This is a fascinating and completely engrossing book. I’d say novel, but, although there is an overall storyline, it’s made up of several vignettes spanning centuries with the a single grounding element, the titular House or more precisely a hidden chateau in the French countryside.
The book, although an excellent read, also has the steamiest sexual encounters I’ve ever read on the verge of being pornographic and ranging from beautifully passionate encounters to scorching multi-partner sex scenes that despite their circumstances are still incredibly sensual and leave a very lasting impression.
This is an incredible read, something worth keeping at your bedside table for those “special nights”.
