The Horse Whisperer

Evans, Nicholas
Finally I am reading a book with very little violence and sex... whoops, spoke too soon!! Very little violence, anyway, compared to my usual books! This is a "chick" book, I think. No guy would ponder the motivation behind an act of fellatio! Anyway, except for the one long, boring sex act description (and one short one), and the totally unbelievable ending, it was a very good story. Somebody ought to make a movie out of it...
