What an amazingly strange book. Perhaps one of the most intriguing and weird "heroines" of any book I've ever read. I bought this book because..Show More » it was a daily deal on Audible. It caught my attention, though I can't say for sure why. The main character has not left her apartment or come in direct contact with another human in several years. Explaining why would spoil the story. But rather than shutting herself off from relationships, she has found unique ways to make connections and form "friendships" in her narrow little world. She makes her living, and a very good living, operating as a webcam sex worker, who also happens to be a virgin. She presents the details of her work in such a clinical way most of the time that she might as well be explaining her job as a nurse or a CPA.
The story evolves around the choice she makes to expose herself to the world, a step she thinks is extremely dangerous to others, in order to save another person and eventually, to have a personal relationship. By the end of the book you discover just how resourceful, brave and heroic she truly is.
The writing is tight, it moves quickly and I found myself unwilling to put it down. And while she is so clinical and matter of fact about her profession, there are a couple of topics that might make some people uncomfortable, but they are integral to the story and are what makes her the person she is and drives her to take what she considers a huge risk. The narration was excellent.
This was a great book, it was easily equal to The Girl in 6 E Possibly even Better. But the likeness to 50 shades is a farce. There is no D/s or M/s..Show More » dynamic in this book. In fact frankly I am a little disturbed that it would be compared to 50 shades but this book references things that are clearly non-consensual. Which is exactly the opposite of 50Shades much less any well written BDSM literary piece.
Don't but this because you are looking for 50Shades, buy it because you read The Girl in 6E and want to follow a brilliant story.
For the record, Violence and sex do not equal Dominant, they equal predator.
Great book! This story at first was pretty good. Then it got a little slow and I was getting worried. All of a sudden, the plot exploded! I now und..Show More »erstand why it got slow. Wow, I wasn't expecting the book to take off in the direction it did. I didn't see it coming at all.
