I rarely write reviews but this one was interesting and out of my usual reading norm. My norm is heavily geared towards big emotional payoff of romance, family dynamics, and fantasy. This didn't have a lot of emotional payoff. Gann took a while to ge ...more

"I believe I first found "The Last Hour of Gann" mentioned in a romance SciFi list of books on Goodreads, being nominated among the top reads of this particular sub-genre, so I memorized its name and kept it around for a while before rediscovering..." Read more of this review »

The Last Hour of Gann by R. Lee Smith
"Did not finish. I hate this book . I'm embarrassed to admit that I got 95% way through this literary version of a snuff film. Just when I thought I was through the worst, it took another depressing, disgusting nose- dive. I apologize to myself for..." Read more of this review »
Kay and 4 other people liked Maya's review of The Last Hour of Gann:
The Last Hour of Gann by R. Lee Smith
"It bluntly says men are rapists by nature and women should get along with it.
*me screaming in frustration*

Mild spoilers ahead.

Romanticising rape is an awful thing and I don't get why so many women love these kind of crap novels. Over two th..." Read more of this review »

Teresa Medeiros
“Do you know what the best thing about getting my sight back will be?” he asked softly.
“No,” she replied, all of the bravado gone from her voice.
Straightening, he took one step toward her, then another. She refused to give ground until he was almost
on top of her. Feeling the air shift as she retreated, he clumsily flanked her until their positions were
reversed and she was the one backing toward the door. “Some might believe it would be the joy of
watching the sun dip below a lavender horizon at the end of a perfect summer day.”
When he heard her back come up against the door, he splayed one palm against the thick mahogany
behind her. “Others might judge it to be perusing the velvety petals of a ruby red rose…”—leaning
forward until he felt the warm tickle of her breath against his face, he deepened his voice to a smoky
caress—“or gazing tenderly into the eyes of a beautiful woman. But I can promise you, Miss Wickersham, that all of those pleasures will pale in comparison to the sheer unmitigated joy of being rid
of you.”
Teresa Medeiros, Yours Until Dawn

“It’s a brand. And everyone who wants to can keep their books, rankings, reviews and their money by retitling which takes one day.”
Faleena Hopkins

Courtney Milan
“I’m asking you to marry me within the next hour.” He simply looked at her. “I can’t think of a reason why you should. I have no moral sense to speak of. I lie, I cheat, I steal, and I’ll probably drive you away screaming within the week. But if you marry me, I’ll only do those things on your behalf.”
Courtney Milan, The Suffragette Scandal

Faleena Hopkins
“If I sue you, I will win all the monies you have earned on this title… I will do that - but I’d rather give you the option.”
Faleena Hopkins

Kevin Hearne
“I should like to take this opportunity to name you Sherlock and point out that there is no shit.”

Night-Time Poetry (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 18, 2010 09:12AM
Description: A poem I wrote when I woke up after a restless and tiresome night. It's an old poem, that's for sure. Let me explain one line: "Noises ring in newly regained ear". I have a cochlear implant. I hear nothing without it. With it, after I put in charged battery and put it upon my ear, it rings awhile before sounds become clear.
