A devoted Anne Rice fan, I read this book because both the title and synopsis intrigued me. Very different to the 'Lives of the Mayfair Witches' or the 'Vampire Chronicles', it will take you down an engaging path to the road of Sado-Masochism and touches upon the deep-rooted desires of sexual slavery that may exist within us.
Exit to Eden also brings to the fore a very non-fictional fact... that both men and women have a vulnerable side - regardless of how well they conceal it!
The book is written in 'simple' English, which makes for a nice, easy read and an ideal travel companion - on the train to work, or away on the beach!
For the women (and men!) among us who have ever read a Mills & Boons book, you will notice a few mild similarities between this book and the well-known romance novels (i.e. short 'n' sweet with a basal storyline). But Mills & Boons would have been hard pushed to sculpt and bring to life the erotic elements of the tale as Anne Rice has!
When all is said and done, Exit to Eden is an entertaining, fantastical and highly erotic romance novel. Recommended for those of you who are adventurous, young at heart and enjoy being educated and entertained.
