I first read this series as a High School student over 30 yrs ago, and loved it. In fact my Dad started reading and loved it also. 30 yrs later I took a chance and found it for my Nook just read the Bastard and can't wait to read the whole series over again.

This had so many great reviews and so I thought I would like it. He can write well, the history is interesting, but the relationships are shallow and selfish. Sex is written about from a very dry, unromantic place with little emotion if any. It seemed like something I was watching instead of experiencing and the decisions made by the characters are at times, ridiculous. I did finish it, but i will not read any of the others.
