1.0 out of 5 stars Love Six, Love Six, 31 Jan 2008
This review is from: Double Fault (Paperback)
Double Fault is a 'double entendre' in this case, I fear. In order for a book to be appreciated, the author needs to develop realistic characters - not necessarily likeable, but realistic. This requires great care with dialogue and actions. I can only speak about Double Fault as far as page 42, and I only got there out of curiosity. The more I tried to visualise that 'tennis court tryst', the more I wondered how it would fare in the annual 'worst sex scene' literary competition (well up with the masters, I concluded). Eric's speech and Willy's thoughts seemed more appropriate to a college bar-room debate, than to actual foreplay. Equally improbable were the contortions of their first coupling: `Willy's back pressed the net cord; it groaned ... (he) lifted her to cradled the small of her back on the tape, crouched, stood and closed his eyes. Consequently Wilhemina Novinsky discovered what a match was like without the go-between meddling of a tennis ball'.
Wow. You won't find that position in the Kama Sutra.
And that's where I left them, because I couldn't bear to read any further. I do hope they didn't pull any muscles.
