I read this a long time ago. This work was very popular with teenagers in the sixties and seventies, as it was considered a classic, yet based itself on titilating sexual situations. With lightly brushing a coat of intrigue, the human condition, and many sexual situations over the story, I found I was drawn into the book, and the more I read, the more I understood what the author was trying to say about a great battle between good and bad, church and athiest temptations, without crossing an unseen line of erotica. Liked this very much.
