Read in August, 2001

I was so excited in high school to read this book because I'd heard it had lots of sex in it AND it was the kind of book grown-ups say you should read anyway.

Bleh. I don't actually remember the story that well, but what I do remember is Lawrence's fatal combo of thinking himself an expert on female sexuality and completely misrepresenting it. Some of the worst men-writing-women I've encountered. Also: not even a very sexy book. A colossal disappointment.

I've heard other Lawrence books are more worth reading, but I'm skeptical.

Edward Platten 'Also: not even a very sexy book.' - I can point you to some raunchier material if you'd like, dear?
