    "Not Worth the Credit"
    Would you try another book from Madeline Hunter and/or Jill Tanner?

    I really like Madeline Hunter, but this book isn't up to her usual writing standard. The story is boring.


    Any additional comments?

    Not sure why this book was rated so highly.

    "Struggling to get through the first half!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narration is cold and haughty. It's difficult to distinguish the characters from the aloofness and unemotional tone of the narration. Mostly I feel like the characters are unlikable.


    Would you recommend Lessons of Desire to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. I will finish it because I paid for it, but I mostly use the book to fall asleep. Sounds rude, but it is absolutely true.


    What didn’t you like about Jill Tanner’s performance?

    She is emotionless. Her narration causes the characters to come off as emotionless and unlikable. I cannot cheer for them or even like them. They seem to have no pathos.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. I don't care about the objectives of the characters. The seduction scenes are so cold that I cannot believe that anything meaningful exists between the characters other than calculated manipulation.


    Any additional comments?

    I will not take another chance on this author or narrator because I cannot tell if the problem is with one, the other, or both.

    "Not what you may think, but still very good."

    A story that has and old time way breaking away the barriers of the Man vs. Women. Both characters are very strong, and sometimes down right erritating to the point that you want to yell at them to "wake up". If you like the 1800's, a lesson in compromise and a great desire for romance - than this one is for you!

    "Boring"

    This book was the essence of boring - stimulating no interest or enthusiasm
