The Lunatic Cafe (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #4)
Abridged CDs • 5 CDs, 6 hours
Vampire hunter and zombie animator Anita Blake is an expert at sniffing out the bad from the good. But in The Lunatic Café, she's about to learn that nothing is ever as it seems, especially in matters of the not-so-human heart.
There is absolutely no character development unless you count relationship drama as such. There is absolutely nothing that would build and explain the world within the series, it just sits there with tiny hints and glimpses, but gives nothing that would satisfy a solid reader. There is absolutely no cuteness and sexiness in ...more
But, hey, this book was written first so I have a pretty good idea on who might have had the original idea.... (I'm smart like that.)
I liked this book slightly better than the last one. Anita is still pretty annoying, but I can still appreciate a few things about her.
I crossed my arms on my stomach. A psychologist would have said I was closed off, uncommunicative. Fuck them.
See, I like that!
In this book, we ...more
Hamilton tries to introduce a love triangle. Tries. It ends up being a dating competition, and reminds me of a poorly written sitcom. Not what I would expect from a couple of super powerful, super sexy men. Anita was an even bigger disappointment, relationship wise. We learn that she is such a badass who doesn’t date because of a bad relationship. ONE bad relationship. Big deal. Who hasn’t had their heart b ...more
I love this book! The Anita Blake series is AWESOME! Unfortunately, there are a few books in this series that just flat-out stink. The Lunatic Cafe is most definitely NOT one of t ...more
This is really a great series, at least the first 11 books are great. Way better than anything written by Stephanie Meyer. HA!
Re-read: October-November 2015
The plot: Anita is called to help investigate two different cases, the first is murder case with the police and the second is a missing persons case she reluctantly agrees to help with. This book is the first in the series to go into detail about the werewolves and other shapeshifters in Anita's world and we find out more about Richard and the pack structure as well as learning more about the different types of weres that exist.

1) Client walks into Anita's office and asks her to do something. She refuses.
2) RELATIONSHIP DRAMA!
3) Dolph calls her to the scene of the crime.
4) Someone attacks Anita for no good reason.
5) The most disgusting crime scene EVAH!
6) MORE RELATIONSHIP DRAMA!
7) Oh, crap, there's a plot we're supposed to tie up. Okay, well, X does it.
8) Jean-Claude/Richard tries to get in Anita's pants. Anita makes stupid agreement.
9) BIG SHOWDOWN.
These books are getting formulaic. I guess if the formula were a ...more
Her yerde ismini duyuyordum bu kişinin.Ha,bu kim mi?
Genellikle yataktan şu şekilde kalkan,penguen delisi,ilk 5 kitabı okumama rağmen hala çözemediğim insan evladıdır
Anita benim hem çok sevdiğim(tabii şu an için) hem de çok acıdığım bir karakter.
Kıza bir rahat yok.Hep bi koşuşturmaca içerisinde.Hatta kitabı okurken '' yeter be,bi nefes alsın kız '' dediğim yerler bile oldu.
Yine güzel bir kitaptı.Şu Edw ...more
Anita is this tough as nails chick who doesn't like help, ask for help, or respect you if you offer her help. She is hard core all the way. I get what the ...more
For some reason I can't seem to get bored of this series. Even more, I can't wait to start the next book to see what happens :D
Anita Blake has got a hot date, with Richard, the werewolf she's been dating for a few months only. As she describes, they're still not very intimate, since they barely know each other. But as you know, if you've read this book, their relationship just goes really fast, way too fast in my opinion.
Jean-Claude is still trying to interfere with their relationship, for some reason. At this point I think this love-triangle, (turned into love-sq ...more
I found the mystery part was a bit lacking, it became a filler in between the romance/love triangle issues. I feel it needed more than the last 20 pages to round up what was actually quite a good idea for a story. It also required no sleuthing, it was a bit of a cookie cutter ending where everything fell into place a bit too neatly just so that the book ...more
The police also have a man, a human, who has been savaged by a massive, wild animal with human intelligence. Unfortunately the shapeshifters and police aren’t sharing information, leaving Anita to work both sides as bes ...more
*Warning: possible spoilers ahead.*
