english review:

As it says in the description of "Waiting at Eros": blush: (love scenes are not graphic) This is a suggestive romance. Okay, the love scenes are indeed not described in a graphic way, because there are absolutely no love scenes in this story! Unfortunately romance and the likes are missing as well. The so called suggestive "Romance" you can not really call romance, because "Waiting at Eros" is no love story, not at all. As most it is a very short shortstory, about four women meeting at Piccadilly Circus and all having one thing in common: They are waiting for: Timor! I will not give away more of the story, because in "Waiting at Eros" actually nothing really happens. Just for the epilogue, which is somewhat surprising, I give a slightly better rating than the story deserves in my opinion. Thank God it was a very short story so at least I have not wasted any more of my time.

german review:

Wie heißt es so schön in der Beschreibung zu "Waiting at Eros": Blush: This is a suggestive romance (love scenes are not graphic). Okay, die Liebesszenen sind wirklich nicht besonders bildlich beschrieben, denn es gibt überhaupt gar keine! Romantik oder ähnliches fehlt leider ebenfalls. Also als "Romance" kann man diese Geschichte wirklich nicht bezeichnen, höchstens als sehr kurze Frauen-Kurzgeschichte. Vier Frauen treffen sich am Piccadilly Circus, alle haben eine Sache gemeinsam: Sie warten auf: Timor! Mehr will ich nicht verraten, da bei "Waiting at Eros" eigentlich nichts passiert. Allein für den Epilog, der einigermaßen überraschend ist gibt es eine etwas bessere Bewertung als die Geschichte meiner Meinung nach verdient. Gott sei Dank war die Geschichte so kurz, da habe ich wenigstens nicht noch mehr meiner Zeit verschwendet.
