Hm. Well, as I said, I had only skimmed the first hundre or so pages. I didn't think there were actually sparkly vampires. I guess I was wrong.
I'm pretty sure the sparkly vampire stuff got taken out to prevent lawsuits and all that, still the story is otherwise unchanged from when it was still Edward and Bella or whatever the @#%^ those Twilight characters are named.
I'm just saying, don't expect good writing and don't think that this is anything like an actual BDSM relationship or in fact anything other than exactly what people in the BDSM community tell you to avoid because of how it's based on abuse and a one way power instead of mutual desire and trust.
Just from skimming, I can tell you the characters have been changed from the Twilight characters in that their situations, at the very least, are different. And I've already said I'm not expecting stellar prose here. Also, I am not interested in BDSM so that doesn't concern me.
My whole point, I suppose, is that I take some issue with Locke's comment that he's not comfortable with some chick thinking about "sparkly vampires" while having *** with him because she's read this book. That isnt what she would be thinking about because it's not in this book. So, basically, you haven't said anything different from my perseption of the book and it's origins.
