    Great and refreshingly unusual. Very sexy!

    This was great. The insights were kind of scary, but so true as to make me reconsider my views on life and I hope make me a better person for having read it. The frank sexual content revolving around the characters was excellent and described raw human nature's power over our own logic and ethics.
