I'm on page 111 of 439 of Petals on the Wind: Random Musings: Fifty Shades of Grey made me realize I do not enjoy 500 pages of sex. Petals on the Wind has made me realize I do not enjoy 400ish pages of consensual (I think, at least) INCEST. I DON'T KNOW HOW I AM GOING TO FINISH THIS GOD AWFUL BOOK.

**Update: finished**
This may contain some spoilers so read at your own risk.

This has to be the most poorly written book EVER. I can't believe I suffered through it. Every single man that Cathy encounters touches her inappropriately or rapes her but later she falls in love with them. The hell? WHAT THE EFF IS GOING ON? I understand she was locked in an attic with her siblings for 3 years, 4 months and 18 days BUT I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW SHE CAN BE SO LAX ABOUT MEN TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HER. And on the other hand she plays the role of teenage vixen who runs around in lingerie in front of a 40 year old man who adopted her. I JUST CAN'T. And on top of it, she still has that gross thing with her brother going on. Needless to say but I don't plan on finishing the rest of this series. I don't understand what role Cathy played. Hurt and damaged child? Slutty, teenage vixen? Ballerina? Girl who was lusted after by every.single.man. she ever met? And why does everyone die? Rather than tying up story lines or creating additional story lines, everyone that complicated the story just died.
