Wild Things by Karin Kallmaker, Narrated by Abby Craden (Audiobook)


⭐⭐⭐⭐★

Review-lite

…because…this is a lesfic classic


  • First published in the 1990s, this book undoubtedly started off as a Xena fanfic – but has nothing really to do with the serial. It would’ve been an uber fic.
  • Like Denial from around the same time and probably with the same Xena-fanfic genesis, this has one MC (Faith) involved with the other MC’s (Sydney) brother
  • Like many books of that time, this has the two MCs struggling against their attraction towards each other
  • Struggles with owning one’s sexuality – a mid-thirties coming of age story
  • Big role of religion and homophobic parents contextualize and capture the period perfectly
  • We somehow find that the books written is the 1990s are incredibly emotionally passionate – the angst, the feelings, the struggles, the rampant emotions – all so passionate and immersive
  • The angst!
  • Great characterisation
  • We adore (read that in all caps) Faith Fitzgerald 
  • Abby Craden. Nothing more to be said there. Except…no one whispers as seductively as she does.
