I had mixed feelings. On one hand, the protagonist is insufferable and the prose needs heavy editing (for example: "She was beautiful. Yes, a true beauty of womanhood, a rare key, polished, exalting in its supreme intention of unlocking a door- the prized door that mankind longs to unlock with regards to nature’s sexuality; she held in her simple features such radiance that even the moral-less kettle abandoned all reason and reflected her face as respectfully as it was able.")
On the other hand, I kept reading, right until the end. Somehow, I longed for Venica to reach the epiphany promised to her. The plot met my expectations, but I would not recommend this book due to the issues mentioned above.
