really liked it

A very strange and compelling narrative. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is because the ending is a little abrupt after the carefully measured pace of the rest of the narrative - but it works. It was just jarring when I read it the first time.

I'm not in the camp of "Oh, how grotesquely erotic and boundary-defying this is!" but I appreciate her intense attention to physical detail, during assault and pleasure both. Dorothy's voice is very unique.
