Although not something I would ever be able to read on my own time, I was enthralled with this story. I couldn't stop sitting back and whincing when I would read about HH's fantasies, but when I finished the book, I couldn't wait to tell the story to my friends. Like my professor mentioned, you don't realize how invested you become, and when you realize you are being sucked into a story by a pedaphile, it's pretty disturbing. But what an amazingly told story. I'm glad to have read it!
