Forever Odd

August 1, 2010

Ugh I thought I’d be able to gloss over the normativities and just enjoy a trashy novel, but I was wrong. The villain is

-a sex worker
-a vegetarian
-an herbalist
-sex positive

whereas the hero is

-a fry cook
-who was saving himself for marriage until his One Beloved died
-who doesn’t do anything weird.

Boring. I was rooting for the villain the whole time, except she sucked. Plus pretty much nothing happened: SPOILER Odd finds somebody got killed, so he goes to a hotel, where there are some creepy people. THE END. I keep wanting to know what happens in this series, but trudging through its individual volumes is killing me. Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein is workin for me, though.
