Fledgeling by Octavia Butler

This book started out great.  It was a fresh twist on vampires:  genetically altered vampires.  It starts out with the main character waking up with amnesia and a bruised and broken body, not knowing her name or anything about herself.  She’s on a quest to find out who and what she is, and who she is connected to.  A grown man finds her, thinking she is a ten year old child, and he takes her in, and before you know it, she’s feeding off of his blood and they are having illicit ”relations”.  This causes my stomach to turn, since he is described as “furry” and she is described as a waif that looks to be ten years old.  The book suddenly switches moods when the main character abruptly goes from knowing nothing and having an inquisitive attitude to becoming the bold, outspoken leader of the several individuals she is collecting along the way in her quest to find out about herself.  It seems as though the author put down the project after the first few chapters, then picked it up a few months later to resume writing the book…forgetting the whole attitude of the book.  I won’t go into detail on the numerous TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS I found in the book.

Needless to say, I became annoyed by this book and had to stop reading it about halfway through.  I wouldn’t recommend this book.  It’s a great concept, but it’s just not presented well at all.  It just seems as though the author didn’t get a second opinion, and didn’t have a schooled editor.

    I was just looking for this information for a while. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative websites in top of the list. Usually the top web sites are full of garbage.
