Here's the article "OH JOHN RINGO NO": http://hradzka.livejournal.com/194753.html?format=light
What do you think of it?
Please go back and read what I said more carefully - I said that I liked "Road to Damascus", but that "Ghost" and its sequels are absolutely dreadful and that I wouldn't touch them with a barge-pole. They portray an ultra-right-wing xenophobic attitude which I find frankly disturbing, mixed up with extremely unpleasant "hard core" sex scenes which I find revolting.
I like most of Mr. Ringo's stuff, but "Ghost" and its sequels are horrible books. Avoid! I honestly cannot imagine who they are written to appeal to, but I don't think I'd like to meet the sort of person who shares the viewpoint that they portray.
