Re: Why I am disappointed with this book.
Well, Sefspeaks, that is why there is more than one writer out there.
Personally, I am not into vampire, werewolf and zombie books or movies, though as I kid I loved Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney Jr.
As for Meyers, the only book by her I have read was "The Host" (I am a big fan of science fiction). Even there, it was not the best sci-fi book I have ever read. What genres do you like? Maybe I can put you own to a few authors. BTW, I am in my 70s and have been a compulsive reader since I was five years old.
