it was ok

Having never read Nin before I guess I expected these stories to have some erotic or sexual content, but aside from one near the end, this was not the case. That's not to say I was disappointed, but I was interested in seeing what all the fuss had been about and I'm not sure I discovered what it was here. While I appreciate the historical context of her writing, ultimately it just wasn't for me. I guess I prefer linear storytelling, and while a few at the beginning and of this collection fit the bill, the majority were more esoteric and I found it a chore to keep reading as my mind easily drifted. So blame me and not her if you find this kind of writing appealing.
