Liked it for a while. I liked the main character's open attitude towards, and enjoyment of, sex. But beware novels written in the first person. The entire story takes place in one setting, and involves primarily one person, and much more on her thoughts than her actions. There is very little character development - she is the same at the end as when we meet her. And there is no plot.

This is not a novel. The writing is lazy. The main character has the belief that hygiene is not important and conducts her life accordingly, but no consequence is ever described. So, no character development and no story arc.

If it were a short story, I would rate it highly as it is innovative and brave. Unfortunately, it is a short story that was allowed to go on too long.
