Lydia McCloud meets Arthur Danse at a wedding party in Plymouth, N.H., and she thinks he's a man she could grow to love. Arthur sees things differently. In Lydia, he sees the sort of woman people always want to protect. He decides he's going to show her she wouldn't always be protected. Once their only child, Robert, is born, Arthur's behavior worsens. When the courts become involved, the nightmare really begins. This scathing novel is an indictment of a justice system that makes a mockery of its very name.

Entertainment? I think not
It is gratuitous nastiness. Nasty people and events are all around us but is it entertaining to slap you in the face with it? I think not. If folk do find this type of book entertaining - It is cause for concern about modern folk in general. I accept the world MAY be becoming more violent but readers of this sort of thing could be part of the reason for that. I have read horror books for decades and been entertained by most. Not this one
All of it - well what I read of it anyhow. I gave up fairly quickly. I don't mind some blood and guts and I've 'enjoyed' many a horror story (I'm a Stephen King, etc. reader) - but this book is just plain nasty
I'm not sure...I think the reading was in tone with the material so yes, I'd not have a problem with the performer
If this is symptomatic of acceptable, entertaining reading matter...it is a horrifying thought
