Beli novel ini karena tertarik baca sinopsisnya di majalah cosmopolitan. Selain ceritanya kontroversial, cara pengarang menulis cerita juga enak bacanya. Nggak berbelit-belit dan yang pasti full of drama. Diem-diem jadi bayangin gimana sosok machonya si Paul yang diceritakan udah lumayan umur tapi masih mampu menarik hati Jeanne dari petemuan yang nggak di sengaja. Menarik.

what did I learn from this book? That Marlon Brando is a skeezy perv who likes Grandpa sweaters and well shaped breasts. Well, there was also a lot of useful information about the release/making of this film.
