It's hard to know what to say about this book. It's about an almost non-stop sexual adventure of one Englishman, and I assume meant to be a "one handed read." Nothing wrong with that, as that's what I assumed when I bought it, but it really didn't work for me. The sex scenes, which are incredibly numerous, are described too briefly to really be arousing. It gets slightly better towards the middle, but it was still a bit too terse for me, and by that point it was also getting boringly similar. Every man the protagonist meets seems to want to have sex with him.
The background plot to this story is a trip up and down the Nile. Here again the story is a bit lackluster. Some of the text seems to come right out of a museum brochure. There are occasional glimpses that the author can write well, but it seems like he just couldn't be bothered most of the time.
