Read full description of the books Curious Wine:There are certain books classified as classics that are important in lesfic. Forrest's name comes up a lot because she was writing lesfic before many others. At least lesbian books that weren't considered pulp, that had horrible endings. This is a classic lesbian romance, that if you changed a few things, could be written today. And considering this was published when I was 1 years-old, that's pretty good.
The main characters do fall in love very quickly, but what I like about it was its sensuality. We don't see that often in books anymore. The touching and stroking and kissing, that doesn't just lead to sex, but is done because you love a person. It was nice to read. And overall I thought the sex scenes were pretty well written for 1983.
I do wish there wasn't a rape scene. It's not overly horrific, but I wasn't expecting it, so it was a bit jarring. And the character seemed to get over what happened to her at light speed.
I did feel like Daughters of a Coral Dawn, Forrest's classic sci-fi book, made me feel more. But I do understand why this is considered a classic.
