    Christian is a dick. What is it you find appealing about him? Did you read that review? What if he acted as much like a dick as he already does, but instead of being really really ridiculously good looking, looked like George Costanza?

    If you read all three books you would not think he's a dick.

    For some reason the phrase "inner goddess" as a descriptor for her vag makes me think the guys actually fucking a lady midget in a toga that she has crammed between her thighs. Either that or vagina has a second smaller vagina inside of it that she can extend out xenomorph style.

    I assume that Ana's second xenomorph vagina wears a tasteful, tiny vagina toga as well, because it's a goddess after all.

    Lumsden actually kept a running tally of all the series' most recurrent (read: trite and overused) words and phrases. Here it is for the first book:

    Word Count:
    "Oh My" - 79
    "Crap" - 101
    "Jeez" - 82
    "Holy (shit/fuck/crap/hell/cow/moses)" - 172
    "Whoa" - 13
    "Gasp" - 34
    "Gasps" - 11
    "Sharp Intake of Breath" - 4
    "Murmur" - 68
    "Murmurs" - 139
    "Whisper" - 96
    "Whispers" - 103
    "Mutter" - 28
    "Mutters" - 23
    "Fifty" - 16
    "Lip" - 71
    "Inner goddess" - 58
    "Subconscious" - 82

    Incorrect. Or, actually, correct- I would think he was an entire bag of dicks.

    Seriously. I know how the books end, I don't think it's a believable or complete redemption. I just hate that guy.

    If I were developing it, I'd put microscopic suction cups all over the inside of it to suck the unsuspecting victim's member and issue all up.

I suppose alot of it is just being in the right place at the right time or the author happened to know the right people in promoting the book?

    I normally avoid this sort of genre but I am kind of curious about this book. Maybe just to see if it deserves all the hype it's getting. I work in a library and my library has an extremely long waiting list. We definitely aren't banning the book like some libraries are. The waiting list is so long that unless the library orders more copies, if you requested it today, you would wait about a year to get it. I'm not kidding.
    All the same applies here at my library too. Some of the librarians checked it out to see what the fuss was about and were disappointed, so I won't bother.

    Maybe I should read this book. I thought "inner goddess" was just a metaphor for, like... the uninhibited part of her psyche that thinks fucking is a jolly grand idea. I didn't realize it meant small toga-clad inner xenomorph vagina.
