I really tried to like this book. Thompson is an exquisite artist and his literary ambitions are on high display here. But it felt sexually exploitive to me and perhaps (due to my own sensitivities as a reader) unnecessarily harsh. The end is quite touching, but I still finished the book disappointed and disconnected.
