This book seeks to present itself as Victorian erotica, in the then-popular style of memoir. However, throughout, the "writer" is clearly overcome by her own sense of self-importance, titillates with promises of erotic events to come that occur infrequently, and tells her story in a confusing way. Her too-frequent direct comments to her audience are so unbearably annoying that the listener simply has to grit her teeth and bear with them--if she is going to stick with the book at all.
I hung in with this book to the end, but really, "gentle listener"--save your money on this one.
This was a really good book--made even more enjoyable by the wonderful job of reading by the narrator. I was very pleasantly surprised by this choice, since I hadn't heard anything about it before. Highly recommended.
