My Thoughts

 

If you're looking for something that's not too emotional with a little bit of angst, then this could be the one for you.  It’s a tough subject, done well, but with no over the top emotional stuff.  There is a lack of true depth to the characters, which left me feeling a little Meh about them overall.  But that is my most definable objection with this.  Oh…and I didn't really care for the guy narrator, his voice just didn't click with me.

Sex Factor:  Yes, there is some.  Not too overly explicit.
