  1. A surprising readarts off in typical upper class suburban family life style in 1960s London, very prim, very proper, very conservative But not so Things soon spice up sexually, criminally and finally profesionally I have read much cruder and graphic material anything Jasmine Haynes has written for instance but somehow the naivete and innocence of the backdrop and the open curiosity of the intimate discussions makes it very much shocking Not emotionally engaging but fascinating as a fly on the [...]


  2. Soft porn from the 1960 with not much else to offer except an obsession with public school boys The only real plot appears in the last 15 pages and it is rather contrived Interesting to note the restrictions placed on foreign travel in 1960s
