    Chauncey Greer is the owner of Cute Boy Card Company, a thriving company in Atlanta. As a teenager, he was a member of a popular boy band, but left in disgrace when word got out that he and his band mate D were more than good friends. Chauncey is a free spirit, on the brink of 40 with a body admired by both men and women.

    Brenda says: "Great Book"
    "Horrible Writing"
    Overall

    I read a biographical book of Harris' and it was good, but this book is the stuff of poor, pathetic, a little anti-white, but that is not the worst part--the contintual rationalizing (or thinking he had to which was worse) for his super religious constantly bragging about his "notches"--

    plus this dreck is the most simplistic writing at maybe the 4th grade level. It is like the words from a boy pretending he is a man explaining and apologizing at the same time what his sexual preference(s) are,

    but there is no depth or feeling--an author in love with himself and his appendages--dead writing--plus if I heard one more time how he is "so gorgeous" (yuck)--enough-finally I erased the book half through on "800"th gorgeous,

    I loved Queer as Folk--and enjoy the reading in this genre--but this book made me sick---plus I wanted to love this book. Sad, plus a waste.

    All children mythologize their birth... So begins the prologue of reclusive author Vida Winter's beloved collection of stories, long famous for the mystery of the missing thirteenth tale. The enigmatic Winter has always kept her violent and tragic past a secret. Now old and ailing, she summons a biographer to tell the truth about her extraordinary life: Margaret Lea, a young woman for whom the secret of her own birth remains an ever-present pain.

    PA Law says: "Haunting and beautiful tale"
    "snore--characters depressing"
    Overall

    You can only so long about unattractive people who act the same--bore.

    About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace, and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia. And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster.

    A says: "Fantasy, with a touch of romance."
    "Dull, waste of credit"
    Overall

    Story is dull, overwritten, has no characters that are interesting--I was very sorry for wasting a credit.

    "boring"
    Overall

    One star is more than the book is worth. More like a cheap romance--characters had no depth--very dissapointed.
