I enjoyed this. The story of the girl that depends on sex / her relationships / boyfriends / the feeling or the idea of being loved is interesting. However, it is also long and repetitive and exactly this: the story of a dependent girl. She start dependent and suddenly transforms in the last five pages of the book without much exposition. It is also a narrow story: the narrator clings to a monogamous worldview and never questions or reflects on it. It's a pity - both a longer exposition of or a questioning into the transition or a more complete reflection on the basic attitudes towards relationships could have been extremely interesting.
