I was totally disappointed with this book. I could not stomach it and did not finish it!! I was expecting a love story of some sort but what I got was not even close.Rape and humilation is what I found. Hypnotic, my foot. I wanted to hurl. I WILL NOT read the other two books in this trilogy.
Awesome books, they definitly deserve a warningt and are not for everyone! Dont be afraid to enjoy them! And read the trilogy, it worth the time,l. It opened my mind to.the world of true erotica!
This was my first and last Anne Rice book. I bought it thinking an erotic read would be a change, but I am not into kidnapping, rape, sodomy, perversion, sadistic, and masochistic behavior toward another human being let along to children. Too sick to finish, and a huge waste of my hard earned money. It was my first and last book like this one, and definitely my one and only Anne Rice book.
First let me say Iove most of Anne Rice's body of work.. but this one just fell far short of what I have experienced with her other novels. Her other stories evoke vivid images in my mind , almost like I'm watching a movie while I'm reading... but this book IMO could barely be called erotic literature. It read more like a masochistic Harlequin romance novel. I am not a prude or puritanical in my believes or lifestyle and all I can say is this was just a plain boring read. The premise I found truly unique and captivating but the book to me never capitalized on that. It de-evolved into just a mindless and not very illuminating or inspiring tirade of spanking and humiliation. The character development just wasn't there for me to invest my interest... despite brief moments of brilliance, overall the characters felt colorless and one dimensional. I had high hopes and I will finish the series since I bought the set but honestly I think it is my least favorite of her works.
I don't consider myself a prude but this book was more sadistic than sexual. I usually finish all books that I start except for this one. This was probably the only book I was able to put down without finishing and drop into the waste basket. I guess there is a 1st time for everything.
