    Stories of people's lives

    The author wrote about people who lived foreign ways to all of us today. It was very real and disturbing at the same time. I have never read anything like this before. It was well written and thought provoking.

    I think the story line and characters were extremely well developed. When I started the first book I had to re-read the first few pages over and over again because I didn't comprehend what I was reading initally and when I came to the realization of what was being told it drew me in further. Its a great study of behaviors and interactions because of the innner torment and tormoil that the main character undergoes. The story line and development in this is series is also one that I always look back on and ponder...and even re-read. Its got depth and imagination.

    DISAPPOINTING

    This story was intriguing but I didn't like the sexual graphic descriptions so I didn't read past Book I. The author got such great reviews I was looking forward to a well-written book. The story and writing were excellent but the sexual parts were offensive.
