Venom - Jennifer Estep I like Jennifer Estep, I really do. It's just Venom made me realize a few of her weaknesses. Did you know she's a serial repeater? Every theme, every allusion, and almost all descriptions will be repeated multiple times. It made me feel like she was batting me around the head with it. She also felt the need to tell me everything from the characters to the situations without giving me the chance to discover it for myself. It's fine to a certain point but gets frustrating in the long run.
For all of that she's an enjoyable writer. That probably sounds patronizing, but it's really true. For all her ticks she has strong characters and interesting situations. I look forward to more Gin books.
