I WANT MY MONEY BACK.
At first I was still hoping this second novel might be better than the first about this unnecessarily American and gay and vampiric "hero", since it was about a writer's weekend, but the unbearable egocentricity of the author (and his not-at-all endearing character) nearly make me throw up. Simon is pretentious and, like the book, boring, annoyingly stupid, and made all the worse so by the reader being expected to find Simon irresistible, charming and intelligent. Since that is never once given an ironic twist, and since the character can't display anything the author doesn't posess either - and doesn't actually ever try to show, instead relying on Simon to tell us again and again how wonderful he is - it does. Not. Work.
ETA: unlike eg. Joan Hess's novels. She's one of the many ratherbignames James cited as his group, yet she always manages to write wry, self-effacing humour, showing her heroines as interesting, flawed and intelligent beings.
I'm tempted to transcribe a whole chapter just to show how bad it is. Something like "I asked the butler who slept in which room" is spread over a whole chapter, with the butler always always always being referred to as "Lady Hermione's butler, Dingleby", with every sentence or so starting with "I did and then I did" and every tiny movement written out for no reason whatsoever (he opened the door and entered and closed the door etc. etc.). Furthermore, they always mention the others name in nearly every line of dialogue, as if the readers really were braindamaged which - ok - they have to be but I'm still annoyed by reviews and blurbs insisting this is delightful and endearing, "Yes, Simon."-"Ok, Giles."-"What shall we do next, Simon?"-"I think commit suicide, Giles?"-"Jolly well, Simon."
