Spectacular - shocking and endearing in equal measure
I wanted it to go on for a few hundred more pages (*)
easy and quick read, storyline is a good idea
characters are bland, author fails to convert storyline into enjoyable read, not funny (*)
woke up more of the general population to the idea of "kink" as fun sex play
poorly researched, badly edited, awkwardly written sex scenes, dangerous sex practices (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (S)
Sensational... to those who love Katie Price.
Not a very creative plot and could have been better. (*)
easy to read, enjoyable, amusing
none really! (*)
Cleverly written, gripping mystery, well defined characters, historical elements
At 600 pages, it may be a little long for some (*)
A must for fans of this series
none (*)
Engaging, not too taxing, well-written
Rushed ending (*)

Fantastic
NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (*)
I was constantly intrigued by how the revelation would come to light. Great descriptive narrative.
Nothing really, although at over 500 pages, it's not a short read. (*)
chick-lit at it's best, unputdownable, good characters, well written, funny, not too predictable
you'll be sad when it ends (*)
Interesting structure, the insight into another culture
the interesting structure! (*)
A really intriguing and interesting book!
Some people may dislike the intellectual side (*)
