I cant really understand why on the back of the book it reads that Lulu was once a little girl who was having a lack of love during her childhood, I didnt find anything that indicates something like that in the entire reading ( she cant blame her twin brothers ) but on the other hand yes! she was actually behaving like a child trying to find excuses all her life to justify her sexual behaviour when all she always did, it was to enjoy it the most. Also something that calls my attention is that the author Almudena spends almost 20 pages to talk about the way Pablo not Pablito takes her virginity or as is said in Spain... FOLLAN, I didnt really see the point in that. It is also funny to notice that Pablo after sharing with Lulu all about sexual experiencies after being in jail at the end of the book seems to me that he blames her because things between them went wrong and not even their little girl could help them to make things work it out. I cant say that it was Pablo`s responsability the way she was, she decided to be like that and period there is absolutly nothing else to say about it. She loved pollas and not pollas that`s it. This is what the book is all about.
I have not seen the picture yet and I dont think I will but if you are planning to read this book I would advice you that if you dont want to spend some time reading it better watch the movie it will be faster though the problem might be, is that it seems to me that it wil be like watching a XXX one... better read Eleven Minutes that book is really worth it. Sorry Grandes I just think your book isnt worth it at all... but this is only my opinion that sure isnt worth either, I am just expresing my point of view.
