- Hmmm, I am not sold especially after hearing it may be a series and 8 books.
I really love this genre because majority are stand alones.
For example, I enjoy both Ruth Rendell's Wexford series and her stand alones, whether she is writing under her own name, or as Barbara Vine.
I wouldn't say I avoid reading a long series, although obviously there are constraints on your reading, because you really should attempt to read the titles in order, to get the best out of it, and see it as the continuous story develops.
What about you? Do you avoid reading "serial" titles? Do you stick to stand-alones?
