    One thought on “Daddy's Girl”

    1. OK. Whaou. Je m'attendais, avant de le lire, à un "Lolita" a la sauce moderne.Je me suis trompée.Rien à voir avec du Nobokov ! Certes en lisant le résumé , on ne pourrait s’empêcher d'y trouver une certaine ressemblance. Sauf qu'ici les personnages sont très très différents , et l'histoire parait bien plus réaliste. J'ai été très surprise, vraiment.De plus, c'est magnifiquement bien écrit. Un délice.Je suis encore toute abasourdie.C'est pour ça je vais m’arrêter ici, et peut [...]

    2. This book was unusual. It was written from the point of view of Olivia, a 14 year old girl who is seduced by her mother's new lover.I found it easy to read and a real page turner. But I did get a little annoyed with the main character, Olivia. Most of the time I just wanted to shake her for the choices she was making, and the difficulties she was putting other people through.I also found it quite annoying the way Olivia constantly refers to her mother as Mummy and her father as Daddy throughout [...]

    3. I've never left a comment before about a book, but I felt like I should for this one. I happened upon this in one of 's discussion groups, it took me a month to decide to read it because of the touchy, slightly taboo subject matter. I can honestly say this book made me think and even afterwards I can't help but still think about it. I won't go into the plot, but I will say this my heart has never ached so much for the fictional Olivia. Maybe it's because I'm a child of divorce, well I guess I do [...]

    4. I picked this book up at Heathrow airport to read while traveling. Was pleasantly surprised and finished the book during the flight (it was a long flight). I felt the book was well written and very believable although the subject is taboo. Not for everyone who may not like taboo subjects or steamy reads. Does anyone have any recommendations of similar books.

    5. This was the first book I ever read and enjoyed as a teenager. I picked it up, and did that whole flick through a couple of pages, and was instantly gripped and had to read more. The subject is unusual, but I'm sure things do happen like this, so was very believable. I found it to be a very emotional and gripping read.

    6. I like the way Inglis depict Olivia teen sexuality and her "first time" ,but not the "self punishment" maelstrom where Inglis push this girl,I feel Olivia character absolutely outdated in 1990 decade: Olivia seems Emmeline from Blue Lagoon

    7. Quel roman troublant On sent à quel point leur relation est malsaine mais aussi très intense et on veut tout de même savoir la suite C'est vraiment entraînant, bien écrit et très moderne pour un livre datant de 1994 !!
