If she's so good, I'd really like to know which books she's good in.
Besides "Jenna Starborn" the only other thing by her I've attempted to
read was "Heart of Gold" and I hated that one so much I couldn't finish
it, basically because the heroine started off in love with an utter
utter bastard whom I couldn't stand, so I didn't have much sympathy for
the heroine either, and the society, well it felt like it had been made
up for the express purpose of talking about racism and sexism... (sigh)

So tell my why I should bother with this author that so many of you
