Gali quick question, do you think this book is considered erotic?

I dont know if you had read "the last picture show" but it was erotic and i didnt like it (unfortunatly i had to read it for english) thats why im asking you

Thanks

I haven't read that book. I don't think this book is erotic, but there are a few sex scenes in it. If you don't like it, the book probably won't be to your taste. :)

Very through explanation and review; This particular genre isn't my strong suit but I can fully respect a good review on the subject. Without reading the book, your viewpoints gave great insight into the overall theme of the story and almost made me feel like I was in it for a moment. I was waiting on some type of hook line and sinker at some point but I suppose not everything is looking for the big catch so to speak. Its a story about love, loss, rebuilding, re exploring, and ultimately trying to survive/develop new love at a later age. Very Inspiring.

I like all kinds of books and don't always look for "the big catch" in them.
