Thank you, Cate - interesting. The woman promoting it didn't sound too enthusiastic about it herself!
I can see why it might appeal to men as it's like an adolescent's sex fantasy - interesting that it was women who voted it off here.
There is of course some good writing but for me that doesn't compensate for the lack of characterisation (who could care about those nonentities?) and the juvenile attitude to women.
