5.0 out of 5 stars breathtaking intimate sexy adventure, 28 Feb 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Slippery When Wet (Transita) (Paperback)
Slippery When Wet embraces riches and poverty, aristocracy of birth to aristocracy of the spirit, being wealthy in material terms to being rich in matters of the heart. It's an extraordinary scope and a journey told with a compulsive page turning beat. I'm ordinarily not much for love stories, but this one is so far beyond the margins of the ordinary that I went with it willingly. Most novels just explore our neuroses. Okay that can be amusing, but I can't take book after book of it. Or shelf after shelf of commercial thrillers either. When I find a real book I'm enthralled, and this is a REAL BOOK. It takes you breathlessly to the inner edge of the characters and lets you feel your own edges. And what characters they are. The lead female character starts out as exactly the sort of bored lost wealthy woman you've met a cocktail party. Unlike most of them she hasn't given up on life and plunges into the grit of Bangladesh, where she meets a real man one third her age and boredom is left far behind forever. And what a character he is, drawn with a tender understanding of life in teeming Bangladesh, he comes alive with warmth and sexiness and just a touch of danger. I don't cry at books, okay very often anyway. But I have to admit I cried at the end of this one, tears of relief, tears of recognition. This book is a must read. I've already read it four times. Go for it!
