it was ok

In all fairness, I never finished this, so this review will be somewhat flawed, but the point is that this is one of the few books in my life which I have not finished. I just couldn't get past the fact that the first ten or so chapters all read something like this: "She displayed her ankles. He wanted to have sex with her. She displayed her shoulder. He wanted to have sex with her. She displayed her ear. He wanted to have sex with her."
I did not want to have sex with her, and I gave up very quickly. I don't wish to criticise this novel as I haven't read the whole thing, and it would be unfair to do so, but for my own personal taste it did absolutely nothing for me. Clearly I'm in the minority on this.
The only thing I can say is that I enjoyed the description.
