Jenny My favorite is when they turn out to be the same person.

Sherwood Smith Oh, fun twists. Yes!

message 3: by Anna (new)

Anna I am currently reading a Dark Lord vs Mary Sue - I like a lot of other things about the book, the writer is an excellent storyteller, but her villains are always the evilest evil that ever eviled and her heroes are always perfect not only by the standards of their times but by the standards of ours. (but the book does have redeeming virtues, honest) It does mean that whenever I come to a major clash between the two I sigh and put down the book for a little while, not the author's intention I'm sure...

I do like it when I can see the villain's point of view. I may not agree with it, but I like to be able to understand it. I like culture clashes, told with humor & a sense of hope for the future. I have a lot of personal issues surrounding conflict (probably because my whole life has been a long series of culture clashes :-) and I like books that help me gain insight into how it can be negotiated.

Sherwood Smith Cultural negotiation and clashing paradigms are interesting to me, too.
