There are a couple of reasons why I shouldn't like this book;1. In part it deals with the topic of sexual slavery. That is women and sometimes children being treated as a commodity to be bought, sold and if no longer useful to be disposed of. I really can't deal with this issue, it's just too heartbreaking. 2. It's something of a Pygmalion story...a mousy unattractive librarian gets a make-over by a man, and all of a sudden brawls are starting because of her. So, why do I like it? Your guess is as good as mine, but I do.
