I downloaded this hoping to let my teens listen to it, but was appalled by the subject matter. I was unfamiliar with its mildly pornographic content. Just wanted this to be in the reviews so other conservative parents would be aware.
I was interested in this book mostly because of its literary history. I wanted to see what people back then were interested in through their writings. I would say the story was ok, but not great by any means. On the other hand, this is NOT a book for children, it contains very erotic and pornographic parts in it, so be warned. Would I recommend? Maybe only to people like me who really are interested in history and so you can say that "you've read it". Otherwise if you're looking for an interesting book, avoid this one.
