This was crude, vulgar, and absolutely lacking in lasting literary merit. That said, I really enjoyed it. Though I don't swear myself, sometimes I find it funny. I guess one part of adolescence that sticks with me. The formula of having someone lacking in social graces enter the royal world is popular and funny. But in this one the royal family isn't exactly the most formal either. The dialogue was very enjoyable. But if swearing bothers you at all, don't read this, don't even acknowledge that you know I read it. It's too hot to read serious important type books.
