What's to say, except that her books are fun, fast, contemporary, and well structured? A pro in the architectural game, I guess she takes framing and materials...and details...seriously.
Lydia and her Mom, Lydia and Bill...she does keep these relationships shy of the kitsch borderline. Thank goodness. For me, I wish she'd keep them even further away than she does.
But it's carping about a really intelligent, enjoyable series.
To Ms. Rozan:
Hope you're reading this. I read the interview you gave to Art Taylor. If Lydia, your fictitious madam butterfly, has to fall in love with Bill, the old white guy, does she have to have a falling out with a Chinese man (why Chinese? why not white? why not...)to make her think that Bill is the guy she loves? Was it ever possible for this fictitious Chinese woman that you created to ever love some one else besides the old white guy? Was it ever possible for Lydia to love a Chinese guy, or is she "too American".
"The Chinese guy that Lydia hasn't dumped yet."
I liked the diffuculty because it was hard to make a cose but I did
Just to stimulate some conversation on Ms. Rozan, I want to thank her for providing a pair of protagonists who are a part of a plausible mystery without the need for gratuatous language, violence or sexual references. People like this do exist.
I love these books!! I do hope Bill and
Lydia eventually "get together" in the
romantic sense. However, regardless
of whether or not they ever do, I intend to
keep reading this wonderful series!
i'm new. i need some help. does anyone know of ten physical places in rozan's books. (only in nyc). these could be museums, streets, anything in her novels. i've only read 1 book.
