Book Review

This book revolved around Virginia Templeton and her lady bits. Virginia, a high strung tyrant, was married with many lovers and a short fuse. She had a rough childhood and experienced molestation during that time. While it is not stated, I am assuming it was mentioned as the reason why she grew into the heartless person she became. Unfortunately, I could not connect with this story or the characters. I am left wondering why the men that came into contact with her desired her. There was also quite a bit of redundancy and overuse of the word "f**k".

 In addition to the slight echo, the narrator was not the proper choice. Virginia needed someone who could deliver the right amount of bite in the tone when she addressed those she came across. When something of note did occur, I had to rewind the story to pick up what happened previously. The narrator had a beautifully soothing voice that did not fit with this character. The story also ended as if one of the characters were mid-conversation. It was odd. Needless to say, this story was a miss for me.
