Dear Book, it's not you, it's me

The Blood Countess: A Novel - Andrei Codrescu

Open Road Media is a publisher that if I am unsure of a book, I will try it anyway.  Usually, I end up loving it.  The few times I don't, and this is one, it is more of a case of the author's style not being to my taste.


There is too much telling and not enough showing in the Countess parts of this book for me, and for the more modern setting, I just can't bring myself to care.  Partly it is because of the overt sexuality, and not sensuality.  I  know it is about the Blood Countess, so over course it is going to be there, but there is a way to do it that doesn't smack of using breasts to get readers. 


The idea is interesting, and I have no doubt that several people will enjoy it this.
