Sama w sumie nie wiem czego oczekiwałam od tej książki. Nie czuję rozczarowania czy jakiejś specjalnej radości, że przeczytałam. Czy można napisać pięknie o miłości i romansie, pobudzając wyobraźnie nie używając zbędnych słów by opisać miłosne i seksualne uniesienia? Owszem można i ta książka jest t...
Really, a very tender and beautiful love story. I'm not a subscriber to its philosophy, but I think that it is very true to itself and quite interesting. There is nothing overtly lurid in its sexuality; compared to today's use of sex in stories, it is extremely tasteful - even soulful. My one issue ...
