Flirt (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #18)
What a self-indulgent bit of tripe. The conceit for this book is that the plot stems from a thoroughly uninteresting and commonplace thing that actually happened (gasp!) to Hamilton and a few of her friends. The only amazing thing about it is that Hamilton and her friends seem to have blown the incident out of all proportion, into some sort of proof of their inherently awesome artistic sexiness AND something worthy of creating "art" around. The result is little more than a boring and extended anecdote, with a thin covering of "plot" that does nothing to advance the Anita Blake storyline (other than to add another man to her harem. But that hardly counts as advancement of plot at this point.). I'd say that Hamilton needs to get out more, but that would only lead to her having more boring experiences that she feels obliged to write entire books about. What Hamilton DOES need is a better editor, who might prevent her from using the exact same phrase to describe the exact same character ("He looked at me then, his eyes so wide there was a flash of white to them.") on two consecutive pages.
