An interesting book.

Lately, I have been reading a lot of fiction written by women, so it was different to read something written by a man!

I think the underlying theme of this book is desire, and the inability of the characters to control themselves instead of going for exactly what they want. There are broken marriages, unfulfilling careers, Internet fantasies, and a registered sex offender in this book. A lot is covered in 300 or so pages - it is a fast read, but not a book I really wish to read a second time.
