it was amazing

First of all, why is this book not being discussed? It's been on every morning talk show and online newspaper, and it sold 2 million copies in one month?

Anyway - erotic novel; the first that I've ever read. I'd put this in a different category from the standard bodice-ripper, which I haven't bothered with in oh, say - 20 years or so. The writing in this book isn't fantastic in the beginning, but the story and character development are interesting enough to keep it going. And, of course, the innumerable, vivid, excellent sex scenes; which is why most of us are reading it in the first place. Definitely buying the sequel, and saving it for when I need a "pick me up"!
