A Very Fun Read

I had a great time reading MaryJanice Davidson's 'Dead and Loving It'. Although it seems like they were too short(I kept muttering 'That's IT?' when the stories were done), but they were cute thumbnail sketches of the wacky and fascinating lives of vampires, werewolves and fairies...more fairy stories, MaryJanice! I loved the intersection of the Wyndham wolves with Queen Betsy, and it cracked me up to see the disbeleif that they could have in not recognizing otherworlders as real.

I agree with the other reviewer who said not to read all four of the short stories in DEAD AND LOVING IT all at once. Read back-to-back, although a quick read, the stories are all extremely similar--there are even phrases in the stories that have been used, word for word, in the one that came before it. That said, all four stories deal in some way with werewolves, specifically ones from the Wyndham clan. The stories are short, sexy, and to the point. Although I enjoyed the premise of all of them, the use of the 'c' word to describe the female anatomy irked me, so much so that I had to, at times, set the book aside. However, SANTA CLAWS, MONSTER LOVE, THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A WEREWOLF, and A FIEND IN NEED are all fast-paced stories that die-hard fans of MJD will enjoy. Overall, not a bad book, although the typographical errors and the repetitive phrases (even some entire scenes appeared recycled from the previous short story) keep it from being a true winner.

    The Problem Is...

    That two of the stories have relationships that begin as 'rape'. I never could get past that, it really bothered me. Even if the women were into it, it was written so that the woman kept saying no but the man did what he wanted. Very disappointing. The final story was great though. I wish that it had been a book on it's own. So go to the library and take it out, read the last story and take it back then you won't feel like you wasted your money. Everything else that I've read of hers was great though and I just ordered yet another book. I'm going to pretend that this one never happened. Ah, denial...
