I have only just begun reading books from the lesbian romance genre, & I'm glad I chose Wild Things as one of the first to read. The story is well crafted & begs to be read in just a few hours. In fact, I have only had the book for four days & have already read it twice! The story tells of two women who have very different but equally difficult struggles with their past - Kallmaker's emotional depiction of these struggles makes it very easy to empathise with the two central characters. One of my favourite elements of the novel is Kallmaker's use of point of view. She manages to tell the story through the eyes of both central characters, using first person narrative for one, and third person for the other. This technique enabled me to identify, and most importantly like & respect, both Sydney and Faith. I am definitely looking forward to reading more by Karin Kallmaker.
