(no subject)

I've spent the better part of this morning wondering when I stoppd liking Lillian Jackson Braun.

For those of you who don't know, she's the author of the 'Cat Who...' mystery series. I used to adore the 'Cat Who...' books. I loved Qwill (yes, it's spelled with a QW), and the quirky residents of Moose County (400 miles north of everywhere), and Koko and Yum Yum (Qwill's two cats).

But I recently tried to read the latest book (The Cat Who had 60 Whiskers)... and I just couldn't get in to it. Didn't even get to the part where whoever it is who gets murdered gets murdered.

When did this series stop being interesting? I went back and re-read some of the earlier books (from the begining until just after Qwill moves to Moose County), and I still love them... but the new stuff sucks.

This makes me sad.
