Whatever you like to do to avoid spoilers dnurse. I think some do white highlight, or write SPOILERS, whatever works best for you.

Who is everyones fav character so far??

Right now it's Erika for me, I think she has some real potential. It'll be interesting to see where all this goes and how it all ties in. I'm on chapter 51 right now. That's another thing I like about this book, nice short tight chapters with no silly dialog or endless boring descriptions. (yet)

Spoilers through chapter 29

***************************************



I don't have a favorite character yet. Carson is kick@$$ and I love brother/sister stories. Arnie having a mental handicap makes it especially endearing to me. Her partner Micheal makes me laugh! Roy is one of those absurd villians that humors the reader with his self absorption while disgusting us at the same time with wickedness. But Victor! He's so dark and terrifies me. Those scenes with him and Erika and her trying to accommodated and please him while he dominates and controls her fills me with such anxiety. I wanted to throw the soup in Victor's face. I'm pleased that you think her character will develop. I want to see her get away. I think I'll have a thing for Deucalion. I was obsessed with Phantom of the Opera so this reminds me of that. Maybe he'll end up with Erika or help save her. I can always hope. Oh, and Randall Six, he's going to be a threat to Arnie with his creepy obsession with that photo.

Micheal just made that Herman Munster joke in the autopsy lab. He's funny.

I love the New Orleans setting! I've been there with my parents and it brings back memories.

I like the brisk chapters too. Gives it a fast pace. But I love DK's descriptive style too. Whatever he wants to give us, I always enjoy it either way.
I'm inclined to believe in parallel worlds filled with dark bound Snow and Odd adventures.

I don't want to say to much as as your not as far along as I am.

These aren't really spoilers so I'm not putting them in white. Anyone that ventures into a thread about a specific book should know there probably will be spoilers anyway but I try to be careful and vague.

I have to laugh at the Roy character - he is soooo totally whacked out. He could have his own book and there would still be loads of material, but I'm happy he is just one of many great characters, it makes the book better, IMO. I never heard of most of the stuff he's into, I love it when I learn while also enjoying a good fiction book.

Haven't found out much about Deucalion so far. I need to go back and reread the first couple chapters I think.
I like the banter between Carson and Michael, they make a good pair.

This read is going to be tough with this forum acting so buggy. Especially with as fast as both of us read dnurse, we will be finished before the damn page loads!!

I WISH SOMEONE WOULD FIX IT!!
