This is the first novel of Bakers ive read.It is also the first ever erotic piece of work i've read, so it is fair to say i did not know what to expect.The book focuses on dialogue between two people engaged in erotic chat.The details are sharp,graphic and do not leave much to the imagination!!!However, as a female who just reads for pleasure, i did not find it pornographic.Indeed it was very tastefully done, and i enjoyed the interjection of the awkward moments of embarassement as they shared their intimacies and fantasies together.For some reason , i seemed to find it very americanised, and although a novel idea when first published, would seem old hat now with the growing popularity of
phone and cybersex.I did find parts of the dialogue unneccessary and cumbersome , making me want to scream out and say "hurry up and get on with it"!.However, it was an enjoyable easy read and did not take long for me to finish it.Baker certainly is able to paint pictures with his verbiage though and it certainly makes me want to read more of his work. This is not the sort of book i would lend my granny but i have urged my husband to read it!!!
