At first it was difficult to disassociate the Dahl I knew as a child from this dirty, almost perverse Dahl. I got this book originally because I was told about the sexual content of the book and I wanted to see for myself!
I didn't finish the book. It wasn't that I wasn't enjoying it as such, I just put it down one day and never got round to picking it back up again. Maybe one day I will finish it. It was odd. I have to admit I only got up to page 74 but there didn't seem much of a story coming together. Or at least, not one I was particularly interested in.
