Setivsi se kako sam voleo da citam Lustbardera kao klinac uzeh ovu knjigu da citam i osecaj je bio totalno drugaciji. Radnja prati dva brata kriminalca i tece u dva nezavisna toka koji se ponekad prepliću. Ali tako je jadno uradjena da sam zaista knjigu izgurao ne na znatizelji sta ce biti vec na misice. Kraj takodje ništa posebno. Vracam se Sandrsonu u sledecim citalackim poduhvatima

c1996: I have travelled far with Nicholas Linnear and this book did not leave me wanting. Highly recommended but start with #1 else it may lose its impact. Oriental intrigue that no other writer has managed to date. I agree wholeheartedly with Kirkus reviews which stated: ""Second Skin dances between generations, summons up characters from earlier novels, and deals with time past almost like Proust ... As Lustbader creates a complex, giant microchip of a story, mere human readers enjoy sunrises ...more

Read this in the mid 90's when just a horny teen - the Ninja stuff (and of course the sexy stuff) blew my massively hormonal juvenile mind. Was getting a little tired of the series by then but still gets the top ratings I've given the other books in the series. Haven't read this since, and I honestly don't know if I'd like it just as much but a nostalgic 5 stars for sure - for then at least.

Superb! The action, the thriller, the erotica, the knowledge of the orient, the historical facts, all amounts to a wonderful piece. Leaving me totally exhausted when finished. Bravo Lustbader! He is my all time favorite author

I wasn't real impressed with this book. I think a lot of that was due to the fact that it is a story that has characters that were started in a previous book that I had not read.
