Ok. So. I never expect Showalter's writing to be Pulitzer winning. Her proses leave much to be desired and sometime I want to give her a thesaurus...Show More » BUT her beefcake with a heart of gold stories are entertaining and I enjoy them. This is NOT an accurate depiction of Playing with Fire. Showalter has created the dumbest, most immature woman alive. I hope she doesn't identify with Belle. This book is slow moving and boring.
