I was certainly in for a surprise when I started listening to this "whatever"... I didn't realize that this is supposedly an erotic piece. I am 66 years old, and I am NOT a prude, by any means. I am a fan of the Japanese culture, which is what led me to this selection. This thing is just a joke. I don't know what audience this is geared to - men? Young boys? Certainly not women. But since I now own the thing, I tried to listen to it. It actually had me laughing out loud when I was not raising my eyebrows in disbelief at its outright stupidity. Have I completely left the planet? Unbelievable that someone wrote this, but then to have some editor say "OK! This should be published. Stop the presses!" The flimsy premise is so ridiculous -- in the 1890s a man leaves his 15-year-old daughter in a brothel (for her protection) while he flees the country to save his own life.
The only thing worse about this (I hesitate to call it a book) is the narrator. Her flat voice and droning tone eventually made me give up on the book altogether. I can only surmise that it was just as boring for her to read it as it was for me to listen to it. If I actually owned the physical bound version, I would take it out and burn it.

This book is a major disappointment. The author goes way overboard with her erotic descriptions and senarios, to the point of boredom. It's rare that I don't finish a book but I couldn't force myself to finish this one.
