I'm surprised to see Firebird on your least favorite list. It's a really good book. Starts out a bit slow though. I've been working on a re-read. Didn't realize how long it took to get to the good stuff the first time.

I got through 2/3 of it and couldn't go any further. The plot was way too slow for me, meandering around and around. Plus, the constant "moon breasts"and "milk calves"and mocking of the one curvy, "fat"character really started to bother me.

I liked it alright, but the animal testing stuff really bothered me. I liked Bonk the best, I think. :)

Yes, please do your list!
