Great expectations

I was anxious to read this book. itīs no news that the traditional "Sleeping Beauty" tale is a metaphor for a young womanīs sexual awakening. I was fascinated that an author like Anne Rice worked on this myth. However, after a few compelling chapters - just when the relationship between Beauty and the Prince was starting to grow deeper, with the "breaking" of the Princess into a real woman - trough destroying the spell of prudish phantoms - situations start to repeat time after time, without a climax. What begins as an arousing fairy tale, recommended to those who need to shed innibitions by catharsic means - ends up as boring pile of exageration and BDSM extravaganza. I expected better.
