Curiously, for a first person novel, it is distant. I didn’t really connect with Elle; it’s more like watching a movie then sinking into Elle’s head.
But what a lovely movie! Slowly, we peel off the layers of Elle’s personality, and it is a sensual ride into her psyche.

FYI, Megan sent this to me.
This rates 5 out of 5, because I reread it again before writing this review and loved it just as much.
