I can't believe the hype, hysteria and hormonal hyperbole surrounding this book (or books).
My sister hasn't read since school, but she's reading it.
It's amazing that a book with a saucy reputation has got people, who don't normally read, to read. And in ye olde fashioned paperback too.
I can't comment on the content, style, structure, characterisation or leit motifs, because I haven't read it.
All I want to say is, I've never heard of a book so popular since Forever by Judy Blume. When everyone of the age of 12 at my secondary school wanted to read it. All I remember is that it was the first sexual encounter in a fictional book I'd ever read and Judy Blume was a teenage-fiction writer, not your Mills & Boon-esque genre.
I don't remember the main characters names but the girl in the story referred to her boyfriends penis as RALPH.
