In the first half of this pretty bad book the author tells stories about how he actually wrote a good book, The Hot Zone. It is like one of those "The Making Of ______" movies where all the actors tell you how they knew right away the movie would be a huge success. Those movies about making movies are boring. Imagine how much more boring it would be in book form. The title is misleading because the majority of the book has nothing to do with what is in the title. The author is obviously in a slump or in need of money as the quality here is way below what he has done in the past.
George RR Martin either can't write an ending, or chose once again not to in an effort to get us to buy his next book. In his last book he just abruptly ended the narrative then promised in the narrative that all would be answered in "A Dance With Dragons." Well, he tricked us again. I have decided to boycott all future George RR Martin books.
On the other hand, maybe he just is really bad at writing endings. Either way, you will feel very dissatisfied in the end.
Any self-respecting man will not listen to this dribble. The chick meets a vampire in the library then spends an entire hour talking about the attraction they felt and what it means to her and possibly him psychologically, spiritually, intellectually and politically. Then, just to beat a dead horse more, she calls her friends and they talk about it at even greater length.
This book illustrates clearly why men and women are not from the same planet.
The speakers really just spent their time trying to promote their books and seminars. There was very little substance.
Way too much detail that adds little to the plot or character development. For example, I don't really see a need to know all the brands of furniture the main character picked out. It is almost like the author is just trying to make the text longer by adding a lot of detail.
