4.0 out of 5 stars If Homosexuality Offends you Then Don't Watch the Movie, July 30 2003
Why on Earth a Homophobic person would watch this movie is beyond my understanding. This is a truly lovely story about, of course, Love, growth, decisions, insecurities and self discovery we all have to make when we are a teenagers. Yet, it adds the twist of it being a lesbian story which can be more painful for teenager girls, since families want you to bring home the boy next door not your "girl"friend.
Yet, I felt that this movie told a story without being "perverse" and added comedy, mixed with the difficulties of being young.
For those of you who can't except "individuality" in people then please don't waste your time watching this movie and then leaving unhelpful and rude comments.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings, April 4 2003
When I first opened up an Anita Blake novel, I would consume it and then move on to the next one. The await for Narcissus in Chains was almost painful, so I have to confess I was slightly disappointed when I finally got my hands on it.
Don't get me wrong, it still has the dark flavor of all Anita Blake books, but how much Kinky S&M sex scenes do we need? It was getting to the point where I wondered where the plot of this book went to? At first it was "Fun" to read, but half way through it, I was tired of the sick twisted sex games. It seems like Laurell K. Hamilton is torn between keeping Anita the "Saint" or the "Naughty" Anita. 
Yes, I know who complains about too much sex in a book? I only do because it use to be the erotic accent to her books, and now it is the main theme.
Also, how many times does she have to "rescue" her pard? Or the Vampires? Or Richard? And so Forth? Or have to play the tough chick ? It is starting to feel like the same story with a new setting. I know Laurell can do better. I loved Obsidian Butterfly for that new story line. How about a Book through the eyes of someone else for awhile? Or a bit more about Anita as a child? Etc.?? Just some thoughts.
Now my postive thoughts on this book. I'm glad that some of the issues were resolved. And that some of the new characters seem to be interesting, and perhaps a little less twisted as the present characters. For those of you who have read the book you will understand what I mean. I adored that it was thicker and longer then most of the other books. And the fact that Laurell K. Hamilton seems in conflict over her characters, she does seem close to finding a comfort zone for Anita to play in.
A great read, but may be slightly disappointing to some hard core fans. I do hope the next one holds something new and less Soft core porn :)....
