ADDICTIVE

I completed this book in two days! With most stories, there are usually areas of 'filler' which tend to drag, and I find myself skipping over paragraphs (and sometimes entire pages) in an attempt to get to the meat of the story. Not with Tipping the Velvet... I savore...
I completed this book in two days! With most stories, there are usually areas of 'filler' which tend to drag, and I find myself skipping over paragraphs (and sometimes entire pages) in an attempt to get to the meat of the story. Not with Tipping the Velvet... I savored every word. Ms. Walters' prose is flawless, her characters intriging and her story captivating... what more could a reader wish for?

Wow

I picked this up without looking at it first. The cover and title looked fascinating. I was very surprised what it actually was about. A love story between two/three women and the ups and downs that ensue. The graphic sexual content in Tipping the Velvet is pretty shock...
I picked this up without looking at it first. The cover and title looked fascinating. I was very surprised what it actually was about. A love story between two/three women and the ups and downs that ensue. The graphic sexual content in Tipping the Velvet is pretty shocking at first. I have never read a novel quite so sex-orientated. The more I read it the more I disliked it, but I couldn't put it down. I think the age to start this book would be something like 18+. Also, reccomending this book would be based on the individual, not in general. If you're someone who is easily offended don't read it.
