Default Book Club: The Dress Lodger--Chapter 1

It totally took me by suprise as I was beginning the book, she's describing the filth and all, but in a very non-harsh kind of way, more as an aside, then all the sudden she's talking about frogs ****ing and spawning! I was like "Whoa! where did that come from"! Also this book ties in alot to things that already happened, is this a follow-up novel?


I thought the unexpected use of 'harsh language' was interesting, and kind of emphasized the acceptance of ugly/harsh things in that world. Even though I'm not a prude, I was a little shocked by it...

I'm pretty sure it's not a sequel or a take off on anything--it's probably just her writing style and the reader is just tossed into the deep end, so to speak.
