I really like TBoD because it’s mature. Not mature in the ways of sex every other chapter and intense foul language, but a rather adult setting and environment, as in, the characters themselves are more mature.
And that may be due to the plot, how they are actually adults and such, but the way she writes makes it come alive.
It’s so beautiful, really, how it’s written. How two adult’s world collide with one another. It’s interesting because they’re adults, not teenagers, and that’s what makes their “crushes” on one another that much better, since they’re already married.
