I have read this one before, though, so I know how charming it is. Didn't get past the first chapters, this time, however.
Violence as entertainment is just not my thing, not even in book form. For the life of me, I cannot understand how my husband of, like, 25 years could ever have thought I would enjoy this...
It took me almost 100 excruciating pages to realize I had already read this, too.
As I finished it last time, I had no qualms putting it down now.
Conclusion : I desperately need a good book! Where are all the good books??
