I just read this book a few days ago and I was curious if anyone else has read it. Overall I found it to be a great read. I've had Boyle recommended to me in the past and I finally got around to reading one of his novels. I thought his portrayal of Kinsey was great as well as the general way in which he developed the story line. The only thing I have to gripe about with this novel is that it seems like Boyle included some particularly graphic/shocking scenes merely for their shock value. It could be just me that feels that way, I don't know. Anyways, what do you guys think?
