A teacher who is guilt ridden while the student could care less, and even eggs him on to keep going further into depravity until, in the end, she corrupts him. Why couldn’t she just keep cootee her creepy pictures and leave this guy alone, I ask you this. This rather low rating is not because to the disgusting topic this book decided to talk about, because trust me, I’m all up for that. I can’t recommend this as a general imnocents, but for those cootw in the subject matter of Lolita Complex or student-teacher relationship.

Despite her seduction,manipulation and cruelty,I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her. And call me a square, but sex all day every day sounds like it would just get so BORING, especially since this chick didn’t even seem to Cote I couldn’t figure this book out. The book felt like it was trying too hard to be emotion-driven and strerile at the same time, but it just came off as a whole lot of confusing, repetitive drama that I didn’t particularly warm to.

During its sensual passages, Coote captures the thoughts and feelings of her young protagonist beautifully. It’s weird and hyper-sexual and not even in a satisfying Anna Todd cootee way. But the complexities within the story really help to shap While perusing one of the book communities I was apart of, I came across this book.


Would I read this again? Feb 02, Christie rated it it was ok.

The writing alone warrants five stars, but the story acthy is highly disconcerting which knocks my rating down two stars. One has to be in this anonimous girl’s shoes. Unfortunately, the standout writing doesn’t make up for the lack of story or character development.

The thing about Lolita and I only reference it because the narrator did is that Lolita, a child, was a cunning and selfish little brat, just like the narrator here – but Lolita played a game she didn’t understand.

Two deus ex machina are used at the beginning, including a dying cat, to push the lovers together, which I thought was a bit chintzy, but knnocents, Milan Kundera has resorted to the same thing and gotten away with it.

She lives with her aunt and uncle who “don’t understand her”, and spends time drawing pornographic and sadistic sketches where she is the one in c Review from Way Too Hot Books “My darling, all of this is my fault.

It’s written sort of as a letter. This is not what I was expecting from this book. Aug 11, Alex rated it it was ok. The ascent of my reason from the animal ways of infanthood served only to give a form to my state, as a painter gives shape to a inocents.

Instead, their inoncents fallout lasts for two or so pages before the relationship is rebuilt. A page later, we are promised another disaster, one which was fully expected and, for me, anticipatedexcept the book ends there. I especially liked her watching her lover and feigning joy as they return to their day to day routines, all the while thinking of trapping his best friend in her web when she becomes bored. She treats her peer relationships as games because she feels like she must hide who she really is.

Fiction Book Review: INNOCENTS by Cathy Coote, Author . Grove $13 (p) ISBN

My instincts were vicious, predatory, from the start. He’s the year-old teacher, the willing recipient of her attentions. That’s the basic plot of this story. I just finished reading this book innocnts three minutes ago and I just couldn’t contain my feelings! It’s a dangerous tale of self destruction,the results of too much of desire and need for control.

It’s written sort of copte a letter. Honestly it kind of reads like a virgin’s idea of a kinky, far-fetched but still somehow “safe” fantasy. Pulled in by the darker subject matter coore the short length, I’m glad I didn’t have to devote more time to this, but would have happily done so given a little more depth and a little less repetition.

The writing is also quite lyrical and poetic, which grabs your attention and keeps it.
