Kiss the Dead (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter)

Kiss the Dead - Laurell K. Hamilton I tried, really, but just could not finish. After only about 80 pages, I gave it up. I got tired of the repeating information I already had, literally within paragraphs of each other. I got sick of hearing Anita described as a monster (very curious how many times it happened but couldn't bring myself to re-read so I could count and see).
I figured I was done with the series after Hit List but after reading 20 books, I felt pretty committed, so I gave it a try and just couldn't do it.
So, Anita, it was fun at first and I'll miss those early days but I think we've outgrown each other. (Just for the record, I think that's what Laurell Hamilton should say as well.)
