Fathy never once felt pity for this narrator like I do for Lo, plain Lo, in the morning. On Amazon since it’s my prime source for any book reviewthis book received mixed reviews. The characters never face real challenges, not even in the graphic, hard-to-swallow climactic scene that is followed by a weird albeit atypical ending. It’s enjoyable and the ending is not terribly tragic as the abstract would have you believe so don’t fear it.


innoecnts With the promise of redefining the stereotypes of Lolita -esque relationships, I had very high expectations for this novel. Cathy Coote is an Australian author who was born in But give me a plot. This teasing leads up to a disturbing climax view spoiler [anal rape hide spoiler ] that left me disgusted.
