    Vampire hunter and zombie animator Anita Blake is an expert at sniffing out the bad from the good. But in The Lunatic Café, she's about to learn that nothing is ever as it seems, especially in matters of the not-so-human heart.

    Overall

    I started this series in the later books, and I usually go back and listen to the first books if I can. This was an instance where I should have left good alone.

    The writing itself was not very polished on every level. The plot was weak and for the first time in a Luarell K. Hamilton story I found myself bored. Add to that the tedious self analysis Anita seems to do every single step of the way.
    Quite frankly, if this was the first book I read for this series, I would never have read any others.

    The single most annoying thing is Anita herself. Anita is such a cliche in this book, that I found that I couldn't stand her. She is SOOOO full of herself all of the time, I just kept thinking what an absolutely terrible girlfriend she would be. Everything was about her, constantly. This made the rest of the characters, especially anyone interested in Anita, seem so flat.

    I will say that this review is bias because I'm coming from the perspective of having listened to the newest books. I will say that if you are a current listener to Hamilton's books and are thinking about listening to the early books, save yourself the heartache.
