Not wasting my time on a poor-man's Gaiman...NEXT!!!

Heartless - Anne Elisabeth Stengl

Bullet Review:

DNF at 10%

While parts of this remind me of Neil Gaiman's "Stardust" (never a bad thing), I am trying NOT to read anymore stories about idiotic, silly, romance-obsessed girls who whine about EVERYTHING and find the perfectly respectable guy boring.

Given this is a Christian title (wasn't aware of that when I was downloading), I have no doubt that there is some sort of Purity Message going on. The girl defiantly disobeys the Boring Respectable Stoic Prince (who, of course, has her "best interest" and untouched privates in mind); she acts silly and romantic to those who are obviously evil (and I'm saying "wearing a sign saying: I'm a Bad Guy" evil).

I stopped reading books like this years ago. I'm not about to waste more precious time on stuff like this. A shame, because the writing wasn't half bad.
