What a disappointment. I'm a fan of Elizabeth Hand - and one of the aspects of her writing that I really enjoy is her descriptive language, her often-over-the-top metaphors and similes. That aspect is sadly lacking here, and the plot of this story, to me, goes nowhere. If I picked up this book expecting a fairly typical thriller, then maybe I wouldn't have been so disappointed. But from Hand, I expect a lot more.

Melody Sage Yeah, I stopped reading this one halfway through. The writing was grating. I loved her short stories though.

Amy I like her short stories best as well - the stuff in Saffron and Brimstone really shines.
