It's crazy how much i loved this story. It is normally not my style, but you should read. ( )

This is Anne Rice's '50 shades of Grey" and she blows that piece of garbage out of the water. This book is erotic to its very core without being totally smutty. Well written and full of sex appeal. ( )

This is my third or fourth time reading Belinda. I first read it when I was about 14 -when I was younger than Belinda herself! - and then again in college, and it's always been a guilty pleasure. Enjoyable, gripping and even pseudo-intellectual.

That said, reading a love story between a 16 yr old and 44 yr old as a 27 year old feels very different. I'm definitely a little more skeptical and leery about the whole thing now.

But I still can't put it down! ( )

Yes, this book has an unbelievable storyline (attractive author begins a sexual relationship with a troubled teenage girl).

Yes, it has a very dramatic ending.

Yes, there are erotic elements (although pretty tame for Anne Rice).

But I couldn't stop reading it. I guess every once in a while you just need a trashy (although still well-written) read. I'm not ashamed of liking it, and you shouldn't be either! ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0425176657, Paperback)

An erotic and controversial tale of seduction and obsession from the best-selling author of Exit to Eden. Belinda is the ultimate fantasy. A golden-haired object of desire, fresh and uninhibited. But to Jeremy Walker, a handsome and famous 44-year old illustrator of children's books, Belinda is a forbidden passion, both beguiling and bewitching.
