HI, I'm brand new here but love the site and the forum. I loved COTCB and VOH, but the rest . . . .
Yes, hate reading about the "pleasures". Yawn. If I EVER have to read about Jon's p***s and how large he is and how great they fit (blah blah blah), I'm going to vomit into my own mouth. And Ayla, for as perceptive as she allegedly is to nuance and body language doesn't get that he is jealous? He is whiny and immature and emotionally stunted. He seems to have nothing really going for him but his looks and his big ***k.
FInished reading the Painted Caves today and was tremendously bored and think it felt unfinished with where a couple of the main [bad] characters were left. The detail in the books on the very boring Donier Tour was either exquisite or excruciating, depening on your point of view.
Glad this series is over - for a series that started with such promise, it really kind of disintegrated.
Think I'll stick with my beloved Diana Gabeldon and the Outlander series.
