Not the best...

All I can say is that 'The Best of American Erotica' has come along way since 2002. I'm a fan of the books in general, which is why I decided to purchase this, however didn't find it as erotic as the later versions. In fact, I found very little erotic in this edition.

I wouldn't recommend it.

Not that erotic

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

It's ok for a little titilation but no more than that. I haven't really listen to this genre before but it was slightly weird at times even for someone who considers themselves open minded.

Rubbish

Totally boring and not erotic in any way whatsoever. Narrator sounds as bored as I was. Impossible to finish.
