Only those that made me laugh out loud were selected for inclusion. The title was The action continues with all your favorite ninja! Chapter book 10 is an all-new story Chapter book 10 is an all-new story based on the latest events in the hit Cartoon Network TV series. Margaret Brown's French Cookery Book. I lately have been binge-watching the old Peter Gunn series The lead, Craig Stevens, was a fine actor and very decent man to boot, and is always fun to watch.
The actress was probably pretty bright but in the show she, too, is a purring kitten moron. I guess it just would have killed the writers if she'd been given some intelligent lines, had discussed anything besides sweet nothings and how she was going to pout because Pete had to work. Well, the McGee books have female characters who sound an awful lot like that.

Less defensible is how McDonald kept writing them like that, mostly, right up until the end mids. I mean, by the s it was getting very, very out of step with reality.
Libidacoria: In a Plain Brown Wrapper by Kristie LeVangie
Oddly, in The Green Ripper the only one is the series that I really dislike , the female character is slightly more adult, capable, and coherent. Of course, he kills her off quickly enough, and in general McDonald whacks most of his female characters. Of course lots of men die in his novels, too.
And don't get me started on his sex scenes. In an interview, John Grisham said he only ever once tried to write a sex scene, and he thought it awful, so he never did it again. Most men, in fact, aren't very good at it. And McDonald is exceptionally bad at it. This is not him being sexist per say, just awkward and even embarrassing. Fortunately it's only, typically, a few pages per novel.
I've been meaning for ages to return and amend my review to say all of this. In fact, I even tried once, but couldn't for the life of me find how to get to my old reviews in Amazon's byzantine screens. But the recent emergence of the MeToo movement gave me even more incentive. It's certainly raised my consciousness: That made me feel that my failure to mention this in the original review here was a serious omission. Well, they all wanted to bed him in any case, so he little incentive to. But even at that, there are a number of moments in the books when he makes clear that McGee is a stand-up guy not given to taking ugly liberties.
More titles to consider
So at least there's that. Just go in with eyes open, aware that as marvelously skilled a writer as McDonald was -- and he really was one of the greats of the 20th century! See all 85 reviews.
