It was intense but I felt I was hovering outside the story, not part of it possibly for the reasons mentioned in the controversy, but probably because of the writing. Bizarre premise: the poetry-writing drug lord falls for the bookseller and then murders her family. As a former bookseller, nothing even comes close to this scenario.
