If you're looking for erotica with a story, then this is it. It is NOT a thriller/romance as the synopsis implied (well at least to me). I guess (now) I am a little prudish but if you like stories with words like "p--sy"and "p--ck" then you may like this book. I have only listened to a little as the repetitive sex scenes put me off but the story line was rather good at the start. I could imagine that it could have had possibility. The narrator took quite a bit of getting used to though, as it is rather a dry performance and she's a slow reader. Once I got used to it it wasn't so stressful. I would say that this is personal preference though as I speak rather quickly and like to listen to a lot of emotion in stories.
I love stories that bounce back and forth in time slowly filling the gaps in the reader's mind. This story was brilliant for this. The ending was a little too easy to guess due to the writer's foreshadowing skills, however it was a very enjoyable listen. I am very pleased that I bought this!
I love this author. I purchased this book because it was written by him and I thought it might be interesting. I found it to be very sensual and thought-provoking. It is a love story that looks at true human spirit and not fantasised versions that we think we should follow. It will make you think. You may be shocked, you might be outraged but if you digest the story and think about what the author is trying to portray, you will be a better person for having heard it.
Having the two narrators makes for fantastic reading!
