Seriously, it's not the actual type of story so much as, um, content of a
graphic nature that I would not be able to get past. I'm fairly certain
that you're right and it's something I would enjoy. But my husband read it
and loved it and told me flat out that it would be a bad idea for me to read
it. He has always been right about this in the past.
I promise to be very sad about it though, if it makes you happier. :)
