Flirt: Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Book 18

When Anita Blake meets with prospective client Tony Bennington, who is desperate to have her reanimate his recently deceased wife, she is full of sympathy for his loss.

But what she also knows, though Tony Bennington seems unwilling to be convinced, is that the thing she can do as a necromancer isn't the miracle he thinks he needs.

Publisher's Summary

When Anita Blake meets with prospective client Tony Bennington, who is desperate to have her reanimate his recently deceased wife, she is full of sympathy for his loss. Anita knows something about love, and she knows everything there is to know about loss. But what she also knows, though Tony Bennington seems unwilling to be convinced, is that the thing she can do as a necromancer isn't the miracle he thinks he needs. The creature that Anita could coerce to step out of the late Mrs.Bennington's grave would not be the lovely Mrs.Bennington. Not really. And not for long.

    "Very Short!"

    under 4 hours. Reads more like a subplot in one of her usual works.

    "Silly story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Make it longer. This book should have been combined with another book in the series. It had an odd storyline - Flirting - and I still don't understand why the story revolved around how every in it flirted. I had a hard time determining which was the main plot story and which were the sub plot stories - they all mingled and felt rushed. Nothing adds to the overall story either.


    Would you recommend Flirt to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, of all the books in the series, this is one that can be skipped with no impact.


    Have you listened to any of Kimberly Alexis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, all the other Anita books she narrates. Great as always.


    Any additional comments?

    I am sad that audiobook charges full price for this short book.

    "rip off"

    This is another of her cheap short books just to get a title out. Like Micah, it is obviouis she didn't take the time to write a good book, just cranked out a book to sell. She can be such a great writer, it's sad she caves to the pressure to publish anything. Save your money for one she really tries on.

    "Flirt - Anita Blake"

    One of LKH shorter works, though she does make clear that the idea came out of an evening out w/ friends.

    Wish it had been longer, but I enjoyed it just the same! Also introduced new characters for the next book, Bullet.

    "Not a new plot"

    I really loved the first several novels in this series. This book and Micah seem like novellas, and shouldn't have been portrayed as new books in the series. They belong in a collection of stories. With Micah I even contacted audible to make sure the whole story was included, i couldn't believe the story was really so short with such little plot. The whole "lets abduct Anita and make here raise a loved one" has been done already. I actually felt as if I already heard this story before becuase it resembles an older story already done. I did like the story, felt it was just "filler" story for Hamilton to sell something though.

    I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!

    "Why?"

    Anita gets more and more self-absorbed with each and every installment. Why is Hamilton still writing these and why am I still listening? I guess it is like looking at a train wreck. You can't help yourself. Ugh!

    "So Disappointed"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one! I kept waiting for the story.


    What was most disappointing about Laurell K. Hamilton’s story?

    There was no point... and it was short! Not just short but it was over before it even began short!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was good... get rid of the "music and sound effects"


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Waste of a credit

    "Good intro of new character"

    Oh I so wish Nicky had been brought to this series sooner, he is a breath of fresh air. I had read the book but am so glad I bought it on audiobook so I could get a feel of his nonchalant voice. Kimberly Alexis' did a wonderful job of bringing him to life. We look forward to hearing him in the future.

    "Short Story"

    I read the reviews before buying so I knew that others said it was a filler and very short. I agree. I like the series so I just wanted to hear the book but I wouldn't waste a credit on it, I would spend the $10 on it if you want to hear the unabridged version. Credits are worth more than this book, cause it is short.
