The Patent Office

Recommended Posts

The disheartening part is that these books are very popular. This seems to be many women's idea of a romantic ideal. No wonder so many people are disappointed with the reality of marriage. At least the Disney heroines are getting progressively more spunky & having more realiastic romances.

I like fantasy but with a definite edge...if someone gets bitten it's even better. :roflmao:

Ad humour...where is the humour?!

somehow i overlooked this post yesterday :roll:

 

yes, i think the lack of humour (apart from the unintended one) is a huge no-no. and never mind the romantic ideal - they seem to be plain stupid. and rather simple in writing, to say it nicely :sleepy: maybe she didn't write them herself but had others do it for her - she certainly made a lot of money with it.

Yes, I saw a pic of her home once & she seems to have bought every pink & lacy & fluffy thing in existence.

 

She might have published 600 some books but there were probably only a few basic plots with variations. I suppose she could have had a platoon of secretaries churning them out.
