Unabridged Chick

I'm Audra, a 30-something married lesbian. I love interesting heroines, gorgeous prose, place as character, and the occasional werewolf.
Rules of the Wild: A Novel of Africa - Francesca Marciano Elle magazine compared this book to The English Patient but I, respectfully, must disagree. This isn't to say Rules of the Wild isn't a wonderfully enjoyable read -- it just doesn't have the same sense of poetry or plot that The English Patient has. Rules of the Wild is more of a beach read, a little bit of escapist fiction set in Kenya featuring international ex-pats, drugs and alcohol, and a fringe of romance.
