If you are expecting a story filled with rapid, gratuitous sex, you will be disappointed with this tale. If you are expecting a story filled with four-letter and "forbidden" words, you will also be disappointed. I have nothing against those types of stories, and I have even written a few of them myself. However, the style of this story is different; it seeks to set a certain mood, which is in keeping with the personalities of the main characters. While sexual situations are described in detail, they play a secondary role to the main theme of the tale. This is a study of one man's relations with his wife, family and friends. It examines the emotions, which arise from such relationships; love, fear, friendship, jealousy, anger and remorse. It is a tale filled with the sentimentality that distinguishes man from the other creatures of this world.
