How I Wish We Would Be Warned of Explicit Sex
I could not possibly recommend this to any of my friends, because of all the sexual mentions and sexual anatomy. I was so disappointed. There IS still a population who thinks a "lighthearted mystery" about a housewife is better without such things. I know the world has changed, but my friends and I haven't....
I stopped after about hearing - well, I can't write it. It would be considered porn if I wrote it in a review. I would have LIKED to finish the book for the plot's sake, but really. Let's just say the shock at the sexual descriptions overcame any interest I had at finding out the ending. I hate when I am blindsided by a book when the description leads me to think it is one thing and I feel it is something different. I thought it would be a fun spy novel with a housewife - doesn't that lead you to think satire? - but I guess my thoughts are different than others. Maybe I better stick to Mrs. Pollifax.
The narrator is good; in my mind she is lacking a little- I don't know - emotion? tempo? I have personal favorites a bit better, but she does a good job. She is good for the genre.
There is always so much that depends with that question it is impossible to answer. I've maybe seen about ten movies in my life they haven't wrecked from the book.
My comments are all in my first paragraphs. I cannot finish this book, because I do not like to hear about male anatomy swellings and all the things that go on in the bedroom. I always go to the reviews to see if anyone mentions these things and I did not see anything in the first few, and I didn't see anything in the descriptions that would give me an idea of this.
Now I have bought a book I have to go through the hassle of deleting and asking for a refund for which I do not like to do. Plus, I am sure no author likes to have their work "judged", so to speak, on a side topic- but if I don't put this down, other purchasers may find themselves in the same position.
