Until recently there was nowhere that I could go geek-out with other literati. So I thought that once a month I would host a virtual book club here at The Spinecracker; somewhere we could share thoughts and argue about plots. I usually keep the discussion open all weekend long, so jump in at your leisure.
Night Shift by Lilith Saintcrow
I want to start off by saying, "I really enjoyed this book!" But there were a couple of small issues I had, and I just wanted to know your thoughts about them.
One of the things that I want to discuss is her writing style. Was it just me or did you find it hard to keep up with her many internalizations? At about half-way through I finally got the swing of things and her style didn't become a small roadblock in the story for me. Am I alone here?
I'm not sure why, but the whole Mikhail as her lover/mentor/mourning-thing didn't connect with me. Am I just a cold hearted bitch or was he not meant to connect with me? Maybe I'm not suppose to like him since Saul is on the scene.
Saul: Can anyone explain to me why it's so bad for a were and a human to be close? I'm a bit foggy there on the details. He was so kind, and domesticated...and didn't once foreshadow to any risk of danger. That will be interesting to watch!
I really enjoyed Jill. She never quite did what I thought she might do, and I loved that about her character. I know I'll be reading the rest of the series in hopes of uncovering more about her, what about you? Are you hooked? Will you read-on?
