for a good time. The romance, not quite.
Don’t tell anyone, but I think the two main characters here skin bunnies and kill old ladies for fun.
Hos on the street, sucking and robbing their johns! Hold your excitement, though, the story is nowhere as exciting as it could have been.
Nothing new here, just the same old stuff, rehashed the same old way.
The author didn’t run away with her fantastical premise, more the pity.
The songs are mostly catchy and adorable, but, together, they all sound the same after a while.
Oh, old school goodness. Don’t come across that often these days.
This is a “Huh?” book. Ask me about it a few days down the road and I’d give you a blank look.
Oh look, another story where female incompetence, emotional crackpot antics, and defeatism are celebrated as virtues.
The author has a big gun; he wants everyone to watch him play with it for over 700 pages.
If nostalgia is a drug, this fellow has managed to captured the perfect high in writing.
Oh, those were the days, nicely captured in this tribute to one of the most popular gamebook series of the 1980s.
