As their holiday unfolds, Colin and Maria are locked into their own intimacy. They groom themselves meticulously, as though someone is waiting for them who cares deeply about how they appear. When they meet a man with a disturbing story to tell, they become drawn into a fantasy of violence and obsession.

I'm registering this one for the "BookCrossing Convention Race to a Million" Challenge, book #125.

Wow! What a story. It left me behind with a weird, strange feeling. A very powerful story with a weird twist. A great read!

I'm bringing it to Castricum tomorrow for the BC-meeting and I'm giving it to powerhouse.
Next: MaaikeB?

Heeft Powerhouse dit niet gelezen? ik was wel benieuwd wat ze ervan vond. Moet ik hem nou lezen of was hij bestemd voor MaaikeB? Gaat zij dan wel naar Tilburg?
Wat een raadsels allemaal. Inderdaad, een mysterieus boek. Misschien krijg ik hem net uit in de trein op weg daarheen.

What a horrible story. Not only because of the violent outcome, but also because Colin and Mary remained strangers to me. I couldn't for the life of me understand what they were doing and why, if they loved eachother and what for, and why on earth they kept going back to this threatening situation when everything yelled at them to keep away. I cannot relate to people who choose to expose themselves to danger.
This one goes back to Powerhouse.
