Lynn Matheson’s Reviews > Charles and Edward: A Modern Day Pretty Woman
4 of 5 stars
Read from February 21 to March 01, 2014
This book takes the form of e-mail exchanges between Charles, an upper class London book dealer and Edward, hairdresser by day and rent boy by night. It is fascinating to watch their relationship unfold. The ending had a twist I didn’t expect. There is poignancy in Charles’ need to feel there is love in the relationship though Edward’s need for money becomes clearer and clearer.
My only gripe is the many typos which gave the book a rough charm but ultimately irritated me.
