Going in I thought this would be a straight forward non-fiction look at female desire, focusing on the lives of three women. What I got was a book that is three women's stories regurgitated in a way that makes them read like fiction, the writing itself was emotive, raw and extremely well crafted but it just fell a little flat? I was unsure as the point of the book as I didn't seem to actually be about female desire at all. It was hard to read a lot of this book seen as it contains a lot of trauma, assault and abuse.
I feel like the goal for this book was brilliant but the execution less so. I would have probably much preferred it to be more like the Prologue and the Epilogue, reading the Prologue I thought that this was what I was in for and I was excited but sadly for me it did go downhill from there.
I will say that I can see Taddeo's writing talent and I will most likely be picking up her fictional novel that is out later this year to see if that is better suited to what I was after. I'm gutted that this fell flat for me after all the sparkling reviews and recommendations.
