His Secret Little Wife is the story of a brilliant young cellist and her sexual affair with the famous composer and conductor who created her.

There are few things that I ask for from a book, with the very least being good grammar and punctuation, two things that His Secret Little Wife: A Novel does not have. I'm not a staunch prescrivtivist in the least, I like grammar to be generally correct if only for the fluidity of reading and understand what an author is trying to get across, semi-colons and full stops were invented for a reason after all, but this novel is tipped so far in favour of descriptive language that I found it hard to ...more

It's as if Lolita wrote a book from her perspective. .. unfortunately, unlike "Lolita" the writing doesn't hold my attention - page long paragraphs and ellipses make it feel overly dramatic rather than gripping emotions.

'His Secret Little Wife' is an interesting coming of age book that has the reader curious about what is to come... an easy read, I was able to finish this in a day, tho others may be able to finish in a few hours.

Normally I'd read anything about a cellist, but there's no musical passion in here, just a paedophile composer, sad.
