"Brilliant. A beautifully crafted story of obsession, sex, violation . . . gut-twisting . . . goes deliberately too far, climaxing in one of the most authentically shocking endings in recent fiction."--The San Francisco Chronicle« less
I was very disappointed with this book. On the back cover, their was a review comment comparing this book to THE STORY OF O. This was a gross misjustice to THE STORY OF O. There is no comparison. The author appears to be suffering from ADHD. The story line was all over the place, while I would consider this book a thriller, I think to term it an erotic thriller just not true. Just because a book contains sex, doesn't make it erotic.
I thought the ending was just stupid, unless the author intended a sequal. I saw in some of the other reviews that there is a movie out there based on this book? Hollywood must have been desperate.
